BARBEARIAN

Macworld (USA) - - Ioscentral | 6 Great Ios Games - go.mac­world.com/bear

The cam­era in Barbearian ($8.99) stays zoomed out so far that I ini­tially thought this was a game about a ticked-off teddy bear un­leash­ing hell with a dou­ble-bladed axe. (And I would have loved that game.) Alas, it’s just a reg­u­lar ol’ bearskin-clad bar­bar­ian who’s been trans­ported to a mys­te­ri­ous new world—a world that’ll soon be sparsely pop­u­lated, if he has any say in it. It’s glo­ri­ously cathar­tic, and sat­is­fy­ingly chal­leng­ing on all dif­fi­culty lev­els. He swings his axe, and 10 skele­tons fall. He swings again, and down go an­other 20! This hack-and-slash orgy is the core of Barbearian, and it’s a sur­pris­ingly good fit for mo­bile.
