-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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


This was a fun game. I completed it, and boy did I have some trouble fighting all those bosses, but it was fun trying to solve how they can be defeated. I was disappointed by the ending though. By disappointing, I mean it was a good ending, but you just have to say "Awww" for the barbarian in the end ha ha.

Man, this is brutal!

I LOVE it!
Unlike what other people say, I think the one button gameplay is an awesome idea, and great moves.
The parry system makes it a lot easier, and the ending bosses rock, but the Duke of hell guy wasn't the hardest. Best ending video ever btw xD.
Anyway: A great production, and nice gameplay and graphics; Make more!

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!
