I love this game!

Obviously there's tons of tributes to Conan, mainly the 80s Governator movie. One thing by the end boss was really awesome!

Still there's more to it than that. Lots of other fantasy influences, most will recognize the thief and riding beast from Golden Axe. I imagine the sorcerers who appear later in the game are a tip of the helmet to Tar'hai wizards from the "Airtight Garage".

The game is brutal, punishing and at the same time fun and exhilerating. It's perfectly designed levels, tons of playback such as finding all the diamonds, and has the control it demands. Only two levels as I write this - found another incredible Golden Axe tribute part way through, a hidden area.


This game is SOOOO worth the money and I hope they make more levels, but well worth it for one, certainly two. The beginning mini-game "Against the Horde" is feature enough for some casual gaming fun!

Tiny Barbarian is an indie gem. The gameplay is hard enough to be challenging and engaging enough to keep you playing until the end!

The music is top notch and the art direction really help make this game stand out.

I have put a good 7-10 hours into this game before it made it onto Steam.

I would recommend this game to anyone/everyone.

What do you like doing with your time? Does it involve killing snake, bird and miscellaneous soldiers that probably had a famillies to go home to? Maybe while doing some solid platforming and pillaging their greatest treasures? Yes? Then Tiny Barbarian is the game for you! Damn right those children are going to have a terrible Christmas, you just murdered their parents! All in a day's work for a barbarian.

I've beat this game at least 5 times before it made its way onto Steam, and everytime I do I feel a little more barbaric. Can you say the same? Of course you can't, YOU HAVEN'T BOUGHT THIS GAME YET! Why not? Is it because of the murdering potential parents thing? Don't worry about that, you're probably doing those kids a favor. Now they can grow up to be masked vigilantes that call you their nemesis. Sounds like a win win to me. You get awesome masked vigilantes in the world and a new foe to vanquish, BEING A BARBARIAN IS AWESOME.

Let's recap here, you platform in this game, you murder everything in this game and you pillage their greatest treasures. This is the most realistic and advanced barbarian simulation game I have ever played, just a little Tinier.
