-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 game has been broken since months ago!!!
You start the level and on the first jump you have to make you either go back to the beggining or fall back in the hole!
And the map has several problems once you get back to it!
Can you please fix it?The game was great without these terrible bugs!!!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Decent game, with good graphics, and great physics, and randomness of the barrel spawning, but the last boss, and the witch boss (along with the throwing glitch and the few times the game didn't respond to my jump input, rather ignoring it and jumping the other direction and shorter than usual) loses you a star. If he's a "clone", why can't i do his little unblockable jump/stun move? Never,EVER give them a move they can spam. For gods sake, it's like playing MK online. Last straw was when he use that move, and only that move, to kill me. I got hit with it at the beginning of writing this review...yep, still stunned. Also,timing is so difficult in this game as it encourages button mashing my poor spacebar, yet you built an entire boss around being damaged by timed swings. It's a luck boss that abuses push and just throws you into the fire.

Love it (I'm Jepton, for those Mythologicinteractive forum members).

Once you get to "The Pass" and "Dragonsnout Mountain", it is extremely hard when you face the mini-bosses (Both, orange enemies) and the boss (DSM).

Good game.

Possibly one of the best games ever. Controls and gameplay are very good and the finishing moves are simply epic. 5 stars for BO.
