Enter the Halls of Valhalla and do battle against an evil god Loki and his minions. Prophecy I: The Viking Child is an action platformer released on Commodore Amiga, Atari ST/STE, Atari Lynx, Nintendo Gameboy and PC (DOS).
The Viking ChildThe game is similar to the Super Wonder Boy (in Monster Land), like collecting hidden gold, upgrading the character's weapons and visiting shops (to spend your collected coins when destroying an enemy) were practically identical, despite the difference in release times. You control Brian, a Viking child, fighting your way through 16 levels in Odin world, with diverse scenarios, including medieval castles, mountains, thick forests, an evil god Loki and his minions. Ok, memories of Super WonderBoy flashed back into my head here but, Viking Child is much better and includes better graphics and brilliant sound! A great action platform game, similar to the well known Wondweboy, with lots of fun to play. A must for platform game greaks!
Prophecy I: The Viking Child it's by no means a masterpiece, but a good action adventure multi-platform game that surely gives the player great fun and lots of puzzles to cope with. A must for platform game freaks!

Graphics are cute and varied on the ST version with colorful designs and smooth animation. Sprite animation features cartoonish style character reactions (when jumping from a high height etc), perfect for a game of this type. Each stage is unique, including medieval castles, mountains, thick forests and more. The negative side of the visuals here is that, screen scrolling suffers quite a bit, making gameplay rather difficult especially when jumping onto platforms. Note that the graphics on the Amiga version look and feel much better using more colors, a few more detail here and there, and in particular, screen scrolls way smoother!
Sound is also good featuring a nice introductory theme and a catchy gameplay music, although sound effects are not supported here (found only on the Amiga version when selected).
