-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.

Very Impressive

I am very impressed by this game, I love the style, the combat, and the difficulty. I tested the demo on a site called MoFunZone and I enjoyed it there, I hope that this is not your last game and that you continue your work in this field. Oh, by the way hybrid-479g you have to sclice the tentacles off the Zoggot until you get close enough to smash his face. cheerio!

Since the demo

I've been waiting for this! Brilliant combination of simplicity and complexity. I love the attention you've given this game and it shows from the very beginning. Keep it up and I'd love to see your next one :)

Well done 10/10

The gameplay is fun and interesting as one.
If I'm asked the only thing I'd change is adding a combo system that would work by the timing(Like in DMC). Besides that the game is perfect as it is. It's so simple yet challenging. The boss fights are all unique.

Though I'm having a tiny issue with the game, the loading ends most of the time before it really finished loading, so clicking play sends me to a blank black page, refreshing fixes it anyway.
