If someone was to search for animated series with humour fine enough to grab even adult’s attention, one would stumble upon Dave the Barbarian. Dave’s flamboyant character is surely to be sympathetic. But how would you describe a barbarian? Bearded, barely clothed, armed with a prehistoric blunt weapon and wrecking havoc on anything that moves towards him? While fellow barbarians burn down villages and occupy land, Dave would rather cook dinner singing pop songs. And if Candy has left cheese with some mould on the kitchen again Dave the Barbarian yells like a little girl! Underneath the pumped up muscles and raw force, Dave is soft like butter. He cries, he is afraid of his own sword but Dave the Barbarian games make the character stand up to his name.
Speaking of swords, indeed Dave the Barbarian is so foolishly afraid, that even his talking sword gives him the fright. Her name is Lula and her ranting at Dave for making silly mistakes is really what scares barbarian the most. Otherwise Lula is a loyal companion, its sharp steel ready to slay anything from muffins to monsters. Impatient to get into the action, Lula is capable of shooting lightning from its tip. Having Lula would make Dave the Barbarian a real danger for evil, only if he knew how to properly handle a sword. Dave the Barbarian games set you a test for your attention in “Operation Rescue Candy”. Think you can guess Lula’s sarcastic face from other characters?
The Barbarian family left Dave’s sister Candy in charge of the kingdom. Candy, however, doesn’t seem to care about the future of her parents` kingdom. She would rather have her nails done and go out for a party than caring for the kingdom. What Candy really boasts with is her martial art skills. She can punch as fast as one bats an eye. Usually when she gets involved in solving problems, she solves them very quickly and applies brute force. Then she goes back to polishing her nails.
Unlike Dave and Candy, Fang – their youngest sibling – is the most barbaric from the family. Although she would deny it, Fang takes pleasure in destroying things than actually facing issues. She appears to be so crazy, that she is confused with a monkey. Just never tell Fang that.
Games featuring Dave the Barbarian

Help Dave collect all items, while avoiding being spotted by Silly Piggy and his orcs. Beware not to collect the statue of the red orc, for it will trigger orc’s aggression.
Every family has to eat, but in Dave’s family the food kept piling. Faffy, being an insane gourmand himself, has agreed to help. Move Faffy around and try to catch the food that Dave throws out. Be careful, however, for Faffy’s energy bar depletes upon consuming garbage food.
