[iOS] Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage - First Impression

Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is a puzzle game for iOS made by Rovio Stars (Nope, they're different from the creators of Angry Bird). There are people talking that this was just a copy of Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja and Angry Bird but for me it was "inspired" from all of those games! It's more fun to play. right? Having some top mechanics of the famous games together. That's being clever in my book.

Your goal is to get the frozen vikings into your ship where this hammer guy smashes the frozen fellows free. Slashing huge boulder of ice into pieces and cutting ropes is where you come in. But be careful on slashing the ice because if one of them falls into the water you'll have to restart the level. You can perfect the level by completing plus getting the golden chest!

The graphics and sounds of the game is suiting the theme of Vikings very well. Although the game just got released last June it has potential to compete with other famous puzzle games around the Appstore.

a bit pricey eh?
They also provided a shop where you can get power-ups worth $10 below. Standard pricing just like from the other apps.

So far there are 3 different chapters and it was indicated in the game that there's more to come soon!

You can get Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage in the Appstore for $0.99. It's only a 32mb download.

There's no word from the company on when they'll release the Android version.
