1001 Video Games
The Lost Vikings
appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
by General Editor Tony Mott.
Blizzard used to have a flash rendered demo of the game at http://www.blizzard.com/blizzclassic/vikingsdemo.shtml
There's all kinds of hidden dialog to the game if the Vikings are doing poorly. After being defeated constantly on a level, the Vikings will start talking about how difficult it is, insulting the player and even consulting Norse gods for additional inspiration.
Included in the US DOS release was an 11x17" poster, "The Lost Vikings: Your Voyage to an Incredible Adventure Through Time."
On May 2, 2014, the game was released for free through Blizzard's online gaming platform Battle.net.

, there is a dungeon called "Uldaman" where the three vikings appear as NPCs (non-playable characters), related to a quest called "The Lost Dwarves".
