The game follows three Vikings, Eric the Swift, Olaf the Stout and Baleog the Fierce, who have been plucked out of their own timezone by the evil Tomator, who is collecting lifeforms from all over the universe. It is up to the player to guide all three Vikings through various periods in time to get back to their ship. Each Viking has their own set of skills which are needed to progress through the stage. The player can only control one Viking at once, but can switch between them at any point and share items.
As the Sega Mega Drive version came slightly later than the others (1993 as opposed to 1992), it contains five stages not present in any other version. The music is also slightly different. The game is compatible with the 6-button gamepad and the Multi-tap, allowing for up to three players to play simultaneously.
