The game tells the story of oddmar who is a bit of a misfit in his village of vikings until he gets special powers to help him to valhalla. The game is set over 24 nicely crafted levels set over 4 worlds. The game is free to download and then just a one off in app purchase to unlock all the levels, I’ve just quickly played it and got to level 4, so assume will purchase after the first world. The price is only £3.69 which is good value for a game of this quality.
The graphics of the game are a very vibrant cartoon style which fits really well, the art style remind me of some of the Rayman games from a few years ago like legends and origins. Oddmar has 3 different abilities jump, attach and power bounce. I love the way he jumps by creating mushrooms that he jumps from which is great fun to watch. As are all the animations within the game, this includes the intros to each level.
The controls are just swipe left or right on the left side of the screen and tap in different places on the right for each of the abilities. Though the one great welcome addition to this game is support for controllers. This is one thing that is missing from a lot of mobile games. Playing with a physical controller just makes any game more fun. I have an ipega extendable game controller that I use with my android devices so can get the feel of a proper console like the Nintendo switch but using my mobile or tablet.
The gameplay is like any other platform game, collecting items, moving items to help complete the level of get to other areas. Killing enemies etc. There is a bit of replay value so you 100% each level by collecting all the coins, finding the secret coins, speed run and completing the special areas of the levels. Each level doesn’t take that long to complete so great for when you only have a small amount of time to play on the go etc.
The game is by developed by a small independent company mobi.ge and published by Senri (who are behind another great platformer Leo’s fortune available on all formats)
