App description: "I have a real RPG to play with on my iPad now!" -Denin, Touch Arcade Forums

The Barbarian is a full, action packed RPG game designed to have a desktop-like feel on mobile! Over 30 Hours of gameplay featuring 13 environments, hordes of over 100 enemy types and thousands of potential weapons and armor as well as a skill and class system that changes how the game can be played.

It's an open world adventure that won't hold your hand, won't give you any 3rd-party "helper" character to tell you what to do next. There are puzzles, there are dead ends, there are hidden secrets and many quests for you to solve.

** Requires 1GB of RAM or More. WILL NOT WORK without 1GB of RAM **

FEATURES
* Open world play with 13 huge maps
* Over 30 hours of Gameplay
* Works with all Made for iPhone Gamepads!
* Massively re-playable
* Skills (48) and Spells (30) allow for character specialization
* Quality Settings allow for play on all 1GB+ iOS devices (Shadow & Resolution options)
* Active Developer & Forum

_________________________________________________

The Barbarian was made by a solo, independent developer. It's my first big release, and I hope you enjoy it. The game is being updated often with bug fixes and new character models.

Your support means I can continue making more RPG games for Desktop & Mobile. Really, FULL Role-playing Games that don't cut corners for mobile. Games without in-app purchase gimmicks, that are designed to be fun and engaging, rather than grinding and pay-to-win.

Let me know what you think! I think you'll enjoy it! :)

That's my worry too. I've never heard of this before, so unless someone takes one for the team i dont think it's going to get much attention here.

The price is only too much for a game we don't really know much about. If this is a great deep arpg it would be totally worth it. It says it has MFI support and its open world.

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.
