Grilled Box
TERU-soachAction/Arcade0.44 MBClick here to download

Grilled Box is an action game which resembles Every Extend, developed by TERU-soach for a recent Three Minute Game competition. Blocks appear from the top of the screen at a steady rate, and players have to destroy as many blocks as they can before they reach the bottom. Left click on a block to start a chain reaction, or right click to use the magnet and bring the blocks closer to each other. Use these two actions sparingly, as clicking rapidly will decrease their charges faster and render them inactive for a short while when completely depleted. A time penalty is incurred for every block that escapes intact.

Vegetable Soup Tactics
RetroDev GamesAction/Arcade3.62 MBClick here to download

Vegetable Soup Tactics is the result of an attempt by Stewart Hogarth and Lyall Bruce to create a physics-based tile matching puzzler in under one day for the Dundee Game Jam meet in Scotland. Similar to Digital Eel's Soup du Jour, players must remove ingredients from the pot by selecting three or more of the same food stuff with each click of the left mouse button.

Use the add vegetable or shake option for extra points.

YaruharaShoot 'em up12.5 MBClick here to download

In Yaruhara's arena shooter Nanosmiles, players have to collect inactive options scattered around each area and use them to inflict damage on the enemies. Hold the Z key to activate your targeting system. Your weapons will automatically fire at targeted enemies if the same button is held down. Press the X key to make your ship travel quicker.

This new version features sixteen levels, twelve more than the original demo released shortly before Comiket 73.

PeposoftPlatformer206 MBClick here to download

Gigadeep is a new 2D platformer from the developer of Houkaimura (Breaking Town) and MinishoterRS, created in the style of Capcom's Mega Man Zero series. Peposoft's game features eight standard levels (plus two side stages), upgrades that can be purchased from the shop, boss abilities to add to your repertoire of skills, and unlockable characters that play differently from one another.

Though this collaborative project looks incredibly impressive for a freeware release, there are a couple of glitches and game-breaking bugs here that could seriously ruin your enjoyment of it. Playing it on easy doesn't help that much either, since death is instantaneous every time you accidentally touch a row of spikes (you can use the anchor shot ability to break them though).

The jump upgrade should be the first thing you purchase from the shop, and more abilities can be unlocked by collecting the secret research notes that you find throughout your mission. If you receive a pxPlay.mfx error while trying to start a game, placing a msvcr71.dll in your Windows/System folder should solve that particular problem for you.

Tank Domination
DHCAction/Arcade2.86 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Tank Domination is the latest release from DHC, an acclaimed Japanese freeware shmup developer. As the title suggests, your vehicle can move around and aim freely instead of being limited to one vertical direction. Hold the Z key to lock your aim and shoot at the same time.

Energy will only be replenished when all enemies shown on radar as red dots are destroyed. Your tank will explode with only one hit but three lives are given at the start of each game.

The version available for download features six short stages but does include four different difficulty levels to choose from.

Pretender, The
Launching Pad Games, Tim KnaufPuzzleBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

The Pretender: Part One is a puzzle platformer created by duo Tristan Clark and Tim Knauf, featuring charming animation and artwork supplied by Vin Rowe. You are in control of a magician named Laurence, who has to embark on a rescue mission after causing his entire audience to disappear in a performance gone awry.

Most of the puzzles are centered around stepping on magical tiles that change your form to one of the two elements, stone or air. When shaped out of air, winds can blow you in directions which are unreachable in your normal state. Turning into a stone golem bestows you with the strength to push boulders or smash rocks that are in your path.

A full screen option can be enabled by clicking on the window button just above the game's rating score.

Every Extend  
OMEGAShoot 'em up9.76 MBClick here to download
(external link)

OMEGA's Every Extend is quite the departure from standard shoot 'em ups. The objective of the game is to detonate your ship in the midst of your adversaries. Enemies appear in random patterns, hence positioning and timing are both important in setting off a huge chain reaction and earning a healthy combo bonus. Every time this ability is used, one extend is deducted from your total although it's possible to replenish this counter by getting high scores for each detonation.

Chris RazPlatformer2.65 MBClick here to download

Ninjah is a fast paced action-puzzler by Chris Raz, developer of Pogo Fred. The general idea is to get from A to B as quickly as possible with the help of an elastic ninja rope and your ability to move into slow motion.

You may only come into contact with blocks the same colour as your belt. To help combat this strange allergic reaction to the evil blocks, you can change the colour of your belt by hitting the corresponding checkered blocks.

Use the W, A and D keys to move. Hold the left mouse button to shoot, and press the right mouse button to use your rope. Use the space key to activate the slow motion mode.
