Alors qu’on aurait pu craindre un énième jeu typé rétro sans grande envergure, les développeurs de Crazy Viking nous en mettent plein la vue ! Völgarr est un titre difficile certes, mais absolument pas frustrant grâce à l’alchimie parfaite qui opère entre son level design et son gameplay. Rigoureux, brutal, sanglant, on a tout ce qu’on pouvait attendre d’un tel jeu ; sans oublier l’immense satisfaction d’en avoir vu la fin après quelques heures de souffrances. Voilà un titre qui fera sans l’ombre d’un doute le bonheur des joueurs nostalgiques en manque de challenge !

Crazy Viking Studios nails the concept of implementing elements that immediately takes us back to the frustrating days of SEGA and SNES games that forced players to write angry letters to the developers asking for easier versions. Compounded with astounding 2D visuals and art, the tight controls and trial-and-error gameplay, Volgarr is a appropriate addition to characters that embody the meaning of perseverance. Despite the lack of leniency, this game is definitely worth losing your hair over. It’ll kick you in the ass several times, but that’s honestly the best part about it.

Like a drill sergeant, Volgarr the Viking is here to yank us out of our comfort zone and put us through hell unending. If you survive, you'll feel like the biggest badass of all time.

In order to cater to the tiny niche of gamers who actually like being punished at every turn and replaying the same section of a level over and over again (borderline OCD cases I'll wager), indie developers are repeatedly making these games - games that could be some of the most enjoyable on the market - borderline unplayable. Despite Volgarr immediately taking me back to the days that I would pump coins into the Rastan coin-op as fast as my little hands would allow, and giving me some incredibly engaging 2D platform hack and slash action, it simply destroyed my will to continue thanks to the horrific difficulty level that only ends up amplifying Volgarr's flaws, flaws I could otherwise have happily overlooked. Volgarr is a wasted opportunity, it could have been one of the best games around, but it beat me into submission until I simply had no desire ever to return to it.

Crazy Viking Studios describes Volgarr the Viking as a “return to the Golden Age of arcades” and possessing “all the hallmarks of the true classics”. Nothing wrong with bringing the classics back. Bringing all the bad with the good from those classic games, however, is an example of not learning from past mistakes.
