Loved this game very much
This game is so awesome. I enjoyed every moment of it. The game was fast, unlike others, they're too slow at building, movement etc. Also, I had the choice to play timed or relaxed, which was another great way of playing. I'm sick of playing timed games, gets too frustrating and can't seem to get all the expert/gold. Make another one thanks

great time management
Enjoyed this one! I played through fairly quickly, but over the course of days, not hours. Some levels were very challenging, and I think I have one left to make three stars on so I can play the last of the bonus rounds. I like that the bonus rounds are tied to a few, but not all, levels, so you can play some even if you have a few levels with fewer than three stars. Buy this one, you'll enjoy it, too.

Tons of Fun!!!
I enjoyed the fact that when this game was over I could play it all over in HARD mode and enjoy the beautiful graphics and challenging fun all over again. This game requires some thought and planning. A great time management game!

Beautifully done, challenging and an entertaining story line. lots of little secrets to find.

Excellent TM/strategy game with a fun plot
This is the best time management/strategy game I've played so far. The gameplay is excellent and you can play multiple difficulty settings, including a casual option that allows you to just enjoy the story without a timer.
The story is inspired by Northern mythology and stands out as unusually good and original. You play a shipwrecked Viking on a quest to return your father's cursed ring to a midget who lives on top of a huge mountain. You have to travel across a very large map performing quests to help various villages and towns, and to overcome natural obstacles.
The game makes great use of the natural environment to affect your missions as you travel through verdant green areas, forests, rocky mountains, ice and snow storms, and underground caverns. On your journey you also meet a forest druid who is more complicated than he seems. The druid can unlock magical secrets at monolithic runestones and send your pet bear-cub to seek out hidden treasure chests.
There are a large number of original ideas used as mission objectives. Most involve building structures and gathering resources, but there are also magical quests and humorous bonus levels in which the vikings have to farm vegetables, feed hungry cave bears, and capture and pen wild mountain sheep. The interaction with the various village headman and other characters you meet throughout the journey are often very amusing, and the plot takes some interesting unexpected turns later in the game.
On the more technical side: The graphics are outstanding and the sound is good. (The music is well-done but a bit goofy by design, but you have the option to turn it off and listen to something else while still leaving the sound effects on.)
I loved this game and will keep my eyes out for a sequel.

Fun Game ANYONE Can Play
This is like many of the race around and build things in a set amount of time to get the best score games. However there is a big difference for me. I'm not very good at chaos and many of those type of games drive me nuts because I can't win the gold. This game can be played UNTIMED. It's fun because I'm not always trying to beat the clock. You still have to set priorities and I have had a few restarts. There is no violence. The main character is a very likeable, fun guy. The guys dance at the end of each adventure, much like the Royal Envoy characters. If you are hard core, you can play in other modes which considerably up the challenge. It truly is a game for all levels of player. I don't think you can go wrong on this one. Try it and you will probably buy it!

Give the ring to Loki!
The best thing about this game is that it has an "untimed" mode that lets you earn 3 gold stars no matter how long it takes you! I like to take my time and figure things out and not have to constantly repeat a level to meet a time constraint.
You are Ingolf, the younger son of Konung Amar who rules over the Viking nation. When the Konung wouldn't surrender his golden ring, the midget Loki cursed the ring and the Konung and essentially ruined the kingdom. So you are sent by your father to give the ring to Loki, and along the way you have a lot of time management adventures.
The game has the standard farms and sawmills plus some chests you have to open and some villagers you must speak to. It also has the standard "bonus" boots to make you run faster and tools to help you demolish buildings more quickly.
The one really annoying thing is the sound. The music is horrible and the workers constantly say "I will get it done". I recommend turning off the sound, except it does notify you when the boots or other bonuses have refilled.
I recommend it for the relaxed mode of play!

Untimed mode & some really nice buildings!
Well, it's a standard TM game and for them who wants to play it untimed it has that kind of mode as well as two timed ones. The visual and music is fine. A couple of buildings I haven't seen before in TM games adds to the fun factor:)
The story line was a bit boring. Even though I realise I probably thought so mainly because something inside of me goes gnurmph whenever I see horned helmets on Vikings, being a Swede myself.
So thumbs up for the untimed mode and fun buildings and thumbs down for the storyline.
