-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.

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.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


The combat system is pretty fun, but I can't work out how to beat the dam keeper.. as I couldn't hit at all, I presumed that there's a sweet spot where you can hit it and damage its health, but I just cant find that sweet spot. Alright game otherwise

At first, the game seemed WAY to simple to me and I was even about to quit when, all of the sudden, two enemies came at me over a cliff of spikes while I had an enemy in my hand. Without thinking, I quickly threw the enemy at the other two during their mid leap, and they all fell into the the spikes. I wow'd. As I kept playing, the game I thought had been so simple had begun to turn into something more then I thought it was. I grabbed a barrel and threw at an oncoming arrow as I quickly turned around and engaged in a "Contest" with an enemy behind me, winning and then using the power I earned from that to behead and enemy opposite of me. The small things like shaking camera, lightning flashing, rain falling, heads flying, and the beautiful music all make this game an excellent one.

I hope to see more in the future.
