Believe it or not, we are currently working on a sequel titled BARBARIAN ODYSSEY. Website: http://barbarianodyssey.com

Update 2020-11-08:

Barbarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel is now freely downloadable and OPEN SOURCE!

More info: https://mythologicinteractive.com/BarbarianOnslaughtTheSecretOfSteel


-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.
