I want to thank EVERY SINGLE PERSON who emailed me supporting Bob from the day he was released unto the world early 2005, right up until the release of this remake; also not forgetting those who've played, commented and voted for it here on NG. You're the reason this game exists, so give yourselves a pat on the back!

I hope you all enjoy playing the game as much as I enjoyed (re)making it, and be sure to comment and let me know what you think! I do try to reply to everyone who posts a coherent comment.

Also, if you liked the game and think it's worth a buck or two, please go ahead and click on the 'Donate' link in the title menu, or the advertisement in the preloader, and help feed a starving indie game designer :D



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good attempt

The first one was fuckingly tough


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


this is rad, i luv the ppls design and the game is stratigic and fun! replaying for medals and playing with cheats and horde is fun! why a 9 no 10? well when terrance died he just kept going red and wouldnt stop so i had 2 refresh, 2nd is its impossible to complete it without shield bcuz of the 1st enemy, ur forced to shield, so thats 2 medals fucked cause then u cant get barbarian king medal, thats the aggro in this game is button mashingly intense!!!!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not Bad

Well I thought the basic idea of this type of hack and slash game was interesting.
The idea was fun and got pretty interesting with the types of enemies and setting.
The game was actually quite a bit to laggish and got really annoying sometimes.
The game's lasting apeal was over in quite a flash and got boring fairly quickly.
Pretty fun game to play and fairly enjoyable as long as you don't mind some lag.
