1[[quoteright:350:]]²''Death Row'' is a video game created in 2008. It's playable on Website/{{Kongregate}} and It's a game about Hector Van Daemon, a man who was unfairly framed for terrorism. He's now on death row and will die in 14 days... but if he finds eight pieces of evidence and reforms himself, the governor will free him...²²The gameplay is a simulation. Hector has to earn money to buy furniture, which contains the evidence and keep his stats (Health, Mood, Respect and Work Ethic) high, which reforms him. Then, he'll get the code that will allow him to escape.²----²!! This game provides the following tropes:²* AWinnerIsYou: The ending is just one screen of text with a picture of Hector outside.²* DeathRow: Well, yeah.²* DrivenToSuicide: If Hector's mood gets too low, he hangs himself.²* HighVoltageDeath: Hector is about to die from an electric chair.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Hector may be a dick at first, but if you work with him, he turns nicer.²* MistakenForTerrorist: Hector himself, thanks to his criminal record.²* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Hector Van ''Daemon''. Though he isn't that bad.²* TimedMission: The game has a time limit: 14 days.²* UnwinnableByDesign: If Hector tries to hack the pentagon, the computer gets confiscated and getting the code becomes impossible.²* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: If you input the governor's code, the game's ending isn't shown, at least not on Website/{{Kongregate}}. Instead, it tells you to play at²----


How well does it match the trope?
