Summary

A very good platformer. Two thumbs up, way up!!!

The Good

The originality and uniqueness of it all was the thing that really lifted The Lost Vikings into stardom. This game could be classed as a Puzzle solving platformer. I liked the graphics, not up to Prince of Persia standard, but very good nonetheless.

The Bad

Some parts of the game were a bit lame. Like the sound. And sometimes the sprites moved a bit slow, and were jerky. Some parts of the game were a bit difficult. That's about all. Other than these things, The Lost Vikings is a great game!!!

The Bottom Line

I would buy it for it's replay value. You can play it over and over and never get tired of it!!! If you see the boxed version, get it because that's pretty hard to get nowadays.
