Barbarian beheadings

Off with his head!

It's a case of "good news, bad news" for those of you awaiting the arrival of Barbarian on the GameBoy Advance. First the bad news - the game has slipped another month, this time to October. Now the good news - the game will include a cheat mode allowing you to slice your opponent's head clean off. Fans of the old 8-bit sword fighting game of the same name will no doubt be pleased, but of course the real question is whether the famous goblin will be putting in a guest appearance to clear away the severed head in his own individual manner when this happens. We can but hope. Related Feature - Barbarian GBA screenshots
