Barbearian is a hack'n'slash with a lot of character. While the visual style didn't really resonate with me, it's easy to look past that while you're neck deep in enemies and bouncing along to the amazing soundtrack the game has to offer.

With over 100 levels to battle through, plenty of loot to collect, numerous bosses to take down and even some prisoners to rescue, Barbearian will keep even the most seasoned of adventurers very busy and highly entertained for quite some time. Besides, who doesn't like hacking at sword-wielding skeletons?

Underneath the hack-and-slash simplicity in sending troops flying with a swing of your axe is robust strategizing and improvising on the fly when your best laid plans crumble. The mystery inherent in its story coupled with the bright and neat visual style adds an additional dimension to the experience. I can wholeheartedly recommend you add this to your Switch catalog.
