[Update] Vikings: An Archer's Journey is a stunning hybrid of auto-runner and shoot 'em up, out now on iOS
Updated 27th October, 08:50 AM: The day's here at last where you can get your hands on this beautiful game.
Vikings: An Archer's Journey is a stunning side-scrolling shooter that's well worth a look, so grab the game here on the App Store for £2.29/$2.99.
You may have seen PINPIN TEAM's newest title bobbing around recently and for good reason. As of today we've learned that you don't have long to wait for Vikings: An Archer's Journey as it comes out next week.
With a stunning graphical style, Vikings: An Archer's Journey is a definite mix between endless runner and shooter. You've got to be quick to respond to enemies as you dash across a snowy landscape, but by picking up Runes you can turn the odds more in your favour as they help slow down time, shoot multiple arrows, and many more power-ups.
There are a variety of stunning baddies, all of whom have a 'cyborg-meets-mythology' feel to them as they stand out with bright, pink eyes. You may notice that it actually looks quite similar to Lichtspeer, the spear-throwing action game which game out recently on console and PC, and will shortly be coming out on PS Vita.
It's a great looking game, and an interesting concept, but will the play be varied enough to let you sit there and play it for hours on end? We'll have to wait and see. Vikings: An Archer's Journey is so far set for release on the App Store next Thursday 27th October for £2.29/€2.99/$2.99.
