Once in a while the living have rare dreams. They dream of the secret passageways in the bowels of reality and the Darkness guarding their reverie. The passageways are winding and deceitful. The Darkness is hungry in its thousand forms. Yet a man of spirit will challenge them and, in the chaos of bleak mazes, he will find the way to the Scarlet Door, and behind it - Freedom.

Fourteen levels of breath-taking adventure set in grim world of madness made reality. Catacombs, poisoned collectors, underground laboratories and even the depths of Hell will become arenas for violent battles with the spawns of Darkness.

A wide variety of weapons all the way from shotgun to plasmagun and demonic abilities will help the brave men to dominate the battlefield, turning their enemies into clouds of blood-stained fog. Modern graphics and intensive, really cool game-play in keeping with the best traditions of classic FPS. All of it - in Dark Soul: Path of Awakening.

One of the best browser shooters I have ever played, here is some nitpicking:

-Story: The upgrade descriptions mainly make up for its absense, but it could have been more. The environments and enemy variations are great, but by the end you are way too OP to be fazed by the much-anticipated final boss.

-Signs of power: What are these for? You get them in the first few broken items, so they are not incentive to break more stuff, and they seem useless.

-Glasses: They can be upgraded in the Beast side, what are they? Not explained.

-Text: Too quick for most.

-Plasma rifle: I want to buy patrons 10 by 10, not all at once!

-Achievements: There aren't any! And I beat the game without losing a life, and how about beating it with a pistol alone?

-Beast: Its upgrades are a little OP, especially the resurrection, which lets you have 4 lives. However, these upgrades have made it possible to play with the pistol again in latter levels! Brilliant balancing!

That's it, just make more.

・You can upgrade Weapons or Rage skills.
・rage system is unique and I think ok.
・Weapons in this game are looks like Guns in Real life.
(Handgun Looks like Desert Eagle, And Shotgun looks like SPAS-12)
・You can earn cash by Breaking signs and lamps.

・This game has Only 1 Song During gameplay.
・This game has nothing to do with "DARK SOULS" (FromSoftware's ARPG).
It's Very Confusing.
・Tags says "fps", This game's genre is "Rail Shooter." (Something like The House Of the Dead)
・When you click "Secret Walkthrough" You'll move to another page.

I had read that this was one of the hardest PC games around, but it wasn't that bad. Also I have no idea why everyone told me it was an RPG. Oh well, not bad but definitely not as hard as everyone has been saying.

played this game for a little over an hour, was actually not to bad, gj!

if your gonna make an fps, at least make a good one
