Barbarian:The Death Sword : The Classic from the 80's Returns!!

Barbarian - The Death Sword.

A remake of the classic Mortal Kombat style combat title from the 80's, the fighting game puts players in the role of a barbarian warrior fighting to save the princess Marianna from the evil sorcerer Drax.

The ultimate warrior Barbarian is back! Launched in 1987 by Palace Software, the game Barbarian - The Ultimate Warrior is now a cult favorite.

Picture above from the original classic i knew

Fight bloodthirsty warriors, kill the evil sorcerer Drax and save the beautiful princess Marianna! Watch the official trailer and...Prepare to die!

Barbarian - The Death Sword is scheduled to be available in February 2012 for Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad and Android.

It will also have cross-platform multiplayer. Itís not clear as to if Mac warriors will be able to compete against PC warriors or if it will only be Mac versus iOS. Iím sure there would be a lot of happy fighters if one could fight against PC, Mac, iOS or Android.:source:

Let's hope it brings back the memories of back then
