Award - Sega TAS of 2015
In this action/puzzle game, you control three Vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels.

This movie controls three characters simultaneously. Archanfel manages to improve the previous TAS by 8 minutes and 17 seconds through much better optimization. See the author's comments for what was improved.

Keep in mind that only Vikings that are onscreen can be controlled.

Total movies: 3

In this action/puzzle game you control three vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels. If two vikings are on screen at the same time, both can be controlled. (Actually, the game supports three simultaneous players, but the GMV movie format doesn't yet.)

An improved version by the same author is in progress.

In this action/puzzle game you control three Vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels.

This movie controls three characters simultaneously, and is the first movie to do so in TASVideos history. This, together with some other new tricks, is what lead to the massive (almost 5 minutes) cutdown in time. Keep in mind that only Vikings that are on screen can be controlled.
