Ken McKown writes: Few games are capable of both frustrating, and engaging me in the same breath. Volgarr the Viking is one of those games. Developed by Crazy Viking Studios (appropriate), this side-scrolling action title brings back the edge-of-your-seat intensity that I remember from games like Ghosts and Goblins, where one hit could end an otherwise successful run. Of course, just making a game difficult is not enough; there also has to be intricate level design and fine-tuned mechanics. Something that Volgarr definitely nails.
