Barbarian is a sword-wielding fighting game initially released in 1987. The evil sorcerer Drax has captured Princess Mariana and will only release her if a champion from the Jewelled City can defeat his guardians.
To complete the game, players must dual numerous opponents. The game includes a variety of sword attacks, including the ability to behead enemies. As well as this, players can also perform rolls, spin attacks, and kicks. If players are successful in defeating an enemy, a goblin will appear and drag the body away.
