Mainly titled Prophecy I - The Viking Child was a game created by Imagitec Design Limited on Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore Amiga, Atari Lynx, Game Boy, Game Gear and the PC.

This video game was based on a Viking Child called Brian who must enter the Halls of Valhalla and do battle against an evil god Loki and his minions. The game closely resembled 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. These facts earned Viking Child a reputation for being a clone of Wonder Boy in Monster Land, or, according to Amiga Reviews, an inferior copy.

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
