Action   Beat em-up

A marked improvement over the original, Barbarian 2 features vibrant EGA graphics (although the drawn characters still move like broken marionettes), and the ability to play as either the Barbarian or the Princess (no doubt the same one he rescued in Barbarian 1). The evil sorcerer Drax is back, and this time you must fight through 3 locales, each arranged as a tricky *maze* with 28 rooms, all of which are populated by all manners of nasties. Perhaps the best thing about the game is the fact that each monster you will faced must be disposed of in *different ways* which you must find through trial and error and observation. The devious maze, however, truly distracts from the game, and there's not enough fighting or variety to distinguish the game from zillions of other slug-fests that have come before.
