Initially, Lost Vikings 2 was released for the Super Nintendo in 1995. Sprite characters models were taken directly from the first part and only slightly improved. The idea of the game has not changed – we still need to combine the unique abilities of the characters to pass each level.

Cool, I didn't even know that there was a version of this game with decent graphics. I only played the PC version once and while I liked the improved gameplay I gave up on it because of those horrible pixelated plastic imitations. Thanks for drawing my attention to this. :)

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

I believe that you played the first part of it, and this one was made for both NES and PC, and something tells me that their graphics are identical :)

Apart from this being the SNES, not NES, the IBM version indeed has completely different graphics. The SNES look is much closer to the first part while the other one has this typical plastic early '3D rendering' look.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Well, just a typo i guess. I couldn't have mistaken crispy and jerky NES graphics for SNES alright.

And ok, sure. SNES version seems to be a little smoother in terms of graphics. But i probably wouldn't ever care... :)
