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 seems an old-movie middle-age

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


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

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!

Denvish responds:

All music was from NG Audio Portal artists, rollover the CREDITS button on the title screen, and then click on any one of the circular buttons at the bottom to open their page in the browser

boring, too many obstacles, and not worth playing

Denvish responds:

Can't win. If it had less obstacles, I'd have loads of reviews from people saying it was too easy

Denvish responds:

Why don't you score it based on the actual game then///?
