REQUIRES FLASH PLAYER 8
This game has been a beast to build... please read all these notes for full info

Main game engine is pseudo-3D, which is quite CPU-intensive, so if it shows lag, try switching to medium quality (use Q). This is also the reason that the graphics are quite simple: the game (or rather, the average PC) simply can't handle complex graphics in a 3D engine.
Game has two modes - STORY (hard and easy have different endings), and SURVIVAL (online 500-place scoreboard, bonus pick-ups)
Many thanks to Ani-x for the animations and the majority of graphics, to Dan for the game concept, and to the various AP musicians for the audio

This game was supposed to have been submitted before the end of Feb, so it's a week late - I underestimated the amount of time required to insert cutscenes and subtitles. I'm quite happy with it, though, hopefully it was worth the delay. I'll warn you now, hard mode is HARD

Thanks for playing
Cheers

Good game, but not better than what I've seen.

Okay, Full Review.

Graphics: 6
What I came to expect from AG, very good, but I've seen a little better from you.

Style(Gameplay):7
Very Challenging, I have not beat it yet on Hard Mode, I have just a couple of complaints, not too many.
1: I'm not going to say theree were too many bstacles, it's just that, in the Town level, there were way too many large groups of them, I lost 3-4 vials each time I played it. (BOth Easy and Hard) So, there was a bit of difficulty you might be able to tone down there.
2:The Gold King or whatever's level was pretty easy, it might've been on Easy mode, but I expected a little more than 'repeat of Escape level with gold shading', I'm not cussing you out, it's just that I've expected originallity on each level, and I suppose that's my fault.

Sound: Very well done, only thing I might have here is to put in a longer tune for the level instead of reppeating the same short tune over. I liked how each level had a different tune, though, and it was still very cool.

Violence:1
Only reason I gave a 1 here is because of the whole 'blood filter' that occured when you hit something.

Interactivity:10
It's a fast-paced game that requires a ton of moving, nothing bad here.

Humor:1
This was just me, but the end of the beginning cutscene made me chuckle. Other than that, not much humor, mostly dead serious.

Overall: 8
Quite a good game, but like I've said, I've seen better than this from AG, but that's me, takke this review how you will.

A solid game.

A solid game with good graphics and tight controls. The story mode is well done and the game feels like a mini game you would play on a console rpg.

It seems an old-movie middle-age

well this is not bad but I think the graphics are awfully kitsch

fun to play but not for long

I thought it was fun but a little hard. even on easy its pretty hard to beat, because sometimes you just cant get around the obstacles. theres often a wall of houses i.e. that goes from left to right and you cant get away.but it was a good game try it

Re-reviewing...(frabjanks under a different alias)

Now that I've played it a few more times, I take back what I said about the gameplay not being that interesting. Maybe I just expected more from it after seeing/hearing the graphics and sound. ^.^ Very well done. The theme and story are appealing -- and I must know where that music comes from!
