-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 slaughter shall be legendary

Game is among the best I've played on NG, there are a few things that I had trouble with though. A lot of times I try to pick up a barrel and I just hit it with my sword...needless to say I many time got blown away by exploding barrels. Also the last comment by Ocere about the jump not responding sometimes, that happened to me a few times, but only a few times. Another thing would be a better way to block incoming arrows, Frix the Objectionable was quite...infuriating, I'm not asking for a permanent parry like in the last update but when you are still I would like it if your sword could parry them just like they do with sword blows. Beyond that it is a challenging and engaging game...I gave you an eight because I'm actually taking this review serious...its that good. You guys make a damn good game I gotta say.

This games awesome!
Great Bosses
Liked The Blood
Very Addictive
Love the Soundtrack!

Falling off cliff after Stage Clear = Game Over?
Explosive barrels (I kept getting Juggled!)

Twice, not sure what i did but the man went into a looping attack.
I had to move very slowly and when it stopped he wouldn't move!
I found that if you attack an Enemy (Not Barrel) it goes back to normal?
