Mainly titled Prophecy I - The Viking Child is a game created by Imagitec Design Limited on Amiga, Atari ST, Atari Lynx, Game Boy and DOS in 1991. 18 months later, the game was planned to be released on the Sega Game Gear by Autumn and the Sega Master System by Winter as well as a planned released for the Commodore 64. Also there was a planned sequel titled "Viking Child 2". However all planned releases were cancelled in their early stages along with the sequel.
Programming of the Lead version (Atari ST version) was done by Mark Fisher (a.k.a. Fish, Mr Fish) Original graphics were created by Anthony Rosbottom (a.k.a. Bliz, Blizzard) Music was written by Barry Leitch & Ian Howe.
The game closely resembled Sega's Wonder Boy in Monster Land, as certain elements like collecting hidden gold, upgrading the character's weapons and visiting shops were practically identical, despite the difference in release times.
There is no save game feature but passwords can be earned and used to allow access to later levels.
