-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.

The slime boss is always a pain, the pattern just hangs on pure speed of your attacks and turning fast enough, you'll always get hit, but doing it right, you just get hit less

A great game so far, but glitches and bugs really ruin the mood, but art style, mechanics and ambient are beautiful and it would be awesome to have another Barbarian Onslaught.

nmms sta dificil :,v

One of my favourite game on the entire internet. Simple, funny and with a lot of enemies to face! I don't know why, but sometimes i come back here to play it and i get addicted.
Some bosses are tough! It was not easy the first time to beat them all, but the satisfaction in the end! And great final boss, a very cool evil overlord!

And thanks for the endless enemies level. Very fun to play!

Great job!

Very fun

Well I have to say this was a very fun game has some nice vibe and the gameplay was really good some things were tricky and the boss battles were not hard at all very easy infact too easy so making the boss battles harder would be a big plus I would think

Make the boss battles harder
