A downloadable game for Windows

The "Story"

In 'Johnny's Deathwish' you play as...Johnny, a reclusive junk enthusiast with a genetic predisposition to loving propeller hats no matter how dated they become.

When an item of extreme value and importance is taken from Johnny by a young dictator out on a walk, Johnny dusts off his blaster and sets off on his quest through the treacherous smoggy landscape to get it back...anyone who gets in his way is just collateral...

What can you expect from Johnny's Deathwish?

  • Borderline desk slamming parkour
  • Politically brainwashed, overzealous enemies
  • Traps...a lot of traps
  • One hit deaths
  • 27 levels
  • 2 boss fights
  • A local offline campaign scoreboard (Can you beat us at our own game...hopefully not)
  • Outfits for Johnny!
  • Challenge Maps

Just downloaded and I'm sure there's a lot to this game I haven't seen yet because it's HARD!!! Rewarding and fun and really good looking

Extremely addictive. Tight controls and a constant challenge always have you coming back for more. Frustrating as hell, but at least you get to look at great looking sprites when tearing your hair out...


Great game, would recommend if you like games that frustrate the hell out of you. Challenging and fun.


This game is fantastically frustrating and has given me a greater meaning of life - 10/10
