Parasite is a free and multiplatform action/platform game that features a horizontal view and ten levels of hardcore gameplay, through 230 different screens. The game is inspired by the Ar'Kritz the Intruder DOS game, formerly known as Parasite, which was released in the late 1996.
The original game has been created and produced in Virtual Studio's offices in France. It was the first High Definition (HD) game that was capable of running at 60 FPS (frames per second) on personal computers.
The game's story is based on Jack, the main character, which drink a microscopic extra-terrestrial police officer, called Ar'Kritz. The alien will cause genetic mutations to Jack's body by creating a toxic substance. Therefore, Jack will transform into a powerful monster.
The player controls a unique character that must fight against dozens of enemies. You will have to kill enemies (with your bare hands or with a weapon of your choice), run, climb ladders, as well as to jump holes.
In addition, you must collect all the necessary items to solve the game's puzzles. But, there's a catch! Jack will die if you don't help him. Your mission is tricky, full of enigmas, weapons, bonuses, and powerful enemies. To view the gameplay, check out the following video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnKQUtyPcGY.
