The Dark King is about to release the Black Plague upon the kingdom. Find and distribute the antidote before everyone dies (or I guess you could be a sadist and just let them all die)

- Arrows (or A and D) to steer
- P to pause
- V to switch view
- Q to toggle quality

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

It's pretty good but need's some action.


It's good, but it seems that it's either too small to read or too big to see... :/




I thought the game was really really good overall.
I loved the animations throughout the game in story mode, and the music that brought everything together was great.

The only thing I didn't favour too much was the gameplay itself - I got slightly tired of it after a while. But I seemed to enjoy it more as the game progresses...

The idea and concept were very original(which is what brought me to the game), and I can tell you put LOADS of effort into this to make the game itself AND actually map out the plotline.
Unique game, with character I think many games today have lost.

EXCELLENT job. You deserve it, hope to see more of your work soon.

Cool game

It's a pretty good and addicting game. It's fun but the amount of obstacles that appeared in the 3rd level is a lot, which maked it tougher to complete
