Valkyrie: The New Must-Have Arcade Running Adventure on iOS Has Arrived!

GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA - Bifrost Studios, a burgeoning mobile application and game developer, is excited today to announce the launch of Valkyrie onto the App Store. Universally compatible across all iOS devices, this unique running game puts players into the shoes of Valkyrie - a futuristic nomad - and challenges them to use their wits and hand-eye coordination to navigate ten hauntingly beautiful yet treacherous maps while collecting as many souls as they can en route to victory. A brilliantly animated first person arcade "runner", Valkyrie also features a frenzied survival mode where gamers can test themselves to see how long they can last, hurdling gaps and activating obstacles and platforms at all the right times without missing a beat and paying the ultimate price! Complete with a surreal original soundtrack, Valkyrie is currently available for download on the App Store for $1.99 in the Games category.

This is the running arcade experience re-imagined. Valkyrie eschews monotonous "run, jump & duck" gameplay to bring gamers a more sophisticated - not to mention stylistically evolved - way to immerse themselves in this adrenaline packed arcade sub-genre. In addition to simply jumping, players are tasked with activating or deactivating various platforms and barriers as they run to ensure nothing blocks their path. Every level in the game introduces players to new challenges while pitting them against courses which require them to make split-second decisions in sequence and always think a few steps ahead. Gamers better be ready to problem solve and think logically at the drop of a pin though, because Valkyrie won't be waiting on them!

As stunningly designed as it is playable, this game highlights a world that at once seems futuristic and ancient. Simple gesture controls ensure that players focus on what's important - playing to their hearts' content - rather than fidgeting with controls or worrying that their run will end because the game didn't pick up their actions either. Simply put, it leaves the App Store's more mundane arcade runner titles in the dust. Those that love to compete can hone their skills in the game's Endless Run mode, racking up high scores and rushing their way to the top of Valkyrie's online leaderboards as well. Get ready to sprint, because one of the most popular mobile game genres just got a bit sweeter.
