Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage Kraken Update is Out Now! And is now on Android

The Kraken is loose!  After a brief delay Nitrome has released a new Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage update for iOS and (finally!) Android.  Go grab the update today! The new v1.2.0 update is free and includes:

  • 40 brand new levels
  • Spectacular boss fight
  • New side quests
  • All new achievements
  • 8 Exclusive new Icebreaker avatars!
  • Cloud saving (iOS Universal build)

While the gameplay video shows some new anatomical game aspects, including “bowel physics™” and “cavity searches.”  Krakens, jellyfish, caviar and bouncing physics.. sounds like our Viking heroes are in for a challenge.

We’ll try to have walkthroughs up soon, but in the meantime, what do you think of the new update and features?  Are you grossed out or loving the change?  I bet those Android players amoungst us, are you excited to get your chance to play?  Post your feedback below.

Did Rovio make a press release regarding why Icebreaker is not published by Rovio Stars any more?

The video is well-worth studying. Gives some clues about how things work, especially the runes.

Looks like they have added a host of new playing strategies for this game. Glad the Nest will still carry the walkthroughs which will provide a reference when I get stuck.

@wrw01 @mvnla2 Unfortunately, it looks like we may no longer be able to cover Icebreakers after all. We are strapped for resources and there isn’t much demand. We will try, but no promises.

On another note, if anyone here knows someone who might be interested in producing video content for us please have them contact me. The need to have some decent availability during normal work hours and have a jailbroken iPad or other ability to record on iOS.

Thanks BL for the update, nice of ya. If I had to choose between Icebreakers and Mighty Eagle walk throughs got to go with ME. Hope you are still planning on posting those.

I have noticed that @mpg973 has produced some videos for posting of the strategies. Not sure about a jailbroken iPad, you may have to ask.

Right now i am stuck on ‘No Touching’ – no clue how to solve it. I also haven’t been able to complete ‘A Helping Hand’ although I think I know what to do, I just can’t do it. Let me know if you need any strategies on any of the levels preceding those and I will be happy to help.

@laurafj
I´m not good at explaining but I´m going to try my best.
On No Touching you should get the Glorious Glove on the wood piece spinning around and on the ice-block. Then the spinning wood piece will lift up the Glorious Glove (if you´re lucky) and at the same time lift up the ice-block to push up the viking into the boat.

@laurafj
A helping hand I actually find easier. You only need to swing the vikings into the boat using the Glorious Gloves.

@bad-piggies-2 — I’m with @laurafj on “Helping Hand”! Detailed tips much appreciated on how you “only need to swing the Vikings into the boat.” Please post in Icebreaker forum.
Getting a second hand to grab the Viking while he is swinging and before he hits a wall and dies is not easy.

@llaurafj and @bad-piggies-2 — Agree, you need to grab both the wood piece and the ice-block. Took me many tries.

You have to grab the ball under the chest with multiple hands so it holds the ball out straight and it hits the board and knocks off the chest then cut the rope when the chest is over the boat.

When you get to “To Catch a Troll” there is a side quest. Does anyone know how to open that. I have passed “To Catch a Troll” and have all 3 coins, but am above par. I also have not completed a couple of the previous side levels.

Profile photo of laurafjRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points

Do you have ‘Tipping Point’? It is the first stop on the side quest, there seem to be two more but I can’t open them.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

@laurafj — I can’t even see the first level on the side-quest. Did you do anything specific to open the quest, or did it just open when you got “To Catch a Troll”? I don’t have par yet on “To Catch a Troll” , and I only have 15 out of 26 possible pars on the previous levels. I will post my current status in the forum shortly. How far are you overall?

Profile photo of Bad piggiesRank: Master Slinger with 6570 points
By Bad piggies (@bad-piggies-2)

@mvnla2 Yes there is a side quest starting in “To catch a troll” and the mission in each level in the side quest is the same; catch the troll with the weird hat into a cage. To find the cage in “To catch a troll” you need to cut the rope at the right side of the viking boat and the cage will appear shortly.

I caught the troll in “To Catch a Troll”, but the side quest didn’t open. Guess I will try again. Thanks.

@Bad-Piggies — Duh!! I caught the troll, and was so happy to find the puzzle piece, that I guess I forgot to finish the level. : (( “Sitting in the corner with a dunce cap on head.”

in the side quest there are 3 levels at the first level which is tipping point you have to catch the troll with the stove at the second level you have to catch the troll with the cannon thingy and then 3rd level will open you have to catch a troll too

Managed to pass the Brain, which is the last real level.
Still haven’t passed high vaultage, and have several levels above par, some very much so.

Profile photo of Bad piggiesRank: Master Slinger with 6570 points
By Bad piggies (@bad-piggies-2)

@mvnla2 in HIgh Vaultage you need to drag the Glorious Glove to the viking in the canon and then fire the canon and let go at the right moment the get the viking to the other canon. Or you can take the treasure chest that´s under the second canon. Sorry for my bad description anyway.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

@Bad-Piggies-2 — Thanks for the reply! However, the part I’m having trouble with is getting the Viking from the second canon to the ship. You’re obviously going to tell me it’s trivial, but please embarrass me.

@mvnla2 I just waited for the viking to hit the bouncy thing and then let go og the Glorious Glove. But it was very hard finding the right timing.

By Iceman

I have found that shooting a high arc out of the second cannon then grab the Viking in the air and cutting the hand right before he hits the electricity will drop him on the bouncy thingy and bounce him right in the boat.

I am playing on iOS. Have you guys seen where the other three coins are for that level? Is it a hidden chest or something.

Thank

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

@Iceman — I don’t know where the other 3 coins are either. Would really like to know. I did manage to clear the level in 7 cuts, one above par. Did you get all 3 visible coins? How did you get the one on the right?

Rank: Master Slinger with 6950 points
By Chris (@chriss)

@mvnla2: For the third coin: high arc from second canon directly into the coin and the catch the viking before he falls into the water.

Profile photo of Bad piggiesRank: Master Slinger with 6570 points

There is a treasure chest under the second cannon that can be taken by shooting the viking from the the first cannon into the bouncy materials gap at the bottom.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points

@bad-piggies-2 — Do you mean shoot into the gap from the first cannon, or from the second?

From the first

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

@Bad-Piggies-2 — Interesting. So far, the chest pops out and slides into the water on the right. The Viking pops back into the second cannon. Any other tips?

Profile photo of Bad piggiesRank: Master Slinger with 6570 points
By Bad piggies (@bad-piggies-2)

@mvnla2 You need to grab the chest with the Glorious Glove and try to get it to the ship the same way you get the viking to the ship.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

Thank you @Bad-Piggies-2! But no thanks to Rovio. What is the chance that I can get both the chest and the Viking into the boat on the same run? The odds of getting either into the boat is at most 1/10.
@Chris — I think getting the 3rd coin (far right) also falls into this highly improbably category.

@mvnla2 Your welcome! But actually Rovio isn´t part of Icebreaker any more as Nitrome now has all the rights to it.
And I have got all the coins on that level.

By Iceman

Hi. Yes all coins, achievements and par (except strangely “the brain” which had par as 0). Sure I will hop on tonight to help you guys out if you need. I just need access to a keyboard.

@mvnla2 and @chriss. For some reason I can’t stay signed in on the Forum page so I can’t respond there. To get Par and the Treasure Chest on Stilts, all you have to do is begin the Hands line at the bottom and left margins. There aren’t any hand icons there but you can draw the lines anyway. From that distance, the viking line is long enough to clear the circuit and the chest line is short enough to drop into the boat. I haven’t been able to get the right ‘circuit’ coin yet.

Finally got the last coin in Stilts. Nothing magical, just lots of little movements down the circuit with lots of cuts.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 18650 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

@laurafj — Spoke too soon. Tips for dummies like me:
* For Viking, you need to start the hands line at the bottom margin of the screen almost directly underneath the Viking, but slightly to the left.
* For the treasure chest, you need to start the line at the left margin, about where the rocks meet the edge.

@Laurafj — What platform are you on? I’m on iPad. So far the longest line drops the Viking into the circuit.

@mvnla2 I am on an ipad. If you head due south from the viking and go below the water line to the edge of your screen, the viking will clear the circuit and land in the boat.
