-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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Pure juice of AWESOMENESS

Usually I only go to NG for a few minutes to play some games while I'm driking up my daily dose of caffeine, but this game took up my whole morning as I finished up the game and played a bit on the barbarian fortress.

I wanna mate behind the bushes and make a baby with the gameplay system, gotta love how it is timing-based. Do not care about the reviews, its not the game that is repetitive, people are just playing it too damn much.

All the 3 names in the credits are equally responsible for the greatness that is this game, love the unique art style, gameplay is very well coded and the music sets you in the perfect mood for the bloodbath.

Recommending this game to everyone I know.

pure amazingness!

This is great! The graphics aren't spectacular, but the game MORE than makes up for it. So many cool ways to kill the enemy. So many epic parts! Play and vote 5/5 and 10/10 everyone! This is the best game I've played in months (on newgrounds)

It was...

Incredibly awesome, the hack n slash aspect of it was awesome. And the graphics, the scenery and the Clang! Clang! Wham! SLICKKKKKKk, as you decapitate your foes head with a mighty swing.

It truly captured the feelings of the battle, and the raw power of being a Barbarian.

The music was spot on, i didn't encounter many glitches as people have seem to come across, i stopped playing at the dragonsnout Cave, and I'll pick it up later.

The only hard boss that I've come across yet is the witch. Which was rather annoying.

It does get a bit repetitive after awhile, but what game doesn't?

My only complaint is the stale moves, I had hope that you would at least include more weapons, at least an array of Maces, Battle Axes, Spear, and a sword for the protagonist to wield for a short period of time.

Maybe picking up a weapon from fallen foes, I do agree that the main weapon should be a sword, as if it was any other weapon it wouldn't be the same. But the inclusion of other weapons would be nice. Like i said, it can just be picked up and swung around for a couple of turns.

Great game, worth the play, I do believe.

Keep it up.
