Lost Vikings is a different kind of platformer. It adds an element of puzzle to it by having each character have special abilities and making you figure out how to get them all out by using their abilities together. The graphics are very colorful and are pretty well drawn.
In the game, the three Vikings get kidnapped by Tomator, an extraterrestrial emperor of the Croutonian empire, for an inter-galactic zoo and become lost in various periods of time. The purpose of the game is to control the three characters (who all have separate abilities) in order to solve puzzles to escape and get back home.All three Vikings have 3 health points which they can lose by getting hurt by enemies or by falling from great heights, and the ability to carry and use items, mainly keys, bombs, and food. None of them can swim.
