Hey Poor Player (Dec 13, 2016)
As I already outlined, Viking Raiders is certainly nothing special at all when it comes to graphics and sound. Both are simple at best, but do the job well enough to convey the Nordic chaos going on. The controls aren’t the best either, with all of the players hunched around the same keyboard. But Viking Raiders is just amazingly addictive and strangely compulsive, even when playing on your own. Little touches like the randomly generated landscapes and ability to rename the players also helps, and adds a nice little bit of personalisation. While we had the multiplayer madness of Worms in the nineties, back in the eighties we had Viking Raiders. One of the best reasons to own a ZX Spectrum and one of my greatest childhood memories too.

The program is well presented, with lots of useful prompts which flash up at the bottom of the screen during loading and play. The documentation is good - back up by good instruction screens within the game itself. The graphics are not much to write home about - but who cares when you can get an entertaining game for just £2.50? Good value, Firebird!
