In Alex the Allegator 4, your task is to guide Alex through the jungle in order to save his girlfriend Lola from her captors. Every level has an exit which Alex must find in order to advance to the next level.

On his way, Alex can pick up various thing for points and powerups. Enemies can be jumped on and eaten, or you can spit on them. Eating them will generate more points. To spit, you'll need ammo. This is obtained by eating large eggs that are scattered over the levels.

Another way of defeating enemies is the roll mode. On some levels you can find a rotating symbol. Step on it and Alex will turn into a ball and roll fast in the direction he was facing.

When rolling, Alex can crash into the enemies without losing health. He can also crash into some blocks and make new paths through the level. While rolling, it is impossible to stop or turn. Alex will not stop until he hits a wall.

If you collect all stars and cherries on every level, a special secret will be unlocked.

Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game on a hexgrid with single-player campaigns and multi-player matches. Players can build an army of different kinds of fighters from races such as elves, dwarves, orcs, trolls, and more.

Each unit has its own strengths and weaknesses. A unit's defense is based solely on the type of terrain it stands on, making terrain and placement of units very important. Different types of attacks such as melee and ranged, weapon types, and a day-night cycle that alternately favors lawful and chaotic units add to the strategy. Throughout the campaigns units can advance to higher level counterparts and become more powerful. Part of the fun is developing your own army of advanced units as you play through the campaigns.

Cave Story

PixelPlatformer0.88 MBClick here to download

Cave Story is a freeware sidescrolling platformer title created by Daisuke Amaya, art-name Pixel. You control a cute little amnesiac who runs around helping out these rabbit-ish creatures called Mimigas while trying to find your way out of the giant cave inside the floating island which makes up the game's setting.

You can expand your health meter by collecting Life Capsules in similar fashion to Metroid games, while you can get stronger by collecting energy to boost your firearms' output. Each weapon can be built up to the maximum level fairly quickly, but taking damage will drain energy from its experience meter, sometimes causing it to level down. Given how quickly they power up this only tends to be an issue during boss fights, and even then there's usually plenty of opportunities for collecting more weapon energy.

The game has loads of secrets, too. For a freeware Japanese platformer, it's fairly lengthy and has quite a large amount of text. We're also talking three very different endings, plenty of plot, and quite a cast of charming characters. It really is a superb little gem.
