-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.

I made an account just to be able to make a comment on this game:
This is by far the best free game i have ever played!
I love the simple controls with the still big variety of actions. I found myself gaining a lot of fighting skills during the course of this game, whicht gave it a great roleplaying feel.
And the story! OMFG! Epic and great fun with an awesomely funny ending in my opinion!
And the music is so awesome! This game would be half as good without it!

I doubt that anyone will ever make a better free game during my lifetime, so please, PLEASE make a sequal, and i will form a cult that worships you!

Need to Expand

I dont see why you guys haven't turned this into a xbox live download, or gone to psp. You could extend the game, add level editor, make a TON more enemy types, and add co-op and pvp functionality. For even cooler results, add an alternate campaign where you are an orc facing an army of men. If N+ could do it, so can you.

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.
