Already got this but haven't gotten around to starting it yet. It's got uniformly positive reviews, so I see little reason not to get it. Just curious, though: does it play anything like that old SNES classic, The Lost Vikings, where each viking's unique powers had to be utilised to get to the end of the level?

Might be because of their new game!
As for @sinagog I don't know which you are talking about but it's more like save the day type! You are a Viking on a voyage to save your fellows. You slice and smash the ice and solve puzzles to get them to safety! It's a very good Puzzle game!

It's showing up $2.99 for the universal app and $.99 for the iPhone in the US. Did I miss the sale? Or perhaps, just perhaps I'm too early...

No this game is not like The Lost Vikings for SNES.. I wish someone would port that one though.. missed playing it.

Had a lot of fun with this one, a Rovio Stars release if I am not mistaken. Worth a download and it was worth $0.99 too.

Both versions show free now. If they don't for you go look something else up on the store then look it up again.

How bad is the IAP in this? Is it pushy bad with pay walls or is it just for cheating? Guess I'll lock in the licenses either way.

And yeah 8bit Doves is live as well so I'm guessing this is to celebrate that launch which is kind of weird but who am I to say no to a free game that will distract me from buying the new one. Heck it may encourage me to buy it.
