-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.

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!

It became very repetitive. There should've been some type of element to upgrade your character, or maybe get new weapons. Overall, it was an okay game. If another one is made, I would like it to be shorter.

seems good

The game seems alright, except the attacks, I wasn't able to tell a difference in how to do them, it would just have a space bar, with Very little detail on how the attack differences from others. I experienced the glitch, where you fall through the level and die. I am running on Mozilla Fire fox.

a pretty fun little game

albeit, the controlls are a little boring, and the attacks are a bit simple, it's kind of a spacebar mashing game, but the graphics and music sort of turned this 'space bar masher' into a nice in depth game. so i'm going to give it 7/10
