Gaming has advanced so far, so rapidly over the past 30 years that it’s difficult to find a game that contains something truly, completely, original. Don’t get excited, Bardbarian isn’t one of those games. What this mobile and PC title does well, however, is take a lot of tried and tested mechanics and blend them into something unusual. That can often be just as effective as something totally new, there are too many examples of that reality. Bardbarian isn’t one of those either, unfortunately, but it’s an ample effort.
