|A Game with a Kitty 2: Darkside Adventures ||Bernie||Platformer||14.7 MB||Click here to download|
In A Game with a Kitty 2: Darkside Adventures, you take on the role of an Arch-Chancellor on a quest to retrieve the lost crown, which equates to plenty of jumping and throwing stuff around.
The protagonist of the story can use the stars collected as weapons, but his inventory capacity will only allow up to thirty of them to be stuffed into his deep pockets. Special skills are awarded for surviving boss encounters, though certain jumps are pretty difficult to execute properly. The game consists of only four major locations in total, with an average of four to five short levels assigned to each.
There are several tough puzzles to figure out but nothing too perplexing with a bit of thought. Needless to say, a recommended download for fans of classic NES titles especially the Mario series.
|The Hive ||Vanni del Moral||Platformer||4.78 MB||Click here to download|
In The Hive you play as Alex Rig, a reporter who was investigating a missing persons case when he discovers a heavily-fortified research facility while snooping around for clues. Similar to Iji, Prince of Persia and Flashback, Alex will be doing a lot of climbing up platforms and crawling through air vents to find ammunition or health-replenishing items that he can keep in his inventory for later use.
The taser he carries is effective enough against guards at close range, but only rifles and shotguns can protect him from being overwhelmed by chasing mutants that are more resilient to bullet damage. Both the protagonist's health and his weapons can be upgraded in small increments, provided that you manage to locate the special items required to level up their stats.
The controls might feel clunky and unresponsive at first, but if you give the game a chance to impress it could even suprise you with its high production values in just about every other area. This 2D platformer was created by Vanni del Moral as his entry for submission to the YoYo Games' 'Discovery' competition.

Honeyblaster is the latest release from the low key game development team LowFuel, though they have been quite prolific in other areas such as the demo scene and design related work.

Each stage has it's own setting and offers a variety of enemies to blast at, but undeniably the Doom tribute level was designed to impress the most.

|musagi ||DrPetter, Tomas Pettersson||Application||2.07 MB||Click here to download|
Musagi is a fairly sophisticated music editor and synthesizer which is more polished than most shareware or commercial products available in the market. The program comes with a broad range of instruments, from predefined retro sounds that can be customized to a MIDI interface and a WAV sampler.
Even if you're not a composer and do not hook up your musical instrument to record tunes on your PC or use the keyboard to play them, you can ignore the more advanced sound-editing features and start composing a nice melody right away.
Be sure to read the text file in the documentation folder, then check out the nicely written step-by-step tutorial that will guide you in composing your very first tune. - Lim-Dul

|The Freecol Team||Strategy||22.9 MB||Click here to download|
FreeCol is an open version of Colonization, a Civilization-like game in which the player has to conquer the new world.
You start the game with one vessel and two colonists. In the beginning you'll be able to send ships back to Europe in order to sell the goods you've produced or to bring back some colonists. Getting colonists into the new world is an important aspect of the game as each turn takes one year and later on even one season and as a result colonies don't grow as rapidly as they do in Civilization. You can pay colonists to come to the new world or you can attempt to persuade them with the religious freedom of your people in which case they will hop on your vessels for no money at all.
Another important aspect is trade, the source of all income apart from Inca and Aztec gold. In a land filled with precious resources it is important to build your colonies at the right location and to place crafstmen where they belong. This is not only to have an income but also to be able to live off the land when you can no longer count on the support of Europe.
Through all this you'll have to decide whether or not you want to live next to the native americans peacefully. They can teach your colonists new skills that cannot be taught anywhere else and they will offer you goods in case you choose to treat them as your friends. On the other hand, their villages can be attacked and their valuable goods can be taken from them and sold in Europe.
Other European forces are also busy occupying their piece of the new world. Should their borders go too far then take over some of their colonies by force because they wouldn't hesitate to do the same thing to you.
The object of Colonization is to declare your independence and survive an attack of the King's forces. Before declaring your independence you need to have the majority of the people behind you. This can be done by promoting free speech and by providing a strong governmental system.
|L' Abbaye des Morts ||Locomalito||Platformer||1.39 MB||Click here to download|
L' Abbaye des Morts (The Abbey of the Dead) is another excellent game from the creator of Hydorah and 8-Bit Killer, a 2D platformer that draws inspiration from classics such as Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. Here you play as Jean Raymond, a preacher who escapes to an abandoned church after being chased by a group of crusaders. Following the instructions on parchments left behind by past occupants of the building, Jean must seek out and collect the twelve cathar crosses before he can escape from his pursuers.
Each of the twenty-three rooms have a different name to label the location, and some of the short descriptive text may even provide clues on how to solve a puzzle or two. Jean does not carry a weapon nor will he acquire one during his adventure, and the cursor keys are the only controls you ever need to use in this game from start to end.
L' Abbaye des Morts can be beaten in a single afternoon, although it is unlikely that you will complete the quest on your first try.
