The new and improved Barbarian Bob is here, built from the ground up with new levels, enemy ai, gameplay mechanics, cheats and secret items. The game also supports NG Medals, so have fun earning them all!

Its imperative that you use your shield as much as you can. Or you WILL die. <3

All Hail Barbarian Bob

This is by far my favorite game on newgrounds. For some reason, I just can't stop playing it. I was kind of dissapointed though when I found out there were only three levels. Make a second one with more levels! That would be really fun.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Easy strategy

The game is quite easy, all you do is block then attack, until you kill. It get's boring. Nontheless, it's fun. (for a while) I would still agree it's a little addicting but hardly much.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Difficult and very addictive.

It takes quite a few tries to beat this game, but it's never tiring to go over the same portion. It's quite satisfying to fight in this game.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

fun action game!

fun action game. though the variety of enemies could be greater and having only 3 lives makes it very hard. it would be much better if say 3 hits took off a life, taking you back to the begining of the level, but once you've then lost all three it would be game over and you'd have to start all over again. though overall you've done an excellent job, these points are just minor details that could in future be improved upon, otherwise, excellent work! keep it up!
