An epic game requires one strong in the force to create a thread about it

I've been playing for a few days now and I absolutely love the game. Even the menu and shop have a ton of polish (notice the lights swing with the accelerometer)

If you prefer casual games (like i do) you can just fling your viking as many times as you want without penalty. However there is a leaderboard for efficiency if you think you can beat each of the 43 islands with one shot each.

Check out screen 4 of 5.

You slide the blonde viking left or right. his weight tips the ship and creates the shot angle.

You then tap the orange haired viking sitting in the catapult and pull him back, which sets the power. Letting go is what sends him flying.

Once airborne you use the accelerometer to get some left and right motion, Swiping down does a buttslam which you use to bounce off things.

There are also other ingame items you can use to further or alter your flight as well (the viking holding a rock is one of them)

oh snap! You can buy a ship that looks like a snake!


Ok, all kidding aside. I know it's soon but can anyone post a video on the gamplay? The artwork looks intriguing but I would really like to see it in action.
