Heart of Darkness was made in 1998 by the producers and designers of "Another World
" (also commonly known as "Out of this World
"). The game is a side scrolling platform puzzle game
, similar in gameplay to Another World and Prince of Persia
. The game is a hidden gem most commonly known through the games' Sony Playstation one platform release. I also believe the game was released free on PC at one stage, through buying specially branded promotional packets of Kellog's cornflakes cereal. The game is as difficult as Out of this World (very difficult). You will die often
, however the cut scenes when you do die are often unique, entertaining, hilarious and gruesome. The game involves a lot of puzzles, that require much thought to progress. The storyline involves your protagonist "Andy" having his dog "Whiskey"
taken away by a solar eclipse. Luckily Andy has a time-machine that he conveniently has parked in his garage to find his missing dog. It is a bit of a cheesy storyline, but at least it is a brief explanation how the protagonist got to this surreal and bizarre world. Anyone who was a fan of the cult game Another World, will be happy to play this similar style platform cartoon side-scrolling game.
