Barbarian (?)
This is a long shot, but what the heck.. First time I saw an Amiga in a shop, a game was loaded. It was a left-to-right scrolling game. The character looked like the Shadows of the Beast's hero, IIRC. The controls (walk, run, hit etc.) were displayed at the bottom of the screen and you used the mouse to select them. I think it was called Barbarian. I'd love to see it again for nostalgia's sake. Does it ring any bells?

Wow..thanks Walker, that's the one! Does anyone know where I can get it from?

And how do you get it to work >_< Either my version is knackered or you need to do something special.

The one-on-one Barbarian is 10 times better.

Depending on wether you have someone to go one-on-one against or not.

I always preferred the C64 version than the Amiga one!

Atari ST version was the Daddy!

Star Wars, Super Sprint and BARBARIAN (Palace) were the first 16 bit titles I owned on a good old Atari ST! (well copied ;) )

I searched for the game and I found it at Planet Emulation.. however it's described as "Barbarian II 1991 Psygnosis". The year can't be right, can it? I'm positive I saw it in 1987, and that's the date on the screenshot above as well. Is it a later release?

Walker 06 August 2002 12:40

It's listed as "Barbarian (1987)(Psygnosis)[cr Major Rom]" at PlanetEmu.

The 1991 release is the sequel.

Duh! Thanks for stating the bloody obvious.
