Mini Review: Bardbarian




This is a 2D defense game where you hire minions to follow you around and kill things on your behalf. I completed it in one sitting; it’s got great animations, some original mechanics and nice humour. The upgrades system works well & the difficulty curve is spot on - except for perhaps the last boss which took inordinately longer than everything else. Once I’d maxed out my wizards it was just a case of not getting one-shot by the Beholders for the last 3 waves of the game. Not sure how I would have completed it without their sniper knockback! Only other criticism is the music; it’s good - but only one 30 second clip on a loop got old really quickly considering the game is about 5 hours long.

Status: Completed in 6 hours
