Blizzard Offers Game Classics For Free Download At Battlenet
Joining Blackthorne, a 1994 Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) title that Blizzard made available for free on Battle.net last November, are The Lost Vikings and Rock N' Roll Racing.
Starting with the former, The Lost Vikings was originally released in 1992, also for the SNES and a bunch of other platforms, including the PC via DOS (remember DOS?). At the time, Blizzard was known as Silicon & Synapse. It's a side scrolling platform title that's heavy with puzzles as you switch between three different vikings with their own unique special abilities. You're trying to escape the clutches of Tomator, leader of the Croutonian alien empire, who kidnapped the vikings to be put on display in a zoo.
Rock N' Roll Racing debuted a year later for the SNES and is remembered for its soundtrack featuring "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood, "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath, "Highway Star" by Deep Purple, and a few other tracks. Beyond the music, it's a racing title that encourages participants to take out their opponents.
All three titles are available now at Battle.net.
