Anyone can break stuff, but Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage requires you to break things with precision. See, your Viking comrades have been swept away in a storm and frozen in ice, so you've got the bust 'em out with a hammer. That's just how Vikings do.

Icebreaker is another physics puzzler, but it has a fresh approach to the genre. You have to slice icebergs, ropes, and other objects to collect your friends from around the level. That might require making just the right cut so they slide into your boat, but other times you'll have to shoot them out of a cannon or knock them off a ledge with an ice boulder. Yeah, there's some fun game mechanics in this one.

The graphics are cute, and level design is very clever in Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. For $0.99 you get 140+ levels with boss battles, quests, and so on. There are some optional in-app purchases, but they don't seem to be pushed too hard. It's on a 50% off sale to celebrate the launch, so act quick to save a buck.

    So the IAPs aren't for extra levels or anything? And are not required? Just looking for clarification figuring maybe you've played more or someone has.

    • RyanWhitwam

      I believe the IAPs are for special powers that help you beat a tough level more easily. Cheating, basically. This is based on my experience with the iPad version. It might have changed since then.

        Alright cool thanks, that is the info I was looking for. I just picked it up myself so I will give it a shot later on.

    I love the new "Offers in-app purchases", makes it so easy to figure out if I am getting it or not. Now google needs to allow play store filtering based on that.

    • Matthew Fry

      What they need is a list of the IAPs. This very general approach lumps demos with full game unlocks and paid upgrades of utilities in with the riffraff.

      • h4rr4r

        I prefer this approach. I don't want any IAP.

        • Matthew Fry

          I have a similar view of games that have high res character art covering up part of the screen in the promotional screenshots.

  • Jonathan_Harford

    Yeah... kind of important to know what the in-app purchases are for.

    Finally, been waiting on this for a while, it got pretty good reviews when it came out on iOS but I'm sure their version was published by Rovio. Going off the reviews the IAP is unnecessary, you can unlock all the levels by getting decent scores in the old fashioned way that much us of aging gamers are used to

    So, Vikings don't leave their own behind ? LOL/

  • Ghua

    you can finish the game without using any IAPs...

    Now I really have to buy a cheap QR charger for my work. Just can't stop playing. I loved the flash games back in the days and this one is really, really superior!
