You play as Brad the barbarian, who is awoken to the sounds of his town under siege. Today is different though; Brad has grown tired of fighting all the time. The usual grind for XP has grown dull, and he has decided to pursue his dreams of making music instead of shedding blood.

What is Bardbarian?
Bardbarian is a game! A game we've been lovingly working on for far too long and are ready to unleash on Steam with (hopefully) some love from the Greenlight Community.

What genre is the game?
It is a mixture of Tower Defense, RPG & RTS with some 'Shmup and Snake elements.

What's the Story?
You play as Brad the barbarian, who is awoken to the sounds of his town under siege. Today is different though; Brad has grown tired of fighting all the time. The usual grind for XP has grown dull, and he has decided to pursue his dreams of making music instead of shedding blood. Fashioning a lute out of an old axe, he steps out to save his town in the most bizarre of ways.

What's Gameplay like?
Move Brad around the battlefield and dodge incoming enemy attacks and projectiles. Brad is constantly playing his axe-lute and generating notes, standing still will cause him to "jam" and generate notes even faster. These notes act as your in-game resource; you can spend them to perform solos to summon units to follow and fight for you, as well as solos to boost their performance.

Navigate your party through the hordes of enemies, dodging and attacking, preventing them from destroying your town's prized decorative crystal. Survive waves to progress, collect loot, and unlock new units. Upon death you are able to visit the town shop in order to upgrade Brad, the town and your followers, in hopes to make it further next time.

Bardbarian è un tower-defense rispettabile. Nonostante sia un porting da mobile, i controlli sono ottimizzati bene, sia tastiera che joypad. Competitivo, ma è soprattutto arduo, sembrerebbe facile... ma non è tutto oro quello che luccica. Infatti il gioco è impegnativo al massimo, e molte volte ti costringerà a rifare tutto dall'inizio, ma non temere: questo è il modo migliore per ottenere più soldi per potenziare tutto, TUTTO. La grafica "fumettosa" inoltre è fighissima, e (giustamente) non richiede troppo, anzi... Paragonandola ad altri titoli del genere indie, potrei dire niente in fatto di risorse.

Lo consiglio si, ma fossi in voi aspetterei qualche offerta.

Simpaticissimo tower defense proveniente dal mercato touch/mobile (ma opportunamente "modificato" e migliorato per questa versione), Bardbarian è una sorpresa: impegnativo, graficamente molto buono, con ottimi controlli, si gioca in modo veloce scegliendo via via sempre più seguaci che dovremo adeguatamente pimpare con la musica (metal) del nostro liuto. Numerose le unità. le skills e le upgrades sbloccabili con i soldi guadagnati sul campo.
L'elemento centrale del gameplay sono i nostri spostamenti: il gruppo infatti ci seguirà in modo credibile e lo schivare un colpo con il bardo non significherà per forza schivarlo anche con gli altri del gruppo e gli spazi diventeranno presto molto stretti, pieni di proiettili persistenti (qui l'omaggio dei devs agli shumps è palese).
Modalità storia discretamente longeva, survival e modalità "fugone".
Un piccolo gioco che funziona alla perfezione, immediato e metallaro.

Yeah this game is pretty rad. I picked it up in a bundle and really recommend it, even at full price RRP it's pretty worth it. As far as tower defence games go, its way up there on the list and deservedly so. Great music, funny gameplay and decent upgrade system with loads of unlocks. Well worth a blast if it's in your library. Controller recommended.

Bardbarian is one of these games I went into "just to try", and find myself returning to now quite regularly. It has quite an original concept, being a tower defense with more than a twist. There is a central point to defend, and there are enemies coming in to attack, ever more, ever more strong. So far, so good.
But. The towers to defend your stronghold are not static, but are attached as party-members to the Bard you can steer around the battlefield, destroying enemies "on the fly" as it were. You do not attack yourself, but one can enhance the attacks of your party-members by playing short guitar-riffs, played free by collecting notes. Extra attack, speed, defence and a short freeze of the enemies come in handy as the waves of enemies get stronger. As usual, units and your Bard himself can be upgraded, for this one needs the coins the enemies drop in abundance.
In order to succeed, fast reactions and speedy thinking are necesarry. I found it difficult at first to keep an overview of the battlefield, as several issues need attention: where are the enemies coming in at thier strongest, which buffs are needed, did any of my units die so I have to summon a new one, is my stronghold still going strong, .... But after a while I got used to it and enjoyed running all over the place, with my little but brave party. Playing it with an Xbox 360-controller certainly helps and feels most natural.

Enemies get quite strong before halfway in the game, and so sustaining the 20 waves is no easy task. Every 5 levels there is a boss, but for the most part enemies do not change that much during the game. Still, with an extra "free run" mode (try to get as far as you can dodging the enemies) and with a "survival mode", one can come back to this game again and again. As can be expected nowadays, there are Steam trading cards and some inviting achievements, which really help to appreciate the game to the full. No classic, but still very enjoyable. Don't hesitate to buy this, especially when it's on sale or in a bundle.

Gameplay: 20/30
Graphics: 12/20
Sound: 9/10 (the combination of the sound-track and the guitar riffs works admirably well)
Longelivety: 14/20 (thanks to the extra modes, and to an extra difficulty level)
Technical & stability: 9/10
Personal rating: 7/10

Overall: 71/100
