An old-school style brutal two-dimensional platformer, in which we lead the title Viking named Völgarr. The game is a debut project of the independent American studio Crazy Viking, whose creators have worked on high-budget productions for 3DS mobile consoles and GameBoy Advance.

According to the developers' intention, the game is a nostalgic reference to the golden age of arcades, when video games were "really difficult" and were a challenge for every player. Cult titles from that time, available on lounge machines and 16-bit computers, instead of graphic fireworks focused primarily on addictive gameplay. In terms of mechanics Volgarr The Viking is such a classic, side-scroll slasher with a quite extensive combat system. Despite quite simple rules, the game is not at all easy, and it is not difficult to die at every step. So in the game will find without difficulty fans of hardcore action in the retro style.

The action of the game is set in a fantasy world, referring to the series about Conan's adventures. Its hero, warrior Völgarr, is revived by Odin to kill the army of the evil dwarf Fafnir. In order to accomplish his mission, our protagonist travels alone through a land occupied by an army of monsters, confronting more than forty stronger and stronger opponents and the ingenious traps lurking in his wake. On our way there will also be powerful bosses, often filling most of the screen. We have 7 different worlds to overcome, divided into more than 30 levels, which we can explore by choosing one of several alternative paths. The choices made during the game will eventually lead us to one of several different ends.

The game's graphic design is composed of thousands of hand-drawn animation frames, which, although maintained in a retro style, have been prepared in high resolution. The developers will try to provide a fully customizable control system, and support for game controllers. Our struggle is accompanied by an epic soundtrack performed by the orchestra.
