Barbarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel Video

2011-07-10 13:35:08 by Gurt

A year back or so I made a video where I play Barbarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel - the whole game. I completed it in about an hour and recorded it all. Then I speeded it up and it turned into a video that have been laying around ever since. So here's a video of me playing BO:SoS.

Looking back at the game today there's so much I would have done differently in the code. I still enjoy playing it though.

Superfighters will soon be ready for testing but for now check out Johan Hjärpe's postfor more information and an early gameplay video. Much have changed since that video too :)

A test version (beta) of Superfighters should be ready soon enough.

Don't worry.

johanhjarpe and I, we're still working on our next flash-game. Shouldn't be long untill we start with the AI. But we have much other stuff to do when studying.

I won't give much away but it's so much fun playing against eachother on the same computer.

I found some old pictures from the developement of Barbarian Onslaught: The Secret of Steel.
Hazel-grouse did an awsome job when he designed this game and here's a sketch over the crows together with a screenshot from the finished game. Might be fun to watch.

What's next?

Hazel-grouse and I, we're currently working on a new game. Actually it's an improved version of a game we've made in the past but that we never uploaded because of bugs, glitches and errors. This improved version of the game will use the Box2D engine.

More to come...

Barbarian Onslaught - The Secret of Steel UPDATE

2010-01-23 10:59:21 by Gurt

See entry #2 for a walkthrough of the game.

Barbarian Onslaught - The Secret of Steel is now updated to a newer version. This update includes few bug fixes and gameplay tweaks. You can now drop enemies that you have picked up by pressing the down key. This is already in the Author Comments.

To be able to play this updated version you have to reload BO:Secret of Steel. You'll be sure you're playing the updated version if you see the dark-gray text "v1.1" in the bottom-right corner of the loading screen (Dark-Gray Text, might be hard to see!).

You will be able to continue playing from your old game-progress.

What I can't say is how you should be able to reload BO:Secret of Steel without removing your internet-history and your old game-progress in the process. =(

To be able to kill enemies efficiently, you need to combine all those actions in the right way. It's far from enough to just smash the spacebar.
