Barbarian The Duel is a videogame for MSX2 computers with 128KBytes VRAM based on the successful ‘Barbarian the Ultimate Warrior’ by Palace Software.
This game is a shortened version of the full game ‘Barbarian The Arcomage’s Downfall’
Story and game background
Thara and Bravos must get ready to face the evil Arcomage, who devastated the Land of Shrikar several years ago.
They know it’s no easy task because their first real enemy will be the wicked Dim Knight.
Fulfill their destiny, gather your resources and join the battle!
Display your power, authority and skills fighting against the Dim Knight or against another human player…
The game uses a sprite painting algorithm similar to the one in the Pointless Fighting game.
The OPLL sound chip (MSX-MUSIC) will be used if found. In another case, the PSG standard is used.
Optionally, if you have an OPL4 expansion (Moonsound or clone), voices will sound during battles.
