Description of Xargon

One of Epic Megagames' most obscure shareware titles, Xargon is a fun scrolling arcade/adventure game base on the same engine as its much more popular cousin Jill of the Jungle.

As the official description goes, your goal: " to guide Malvineous through dangerous lands filled with hazardous enemies. You must find three power objects in each volume and use their magical powers if you ever hope to get out alive! In volume 1 you must find and destroy one of Xargon's main reactors. In volume 2 you must find the "Secret Chamber" here Tinia's Lyre is hidden. In volume three you confront the powerful and evil Xargon himself."

Gameplay is standard side-scrolling action that fans of Epic's other games wil be familiar with. In many ways, though, Xargon is a better game than Jill of the Jungle. In addition to some really cool (and creative) enemies, levels, and power-ups, Xargon features a nice overhead map you use to explore the land. When you enter a location (such as a cave, city, etc.), the game shifts to the normal 2D side-scrolling mode.

In addition to providing a nice respite from combat and place all the platform levels in a logical geographical context, the overhead map also serves as the venue for plot advancement: from time to time, a text-box will pop up when you reach a certain location, describing story developments.

Anyone who enjoys Jill of the Jungle and Jazz Jackrabbit will find Xargon an enjoyable game that is also much longer than an average Epic platformer. Strangely enough, it was not included in Epic's catalog of oldies they still sell at Epic Classics site, although the official game pages are still up. So, download the registered version here :)

I released the full version and you can download it here: It's possible that the word "Shareware" appears in the two paid versions. They are free and they are the full version. I'm so glad people still enjoy the game I created.

If you want to play the full game and use the menu to select the game just rename the XARGON2.EXE to XRFILE02.EXE and do the same for XARGON3.EXE to XRFILE03.EXE
