Barbarian Plus - Head chopping classic enhanced is finally here for the Amiga!



Well this came as a complete surprise considering we were told it wasn't going to be released until the weekend, but it looks as if the team behind ' Barbarian Plus ' have finally released it through Facebook! - Mirror in article

This is brilliant. Amazing work by the programmers.

Pared-down 1mb A500 version on the cards?

To be a game made in Amos is not bad, it works well also from Workbench with any OS and on high-resolution screens. As you can see from the screenshot I ran BarbarianPlus on WinuUAE with dual Monitor RTG + PAL

You can easily beat all standard opponents by holding down FIRE+JOYDOWN. One of the opponents is a nice surprise guest

I can't figure out how to beat the wizard in the final fight though - he teleports to the other side of the arena as soon as I get close to him. Somehow I managed to 'hit' him two times, but I've got no idea how.

The game looks great but I've tried to install it using both the adf files through "dikimage" and real floppies but once clicked on the installer script on disk 6 I see a screen (Barbarian + Hard Drive Installer) with two options:
- Install
- Exit

I select install and press "Enter" (or space or any other key) but nothing happens. I can't select "Exit" neither. The "Enter" KEY just doesn't work.

Does this happen only to me?

The installer work, try using the "numeric keypad"
However you can install everything by hand just copy all the data of the 6 floppy in a folder

I confirm, joystick works fine.

Since I was supposed to write the installation path I thought that I could use just the keyboard.

Thanks for the help.

@AMIGASYSTEM
Thanks for the hint but the "numeric keypad" doesn't seem to work. In any case I've solved my issue.

Awesome game in my opinion it is great remake in style of Giana Sister, definitely like new graphics and animations, game got lot of charm. Require only little practice to learn how to control Your fighter

Never mind, I figured it out [SPOILER ALERT]: You have to make him teleport into his own magic weaponry.

AWESOME GAME!
Great!
I've found a small mistake, though, the game isn't "1 player only" but it is "1 or 2, Simultaneous"

Gameplay issue: keep pressed down + fire = easily reach the last stage against Drax.
AI must be improved (rolling or blocking to avoid lower hits).
Noticed also a bug in the animations: the AI in the case above sometimes kicks while jumping

Would be also great keys redefinition for PLY1 and PLY2

Also corner an enemy and up left fire. No contest.

The dragon down fire. No contest.

Final boss slide under fireball attack and repeat.

Game finished in 5minutes maxc


I said it before and I'll say it again way to easy.
