Dark Soul

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.


Excellent rail shooter - movements are smooth, artwork is great and music is ambient. However there are some minor drawbacks - due to large amount of monsters their sounds are a bit repetitive, so a slight variation would be good. After level 13 there is nothing I can buy from the upgrades, so it would be great if could upgrade even more. Some ocassional mini-bosses or some forks on the road possibly leading to the same exit, but with some tweaks would make the game even better. Apart from that - excellent job!
P.S. I think this game was made by Russian-speaking developers, due to label price for beast upgrades (Cena) and a strange tooltip for ammo (patrons!?). What is "glasses"? "ochki=points"? I would love to play the original Russian version (if such one exists) :)

All 14 levels were fun.
Killed everything (except boss of course) with one hit fully upgraded shotgun.
Got everything upgraded by the end of level 12 past the door.
Gotta say, the easiest part was the boss.
Didn't need to use Plasma Cannon at all!
You should make a sequel.
(BTW first-timers, find the weak spot, all enemies have one.)

This is a great game!!

Awesome. I really like the gameplay style, haven't seen it before ( Im not familiar with most Arcade games ) and both the art style and the game premise are very cool.

Nice Job! Defiantly deserves the Daily 2nd

thrilling, absolutely thrilling! one problem though, the beast upgrades are buggy, instead of making it easier to obtain beast mode and making it last longer they did the opposite
