Vikings II is PinPin Team’s follow up to Vikings: An Archer’s Journey, which initially released back in 2016. This time they’ve teamed up with publisher Plug in Digital to release the game for both iOS and Android, where it’s available now as a free-to-play game.
Vikings II is a slight step in a different direction from its predecessor. It’s maintained the beautiful storybook art style but it’s no longer a side-scrolling action game where you’ll be pinging arrows at foes and jumping over obstacles. Instead, it’s vertically scrolling and more akin to a bullet hell shooter than the first game.
As you can see in the trailer below, you’ll be battling against hordes of enemies whilst fire an impossibly fast volley of arrows. Enemies will be capable of doing the same so you’ll need to be adept at dodging whilst killing as many foes as possible to collect different power-ups such as shields, multi-shots or fire damage.
Alongside various weaker enemies, you’ll also battles against more powerful foes in boss-type battles. Here you’ll face Krakens, Trolls, Vikings Raiders, Dragons and even Odin himself.
There will be multiple Vikings to unlock as you play through the game who will all presumably have different abilities to make use of.
