Barbarian is a one- or two-player fighting game. As the name suggests, the fighters are barbarians. The game offers sword combat in various locales. The game has also a one-player plot mode, where the player has to defeat several fighters to fight evil wizard Drax to rescue princess Marina.

The port is faithful to the original, and even if the graphics have been updated to fit nowadays standards, all the variety, and the fun "specials" of the original version have been kept.

This game only features the fighting sequence: there is NO story mode, NO fighting Drax and NO getting the princess back (although sprites and animations where made :((

Anyway, there's always time for a quick sword-fight in one's life, right? ;)

Have fun!

This was an okay game. Unfortunately it lacks the content that you've mentioned, basically a story mode. Otherwise though its a nice update from the previous version. It has this heavy metal theme but also throw in some classic Conan the Barbarian action and this is your result! Fighting is brutal and it blends in both action and some minor strategy along with (of course) luck. I ended up winning two bouts before having my head instantly lopped off which can also be done to your adversary. Which brings me to another problem, lack of various characters. Its basically one barbarian against another "doppelganger". Both are virtually the same barbarian in character design down to the last detail, the only minor difference is both color pallets or their color scheme via one being more brighter than the other. However, Its not entirely "bad" since these are minor flaws to behold. If story mode was implemented it would of been a better fighter for me. I'm going to bestow you a 1 in a half out of 5. And a 2/5 in voting power. This was again, an okay game and it did have some nice versatility especially in sprite motion and design. I hope you've enjoyed this review and keep creating friend. Good day.

Heya! Thanks for taking the time to review the game.

I'm an artist, and not much of a coder - I started this game with some help, but ended up finishing the polish phase myself. The game we originally planned was supposed to be bigger, but since we stopped dev mid-way through it, I decided to polish the parts that were mostly done, and publish the game "as is".
As an artist, most of the sprites work was done, as well as the background, etc, so I thought publishing the game would at least allow me to showcase my art :)
I believe the game is still very playable, but I do agree it lacks the "scope" of the original (although, not by much :))
