Free today from the Amazon Appstore is a game called Happy Vikings. Aboard your dragonship, you’ll need to stack and arrange different loot type objects three in a row to make them vanish, earning combos and chains to crank up your points. There are even ancient ruins that drop, and by spelling out the God’s name, you’ll earn yourself special favors from them. There is even a marathon type mode called Valhalla to see how long you can last. Coming in at about 30MB there’s some great graphics, special effects and smooth game play. Two buttons on the left will move your character left and right and your pickup and jump buttons are on the other side. When first playing this I found myself constantly trying to throw the items onto the stacks Super Mario II style, but that’s not an option here and slowed the pace for me a bit. Your only able to place the loot underneath where you are standing, meaning you need to jump on top of the stacks to make a combo or place them horizontally. You can however double jump for height and push up to two objects at once so that helps with the gameplay. Add on a cool sound track, Feint and Facebook support, and optimization for Xperia PLAY and we’ve got a great little puzzle game on our hands here.
