Keep on going

Keep on going, you have what it takes to make a fun sidescroller. More Features and characters would have been nice.

Truely a game to be played even if it was a quicky

"it an alright game but in my mind it should have been blammed for its graphics but averyfing but the grafix is kool-ish"-Some N00B

1.From how you spell your words, I've noticed you have not yet hit puberty.. And if you have, I think you should cut down on the masturbation and start doing some "b00k lurnin-z"...
2. The graphics were not SUPPOSED to amaze you from what I see. They were supposed to be simple, but fluid.. You're the type of guy that hated Zelda Wind Waker because of it's cell shaded goodness I'd bet..
3."Kool-ish?" What!? You aren't the fucking Kool-Aid man, give it a rest..

Fact is:
Graphics: Simple... Yes, here's the perfect defenition of what someone would mean by saying "simple" graphics. They're easy on the eye, however, not mind blowing. Perhaps in conclusion however, the movement is smooth. Oh, and FIY @ the "kool" dood that said the sword swings to slow.. This is because otherwise you could give the enemy no quarters and slash away until it died, where's the fun in that? And if the enemy could swing faster aswell, you'd get pwnd.

Style:There's a little cutesy barbarian named bob... 'Nough said.

Sound: Although ripped from the infamous Ragnarok Online, the right songs seemed to have been picked. A fast paced one for the last level and a robust midieval one for the first. Kudos.

Violence: When you slash a little guy's neck with your sword after a long fray of blocking/being blocked the blood that squirts high into the air is all but enthralling. It makes me happy :)

Interactivity:Whoever said an HP bar would be useful, go back to playing bob the builder via psx... Firstly, an HP bar would diminish just as quickly(3swipes of a sword, 2 of a mace/king's arm). Secondly, stop being a pussy.. The only REAL challenge in this game is the last boss. I see myself getting to him time and time again and dieng.. How the hell do you die?! Anyways, there's 3levels which lowers the interactivity quite a bit-but since it WAS a quicky-I'll let it slide ;)

Humor:*points at Style*

Overall:Barbarian Bob is truely a game to be played, even if it was a quicky. Stop being pussies/shallow and strengthen your sword arm Barbarian! Nice going Skribble_Style!
