    A thoroughly enjoyable action puzzler that will definitely tax your brain with some of the challenges that the original level designers created.
  2. I found myself going back to the game an hour after turning it off and saying, "That's it, I quit! I can't take this anymore!" Its unique, strangely appealing gameplay style is secretly addictive.
  3. Cheat Code Central
    It will take time to learn each characters special abilities but the whole game offers some great site gags and warped humor.
  4. 86
    A surprisingly good remake of an unsung classic.
  5. Unfortunately, the difficulty never lets up in the thirty-seven levels.
  6. 80
    One of the best hand-held games currently going... If an action-puzzle game with old-school sensibilities sounds like your cup of grog, The Lost Vikings is definitely worth a raid on your local games shoppe.
  7. A puzzle game that will exercise your brain.
  8. Blizzard deserves a round of hearty applause for adding a save system to the game, which makes it much more appropriate for portable gaming.

    Excellent remake! I could've never imagined that I could someday play this title on a handheld! :-)

    Very good game, if it the same or close to the same as the snes version.

    A good game for the advanced players, for the younger players I do not recommend this title.
