Plot

Surlaw Armageddon begins years after Walthros, after the cast has drifted apart and the world has calmed down. Bob Surlaw awakens in a house that isn't quite his, in a world that becomes more and more disturbing as he explores it. He travels through time and dimensions, through life and death, and explores a variety of worlds plagued by the minions of a mysterious King.

Background

Surlaw Armageddon is part of a larger series of games that started with Walthros in 2000-2002. Surlaw Armageddon can be enjoyed on its own, but is enhanced by playing the older games in the series. There is an Appendix on the main menu in game that explains more details of the world to newcomers.

Walthros is a world where floating fish, dinosaurs, and giant monsters are the most common citizens. Bob Surlaw is a Walthrosian Fish who worked as an explorer/archaeologist before a strange event in local ruins set him on a course that would forever change his world.

Gameplay

Surlaw Armageddon is a turn based RPG. Each character has a unique set of skills, and there are no levels to gain or experience to earn. New skills are learned through story events and by finding item boxes. In battle, the player can choose to use weak, medium, or strong attacks, each of which charges up a different number of skill points that can be spent to use more advanced moves. After a battle ends, the player loses some skill points, the amount lost depending on difficulty level selected.
