The Lost Vikings

This is a really good Adventure/Puzzle game that was released for the MegaDrive and SNES, the sequel was released on the SNES.

The main characters are three Vikings, Erik the Swift, Baleog the Fierce, and Olaf the Stout.

Erik is the only one that can jump and break walls with his head by charging into them.
Baleog can attack with a sword and crossbow.
And Olaf has a shield.
During the levels, you collect items like keys and bombs, similar to Dizzy in a way except with 3 players. :p

Somebody on YouTube called Mashuren is playing this on 3 player mode with 2 mates of his if you wish to watch his Videos going through the levels, this gets updated daily and they're close to completing it too. here the playlist :)

The commentry contains comedy and some strong language.

I loved that game. Played it on my uncle's SNES. Thanks for posting a link to that vid. It's funny stuff.

Ah! I remember that game very well, but never actually owned it... May have to check that out on RomBay, and the sequel as well.

Thanks Adz :v2_dizzy_happy:

(I'm sort of BLIND to the slew of MegaDrive games we can now lay our hands on, as I always end up playing Earth Worm Jim when I boot up the emulator ;)

I find it dissapointing the sequel was only released for SNES and not the Megadrive because the Megadrive had this feature in the game where you can have 3 players and the SNES was 2 player only.
