R-Theta
Theta GamesAction/Arcade0.98 MBClick here to download
(external link)

In R-Theta, you control a shooter that can move up and down a constantly rotating radar-scope line. You must shoot all enemies that appear on the radar-scope before the rotating line hits them. As you shoot more enemies, the line rotates faster.

R-Theta is based in polar coordinates. Each point is described with a directional value marking its angle from the horizontal axis and a radius value marking its distance from the centre. The theta value is constantly increasing, while you control the radius value. When a shot is fired, it moves not in a straight line, but in a curved path circling the centre.

There are a variety of key controls simultaneously represented in the game. Use the arrow keys to increase or decrease the radius value of the shooter. Press the space, control or J key to shoot. Controls can be inverted by using the shift or I key. Press P or the enter key to pause the game.

Extra lives are awarded for scores of integer of tenm starting at 1000, then for 10000, 100000 and so forth.

R-Theta 2 is a game based in polar coordinates. Every point in the game is assigned a radius and theta value, denoting the distance of the point from the centre, as well as the angle it makes with the x-axis.

The player is in control of a triangular shooter, built into a constantly rotating radar-scope which must be protected from collision with other enemies. Use the up and down arrow keys to decrease or increase the ship's radius from the centre. Hold the X key for rapid fire, tap the Z key to shoot and use the C key to launch a destructive missile.

Radical Fishing

In Radical Fishing you play as a fisherman named Billy who is trying to make a living by catching fishes, out at sea with just a pistol, a pole, and a long yet unbreakable fishing line as his starting equipment. You begin each round by casting your line into the water and guiding the hook past any swimming fishes that try to get a bite of it. The line is automatically reeled in the second a fish is caught, but you can (and should) latch on to other marine life while the hook is on its way up. Once the fishes are out of the water, they will stay airborne for a couple of seconds so that you can blast them into chunks of fish meat to sell at the market.

Any cash you've earned can be spent at the shop to purchase better equipment or increase the length of your fishing line (among other things). The game includes a couple of achievements that you can unlock and an online leaderboard for you to submit your scores to, although you'll have to sign up for a Bored.com member account first before these two features are made accessible to the player.

Ragdoll Cannon 2 is a proper sequel to the similarly titled physics-based puzzle game, where players would have to blast stick figures out of a cannon towards the target to complete each of the seventy levels included. Shot power is determined by the distance between the targeting reticle and the cannon when the left mouse button is pressed.

Rainbow Wars
Luke SchneiderShoot 'em up2.15 MBClick here to download

Rainbow Wars is a pretty good arena shooter by Luke Schneider of Volition Inc., responsible for delivering the Descent series among other projects. A dual analog gamepad works well here, although the mouse and keyboard combination isn't too shabby either.

Use the left mouse button to warp, and hold the right mouse button to charge your special attack. A nice addition is the option to continue playing from any stage previously attempted, but the easy difficulty only allows access to the first ten waves. Click on design ideas to begin downloading.

Rakker and the Sinking Cities
MitchHMPlatformer0.75 MBClick here to download

Rakker and the Sinking Cities is a decent little platformer in the style of Alex Adventure, set in an age where rabbits walk instead of hop and ladders were never invented. The protagonist can stomp on enemies to knock them out, though collision hit detection is a bit off and could easily spell the end for our furry friend if you're not careful.

Use the Z key to jump, and push the up arrow key to activate switches. Press the ALT and F4 function key to exit the game at any time. There are only three short stages to play.
