    And as much fun as the game itself is, I simply must heap more praise on the overall humor and tone. Vikings is a genuinely clever game that will leave a smile on your face.

    The Horrible Vikings is a casual game gone adventure, and it really works.

    If you're a fan of catapult games, there isn't much to not like about The Horrible Vikings. Yes, the core gameplay element has been done to death on the App Store, but few of them can even begin to rival the amount of refinement seen in The Horrible Vikings.

    When it comes to kooky catapult games, The Horrible Vikings is top notch.

    Bringing a fair amount of character to the catapult set-up, The Horrible Vikings comes with too much baggage to really take on the genre's masters.
