Great game with stylish graphics just the combat system could be better.
The medals are cool to.
Great game! But there's a few glitches...
Hey! I fell in love with Barbarian Bob back in 2005 and it's one of the games that inspired me to become a flash game designer. Thanks for re-doing this :)
I played it on easy but still couldnt get very far. The reason is that quite often I just can't shield. I'll have to do a 360 first before I can block again. I'd get hit once or twice everytime because of this. It happened to me with almost every enemy. Very frustrating. My game ended when I fell off a cliff :( I clicked on the continue button, but for some reason poor Bob appears off screen probably below the screen somewhere and just falls to his death again, because I'll automatically end up at the game over screen once more. I tried this a couple of times, but poor Bob just wont appear on a stable platform to continue from...
I like the new backgrounds and it's also nice to see the old ones there as well :) The music is funny and weird, I like it :)
Thanks for the review! I'll definitely put that on the list of bugs to check. Very much appreciated, sir!
Poor Fighting Gameplay
The graphics are descent (for Barbarian Bob Syle)
The gameplay plain sucks, I'm sorry. The guards swing wayyyy too fast and trap you in a cycle where you can not attack back or block.
It has potential, but the fighting was horrible.
The guards have timers that make them give you enough time to either shield or parry. If you keep getting hit, try changing the timing of YOUR attacks to throw off their rhythm.
One minor thing: Sometimes the guards can attack you, but you can't attack them. It's like they constantly block, and you can't block back.
Just had to fix in a preloader, so all the stinky impatient guys would've known when the game is finished loading (IT DOES, JUST WAIT ^^ )
