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

Not bad, but not exactly great

When you first start this up, it's all right, but a few things start to bug me as the game goes on. The first being that when you lose, you have to start all over again! That's not good. My second disappointment came around on the Survival mode. I played it twice, beating my personal best the second time, and yet on both games it says "Oh, you couldn't even beat your personal best!" Correct me if I'm wrong, but I just did that! Needs tweaking in these places, but if these faults get sorted out, this could have potential.

Very Good

I praise you. It is a long game, but very much worth it.. you should shorten those long travelling scenes.. The cinematics are good, and I am impressed. This should be on the front page.

well isnt this a new idea on newgrounds ^_^. graphics were really good(especially in cinematics!) storyline was awsome for an ng game, it was a long game, gameplay itself was a bit dull and slightly repetitive but otherwise good job.
