Friday Freeloader: Lost Vikings & Rock N Roll Racing
Blizzard, famed creators of super-duper popular MMO World of Warcraft weren’t always this big and famous. Back in the day, under the name “Silicon & Synapse” they released their first game to the SNES; The Lost Vikings. Now many years and billions of dollars of WoW subscriptions later you can grab their first game for free.
An old-fashioned puzzle platformer game you must get your three lost Vikings (you see where the name comes from?) to the end of the level, controlling each one at a time with separate abilities for each that aid in completing the level.
Rock n Roll racing is an isometric racing game (not really a view taken for racing games normally), with an emphasis on attacking other players vehicles to knock them back in the race, while listening to Rock n Roll music.
There’s a couple of ways to grab the games If you’re in the US you can pop over to your Battle.Net account and grab the games from the “Download Game Clients”. If you’re not from the US you can temporarily change your region to “Americas – English US” and follow previous instructions, or if you’re not into the whole Battle.Net account stuff you can get them straight from the link below (though I imagine it might not work forever). Presumably the downloads are the MS-DOS versions of the games and should run on most modern Windows operating systems.
