The Game:
One day many years ago, trouble came to the land of Vikings. Savages invaded the realm and destroyed the tree of plenty, leaving the people starving in their ruined villages. Two brothers picked up their horned hats and decided to do something about the situation. Now they’re on a quest to win back the favour of the gods and restore prosperity to their once happy kingdom.
Viking Brothers 2 is a resource management/strategy game that puts you in the old Norse inspired driver’s seat. Send workers out along the twisty roads to collect resources, remove obstacles, and repair buildings, all in the name of completing a set of goals and earning three stars at the end of the stage. Along the way you’ll pick up bonuses from gold-generating treasure chests, drive away wolves, help NPCs in need, and even fish for food like a true Viking.
The core of the Viking Brothers 2 gameplay revolves around amassing piles of wood, stone, gold, and food, all of which are required to do pretty much everything in the game. Some levels have regenerating piles of loot that deliver pieces every few seconds. Others require you repair and upgrade buildings to get all the resources you need. No matter the layout, Viking Brothers keeps the set-up straightforward and familiar. You won’t have to deal with mini-games or roundabout quests to progress from level to level. Just focus on queueing up tasks for your workers and the rest will fall into place.

Also, did you know Vikings used magic? These do, anyway! At the bottom of the screen a small meter slowly fills up as time passes. When the meter reaches an icon, that ability can be activated. These spells do simple but incredibly useful things like speed up your workers or offer a temporary resource bonus. Nothing that feels like cheating or that will change the course of play, but great extras when the going gets especially tough.
The Viking Brothers 2 experience is core resource management genre at its best. The focus never strays from the concept of working efficiently, even when new Vikings and surprise missions join the fray. The stages play out without any hitches, the difficulty rises on a gradual curve, and the variety of locations keeps things fresh long into the game. Viking Brothers 2 is a charmer from beginning to end, featuring a quirky story and tongue-in-cheek characters who never take things too seriously. Just the sort of resource management game to help you wind down after a long day.

Conclusion:
If you enjoy playing games like Rescue Team franchise, Rescue Frenzy, Weather Lord franchise or New Yankee in Santa`s Service games you'll probably like this one as well. It's got the same strategic game play and resource management; the only difference is the Viking theme and some gorgeous environments to explore. I don't particularly like Time Management game because I play games to relax. TM games just aren't relaxing IMO; however, this type of TM game isn't as time oriented as say Gourmania, Ice Cream Mania or Beach Party Craze (other games we’ve been given in the past) so I find them okay in small doses (much like the Farm Frenzy games).

The game play is straightforward with quirky characters. These together with the cartoon like graphics would appeal to children and families in general. I’ve scored this virtually the same as the first one apart from a slight increase in the game play score.

• Game play: 7.5
• Graphics: 7.5
• Audio: 7
• Re-playability: 6
• Originality: 6
• Fun Factor: 7

Total = 41 out of 60 which = approx. 6.8 out of 10.

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game and it found four hits from antimalware engines Kingsoft, Panda, VBA32 & Zillya. this is probably a false positive due to the remnants of low level adware that was included with the non gamegiveaway version from MyPlayCity (MPC). This version has been stripped of the main adware, but as mentioned above, non invasive remnant may be present still, but this only opens your browser to MPC's home page once when you install the game and when you close the game down after booting it up. Also, a couple of shortcuts may be added to your desktop ( these can be safely deleted once the game has been installed). The installation does not inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to MPC's home page following the games installation it earns MPC games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. You can see the results of the scan via the following link:

Whiterabbit-uk,

Other Free Games:
The latest free games from Epic went live on Thurs 15th July and will be available to add to your EPIC games library until the 22nd July at 4pm UK time/11am EST when a new set of games will be available to add to your account. The latest games are Offworld Trading Company - Mars has been colonized, and Earth's corporate titans fight to dominate this new market. Competition is fierce in this fast-paced economic RTS from Civilization IV Lead Designer, Soren Johnson and Obduction - a sci-fi adventure from Cyan, the creators of Myst. Abducted far across the universe, you find yourself on a broken alien landscape with odd pieces of Earth. Explore, uncover, solve, and find a way to make it home.

From the 22nd July at 4pm UK time/11am EST the free games change over to Defense Grid: The Awakening , one of my all time favourite tower defense games. The game appeals to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it's up to the player to stop them by strategically building defensive towers around their base. This was the very first game I ever purchased on Steam back in January 2009; together with a bowling game called Galactic Bowling and is well worth adding to your Epic library if you don't already have the game. Also available on the 22nd July is Verdun - a game with merciless trench warfare that immerses you and your squad (playing multiplayer) in intense battles of attack and defense. Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in an authentic World War One setting, offering a rarely seen battlefield experience. It also includes a single player element. Brilliant game that you must experience (if you enjoy FPS games).


Please see Delenn's threads for Steam and Non Steam freebies HERE and HERE respectively. Delenn has been updating these regularly for years now. It’s worth adding these links to your favourites and checking regularly for available freebies. Most are only free for a specific time. If you miss the deadline you’ll miss out. Once added to your account, it’s yours to keep. Delenn has recently posted details of more Steam games that are temporarily free. One may be until it leaves early access??? - i.e. Tower Ball - Incremental Tower Défense plus a reflex game called Keyboard Killers are still free. Delenn posted details of a free origin came called Battlefield 4 which is available for free if you have an Amazon Prime account (If you like FPS games, it's a brilliant game to own. (not sure if it's still live).

You'll find hundreds of freeware games of all arcade and indie genres on Itch.io and Caimans Games as well as other sources. Please do check out the game discussion forums for older posts HERE (the sticky section is useful). Many of the earlier posts may be out of date with respect to the links I and others have provided to the free games; however, you only need to know the name of the game to find most of them via other sources.

The Indie Gala developers freebies are available HERE (latest additions) and HERE (81 games in the Showcase, most full versions). Recent additions include 8Bit Boy, Lawless Lands Unrest, Block Dungeon, In Between Land Sonya: The Great Adventure, The Last Dream: Developer's Edition; plus, many more in the showcase section HERE and the Freebies section HERE.

It’s worth adding most of the links to your favourites and checking regularly for available freebies. Most are only free for a specific time. If you miss the deadline you’ll miss out. Several recent additions that were still available last week have since been removed e.g. Kick Ass Commandos, Whispering Willows, Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders, Inbetween Land and Deep Despair. Once added to your account, they are yours to keep and available to download DRM free anytime from your Indie Gala download page. :)

Whiterabbit-uk, this is very similar to https://game.giveawayoftheday.com/moai-build-your-dream-2/ the story here is shorter but makes more sense and the gameplay is easier at begin...however as you go to more advanced levels there may be traps even so it seems easy enough...like you can mess up the resources which are limited and you get stuck with no way to advance except quit and resume level from begin

all that said is a pity is so huge so Moai may still be a better choice for the storage space savy, the story has bad holes but at least is more developed too

one annoying funny thing is you suppose to play as viking 2 brothers but always start with only one as worker and later upgrade when allowed

oh, and moai had meowing sounds, this one has goats :))) i'll see if 5 brings anything new to the table since is given away right now, but is still huge :( do you have any magic tricks in your hat to make them smaller? :))))

These truly are my favorite type of game. I like this game, but maybe not quite as much as VB2. Mostly because the game layout graphics are a little more cluttered looking. Installed easy, again pause your anitvirus for quick install time. i like the casual game play to get used to the game first, then change up to the timed levels. Again only 50 levels, but hey I'll take it. Thank you devs and Giveawayoftheday.

Worked ok on win 10 although I couldn't play it in full screen mode for some reason on my computer, but it worked fine smooth game play and ran really well. I enjoy time management games and this one I am defiantly keeping. It has a relaxed mode and a timed mode and it keeps the results separately.

Love the viking games and this one is no exception. Great game, just wish it was longer than only 50 levels. Finished in 2 hours on easy. Installed easy with no issues. Just turn off your avast or whatever virus protection you have for the 10 minutes it takes to install. Great game!! Thank you!

Malwarebytes blocked installation due to "PUP", probably the anti-piracy wrapper. I exited MWB and problem solved.
It's a good solid TM game.
Thanks GGOTD, MPC, and as always, the indefatigable Whiterabbit. :)
