The makers of the excellent 2014 game Leo’s Fortune are back with a new action platformer, and this time they’re shifting their their focus from the cartoony world of Leo, which looked like it came straight out of a Pixar movie, to something based on Viking and Norse mythology.

While the game won’t arrive until later this spring, the developers just dropped a trailer for Oddmar — and it looks kind of awesome, with all the graphical gorgeousness we’d expect. Check it out below.

There’s not too much that’s known about the game yet, other than its overall theme and the fact that it will feature 24 platforming levels. From the trailer, we can see that it boasts a pretty wide range of settings, from white-tipped mountains to underground mines.

I particularly love the look of the game, which has plenty of polish, with an incredible amount of detail and some brilliant hand drawn elements. It also appears like it’ll be a premium title, which hopefully means we won’t have in-app purchases to dilute the overall gaming experience.

Given that Leo’s Fortune was the recipient of a 2014 Apple Design Award, I’ve definitely got high hopes for Oddmar. Can it top Alto’s Odyssey as the best iOS game of 2018 so far? That’s definitely a high benchmark to try and achieve, but it’s definitely a comparison I’ll have in mind.
