Barbarian II

Barbarian & Barbarian II were early computer combat games. Pretty basic forward/backward, attack #1, attack #2, jump, roll... EGA graphics... Internal speaker sound...

The images below were from cover and promo pics for Barbarian II. Maria Whittaker is the female model and a gladiator, "Wolf" from the British version of American Gladiators is the male model. Both are British. Not sure if these are a British only or not.




Just added the Commodore cover art, and some additional pics.

Oh my god... Those posters are so god-awfully "80's fantasy" that it's embarrassing. Still, I remember that game and it ROCKED!

Who knew they had Aquanet in the Hyborean age?

Pretty sure they are the real thing. See the post at my other blog here.

Huh, I played these games (I & II) on C-64 in second half of 80's. Nostalgia mode on. :)
