    It's just another cool day of Nordic seafaring and pillaging when Erik the Swift™, Beleog the Fierce™ and Olaf the Stout™ are suddenly sucked into an alien spaceship. And only you can help them find their way home. But each mysterious door you help them through throws them into different eras in time--and smack into new enemies!
    Will Baleog conquer Elmo the Dinosaur in Prehistoria?
    Will Olaf shield himself from the berserker mummies in the Great Pyramids of Egypt?
    And can Erik outrun the maniacal ripsaw in the Great Factory?
    Hurry! Only you can get your plundering pals out of the grasp of their alien captors and home through the chaotic arcade action.

    • Blast your way into different worlds, including Prehistoria, Egypt, The Great Factory, Wacky World and more.
    • Feel the power rush as you control the unique, radical moves of all three Vikings.

    • An infectious musical score with an incredible beat.
