Rovio Publishes Indie Game ‘Icebreaker’

Rovio has just released the first game in their Rovio Stars initiative. You might be wondering, “What the heck is Rovio Stars?” It’s their new indie publishing effort, basically their own version of Chillingo. The first game is a a physics puzzle game called Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, and it looks pretty cool.

Icebreaker tells the tale of a band of Vikings stranded in an icy wasteland full of snotty trolls. You job is to swipe the screen to break the ice and cut ropes in order to save the Vikings. The game has 95 levels and is based on a Flash game that you can play here. Or you can go straight to the App Store and download the iPhone version or the iPad version.

The next Rovio Stars game will be called Tiny Thief, but we don’t have many details on that one yet.
