** 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!

Don't understand the gamemechanics very well, but has an interesting core


Rated 3 / 5 stars

I really do feel bad. I don't even know how to play this game. I just type some stuff in and nothing happens. At least I came up with some funny things to do. I think the graphics are actually pretty good. I also appreciate how this game is done.

I need a walkthrough with this. I wish you had made one. The sounds are pretty good too. I'm glad so many people enjoyed this. It just isn't for me. I think I've seen your artwork before.
