3,8 em 5

Numa frase, definiria Volgarr, the Viking, de quase todas as perspectivas, como uma homenagem ao passado dos side-scrollers: graficamente é inspirado na era dos 16-bits, a dificuldade é elevada até ao ponto da frustração, o sistema de save é semelhante ao de passwords (também da era dos 16-bits) e a jogabilidade é um somatório de mecânicas de títulos de passado.

Tal como em alguns velhinhos títulos de arcada somos atirados para o jogo sem indicações prévias. De seguida, num cenário de um grafismo irrepreensível, aquele que assumo que seja Odin invoca-nos com um audível e gutural “Rise warrior!”. Podendo não ser uma referência deliberada, há uma semelhança óbvia com o início de Altered Beast, em que Zeus invoca um centurião com o grito ”Rise from your grave!”. Mas! Se restassem dúvidas sobre eventuais referências, não há como esconder a flagrante homenagem prestada a Rastan. O tipo de fisionomia do herói é a mesma, as animações de movimento são as mesmas, os inimigos presentes no primeiro nível do jogo são os mesmos e, para tirar as possíveis dúvidas, o design da fase inicial é idêntico. Level design esse que, não sendo uma cópia, tem um pensamento estruturante muito similar ao de Ghosts ‘n Goblins, que assenta sobre duas ideias: de que cada acção a que nos comprometemos é definitiva (por exemplo, não poderemos alterar a trajectória de um salto enquanto estamos no ar) e de que cada passo adiante tratá mais um desafio/puzzle/situação que terá de ser estudado e superado com uma aprendizagem. Se continuássemos a investigar encontraríamos, certamente, mais referências a jogos do passado, mas não queremos maçar-vos com mais História.
O importante a retirar daqui é que Volgarr, the Viking não é um jogo para todas as pessoas. É um jogo para revivalista, extremamente difícil, que testará a nossa paciência a cada segundo, que se mostrará cruel e implacável a cada desatenção ou momento de desconcentração e que, para mal dos corações mais sensíveis, só nos permite salvar o jogo no início de cada nível (eu levei 3 horas para completar o primeiro…).

É frustrante, muito frustrante, mas a gratificação vem em doses semelhantes mas com muito menor frequência. Para quem espera tirar daqui sessões de jogo casuais, a nossa recomendação é para que procurem outro título.
Tendo em conta o público a que se destina, é impossível não dar a Volgarr a nota gorda que merece.

If you miss hard side scrollers that only kill you when it's YOUR fault. Go for this game.
Volgarrr brings back a kind of game we old schoolers missed. And it's good, hard, fun and feel rewarding to learn the patterns.

Similar Games:

Ghosts & Goblins, Golden Axe, and to a lesser degree Castlevania games

The Good:

Brutally unforgiving difficulty!
A nostalgic romp through a very 80s arcade action game
While the game is very, very, very, very difficult, it also is quite fair. Most deaths are caused by the player being to eager to progress without any planning or forethought
Controls are basic and concise
The graphics and gameplay are a fun throwback to those games you grew up playing! (note: if you are 30+ years old)
An intense satisfaction can be had when beating a level, which does not come easily (Have I mentioned the game is hard?)
Checkpoints help make progression easier, as they are setup at the starting and midpoint of every level. When you perish you return to the last checkpoint (though these can be quite a ways back)

The Bad:

Brutally unforgiving difficulty!
I had originally posted here about a lack of save feature, but was made aware by the developer (almost immediately) that you can return to the start of an unlocked level by walking to the left from the start

Can you play it while the children are awake?:

I did, but mostly because the gory violence is heavily pixelated.

Did I make time to complete it?:

I have yet to beat it, but have spent a good 9 hours trying to. I plan on completing the game.

Recommended Purchase Price:

$11.99

This game is so good that I wrote a poem about it in the style of Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf, in a bid to entice one of my friends to give it a chance.

Men of courage! Listen to my challenge!
My name is known in the northern lands and beyond,
And my deeds are famed far and wide.
Volgarr I am, the most valiant of shield-bearers,
The adventurer and slayer of ancient gods.
Let this hall's strong pillars and hearty ale protect us
From the rain's cold water, and the howling wind,
As I stand proud and alone to tell my story.

Sea monsters I have slain, and giant serpents;
Winged beasts; howling barrow-men; bloodthirsty lizards.
My mighty muscles and quick mind protected me,
As they shall serve any of you who now support my cause.
Have courage, and use all your cunning,
and overcome the fear which first strikes all of us.
Those who doubt my deeds will feel my dagger -
Yet, those following my guide will know great glory.

It's also one of very few games to score higher than 10 on my personal rating scale, which is based on how many days it distracted me from Street Fighter 4. It's a good game!

Volgarr is a pretty cool action platformer with a slower, more methodical pace than most. You can't change direction mid jump (except by double jumping), your melee attack is very short range, and your projectile locks you in place for a second unless you do it in mid-air, so you really have to commit to your attacks in this game.

It's pretty much a thinking man's action game. It rewards precise timing and execution, but it's very difficult to get out of bad situations unscathed once you get put in them. The emphasis here is more on carefully figuring out how to safely go about things and avoid getting trapped, and the game is excellently designed in this regard: there's tons of different ways to get past obstacles, the level design is really clever with a lot of attention to detail, and the game generally feels pretty fair even when it's hard (though some of the bosses do jump off the deep end into pure trial and error).

So if you want a thinking man's hack and slash platformer that doesn't leave you feeling "oh, I should have reacted to that faster" when you die, but rather "oh, I should have thought that through better", than consider Volgarr since it does a fantastic job of accomplishing that.
