-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.



last level at the end, went to finish off a enemy on the ground and just slid straight into a hole, wouldt let me jump out or walk off was really annoying :/ otherwise good game , but its a bit repetetive

A bit more.

Eh... some different keys instead of JUST space bar for actions would be nice. I don't know about other people, but picking up barrels and kicking was fairly difficult for me. Bit monotonous. All you do is smash people, which is no doubt a ton of fun. The graphics are cool. It's nothing spectacularly new or innovative, but it has it's perks. Just needs a bit more variation and ideally different keys for different actions.

People find this review helpful!

too long good game tho

this games fair long, its pretty good.


i have got to point this out. is this game stinky because its called BO. games ok

It was quite good

I only played the first lvl because i have to go out lol. but from what i saw it was quite a good game the finishing moves were kl. The graphics were not that good but i thought they looked quite kl that way. There was only one problem there was only one button for attacking meaning that when i wanted to kick i could'en even when it said i could. You should make it so different buttons do different things.
