Vikings Abound In New Arcade Style Shooter Valhalla Bound
A great new archery based shooter about Viking funerals and their associated mythology by the name of Valhalla Bound has sailed onto Android. Created by indie developer Avizial, this arcade style shoot ’em up challenges players with launching flaming arrows onto outbound ships in order to send fallen warriors on their way while a variety of ancient pixel monstrosities try to stop them. It’s up to players to make sure the vikings’ souls make it to Valhalla without getting caught by one of Hel’s minions or else they’ll face the wrath of Odin himself.
As a procession of funeral ships sail into the horizon players must tap and hold to shoot fire arrows at them before they go off screen which will allow the souls they carry to ascend. Players must be careful not to accidentally shoot them in the process of lighting neighboring ships or the soul will be lost. The further players get in the game the larger a variety of monsters and bosses they’ll have to contend with which makes for an intense old school style arcade experience. If you’re a fan of arcade shooters you’ll have a blast with Valhalla Bound.
Valhalla Bound is free to download on Android and iOS. You can also pick it up on PC for a dollar at the link below as well as vote for it on Steam Greenlight here.
