What Abandonware DOS thinks:

"I'm not a fan of platformers. I love RPGs, I enjoyed many point & click adventures, I like most strategy games, but I never got excited while playing a platform game. Lost Viking is different. I LOVED the concept of controlling three different vikings in order to solve riddles and reach the end of each level. A remake of Lost Vikings would be a best seller. Well, retro gamers would buy it, right?"

Much of the game's appeal came from the humorous inter-level dialogues of the characters. ("If I [head]bash one more wall right now, my head will explode!" "I got dibs on his helmet." "Okay, but I get his boots." "It's great to have such good friends.").

Art Director Samwise Didier has stated that the character design for "Erik the Swift" was based on childhood friend Michael Cripps.
