      Ultimately you can customize how tough the game is and no matter how rough it gets, Barbearian will look gorgeous throughout and will feel amazing whether you use a MFi controller or the touch controls. It feels completely different when the difficulty is adjusted so there is value in getting into the options and fiddling around. When people ask where the good premium games are, Barbearian is one I will point to, with gusto.

      If you're a fan of real-time combat games Barbearian is easy to recommend as it is certainly one of the better mobile titles in the genre. It looks great, is loaded with smashy goodness and visceral feel, and is a ton of fun to play. It offers plenty of challenge without nearing the rage-quit-and-never-look-at-the-game-again reaction some similar games seem to elicit. The ability to micromanage the difficulty and completely control the UI layout is just icing on the cake.

      A fast hack & slash game, easy-to-play, full of humor, a fluid and cartoon-like realization, hordes of enemies to explode, prisoners to deliver, treasures to plunder, bosses to destroy. There is everything in Barbearian for you to have fun exploding everything on your way!

      It’s ruthlessly hard, although you can adapt the difficulty level if it all gets too much, and it suffers from the usual issues with onscreen joystick and buttons, but its beautifully-rendered visuals and refined mechanics make it a joy to play from start to finish.

      The early part of the game might be a bit of a slog, but stick with it and you'll find a fantastic experience.

      This brawler has a ton of neat stuff going on in it, but the combat leaves something to be desired.
