sound card.Dark Ages
was distributed as shareware. It consists of three episodes, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version. The episodes are:
- Prince of Destiny
- The Undead Kingdom
- Dungeons of Doom
The game was released as freeware on March 20, 2009.
The player controls the prince and heir to the landís greatest kingdom (referred to as the Great Kingdom). When the prince was a child, Garth, a power hungry wizard of immense power and greed, killed his father and took the throne. Rather than kill the prince he sent him to be raised by peasants, but even Garthís evil magic could not foresee his mistake, since the very peasant he delivered him to was once the Kingdomís greatest hero, and as the prince grew he was taught the ways of a master fighter. One of the things he learned well was how to use magic as a weapon.
In the years after Garthís conquest, the kingdom had fallen into ruin and despair, with no hope of returning to the times of happiness and prosperity. Garth ruled with an iron fist and terrorized the population with undead creatures.
The player's quest is to find Garth and rescue the Kingdom from the Dark Ages itís trapped in. The difficult journey takes the player through badlands, castles, dungeons, caves, forests and finally to the Great Kingdom itself, with Garthís army of undead creatures attacking at every turn.
The final episode ends with a confrontation between the prince and Garth. After killing Garth, the prince's destiny is fulfilled, having freed the kingdom from the Dark Ages of fear and tyranny. The prince assumes his rightful place as the peaceful King and Leader of the Kingdom. The Great Kingdom is once again free to prosper and grow without fear.Needs Wiki Magic Love
