Axe of Rage reviews

Zero Magazine issue 3 (1990): "Axe of Rage (a.k.a. Barbarian II) is a medieval quest come beat'em up. Choose your character from a Sonny look alike caveman or a Cher in a brass bra (Lordy! Ed.), then set off across four levels in search of Drax's Inner Sanctum. By the time you get to there, you'll have battled against a range of nasties whose idea of a friendly greeting is to bite your head off. The use of flip screen graphics spoils the combat somewhat. Fighting at the edge means fighting something you can't see, a mite tricky I'm sure you'll have to agree. Despite fairly detailed graphics Barbarian II is pretty standard beat'em up fare which doesn't quite sustain your interest for the duration."
