The Lost Vikings is an adventure game featuring three Vikings who have been abducted by aliens. Each Viking has a different skill, and the three must be used in combination to reach the exit in each level. In general, Erik the Swift can jump and ram things with his head, Baleog the Fierce can fight with a sword or bow and arrow, and Olaf the Stout can use his shield to defend, as a parachute, or to hold the other Vikings above his head. Each Viking has a health bar, and the level cannot be completed if any of the Vikings are killed: all three Vikings must reach the exit to advance to the next level. Fortunately, a number of power-ups can be found in the levels to restore health or kill enemies. The demo features worlds 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, and 2-2. There are 20 levels in this game, with only 4 levels playable in the shareware demo. The full version is now freeware, but it can't be distributed without permission, so you'll need to go to Blizzard's website to download it.
