-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.

Fun but too hard.

Too long for just space bar smashing.

SUPERFIGHTERS is much Better


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not that great

why is it that you throw a barrel at the enemy it doesnt explode but when it rolls and hits you it explodes... doesnt make any sense....
try using other keys than space bar and hold space bar its just lame
the archers seem to hit me 100% of the time, they have to perfect of aim, one would fire an arrow i would move out of the way and some how i would still get hit...
the game got boring by the second level its Too repetitive


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


it could have a little better controls...but i liked the animation and it was pretty fun all around

Simple but Challenging

Having the entire game run on such a simple set of controls with so much attacking ability is interesting. The bosses were definitely HARD and CHALLENGING, even when a pattern was realized. Nice style of graphics, good gameplay!
