-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.

Good Game!

Needs more combos and finishers though...

oh and TIP!!

For the annoying tentacle boss,
it only takes 3 hits to the head to kill it.
Just hack your way through the tentacles.
But when you're surrounded on both sides,
stay in the middle and slice each tentacle.
Slice, turn, slice, turn, repeat.
That way, you'll hit one tentacle
and when you turn to hit the other,
you'll prolly counter its attack.
Don't favor one tentacle over another
or you'll prolly get hit more..
Those tentacles do a lot more damage than they let on..

great game, concept and stuff

granny is too hard, you should have either given her powerful attack either made her hard to hit, you have done both witch makes her too hard. she isnt challenging, she is frustrating.

actually its not the bosses that i am after in this game, its the masses of slayable monsters that splatter under the sword and attract a swarm of crows

make the granny easier, i am bored with trying the level for the hundredth time...

I just love this game, its the almost the perfect gaming style for me.
As I said on the demo, the idea about the posibility of using more weapons sounds great, maybe you could also try going to another lvl with the game, stats, skills, equipment,shop, exp, etc. Those are just ideas, the game it's god damn awesome as it is, but id like to see the option of more weapons

Most excellent.

Very good game. I have a few complaints though:

-Needs more special attacks and moves
-Needs more enemy variety
-Some levels are too long
-Some bosses are too hard

I got to the last boss. I'm trying to beat him but so far I haven't been able to hurt him.
