DarkLBA is a mashup of Alone in the Dark (zombies), Little Big Adventure (the hero: Twinsen and its magic ball (ok not so magic here)) and 2Dark (save kids (the game I'm working on IRL)).
This new version is easier to play.
You must bring all the kids to the exit: the blue square.
Touch their cage to deliver them, they will follow the exact path you make. So you need to show them the way to the exit. You can bring back all the kids at once or one by one, it's up to your strategy.
Watch the zombies, they target you or the kids. Destroy them throwing the ball with Action key (O).
If they grab you (and hold you for a few secs), you lose one life point. Keep one direction pressed to escape, and don't stop throwing balls.
If one grabs a kid, you have 7 seconds to kill it before the kid dies.
(X) pause the game and go back to the menu to see the map. Then you can start a new map or go back to the current game.
