-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.


very fun at all \0/

That clone boss is the most rage inducing rigged ass boss fight I have ever played. Even when mashing the space bar like crazy I can't win the contest. Worst Boss Ever.

Godgame creator this trap a do no´t jump is i must 7 repeat this lvl only this trap.

So the only two things i didn't like about this game : The ending... All that hard work.. for nothing!? bah, i expect a sequel, one that actually gives all this fighting a purpose, if you please!

Second : Once you find out the patterns for bosses, they become laughably easy. It is self explanatory. I kinda started to realize this when i was fighting Princess Vicious

Aside from those two little flaws, the game was amazing . I remember playing it here and there when i was a child, i got stuck at the Bloody Swamp boss fight (Zöggot), I was just too stupid to realize there was a pattern to his attacks, and i kept trying to rush to his head and kept getting pulled back till i got sick of this. Along with a few other childhood games of mine, it brings me so much joy and nostalgia to play this game. It is very well made, and the soundtracks are amazing!

Looking forward for more of you. :)

When Ossum the Destroyer was about to come I made him trip over and then i finished him off; What a hard boss to beat.
