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? ;)
