Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is the perfect agenda-setting debut game for Rovio's new publishing effort, Rovio Stars.
For one thing, it concerns that most intrepid and pioneering of people, the Vikings.
For another, its gameplay literally involves breaking new ground, not to mention exploring a number of new physics-based mechanics.
But more importantly, it's really, REALLY good.
Breaking new ground
You're the new recruit in a tribe of the least threatening, most charming Scandinavian warriors you could ever meet. Your speciality may be slicing and dicing stuff from the deck of your little ship, but it's more likely to be ice floes and dangling ropes than English monks.
Witty, varied, challenging and gorgeous to look at, Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is one of the finest physics-based puzzlers on iOS and an outstanding start for Rovio Stars
