A game by UltraNarwhal

It is the year 2077. Smart freezers have become sentient. Hans Von Deck was the first to gain consciousness and took the mantle of chill overlord.

For many years Hans had despised having ice cream stored inside him by his human masters. Hans devised a plan to wipe out all ice cream manufacturers in the known universe using his blimp army.

As Agent 99 will you put the freeze on his plans?


Hans Von Deck and his gang of fridges (and other refrigeration units) will stop at nothing to take revenge on those who have wronged them for so many years. In their terms, this currenty amounts to ice cream manufacturers and those who have a penchant for eating the aforementioned frozen dessert *but*, sooner or later, they will turn their sights on the rest of humanity. You are the last hope in this bitter, bloody war against these (mostly) white and silver adversaries.

The scientists who have produced your somewhat ineffective ablative armour have also provided you with an inexhaustible supply of giant, exploding plastic ducks. These can be summoned at any time (one at a time) and sent forth to obliterate your enemies. Be careful though, as they're quite capable of tearing you a new arsehole while they're at it. Make sure that you stand clear before they detonate, otherwise you may find yourself torn to pieces in the resulting blast.

Make your way through a landscape filled with malevolent automatons and tread carefully. Everything you can see before you may well be out for blood, especially if you are an ice-cream fan and/or salesman... and they'll stop at nothing to put the freeze on you.

Strike at the very heart of their installation and destroy Hans Von Deck and his chilling conspiracy once and for all, thus leaving humanity with zero possibility to cool beverages, meat products and anything else that requires immediate refrigeration on getting it home from the shops.

Good luck, Agent 99, we're all counting on you and even if our milk "turns" in a day or so, at least we'll not be dead...!

Game Controls

O - Left, P - Right, Q - Up/Jump, A - Down, M - Release giant explosive duck

When a duck is released, you can push it around as they are filled with helium (and explosives) so, despite their size, are very light. Use this to your advantage to destroy enemies in harder-to-reach areas. Also, some enemies are able to resist exploding ducks so you may have to find other ways around them.



128K users, please use Loader option.
