The Barbarian is a full game. It's 30+ hours of gameplay. It's a huge world with 13 environments filled with 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 some 3rd-party 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.

Over 2000 iOS users have played The Barbarian in it's first week. Join them and experience the challenge!

This game was made by an indie developer. It's my first big release, I hope you enjoy it. I'm continuing to work on it, and you'll likely notice many updates as I respond to any bugs reported to me and feature requests that you guys ask for which make sense.

I will not be abandoning this project, I will continue to work and make it better and better. Check out our forums, watch game play videos, at our website. If you choose to support this game, I will work very hard to make sure it's the most valuable iOS game purchase you've made! Thanks!

(Known bug: Unity's implementation of Metal has a graphics bug when multiple real time shadows are active. This doesn't happen to often in the game, but selecting "Torch/Sun Only" for shadow settings will fix the problem. In most cases that's the ideal setting for your device anyway. This will be fixed in a future update. Check the website for other known bugs and status reports on fixes.)

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.
