Got this indie game during the recent Steam sale, and it's outstanding! There's no in-game story or text, it's just a very old-school SNES-like platformer where you control a viking that can jump / attack / throw spears. And that's it. And it's a blast to play!

A word of warning though: there's only a very limited save sytem. Only after finishing a world (made of 2 levels, each will take about 10 to 15 minutes I guess) does the game save. After 3 hours of playing (and about 100 deaths), I've just beaten world 1, so it's quite punishing. It feels fair though. You're punished for every mistake you make, but the game doesn't cheat. But you get a real kick for advancing through a level, and I'd like to believe that it's making me a better player.

So, in short, a tribute to the old arcade and SNES-games, with a steep but fair difficulty.

How I know I probably won't buy this game: the first half of one of the trailers just shows the character dying over and over icon_lol

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.
