Yakouga is a freeware shooter developed by Artesneit, and much like the rest of their releases it features intricately drawn alien landscapes and creatures.

Hold the left shift key to shoot and press the Z key to activate your special weapon. It's worthwhile acquiring both versions as they present different level designs and challenges.

Presented by Artesneit, Yakouga 2 is another excellent freeware shooter that might be a tad too difficult for beginners. The level indicated on the top right of the screen reflects your weapon's current firepower, while the HP gauge shows how much damage you're able to take before going down in a pool of blood.

Green emeralds increase the amount of time you have before entering critical condition, with the unfortunate side effect of gradual HP loss. The download links can be a little difficult to access but it's well worth the trouble.

Yakouga 4 is a rather average vertical shooter by Artesneit featuring two levels worth of gameplay plus the obligatory sub and end level bosses included for good measure. Hold the Z or C key to shoot, and press the X key to launch a bomb.

Yellow Goo Love

The objective of Yellow Goo Love is to guide an elastic goo ball to the end position marked by a red flag, simply by using the mouse to launch it in a forward or upward trajectory motion. A new tile, rule or obstacle is introduced every few levels, although the game does end rather quickly since there are only a total of twenty stages to play in this build.

Yokegee bears similarities to Nintendo's Balloon Fight, though objects in the game are represented by pixels instead of 2D sprites. Hold space to gain altitude, release to dive.

To start a game, guide your pixel towards the word easy. Avoid other pixels, ceilings or floors while floating from right to left in order to maintain your health and advance to the next level.

Each difficulty setting presents twenty stages, and a small completion percentage is awarded for every attempt. New options are revealed when the player acquires fifteen, twenty-five and thirty percent completion.

You Cannot Die
Matt LefflerAction/Arcade0.16 MBClick here to download

You Cannot Die is a Western-themed action game that Matt Leffler is currently working on, with a demo of first area already available to download and try out. Here you play as a colonist who had just regained consciousness in a deserted area on the planet Mars, with no recollection of the events that led to his current predicament. The only way to survive in this barren wasteland is to scavenge for items that can be used as weapons or as means of protecting yourself, since the knife in your possession isn't particularly useful during frenetic gunfights.

There is one small quest that you can complete in this test build. You'll need to have the XNA Framework already installed on your machine to get the game to run.

You Found the Grappling Hook is a simple rope physics game consisting of ten short levels, featuring music by Aaron Kurtz.

You Got a Demonwall

Warning: Contains flashing images which may cause photosensitive epileptic seizures.

You Got a Demonwall! is one of the more arresting submissions for the Ludum Dare 14 competition, partly due to its unabashed use of epileptic-inducing effects on nearly all objects to be found in-game. Playing as a wall of doom which can only move forward or sideways, the objective of this particular romp is to smash through as many buildings and vehicles as you can for scoring purposes. The wall grows in size as you progress from screen to screen, but shrinks when a chopper hits you with one of their shots.

There is no way to lose the game, unless you count scoring low as a losing condition.

You Have No Legs

Nagnazul's You Have No Legs is a Metroid-style game where you play as Jack, an archaeology student who got himself trapped inside a cave after an earthquake incident during a visit to a dig site in Mexico. To complicate matters even further, Jack has no legs so moving around the labyrinth is going to take some effort from the player.

Fortunately our hero is able to travel from one place to another by dragging himself using his arms, and after grabbing a couple of power-ups to build up muscle strength and courage he can even climb walls or ceilings inside the maze. Once a map has been found, pushing the M key brings it up on screen for players to review and refine their plan of escape.

There are small pools of water that you can swim in to save your game, although it should be noted that any progress made during your last session will be completely wiped out the second that new game option at the main menu screen is clicked. Also don't forget to grab a feather (which makes Jack lighter) from the secret room located just to the left side of the area where your first power-up is acquired. This makes the game slightly easier to play, and you have one less location to backtrack to on your long list of rooms to revisit.
