Fan Service : Maria Whittaker
It is a violent game which started a polemic in its time due to violence and sex.
Boobs from a certain Maria Whittaker were not stranger to this.
Of course it was a complete success and the game is remembered as one of the best of its genre and era.
Largely inspired from Conan the Babarian
Barbarian 2 ( Cartridge ) : also known as Barbarian : Dungeon of Drax.
Barbarian III actually went Vaporware.
Karatian and other mods were produced featuring Barbarian's gameplay or graphics, with mostly extra backgrounds.

It seems clear that the CPC version was certainly the best 8 bit version concerning Graphics.
