Xargon

Post  msistarted on Fri Dec 10, 2010 10:20 am

Xargon is a 1993 video game trilogy produced by Epic MegaGames (now Epic Games) for PCs running MS-DOS. It was programmed by Allen Pilgrim. The graphics were created by Joe Hitchens, who also contributed to Epic Pinball and Jill of the Jungle. The game is a side-scrolling platform game very similar to Jill of the Jungle, but with improved graphics. The main character, Malvineous Havershim, must journey through strange landscapes as he seeks to destroy the evil Xargon.

Volume 1 was released as shareware, but volumes 2 and 3 had to 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.

The game was a contemporary of such games as Id Software's Commander Keen and Apogee Software's Duke Nukem II. Allen Pilgrim declared the registered version freeware on August 4, 2008.[1]
