BARBARIAN! The Video Game!

I totally remember playing this game back in the day at my best friend's house during the Summer of '87. We thought the game totally ruled back then. Fellow blogger, Darious Whiteplume, posted some scans of the box art on his Tumblr, complete with a busty '80s style mega-hottie and it completely took me back in time. I just had to repost these here!

Somebody has to know where I can download the abandonware for this!

I so remember this crazy game it's... well, crazy. :)

Wrote an article a month or so back on it (http://www.strangekidsclub.com/?p=3695), but I couldn't find a Emu of it anywhere. I also don't remember the buxom babes. Oh why don't I remember the buxom babes?!

Here you go. I'm not sure if this game is a remake of the original Barbarian game but it's also called Barbarian. In the game credits, it says the original concept for the game is from Palace Software 1987. It's a flash game you can play online.
