Another Irresistible Viking Adventure
BASED ON DEMO
My favourite type of game is the HOPA, preferably one with no timer and no pressure. Yet, if I am not playing a HOG, there’s only a couple of other games where you’ll catch me. The original Northern Tale is one, my brave and sturdy Vikings with me, trying to beat the clock.
What does this build/time management/strategy game (I never know what to call these things) have that most do not?
Well, one thing is definitely the option of playing with no timer, which I love to have, but then don’t always use, lol. There is also an option to ‘queue’ your orders to the Vikings, allowing you to ‘think in advance’, and I love this mode. I believe one day I’ll actually win one of these games in multi-click mode, but I haven’t yet.
It goes without saying, that if you loved the first one of the series, you’ll love this one. There are few obvious signs of change. It looks and feels and sounds very similar. But the graphics really are more exciting and do give the game more depth. Everything else you’d like is the same. Like:
The 3 modes of play – normal, multi-click, no timer
45 levels, with 5 bonus levels which you can only play if you complete the main game.
Top scores and Awards are kept in main menu.
You can repeat any level you’ve tried before.
Nice touches like having a side panel for widescreen players.
The option to switch off the voices, the music, the sounds
Nice little Vikings are again running around making their “can do” way through all obstacles. And new characters and critters to meet - though I didn’t get to meet the promised mermaids and mushrooms, but I’m looking forward to it!
My one issue is nothing really. The game is v.e.r.y. slow to load.
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
It is a fun little game, and worthy of many replays for a novice like me.I Recommend This Game!
