We’ve all been there. You die in glorious battle but instead of ending up in Asgard we end up on the frigid planes of Niffelheim. That’s the basic story behind Niffelheim, a viking survive-’em-up that’s available to buy from the App Store right now.
Once you wake up in Niffelheim you need to start building, crafting and fighting your way out. There are monsters, there are trees to cut down and there are castles to build. All in a lovely looking side-scrolling world.
It’s fair to say that the game isn’t going to be a walk in the park. Almost everything in Niffelheim wants you dead, and you need what they guard to get out. Expect lots of differences of opinion. With axes.
The game has been out on various other platforms for a while and it’s been warmly received. And now you can grab it for your iPhone or iPad. So if you’ve ever fancied living out a portable viking afterlife fantasy, there’s never been a better time.
