-Small update added (2010-01-21), adding a few bug fixes and gameplay tweaks. For instance, you can now drop enemies that you have picked up by pressing the down key.
-If you fall through the level and die after clearing a stage, you could try lowering the quality and/or turning off the camera effects in the options menu.
-It appears we should point out that ALL THE BOSSES ARE IN FACT BEATABLE. Each has a certain pattern that needs to discovered, that's all. If it doesn't always make perfect sense, sue us :)
-Finishing all 19 levels unlocks the Barbarian Stronghold survival level, where you must hold off the hordes for as long as you can.
-Again, thanks for the great reviews, frontpage and collection!

A young barbarian sets out on a quest to find the legendary Secret of Steel...

This sequel took nearly a year(!) to finish and contains more enemies, 19 levels, boss fights, complex combat and physics engines, geographical puzzle solving, an epic musical score and an intriguing storyline.

To all the fans who supported this game, big thanks! We really got a kick out of the reception the demo got. And many thanks to hzlancer for his masterpiece of a soundtrack.

For the next one....

I think we should get like a teamate in the second game. Like an archer or a mage that follows our guy and talks to him about the current quest and whatnot. It would feel less like 1 vs 100000000 guys lol.

A bit more.

Eh... some different keys instead of JUST space bar for actions would be nice. I don't know about other people, but picking up barrels and kicking was fairly difficult for me. Bit monotonous. All you do is smash people, which is no doubt a ton of fun. The graphics are cool. It's nothing spectacularly new or innovative, but it has it's perks. Just needs a bit more variation and ideally different keys for different actions.
