This has been one of the best weeks of the last few months for the retro scene so far, as we've had so many games to see either for systems such as the C64 or ZX Spectrum, we've just been blown away. Now it's just got even better as F.L has now announced the release of the 1987 ZX Spectrum head chopping classic 'Barbarian' for the Sega Megadrive! The same developer behind the open source clones of the Amstrad CPC, C64, ZX Spectrum, Atari ST and many others, has now released this version as a rom file which works on a real sega genesis/megadrive, everdrive, and emulators!
It may not be the amazing Amiga version with the best detail, but that doesn't mean this is any less enjoyable. As Barbarian on any system was so much fun, you'd spend hours twirling and rolling around screaming like a mad man, just to chop your opponents head clean off! Now thanks to F.L you can download this and all the other versions right now and re-live those gory memories.
