icebreaker.gifJohnBNewly thawed from Nitrome, Ice Breaker is a great-looking physics-based puzzle game involving vikings, chunks of ice, and vikings frozen inside chunks of ice. Using the mouse, simply draw lines to cut the ice and drop vikings onto the ship. You'll often need to manipulate the frozen environment to create a smooth path for the vikingcicles to slide down, so timing and a little experimentation with physics are your two best friends in this game.

Best of Casual Gameplay 2009To slice a chunk of ice, all you have to do is click and drag the mouse. You can only cut using a clean stroke, so the line must begin and end outside of the ice. Use the [arrow] or [WASD] keys to scroll the map, or just slide the cursor to the edge of the screen to take a look around.

Ice Breaker doesn't confine the action to cutting and dropping. More physics puzzles are introduced quite quickly, including fixed points where ice can swing from and ropes that can bind pieces of ice together. You'll also find a few other obstacles and bonuses as you slice your way through the game's healthy 40 levels. And even when you're not trying to complete puzzles, it's a lot of fun to cut up the environment to see what kind of havoc you can wreck.

New expanded versions now available!

Analysis: The gameplay in Ice Breaker is reminiscent of the under-appreciated Nintendo DS game Soul Bubbles. In both titles you manipulate objects by slicing chunks off of larger pieces to make them more manageable. In Ice Breaker, for example, you'll often need to cut slivers of ice so a frozen viking can slide down a pathway. Sometimes chiseling a pillar into a properly fitted bridge will be necessary to move a viking to safety, bringing into play your ability to mentally visualize and rotate oddly-shaped objects in your mind.

I've always enjoyed Nitromes pixel-perfect art style, but Ice Breaker's visual presentation really impressed me. Maybe I just like the Norse-like influence, the subtle hints of a grand mythology looming just behind the fuzzy bearded viking guys. The moment I saw the ship floating in the cold waters I was in awe.

A few minor gameplay quirks, such as the mini-map covering areas you need to cut and the slightly "sticky" scrolling function, are slightly annoying but far from ruin the game. A clickable mini-map would also be a nice feature, allowing you to quickly view different areas without moving through the whole stage.

Great-looking, well-balanced and a lot of fun to just play around with, Ice Breaker is an excellent physics-based puzzle game that you'll thoroughly enjoy.

A very verynice game. Nitrome are such a fantastic bunch of developers but I was starting to get a bit 'quality-blind' and this is a nice refresher to remind me how good they are.

Bit stuck on the hammer in level 5 which doesn't strike the viking hard enough... must be something I'm doing....

In the comment above, I meant level 5. Some of the puzzles have to do with cutting it in the right spot or angle.

Also, the levels are kind of slow to load for me, not sure if this is normal for Nitrome or not.

See a hollow anywhere that they'd just about fit into?

Can you find a way to get them there?

for the one on the left, cut the right rope of the lower platform...it will make a ramp

then you can cut the right rope of the upper platform, and she'll roll right into the left-side hole

for the one on the right, you'll have to be a little more tricky

cut the lower platform as above

then cut the top one so that she rolls into the crescent-shaped ice wheel

the wheel will deposit her right in the hole

then clip the arms of the ice wheel

then you can just clip the rope for the Viking, and he'll roll right down the ramp.

3 move solution for level 17:

See the top right-most lady? Cut across the left rope of her platform. Be careful not to slice across her or the middle rope which is for the block below her

A few seconds into the swing of that platform, cut the right rope. The platform should knock the rat-thing into the boat.

Then cut the left rope of the platform the viking is on

It takes a bit of trial and error because of the timing, but it IS possible as I've done it multiple times.

There was a game on here a while back very similar in gameplay, but lacking the stylistic excitement that Nitrome tends to have. Does anyone else remember that? It was with pieces of wood and balls instead of vikings and ice... but it was a little bit ago I believe.

The load times are probably due to the fact the site is being battered. The physics of the game won't make a difference (unless the coding is downright shoddy which I doubt).

But yeah, I can confirm the loading times are slow for me too despite 24 meg broadband so it's probably a server side problem.

This game reminds me slightly of Nitrome's Mutiny in the way the characters move both onscreen and in the minimap. I like this one more because its a puzzle game rather than one that involves shooting and luck against opponents.
I've also been wondering (maybe someone here can answer):
Is it pronounced Nitrome with a long O sound and a silent E or NitroMe with a long O and a long E?
Anyway, thanks. It's a great game. I really like Nitrome and think this may be one of their best so far.

For level 29:

Don't roll the lady and the round guy first! Instead, cut the upper right hinge, angling down to the right a little bit, so the lady will roll to the right after the next cut. Then cut below the upper right viking down to above the middle hinge, angling so the chunk will slide down to the left. Might have to cut a little chunk off the left to make it slide.

The idea is to get the chunk with the viking to slide down, push the round viking off, and the lady rolls to the right and continues to push the top viking chunk to the left.

Once they're in the boat, cut under the lower viking from left to right, then vertically just to the right of him. He'll swing down, and you slice him off at the right moment.

Nice game, cool puzzle concept, pleasing music. Better than most of Nitrome's new games. I worked with my sister to master this. Some of those challenges are very tough (we'd kinda freak out on... I believe the second to last level... they kept sliding off into the icy, fathomless depths...) which is nice. Even at the end of the game there doesn't seem to be any plot (even in typical Nitrome end-of-game-story fashion...) which kinda surprised me a little. It's just not quite right without something like, "Black Viking grinned as he looked at his winnings! Blue Viking looked on tearful - why did he have to bet that Black Viking couldn't cross the deadly icy ocean without getting cold and wet?!"

Mutiny, ye foulest of foul, yet remains the only Nitrome game I haven't completely conquered. I really can't stand that game...

32:

First, just drop the frozen viking into the boat.

Second, chop just under the uppermost pivot, and then before the viking can slide off the left side, chop again at about the thinnest point. If you do it right, he'll slide right into the boat.

Finally, chop just under the remaining viking, he should be catapulted into the boat with a few inches to spare.

level 29:

1) cut just below the fat lady to roll her down and push the block into the boat

2) cut below both of the vikings in one straight line basically cutting the ice berg in half. the bottom half will fall into the sea. now get it as thin as you can by cutting very close to the vikings.

3) cut just to the right of the left viking which will swing him to the left and then cut him off the pivot and he should fall into the boat.

4) this one's a tad harder: cut off the rest of the ice around the left pivot as for it not to get in the way. release the third viking from the pivot above him by cutting just above his head. repeat the same method as above by cutting him as he swings towards the boat however i recommend doing it on the second swing as the first has too much momentum and hits the left pivot. its all about timing and took me a while!

I'm afraid that for the first time in human history the charming small screen-esk setting of Nitrome isn't in favour of the game.
Making a long cut that ends or begins near the edge of the screen is a precarious operation and you cant see the whole field in one screen and are obliged to scroll is a bit annoying at times.

Wow. I think this is the first ever nitrome game that i've finished beginning to end. I'm proud of myself. Probably because it was physics and thinking-based, and not so much of the platforming skills were required.

33:

For this one, it took a bit of luck, but i first chopped straight horizontally across the two bottom-most ice blocks. This made the circle go straight up, then before the birds hit the roof, I chopped off the one on the left so that it would zoom to the right, straight into the stalactite. Then right before it hit i severed the cables of the rightmost 3 birds, and the circle slowly dropped straight into the boat. I was like, "Woah, did that seriously just happen?! Nice!" I then popped the lady and watched as the viking slid out, and chief guy smashed one of the iceblocks that dared to touch his boat.

39:

What I did was chop twice reeeaaaally quickly in the middle, so that I had 2 big blocks of ice fall straight down, more or less. It took me a bunch of tries, but eventually the blocks landed so that the 4 vikings slid towards the middle and i chopped a little more so that the viking leader guy could destroy the blocks.

The way to solve a level is to post asking for help on JiG, and then try it a few more times and you'll get there!

Tho waycooler has posted his method, mines a bit different:

Alt 39:

I cut a thin slice horizontally off the bottom of the block, then trimmed the remaining "seesaw" block so that by the the vikings fell, they landed on the horizontal piece resting above the boat. It takes a few tries, but if you trim carefully you'll get there.

Finally passed level 16!!!

Cut diagonally from the upper left towards the lower right somewhere below the top viking. You have to try it at different angles and distances from the top viking before you can get the right weight distribution.

You can do 40 with 3 cuts like this:

First, cut just under the frozen viking. Make sure that you cut through the 'arm' that is closer to the boat, and cut at an angle just shallow enough that it doesn't slide by itself. Then cut the big piece of ice so that it swing downwards. As it is about to hit the rock, chop of the last 'bump' so that it keeps going and knocks the viking into the boat. You can also let it bounce and cut it as it comes back.

Actually, you can do level 40 with two cuts.

Make the first cut like I described above. The second cut chops off the first two bumps so that they are barely attached to each other. That piece of ice falls and knocks the viking into the boat.

Level 38: Cut down the centre of the block either side of the single bolt, then as the 2 blocks fall cut a bit off the right side of the right block so it angles back into the boat.
Level 40: slice just under the viking so its angled slihghtly towards the boat the cut above the bottom bolt on the big block of ice. Wait for it to swing back towards the boat and cut it at the right time so it falls and knocks the viking onto the boat.

Level 33. It takes some time to get it done but after this u should be able to get it done.
Cut the 2 bottom rocks at the same time, Then as it circle's head(not the Birds)is about to pass the cliffs edge, cut the right rock.
Then as soon as u have passed the cliff, cut two lines on the right side. The birds will then do the rest and pull the circle directly over the boat. All you have to do is pop the lady and then the viking will drop directly into the boat.

I enjoyed level 30.

You wait until the ice is slanting slightly down to the right, then cut loose the viking on the left. He should roll safely to the middle. When the ice starts tipping to the right because of his weight, cut loose the other viking. They should both get to the boat.

You're welcome!!! :D

Ok, the other spoilers for level 40 didn't help me. This is what I did.

Cut just under the viking, slanting slightly to the left, but don't let him fall off. Then cut the rope that is holding the rod. Cut just above the bottom left pivot point, and then immediately cut under the top pivot point. This should knock the viking onto the boat. If not, try cutting part of the big block of ice to hit him onto it.

Sean - Level 20

When you read the previous comments, you will find help for nearly every level, I guess. This is, what I found on page 2 for Level 20

It is about cutting pieces from the hanging block to make it swing and drop the vikings. You can hit the third one with flying particles. Start cutting from the left, and keep cutting until it starts to swing fast enough.

Greetings, Kayleigh

I really enjoyed the game of Ice Breaker (in fact, I just finished!) I found it a very nice game, especially the soundtrack.

The game made me think of the element Thorium (90), mainly because thorium was named after Norse god of lightning, Thor.

But a fun game, provides an ideal level of difficulty and levels. The difficulty helps provide a good amount of replay value, not to mention all of the expansions.

5/5 stars. Now I'm going to play, maybe, the Red Clan or Super Energy Apocalypse or something.

Whoops, also, a guide for Level 40, the final level:

The last Viking missing from your crew remains frozen in a block of ice shaped like a person with one of his legs twice as long as his other limbs, the Viking in his head. Above him there is what looks like an ice rack gear, two ramps, one to the right of the rack gear and the other to the right of the frozen Viking. A movable rock "plate" would cause a ball rolling down to go from the rack gear, bounce off the plate, roll down the other ramp, and hit the frozen Viking.

I know the creators of the game probably had some purpose for the mechanism, but it's mostly just eye candy. Only the ice person and the Viking frozen within matter to winning.

1. Cut the ice person so all that is left is the frozen Viking, the two grey circlew below him, and the ice in between. Try to make the strucuture as thin as possible.

3. Cut the structure as far down as possible. Then cut it again, just above where you cut the previous one. Keep on cutting just above the previous cut until the strucutre begins to swing.

4. Carefully cut just the Viking from the ice while it is swinging towards the boat. It may take several attempts (it's governed largely by chaos theory and the placement of the cuts to an incredibly precise level).

5. If the Viking falls into the sea on Step 4, go back to Step 1. If the Viking lands so it is balancing on the boat's tail carvings, reset and start from Step 1. If the Viking lands onboard the boat, the Viking onboard will smash the ice, thus completing the game.

An easier solution to #32.
Like my man said; first just chop the frozen Viking into the boat. THEN, slice under the upper Viking so he slides off into the boat. THEN, slice horizontally under the uppermost pivot, then vertically in the skinny part of the lower ice platform. If you get it in the right spot, it should catch the sickle-looking ice and the last Viking will slide right into the boat.
