Kick it!

I'll be playing through both the SNES and Genesis versions. Looked into getting the Amiga CD32 port, but then I saw the price and ran away screaming.

One of my favorite games.

What about the gba version? :lol: I'm definitely looking into getting this as my first game of the month especially if the genesis one isn't too bad in price and that pawn still has the genesis there...

Lost Vikings is such a great game, and it remains one of my favorite puzzle platformers. For those of you trying it for the first time, I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

Played a little during my daughter's nap.

In the first ancient Egypt level - QCKS.

Not a glitch per se, but something interesting nonetheless:
It's possible to skip a key in the tree level (TRSS) and still complete the stage. I don't think this is possible anywhere else in the game.

Never played it on GBA, but that port looks decent, like many other SNES --> GBA conversions. In the SNES game you use L/R to switch vikings. I assume similar controls are used on the GBA.

I used to play this on PC back in its day. I have the Genesis version now though. It was my favorite platforming game on PC. I never even realized there were console versions until years later.

Awesome! We just did a video on Lost Vikings a bit ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJ_vdZhv4IM.

Had a lot of fun with it the short time I got to play it recently. Portal 2 has good puzzles requiring 2 characters but this game did it with 3 much earlier.

I got it for the GBA last week. The price is about half as much as the SNES version is going for now ($10-$20).

I'll be starting it this weekend.

downloaded the DOS version. I guess it doesn't have built in controller support though. So I'll have to build my own profile for it at some point I guess.
