    Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage's review

    Published: 2014-05-15, by Janel.

    Slice the ice to solve the vikings' physics puzzles

    • Wholly original and clever physics puzzler
    • 140 levels, each rich with well thought out design
    • Hilariously gruff Vikings
    • Excellent graphics and sound design
    • No trial version

    "How much does a polar bear weigh?"

    Not even Thor's mighty hammer could smash through the glaciers of Nitrome's Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, so you're going to have to slice it into more manageable ice cubes yourself in this wholly original physics puzzler.

    This band of vikings has managed to get themselves lodged in the most unfortunate of configurations amid the ice floes. The goal is simply to drop them safely onto the awaiting ship below, but the only tool at your disposal is your godlike slicer, which you can wield to cleave the glaciers in twain as you please. Consider carefully how a cut will cause them to fall, including consequences of both weight and trajectory. Oh yes, you'll also have to confront wayward ropes, loaded cannons, errant slime, and, obviously, troll boogers.

    Each puzzle is super clever, presenting you with new ways to consider using your tool every time. The graphics are absolutely top-of-the-line pixel art, and the perky viking music is exactly right to counter it. Gruffly absurdist humor throughout makes puzzling merry.

    Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage isn't like any other physics puzzler I've ever seen, and it's incredibly well executed. The 140 levels of slicing ice are well worth the entrance fee.
