Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Vikings Row! is a light-hearted "race-to-the-finish" game in which players guide a Viking ship and its crew through treacherous waters on the way to Valhalla. The goal is to make it to the end of the level before time runs out, while collecting the minimum number of coins. And although Vikings had fearsome reputations throughout history, there's no violence or pillaging here.
Is it any good?
VIKINGS ROW! isn't the most fast-paced game but there's plenty of precision and timing involved. Its most fun (and challenging) aspect is its control scheme, which involves propelling the boat forward by dragging a finger along each side of it to imitate the way oars work. Players can also steer and reverse using variations of this basic concept. The treacherous spikes and whirlpools, rapids, and secret paths make for plenty of content and replayability, too.
