The Return of The Lost Vikings

The lost boys are back: Erik the Swift, Baleog the Fierce and Olaf the Stout. This action-strategy is not for the lame of brain. In their last adventure, the trio escaped from the evil alien captor, Tomator. Now, armed with all new high-tech weaponry the boys heisted from Tomator, they set out to find the time machine that will land them back home. It's your challenge to complete each of the levels with all three characters alive and kickin'.

31 levels of mind-bending play

Requirements:

IBM or 100% compatible Pentium 60 or higher with Windows 95 using DOS mode, 2x CD-ROM drive, 16MB RAM, VESA compatible SVGA video adapter, 100% Microsoft compatible mouse, hard drive with minimum 4MB free space, Sound Blaster or 100% compatible sound card.

DOS games do not work on Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7, 8, or 10 and we do not offer technical support for DOS games running on such systems. However, if you really want to run games like this on your fast new computer you should try using DOSBox. The DOSBox OpenSource DOS emulator is an excellent piece of work which we can highly recommend. It isn't possible for us to guarantee that it will work well for you, however, especially on other graphic-intensive DOS games. For older DOS games it should work fairly well with any machine capable of running the newer operating systems.

To start with, you will need to download the Win32 Installer using this link: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/download.php?main=1

The README file included with DOSBox will tell you what you need to know. If you find it a bit too technical, just click on The Newbie's Pictoral Guide to DOSBox on the following page: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewforum.php?f=39

We find that it is best to create a separate shortcut for each DOSBox game. That makes starting the game easier and also makes full screen mode easier to deal with.

Viking Bios

Dissatisfied with his job as senior polar bear wrangler, Baleog the Fierce auditioned for the Nordic Gladiators but stomped out in disgust when he was barred from bringing his own weaponry. It was then that Baleog realized his responsibility to pass on his skills to the next generation of Vikings. He formed Baleog's School of Plunder, with a popular curriculum focusing on Pillaging, Plundering, and Setting Things On Fire. He became famous throughout Scandinavia for a brilliant lecture course entitled Geat-Crushing In Three Easy Steps. ("Step One: Select a Geat. Step Two: Aim high. Step Three: Crush.") He then went on a tour promoting his book Stalking The Wild Geat and its wildly successful sequel Just What IS A Geat, Anyway?

Olaf the Stout decided to pursue his dream of becoming a sumo wrestler and set off in search of the Land of the Rising Sun. He made it as far as the Land of the Noonish Sun before he turned back - not because the journey was too tough but because he couldn't find lasagna anywhere beyond the Mediterranean. Instead, he returned sheepishly home to his family and devoted himself to instructing his children in the arts of swordsmanship, looting, thundering, and making decent goat cheese. Both of his daughters now attend the Baleog School of Plunder - Olaf is especially proud of his eldest, Gerda, who has achieved the rank of Honorary Valkyrie AND can out eat her dad any day of the week. Olaf has appeared on "Lifestyles Of The Large & Bearded" and is busy working on a Combat Frisbee, although the neighbors insist that the idea will never fly.

Erik the Swift's experiences in outer space left him bored with village life. He ended up with the mystic Order of the Leaping Mountain Goat, where he finally learned peace, enlightenment, and how to eat a tin can whole. In fact, Erik emptied his mind so thoroughly that he then spent months wandering around dazed and confused, sculpting fjords out of mashed potatoes and believing he was an iguana. He regained his memory after several knocks on the head, all self-inflicted whilst attempting to ram open a can of tuna: <> "Wait a minute! I'm not an iguana at all!" <> "Heeey, I'm Erik the Swift!" He swiped a ship and hurried home to the village, where he was warmly greeted by his brothers...especially Olaf, who was thrilled to discover that his own journey had NOT been the most ridiculous one in the history of the village, after all.

Reviews:

The Adrenaline Vault by Pete Hines

"...In this combination action/strategy/puzzle game, you must use the skills of each hero and the help of friends they meet along the way to get them back home. With skill, brains, a little luck, and a good sense of humor, you might just make it."

"...The enemy characters were not terribly difficult to defeat and acted rather predictably. That was ok though, because the game was hard enough to play as it was. Besides, it was really designed to be more of a puzzle game than an action game with lots of shooting, etc."

"I found Norse by Norsewest to be very entertaining and a nice change of pace. Essentially, I liked this game because I had a lot of fun. It was easy to pick up and kept my attention with each new level. There are not a lot of games out there like this one. The interface is simple, the objective is clear, and the levels are challenging and entertaining enough to keep the player engrossed. The graphics and FX definitely could have been better, but the appeal of this game is the challenge and fun it provides..."
