When Vikings Attack is the most hectic game of dodgeball ever played. The goal is simple; grab whatever isn't nailed down and hurl it at the invaders. With reinforcements constantly pouring out to bolster the Vikings' numbers, the action can quickly descend into delightful, reflex-testing chaos.
Supporting Cross-Buy, meaning you only need to buy the PlayStation 3 version to download the PS Vita version at no extra cost and vice versa, When Vikings Attack is easy to pick up and play. Use the right stick to control where your defenders run, or tap the throw button to launch objects at the Viking mob. There is also the all-important dash button, which provides a vital burst of speed to avoid any incoming objects and can even help you snatch thrown items out of the air.
Keeping a good number of defenders together is vital as larger teams can throw larger and more destructive objects. Recruiting panicking civilians is one way to build numbers, and Vikings can also be forced into retreat when using the right weapon, making it the best way to thin the opposition.
Each of the 15 stages adds its own twist to the gameplay, and carefully seeing how these changes can be used to your advantage is the key to victory. Although all-out aggression can often be the solution, clever use of the environment is sometimes more effective, especially during the challenging boss battles. Never fear if you need more opportunities to continue your battle - take advantage of Cross-Save, which lets you pick up your PS3 save game where you left off on your PS Vita and vice versa. So you can make sure those pesky Vikings are never safe from a little payback.
