-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 4 / 5 stars

great game but

great game but does HE HAVE ADD?
The final boss is fricking ridiculous as he keeps on turning the opposite direction everytime he gets hit. There really needs to be a disable auto-perry button.

Good job.

Fun game. It's nice that you have to use a little strategy to do well, rather than purely hack-and-slash.

Also, I love that you used a Sir Terry Pratchett quote.

Why use Spacebar for everything?

Okay, using the Spacebar key for every damn combat option isn't working really well for me. I just can't manage to grab anything, including barrels. I just keep slicing through them.

So, I'd suggest using a seperate key for grabbing objects and enemies.

Great gameplay, great artwork, very good soundtrack. An overall excellent game, during all of my gameplay I only saw one bug and that was when i would try to throw a soldier, either an archer or a spear soldier. When tumbling through the air the soldier would fly slower and then it would disappear without doing anything.
