Viking metal band Amon Amarth have teamed up with Ride & Crash Games AB to release their own mobile video game. The idea was born when Robert Chirico Willstedt, founder of the Swedish video game developer, had a round of beers with the members of the band. They discussed their favorite video games and expressed how awesome it would be to have an Amon Amarth video game.
Here’s a quick summary of the game:
You are Thor and your mission is simple: cleanse Midgard from all of the vile creatures that are threatening the (*ahem*) peaceful Viking way of life. There are three keys to ensure your success:
(1) your hammer, Mjolnir;
(2) your control of the freakin’ thunder and lightning!; and
(3) your fighting spirit is always high thanks to Amon Amarth’s epic music in retro style blasting from over the horizons and into your ears.
The unique game features four worlds, four epic battles, 12 unique levels and 13 different Amon Amarth tracks with retro video game sounds!
The game is now available on iOS and Android Phones and Tablets. However, the game is not free and will cost you $8.99. If you are a fan of the band, this is definitely something you want to check out. What’s better than slaying creatures while blasting some Amon Amarth?
