    I’d like to know this as well. I’ll be sad if it isn’t.

    If you find it in the US App Store by search, it's already been released. Surprising!

    Developer here. All right, it seems it's out. Have fun!

    About iPhone X: Yes, if "optimized for iPhoneX" means that it uses the full screen, then yes it uses the full screen. I probably should've uploaded a separate set of screenshots for iPhoneX and didn't realize it and that's why the screenshots show it as non-full screen.

    Let me know what you think and have fun!

    been playing this for a bit and i really like it. the graphics are amazing and the combat is fun but it’s really hard to play on iphone x. the joystick is like so close to the corner of the screen and it’s hard to move correctly.

    Have you tried the control options? You can move the controls wherever you like. Or is there some other problem I don't understand?

    I’m having MAJOR issues with the site and trying to post, but if anyone sees this, Barbearian is pedigree hack ‘n’ slash good fun from an ace developer. You won’t find any triple currencies, coin doublers, advertisements, or any of the other traditional mobile gaming insults hidden beneath the surface. My 40+ hours beta testing the game are a guarantee that your money will be well spent. Get it. Now.

    Finally got this at midnight. Really good ! Very polished and a lot of fun so far. Some of the text in the tutorial was quite tiny to read when it could have been larger but not a huge issue (EDIT - you can change the size in the settings)

    Controls are great, graphics excellent, cant wait to get to later levels. Very impressed, well worth it. Another quality AAA game

    Is this more of a linear experience or is there incentive to replay it after you beat it? (Besides the incentive of it looking awesome)

    Awesome game, loving it! Brings back memories of playing Gauntlet.

    My only concern is I'm 10% complete after ~30 minutes. I'd like the experience to last a long time.
    Do later levels get longer?

    1. Any chance of additional content/missions/etc in the near future? :)

    2. Is there any way to change troop type? For example if I have a 50/50 split of knights & archers and decide I want 75/25 is there any way to convert unit types?

    3. There are 2 box drops, 1 gives a temp shield, what is the other one for? I skipped through the explanation by accident.

    It's pretty linear, with some optional content. There's no New Game+ or any other incentives for playing again, but I think the gameplay itself survives repeat plays.

    iCloud support is a possibility, but I can't promise anything soon.

    Yes, the later levels get longer. But if you're a top player breezing through it I don't know how long I can promise it'll last. :)

    1. Depends on how well it sells, I've pretty much given my all for this version so I haven't planned much for the future yet. :)

    2. No there's not (for various reasons).

    3. There's three at the beginning, they're speed (green), shield (blue) and ball of doom (pink).

    Been playing as much as I can while working ;)

    20 minutes in and I’m so glad I grabbed this, though I was planning on it anyway. The graphics are so beautiful and the gameplay is easy to learn. Nice pacing on the tutorial levels helps keep things moving along at an easily digestible rate. Kimmo L makes really good games - Trigonarium, Drift’nDrive, etc.

    I found out you can pause the game by touching in the upper portion of the screen. Thought that might help someone. I’ve had to use it to quit the game so I could get back to work a couple times now. Wondering when the game auto saves and if there’s a visual indicator to let you know. Thanks for creating this gem, @gimblll =)

    Yeah love the graphic style. I just want to 'attack' every tree/item on screen, most games i want to just get from A to B but i'm loving this so much i'm taking my time with it and destroying everything.

    Games like this make me LOVE my phone even more ! Bargain at the price. Nice to see a great premier game rather than the usual freemium 28 currencies type of game

    Hope the majority support this and buy buy buy

    Mr Dev - Please dont do a price drop for a while, there will be people waiting to save a 'dollar' or so but hopefully you can keep it at this price

    Thanks! There's no visual indicator. The game saves when you jump between levels or when you quit through the menu. If you quit the app without quiting through the menu, you will respawn to the beginning of the level you were in.

    I can promise there will be no iOS sales at least for a long time. In fact, for example the prices of Drift'n'Drive and Trigonarium have only increased throughout the years, never lowered.
