App description: 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.

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!

Gameplay based on precision (arrow firing) and quick reflexes (infinite runner feature).

I beta-tested this game and just plopped down my shekels for the full game. The stylistic theme reminds me somewhat of "Alto's Adventures for Vikings". The game is an engaging infinite runner with a uniquely challenging twist that simultaneously entertains and tortures (That's probably more of a commentary on my level of suckiness)

I beta tested the game and the developer is constantly making great changes to the game and adding lots of content .
It's a very unique runner with quests and unlocks.
Very very very fun and I rate it 5 stars

looks nice, but endless runners are a no-go for me, even if they're free, which this isn't.

What in the sweet golden hell is the point of this comment? If you don't like runners, why are you reading and commenting in the thread for a runner game!?

I hate sushi, but I don't go into every sushi restaurant I walk by and proudly declare "Your food looks really cool, but I don't like that type of food, so I won't be buying any of it. Good day!"

Absolutely no reason for me to continue typing what I wanted to post. Thank you.
