Barbarian is a one- or two-player fighting game. As the name suggests, the fighters are barbarians. The game offers sword combat in various locales. The game has also a one-player plot mode, where the player has to defeat several fighters to fight evil wizard Drax to rescue princess Marina.

The port is faithful to the original, and even if the graphics have been updated to fit nowadays standards, all the variety, and the fun "specials" of the original version have been kept.

This game only features the fighting sequence: there is NO story mode, NO fighting Drax and NO getting the princess back (although sprites and animations where made :((

Anyway, there's always time for a quick sword-fight in one's life, right? ;)

Have fun!

A really excellent port of the old classic, with the art beautifully bringing it up to date.

Great work mate.

Ahah! Glad you liked it - sorry again we didn't end up working on this together: there would have been a story mode, and an happy princess at the end of the game if you had been on it, I'm sure :)

Great port. Would have been five stars if you had carried over the story mode and everything, but still an excellent, faithful effort. Good work.

I'm not that much of a coder - got help at the beginning of the project, then the dev had to go, so I ended up finishing it myself, and ...well... as I said, I'm more of an artist than a coder :)

Thanks for the rating, by the way!
