Erik is a kind and peaceful Viking who happens to keep himself to himself and bothers nobody. Unfortunately, that evil god Loki isn't too pleased about Erik choosing a pacifistic lifestyle over one of pillaging so he casts a spell and turns the world rotten. Erik must now travel these infested lands and battle all kinds of sadistic evil before he can return to a time of peace and quiet. Oh, the problems these computer characters must face on a daily basis, not fair is it?

Atlantis Software released Erik back in 1992 and its a vertically scrolling platformer that features dozens of levels spread over four worlds. Of course, each level contains lots of baddies, many cool traps and scary end of level bosses. The graphics are so cute and cuddly with lots of details and super smooth scrolling. Overall, this is a really simple game with little to complicate it and, even though Erik isn't exactly original, it's entertaining and challenging - especially on the later levels. What a great platformer and one I guarantee you will love playing!
