Xargon Epic MegaGames, Inc. 1993

The game is a side-scrolling platform game very similar to Jill of the Jungle, but with improved graphics. In the game, the main character, Malvineous, must journey through strange landscapes as he seeks to destroy the evil Xargon. He's an archaeologist studying strange ruins in Madagascar. While attempting to translate the glyphs on the walls of one Blue Builder structure, a strange gas was emitted, and Malvineous slowly lost consciousness. Malvineous then had a dream-encounter with a talking Eagle, who gave him cryptic warnings. He then awoke in a strange land, the area in which the game takes place. He began exploring the world, finding hostile creatures and robots, while recording his findings in journal entries. He eventually encountered an evil entity named Xargon, who seems to have been a tyrannical ruler. Volume 1 was released as shareware, but volumes 2 and 3 must be purchased commercially. Initially, Malvineous is armed with a "laser bullet", allowing only one shot on-screen at a time. Various weapon upgrades are available, including thrown rocks, extra laser bullets, rapid-fire mode, and limited-ammo fireballs. These can be obtained as power-ups within a level, or purchased using emeralds. In 2008, the game was made freeware.
