About Batbarian: Testament of the Primordials

About this game

*Crash* ...That was the sound of you landing face first in an abyss filled with monsters, traps, and eldritch secrets. But hey, it's ok barbarian, you are not alone: Pip, your best friend—and mysteriously luminous bat—is with you. And it's only by truly working together that you'll be able to solve the abyss' puzzles, fight off its hungry denizens, discover its true purpose and maybe -just maybe- make it out alive with the secrets of the primordials.

Key Features

  • Gain new skills for your barbarian and elemental powers for Pip, the (magic) bat!
  • A narrative-driven metroidvania with dialogue choices and plenty of humor and snark.
  • Big numbers! 400+ rooms, 20+ hours of evolving gameplay, 10+ bosses, 60+ minutes of music and almost 30,000 words of text that a barbarian would never bother to read!
  • Puzzles.
  • A multitude of assists available to tailor the difficulty to your needs, like slow motion, regen, extra loot & stats!
  • RPG elements with a level-up minigame.
  • Contains more fruit throwing than probably any other game.
  • Companions that join you in your quest and help you out in fights.
  • Multiple endings based on your choices and actions.
  • The thrown fruit are NOT wasted, they are eaten by the bat (who is magic).
  • A ton of secrets and hidden loot just about everywhere.
  • The (magic) bat has a whopping FIVE different squeaking sounds!
  • Fewer repetitive jokes than this description has.

A controller is recommended for an optimal experience.

God is a Geek

75 / 100
"Ultimately, while Batbarian may not blow your mind, it’ll offer the odd chuckle, and mechanics just robust enough to keep you coming back."

KeenGamer

85 / 100
"Batbarian was a delightful trip through the deep dark abyss. A huge effort that could have had a lot more problems, it stuck the landing beautifully. With obvious influence...

PC Invasion

85 / 100
"A wonderfully crafted Metroidvania that should have genre fans plenty excited. It's blending of combat, platforming, and puzzling keeps the gameplay fresh and varied throughout...

It's not the best at anything, but it makes up for it with its charm. The humour in its dialogs, the cartoony presentation, the clever puzzles, the challenging difficulty, the rewarding exploration... It all makes for a better game than the sum of its parts. It loses some of its luster in the latter levels, where difficulty spikes out of control, exploration doesn't feel as rewarding and level design takes a bit of a dive. It never reaches the heights of the games it pays reverence to, but it's a very good game nonetheless.

Batbarian did not vibe with me despite is many pros, sadly. The music is good, as are the dialogues and humor, i like the combination with the puzzles. At first the platformer parts work, the bat mechanic is very fun but eventually, wgen levels get harder, the platforming feels worse and worse and the different bats are more and more frustrating to handle. Mayne the is just generally too hard for me but i eventually quit and didn't finish it.
