    First of all this game is amazing and I’m having tons of fun. The atmosphere and tidbits of flavor everywhere are on point.

    That being said, I’m 5-6 hours in and feeling stuck. I’m 4 bosses in and only have one open portal (they come from the stars) which seems endless/suicide but makes a ton of money chaining 999+ combos. Also there is nothing to spend money on at this point, all shops seem out of stock and seems maxed at 72 followers.

    Maybe I just need to power thru on this level but its a strange change of pace

    It is rather odd given the way the game plays up to this point. But yes, you must power through this level. There are two others that you must also complete to unlock the final boss. The other two are easier. Best of luck. :)

    I’m up against the mega skull but keep getting killed. I can’t figure out what those crosses are for, anyone care to help me out with some strategy tips?

    Thanks! I managed to beat this and then the game! I wish I could keep going and amass a bigger army/keep upgrading my units, axe, etc. but no regrets!

    The crosses/pluses replenish your mana used for summoning your troops.
    I couldn't beat the skull until I figured that out. At first I thought they were health potions that were bugged.

    Keep running around, grabbing the pluses and summoning your minions to fight the head while taking out the skull generation crystals. Never stop moving to avoid the skull landing on your head.

    It's a bit too early to tell, it hasn't exactly been a huge success so I haven't really thought about the future much. Would be really fun to do some more end game style content, but we'll see.

    That's a real shame, one of the better games of the year, highly recommended to anyone on the fence.

    Completed the game after 12:30 hours with a 71% completion... I wonder what I'm missing - I think I rescued all the minions (and bought the max as well). I only completed one Cosmic Challenge so not sure if that's the missing % as it's still quite far from the 100% mark. I think I also bought all the upgrades and weapons. Hmmm. Gimblll: Feel free to spoil us with a spoiler alert to your post!

    Anyway, this game is simply awesome! An easy 5 out of 5. I totally enjoyed it! I played on the default difficulty and I think it's all just tuned perfectly. The boss battles were tough but never unfair and never frustrating. The regular battles were epic, especially at the later stages when you've assembled a decent army. People who complain on lack of attack moves are just missing the point - the game is about enemy variety which is vast, and varied level layouts, and then the best way to tactically beat whatever is thrown at you. Loved it. Personally this is my favorite game of the year on any platform! (Yeah, I liked it more than God of War with its boring bell and vine puzzles etc.) This is non stop chaotic action that just gets better and better as more enemies are introduced and your army grows. It's a shame it's not getting more articles from game sites, attention it deserves.

    The energy is used to summon your minions to help you in battle. :)

    Right? I cant understand why no one is talking about this game. It really is quite good and there is nothing like it on the app store.... I mean, 2d mass murder as a bear skin wearing barbarian?! Whats not to like?! I wish TA would give it a review.

    Well there are a few things you need to do. Start with completing all the Master Classes. Then there's a few secrets in the meta world. ;)

    Thank you so much! (And everybody else posting messages like this!) Even though it's pretty clear by now that it's not going to be financially succesful, I'm so glad there are people having fun with it! Makes it all worth it. :)

    I'm just really bad at PR I guess. I was too wondering why TA hasn't given it a review. They did give it that Game of The Week thing though and it's been #1 on the "Hot Games" list for a while (I have no idea what that means).

    This game is amazing! Makes me sad too that it’s not getting more attention.

    That simply means that the game is getting a lot of posts in the TA forum.

    I’m downloading Barbearian as I type. It looks like a really fun game.
