Choose between a diverse range of warrior gods to play as. Then match them up with weapons and items to suit your play style. Don’t worry, you’ll die a fair amount, so there will be plenty of chances to try new ways of playing.
As you venture through the vast and varied environments across Hyperboria such as the sands of Koth, the Darkwood or the icy world of Vanaheim.

In Conan Chop Chop each land you explore will be filled with a wide variety of dangerous creatures who want nothing more than ensure you don’t overstay your welcome.
Take on quests to gain gold, use that gold to buy weapons, use those weapons to bash in the skulls on your enemies, defeat those enemies to get to the treasure. Then rinse and repeat to your heart’s content. Boasting an insane sounding 14 trillion different weapons, armor and charm combinations, Conan Chop Chop should have enough variation to keep you wanting to play the game. With everything from rakes to bastard swords up for grabs, you’re never going to be short on options to experiment with.
However, if 14 trillion combos doesn’t sound like enough, how about unlocking new combo moves like the 360 spin attack or dash attack to name just a few? As you progress further through Conan Chop Chop you’ll unlock new skills enabling new ways to play and help you strike down your enemies.
