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

Great game!

I suppose my only complaint is that I had to restart the whole story-mode game when I died. Still haven't completed it since I had to take a break out of frustration, but that's okay.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Good.. but Irritating

I would enjoy this more if it wasn't for the fact that it wouldn't let me add myself to the scoreboards, and even when I beat my old high scores, the darned thing keeps telling me how horrible I have done because my "best score" always grows AS I get a higher one. A little bit of a runon, but cmon, I get a score of 4679, enough for 4th or 5th place, and can't submit and sign it?

9/10 if you can fix this and let me actually get onto the scoreboards.

The gameplay was dull, however the story blended nicely with it and managed to make it immersive enough for me to finish. Good job!
