** Latest note... sadly Hector has been silenced. The pandora bot I was using for the prisoner chat has been exhausted and no longer responds. Sorry about that... it's hard coded into the game. Will try and replace it eventually...*

"Death Row" is basically a virtual pet "tamagotchi" equivalent, except your pet is a prisoner on death row. You have to try and reform him, get him healthy and improve his condition before he faces the electric chair.

Lots of little secrets and ways to help your prisoner it's not a huge game by any means but have some fun with it - the prisoner's AI results in some pretty random things happening.

To win the game you have to discover all 8 pieces of hidden evidence and email the governor for a pardon.

A few people have been asking about the artwork for the game - the icons , minigames and interface are mine, the wonderful character design and background artwork are done by my erstwhile colleague Tony Lowe , who also did the background arenas for Swords & Sandals II and is helping me with Swords & Sandals III as we speak. Brilliant art, Tone!

Cheers Oliver


That prison break reference tho hahaha! epic game!

This is a great game. Love it so much. great classic and just fun in general. The only problem I have with this game: It seems very difficult to get the reform bar up. Maybe that's just me and me being stupid but I don't know

i've played this game so many times, since i was a kid even, and only just now beat it. eight years later.

regardless of the fact that i am a dumbass - great game. i wish there was more of a story to the ending - even just a lil flash of hector thanking you or smiling or waving - and it sucks that the chatbot died. it's a great game.

if this game got uploaded on 2008, when did the chat interact break? i hope it gets mended. (mended means: fixed)

Used to love this game when i was younger... Still a great game 5 Stars for sure ! I Wish it had a sleeping button so i didnt havnt to wait for him to get completely tired... If your still active on this site.. Think you could make a sequel?

Anyone who needs help , what you gotta do is

Make him try out each job till you find his 'Favorite' that will make him work faster meaning more money ! Also be sure to Search for the notes.. In order to find the notes you need to buy furniture such as the desk, the plant and the trash bin those have notes in them but im not gonna give all the clues away !
