-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.

A nice game, best game on NGs? seriously folks? There is one button and the combo and finish system/even picking up a barrel is just plain annoying to work. Forget about jump attacking. Got past the second big boss and was a bit bored.

A hard game does not make it the best game ever or even close. The best looking game lately??? You can just look on the frontpage to see what can be done.

Good music. This game was fun for a bit, and I don't mean to burn you, the author, but this game seems to be severly overrated in reviews.

Its fun. There could be a lot more though.

It got boring after about 2 or 3 levels of the same thing.

Could really really really use some sort of upgrade/gold/new weapon system.

Heck checking to see if i got another weapon was the whole reason i kept going

Okay, and then ridiculous

Awesome game, and then you get up to the gorge of death. There are over 15 black knights attacking me at once, and even if I skill that some super-powerful boss comes. Why can't you move, get health, and then fight?

Seriously bosses too hard, I was fighting that stupid swamp guy and when i was fighting the thrid row of tentacles a tentacle at the beginning popped up while i was fighting and pulled me back, but i loved the game graphics and gameplay of hack n slash but the bosses are too much
