App description: Everyone loves Bjorn & his Vikings crew! Check out the amazing reviews below:

Gamezebo (4/5 Stars): "Such a simple game lives and dies by its control system, and Vikings Row's is as fresh and as subtle as they come. The Vikings might be long-gone, but this new digital invasion should be welcomed with open arms." http://bit.ly/cyMilg

Touch Arcade: "It uses a really clever control mechanic, has a wonderful art style, and a ton of content to play through including earning medals for each level and unlocking achievements. Every once in a while a game comes along that just feels right on this platform, and Vikings Row! is one of those games." http://bit.ly/96YDov

Pocket Gamer: "Adding to the experience are various sail customization options for your boat, and an achievement system, which seems to be an I-play special. Together with neat presentation, it all adds up to a nice little package." http://bit.ly/95yliE

Gizmodo: It's harder than I thought (to be a virtual Viking), which means it was a whole lot of fun. http://gizmo.do/bGn6RX

148 Apps (4/5 Stars): What makes Vikings Row! special is the way that the app goes about letting you control the ship. Instead of some kind of arbitrary accelerometer system, the game uses a control system that mirrors the way the Vikings would actually be rowing. http://bit.ly/9V4Hfa

Game On Mac: Retailing for under a buck, arcade Viking players can't lose. http://bit.ly/9HaTCX

Touch My Apps: There are also hidden challenges that will allow you to earn more than 15 awards. It might not be a pirates life for them, but it still sounds like fun. http://bit.ly/d7xZ86

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Anyone know about the controls? Don't see any directionals so hoping it is not just tilt.

Hey, I am head of design at I-play, we are really excited about the controls, so glad you asked!

What are the controls?
We are trying to innovate and find new ways to play games on the iphone! So Vikings Row! is entirely designed around a simple rowing gesture scheme. To play the game players must swipe either side of the Viking longship as if their fingers were oars!

Swiping one finger will make the boat turn, swiping both sides at the same time will make the boat move forward or backwards. In practice its very cool!

We designed the entire game around this mechanic, you will find crazy dangers and monsters appear in later levels to test your skills. We also take you on a crazy ride through ice worlds, hell and the insides of a Whale!

Hopefully you can grab a copy of the game and let us know what you think.

Thanks.
