Vikings: An Archer’s Journey, the good lookin Runner-Shooter

Concept

With its minimalist graphic style, this mix between a “shoot ’em up” and “infinite runner” game will delight a whole range of players: the game is easy to learn but difficult to master!

Nott, a Valkyrie with a tenacious character, has incurred the wrath of the Viking gods who, as punishment, have sent her loyal wolf Oder into the Underworld.

At a loss without her loyal companion, Nott goes in search of him within the cold and misty dwelling of the deceased known as “Helheim”.

Fortunately, Nott is a formidable archer, so she’ll be able to collect special arrows along the way to help her overcome the evil monsters drawn straight from Nordic legends.

Along her journey, Nott will also have to gain the support of several Viking heroes fallen in battle. They will help her complete her Odyssey, and in return, once reunited with Oder, Nott and her faithful companion will get them out of hell.

Reviews

  • TouchArcade : “(…) Sometimes the way a game looks is enough to get my attention without even seeing the gameplay, and that’s the case with Vikings: An Archer’s Journey in our forums. The colors are fun and the overall aesthetic is intriguing, but Vikings: An Archer’s Journeyseems to have more going for it than just fun art. (…)”  link

 

  • PocketGamer : “(…)With a stunning graphical style, Vikings: An Archer’s Journey is a definite mix between endless runner and shooter. You’ve got to be quick to respond to enemies as you dash across a snowy landscape, but by picking up Runes you can turn the odds more in your favour as they help slow down time, shoot multiple arrows, and many more power-ups.(…)” link
