You are a passenger through the dark tunnels of the underground trapped in this action-packed shooting adventure. You are armed with a hand gun and you have enough bullets for every creature which flying, crawling or jumping at you. Everything is like a dream and you can't wake up from it... Wormholes and catacombs from hell are waiting for you down there. The only way to see the light of day again and leave this hell is to go through purgatory, so-called 'path of awakening'.
Loading may take some time because the game is 16MB.
I have to explain at the beginning that this flash game has nothing to do with the Dark Souls series. As you know, in march 2014 Dark Souls 2 was published, RPG multiplayer game for PS3 & XBox 360. This action game also has dark theme and the story revolves around the 'Cursed Undead'. Besides the name and the fact that 'Dark Soul - Path of Awakening' is placed in the 'underworld', these two games have nothing else in common. I mentioned all this because when I first saw this game I thought that it might be a flash demo, but it wasn't.
What is it about and how to play it
This is a classic action-packed shooting game with horror elements. The game is intense and dynamic because when the level starts there is no going back. You are exposed at all times to the bats, rats and monster attacks. There is not much time to think, you just shoot and continue shooting until the end of the level. The game is accompanied by an excellent music theme with strong bases. It is spiced with horror sounds and screams of the dying creatures. Art-work, character drawings and animations are obviously a work of some serious artist-animators, who had done their job very professionally. This is a very serious project from the technical aspect.
After the level is over, you can buy upgrades in the shop and pay with points you have earned. For example: for 15000 points you can buy the titanium barrel and thus increase the firing rate. Silver bullets cost 2000 points. M16 rifle is 15000.
The game has 13 levels. I am not superstitious but it is obvious why this number was chosen. Levels are similar and each has its own name: The Beginning, Flashes of the Rage, Lower Catacombs, Centrifuge etc. The last level is called 'Inferno' ominously referring to the hell from Dante's Divine Comedy. The 'Centrifuge' is very interesting because the road leads you to the cave with several entrances. You have to fight the giant rats and monsters which jump at you randomly from multiple tunnels simultaneously. At one point the tunnels start to 'rotate' - thus the name centrifuge. Besides killing monsters, you also collect points by shooting boxes, barrels and piles of (human!?) bones.
On higher levels the game picks up momentum and it's a total shootout, the screen is completely filled with body parts of fallen monsters and their blood. It's total chaos.

jai : Dark soul was beautiful. I'm expecting that this game would be in 3d but the animation was good.
