Game: Age of Barbarian
Platform: PC (Desura, DRM-free)
Developer: Crian Soft
In a world where reality blends with dreams, an ancient revolting and unmentionable evil has woken up, bringing with it death and chaos. Only courage, force and steel can bring back order.
Age of Barbarian is a side scrolling game that mixes many different elements together: Role Play Game, Platform and Hack'n Slash. It takes, reconsiders and amplifies the original concept of games such as Moonstone and the Barbarian series, mixing in elements from Prince of Persia. Aside from the battles, there are zones to explore, traps to avoid and even small riddles to solve.
Age of Barbarian is strongly inspired by Robert E. Howard's world of Conan and its representation by the great illustrator Frank Frazetta and has an added splash of horror.
