All of the games in this series have been awarded in the annual SEUCK contests. To be on the top in these competitions it is not enough to make a decent shooter. The game has to be not only graphically appealing, give the player a proper challenge but also should puch the boundaries of the quite old SEUCK editor.
With each iteration of the Valkyrie series Eleanor Burns was able to add some more enhancements and uncommon solutions into the schematic shoot’em up genre. In addition to that the games are telling an interesting story of princess Mariska and her struggle with the nazi soldiers. Before starting the game I would recommend reading the short stories introducing the events before each game. If you will be able to overcome all of the opponents and kill dangerous bosses, be informed that the fun may not be over yet. Each of the games has an additional file with a special game ending, but to see it you need to earn a special code. Will you be be determined enough to achieve this?
