The only campaign achievements I haven't earned from Wings of Liberty are the ones earned by playing the Lost Viking mini-game. For whatever reason my NES trained hands could not play a top down shooter with the keyboard (more truthfully I was plain terrible at this particularly game).

This partial completion is for whatever reason bothering me so I want to give the mini-game another go. On this attempt rather than fight with my keyboard I'd like to use my Xbox controller. Can the Lost Viking be played with a controller?

    Remember that bombs also destroy all enemy projectiles! This realization was all I needed for those achievements :-) Good luck!

Yes, but you will need controller software that allowed you to remap keyboard keys to the buttons on the controller.

You would need some software like Switchblade or Pinnacle Game Profiler.

  • So this would work with practically any game that uses the keyboard? Mar 14, 2013 at 8:13
  • Yes, some software also work with mouse

    Switchblade doesn't support Windows 8 nor Windows 7. The same company renamed their product and just recently added support for Windows 8.
