Last month, Rovio, the Finnish entertainment company behind the Angry Birds franchise, announced that it would be publishing titles made by third-party developers under its Rovio Stars banner. Today, Rovio Stars' debut release has made its way to iOS in the form of Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. Developed by London-based Nitrome Ltd., Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is essentially an expanded, iOS-optimized edition of the award-winning Icebreaker Flash game. Like the wildly popular game that put Rovio on the map, Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is a physics-based puzzle game characterized by a delightfully offbeat brand of humor. In the game, you have to slice through ice in order to save stranded Vikings from trolls, traps, and other trials and tribulations. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.

Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage for iPhone and Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage HD for iPad are available now in the App Store for $0.99 and $2.99, respectively. Following this release, Rovio Stars is set to launch Tiny Thief, a medieval stealth-based puzzle adventure game created by Barcelona-based 5 Ants. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
