The “Drunkard” is a single player side scrolling classic platform game where you are Bill, a thirty something year old man who is suffering from a rare medical condition that requires him to drink alcohol in order to stay sober.
Bill is in search of an elusive doctor who is believed to know how to cure Bill’s condition, this doctors location however is shrouded in mystery.
The players role is to make their way through levels set in various cities avoiding police who may think he is drunk (although he is not) who will arrest him, cyclists and Henchmen of the evil Dr Gein who wants to experiment upon him. If Bill encounters any of these enemies he must run away and/or hide from them to avoid capture otherwise the level will re-start. Upon completion of each level Bill is rewarded with a part of a map coordinate that he inputs in to his smartphone map to try to locate the elusive doctor.
Because Bill requires a steady supply of alcoholic beverages the player must be on a constant look out for them and consume them, coffee and energy drinks should be avoided as these have a negative effect on alcohol. As the effects of alcohol wear off Bill appears to be more and drunk and therefore becomes harder to control as Bill starts to lean forward and will eventually fall over. As the player you must counteract this falling over motion by tilting the device or by pressing the opposite direction on the controller and find an alcoholic beverage.
