Vikingard is a mobile game developed by Netease. The developers describe the game’s genre as “casual simulation RPG”, though it is worth noting that the game has strong base-building elements as well. There are many different features and systems in Vikingard beyond that, though. You can collect many Viking-themed characters, train them and equip them with gear. You can also date the characters, though everything will remain strictly family-friendly. Another game mechanic is raising pets – they will provide your tribe with various benefits.
While it is possible to play this game completely alone, joining an alliance is very beneficial. A strong alliance is tremendously useful to its members – but it also takes effort to make your Alliance into a strong one. As alliances compete for limited resources, clashes will inevitably happen – an opportunity to engage in PvP with long-term benefits to the victor.
Player competition doesn’t always have to be serious, however. To spice up the gameplay, Vikingard also has several mini-games that can be played competitively. With significantly lower stakes, mini-games are a game mode that leaves no hard feelings – a good way to make friends in-game.
Vikingard is available only on iOS and Android devices… officially. It is still possible to play Vikingard on PC or Mac, and this guide will show you how.
Play Vikingard on PC or Mac using Bluestacks
Note: Playing Vikingard on PC or Mac via Bluestacks will allow you to use a keyboard and mouse, however, according to the latest updates, this won’t give you an advantage, as the game uses special separate servers for gamers playing with emulators.
Among the variety of Android emulators, Bluestacks is the most advanced one. Firstly, it is available for both Windows and Mac with full functionality. Secondly, it allows effortless, automatic transition to PC game controls and convenient hot-keys that you are used to from any regular PC game. It provides high performance and graphics in any mobile game even on a relatively weak PC or Mac, as computer processors are usually more powerful than smartphone ones. To run Vikingard on PC or Mac you need to perform these easy steps:
- Download the latest version of Bluestacks for Windows or MacOS.
- Open Play Store and sign-in with your Google account.
- Download Vikingard from the catalog and run it.
- Bluestacks may offer you to run better engine for this game.
- Install the game and start playing!

iMyFone MirrorTo is an application that allows you to control your smartphone from a PC or Mac.

With an advanced keyboard mapping abilities, similar to what is offered by Android emulators, you will be able to play Vikingard on PC easily, all while enjoying the precision of PC controls.
This method has an obvious disadvantage – it requires you to have a phone capable of running Vikingard. However, there are several advantages as well. Because the game doesn’t actually run on your computer, the specifications of your PC don’t matter. What’s more, it is unlikely that you will be banned in any game for using this tool – something that might happen while using emulators.
MirrorTo can be used to control both iOS and Android devices, so unless you have a weak smartphone, this app will be useful to you.

Play Vikingard on M1 Mac
Note: According to our research, playing Vikingard on an M1 Mac may cause a temporary or permanent account ban in the game, that is why it is recommended to play with the secondary account or as a guest.
As you may already know, M1 Macs (latest Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, Mac Mini, iMac) are able to run many iOS apps and games on MacOS. If for apps it can be useful because many iPad and iPhone apps are very advanced and suitable for desktop usage, in gaming this is just magic. M1 chips (especially M1 Pro and M1 Max) are much more powerful than iPhone and iPad chips, in many types of games (shooters, racing) keyboard and mouse (trackpad) controls are much more useful than touch.
To download and play Vikingard on M1 Mac do the following:
- On your Mac go to Mac App Store and click on your profile in the bottom left corner.
- Under account click iPhone & iPad Apps.
- Download Vikingard on your Mac device and start playing!
Note: not all iOS games and programs support this feature. If you can’t find the game in Mac App Store, it is likely that the game’s developers have decided not to support it.
