Cartoony side-scroller where you take the role of, as the title states, a viking child, in his quest to free his friends and family, held by the evil god Loki inside the Great Halls of Valhalla.
Fight your way through 16 levels with diverse scenarios, including medieval castles and mountains. Spread throughout the levels are shops in which you can buy potions and other magical items to help you along the way. Before you finally face the Dark Lord Loki, you must also defeat the 8 Apprentices of Darkness.
The game features colorful graphics and 22 different tunes to make the whole trip a bit more pleasant.
Life could have been so easy for the little Viking Brian. But one day when his master sent him out to gather herbs while the evil god Loki destroys the village he lives in and imprisons Brian's whole family. However, the oracle of the gods foretold that our young hero once will be a great Viking leader and so he goes on the quest to rescue his family and restore peace in troubled lands.
Brian's adventures take him to many dangerous places in Odin's world. He wanders through dark labyrinths, murky woods and even passes a pyramid. He encounters many foes and evil creatures and will have to fight against the eight apprentices of the dark lord Loki. Fortunately Brian meets friendly shopkeepers on his quest who sell weapons and magic items from their stores in caverns and houses everywhere in the land. Even though these items may help our hero on his quest he still needs to use all his skills in order to rescue his loved ones who are scattered somewhere in the sixteen magical lands that need to be visited.
When the quest reaches its finale, Brian faces Loki himself. Loki needs to be beaten forever so that the evil son of great Odin will never again be able to bring destruction and death to the magical land. After succeeding, the prophecy is fulfilled and the gods reward little Brian. The Viking's Child's family is united again - happy end.
This jump and run game is fun! Well, we heard stories like this three billion times before but Brian is a truly lovable protagonist that really needs your help. (If you do not help him he wouldn't even move...) Jump your way from level to level, collect coins, find hidden shops, reveal the foes (that are sometimes hidden) to complete your tasks and jump and run even more... With level codes that are provided during the game, you can restart at different places - for those who do not play through it in one session.
The graphics are cute! We do not have as fluent animation as we have in Prince of Persia but Brian is a funny guy. Screaming (at least he looks like it) when he falls down somewhere and always willing to explore the rest of the level with a smile on his face. You control him with the arrow keys. Take Enter to enter a shop and press space to select your special weapons. To fire a special weapon use the down-arrow. (which is a very bad key for it, because when wanting to move Brian you will hit this key every now and then by mistake).
The sound is great! You will have a very nice background music that fits perfectly into this game!
Being a friend of this genre I can just recommend to play this game! There is nothing missing except the sound effects and the controls are quite good. I give a rating of 4 stars for this game that somehow (and I don not know why) did not make its way to the heavens of the evergreens.
Welcome to Odin's world. A land full of good and evil, within which you must become Brian, The Viking Child, whose heroics have been foretold by the prophets and recorded in the oracle of the gods. But there's trouble in the land that you live in... Your family and friends are being held on the astral plane, imprisoned by the forces of darkness in an effort to foil the prophecy and install chaos throughout the land....
As Brian, your adventure in Prophecy 1 - The Viking Child will take you through many beautiful, but dangerous places, where you'll encounter great adversaries. Amongst these will be the eight apprentices of evil, slaves to the Dark Lord Loki, who will force you to fight or question your purpose under threat of punishment or penalty. Friendly shopkeepers will sell you items of worth, that will aid you on your quest. There are sixteen levels, each with its own backgrounds, enemies, and items. There are even puzzle elements similar to Bitmap Brothers' classic Gods. Overall, a great platform/puzzle hybrid that should please all fans of the genre, not least because of the long levels you'll have to make your way through. Recommended!
