Barbarian - 1987

Who remembers Barbarian? I obtained this game in... 1993? By then it was already an old game (published in 1987), however my computer at the time only had a 4 colour CGA card, so my game choices were limited.

See the row of buttons down the bottom? If I recall correctly, the player had to select the action button required, then press the fire button to execute the action. This made the game very hard. I never finished it. In fact I gave up after a few days.

I remember restarting many times, trying to get the bow (pictured above) as it seemed to make the game a little more tolerable. Unfortunately, failure was rewarded by a restart, which just added to the frustration.
