Walker and Silhouette
- Windows, Mac, Linux
C.E.J. PacianAdventure1.60 MBClick here to download

Walker and Silhouette is a short interactive fiction game about a pair of detectives named Nate and Ivy, working together to solve a case for the Oldchester Criminal Investigation Department. The interface is an easy one to use, and all a user has to do is to click on a highlighted keyword to investigate further or progress the story forward. Occasionally certain words like leave, think and help have to be typed in, but these situations rarely occur and wouldn't cause too much of an inconvenience to any player.

The writing on display is good, the storyline is intriguing, and there are some clever puzzles designed just for the single keyword system. A windows executable is included with the Windows version, while Linux and Mac users can play the game by using a TADS interpreter to run the TADS 3 game file.

Virtual II

Virtual 2 is the spiritual sequel to an earlier abstract shooter by Vector Games, though the vertical shmup element has been substituted with the freedom of movement in an area that wraps around.

Press the left control key to warp and create a small circle. Static objects with the same color caught in it will reward the player with bonus points.

Enemies leave trail when traveling, and your ship will be terminated if it crosses these lines with another color. Use the left shift key to change your ship's color. A more relaxed gameplay compared to the frenetic pace introduced by it's predecessor.

Galshell 2 Bullet Rain
(mature content, nudity)
ArtesneitShoot 'em up8.80 MBClick here to download

Galshell 2 Bullet Rain is perhaps the most accessible of all Artesneit releases, though they're not taking it any easier on the nudity content.

It's possible to begin playing from any of the three levels, with plenty of continues to use and a different character assigned to each difficulty. Collect items marked with the letter P to increase your power-up gauge. When it's completely filled, your weapon will receive a decent firepower upgrade.

Not suitable for players with weak stomaches.

Trouble Witches
Studio SiestAShoot 'em up122 MBClick here to download

The trial version of Trouble Witches features two playable levels and cartoon graphics not unlike some of the stuff seen in Konami's Parodius series. Pets act as options, while temporary upgrades in the shape of spell cards can be bought from the shop. These appear periodically, tied to a hot air balloon in the shape of a pumpkin head.

The shopkeeper can be touched in strange places, though the results from such actions are unknown. Coins are be collected automatically when the shoot button isn't held down. Tap the X key to cast a protective spell, or press the C key to use a spell card if one is bought from the shop. The V key serves as a pause button.

A choice of three difficulty settings are shown after the character selection screen, with the one at the top being the easiest.

MyChess is a browser implementation of the classic board game, designed especially just for multiplayer sessions with other Kongregate members. To play you will need a Kongregate account, and once you've logged in you'll be presented with a chat room where other players can be invited for a game. You can watch live games, play competitive or friendly matches, set the rules, decide the amount of time allowed per player, and even choose a side before initiating a match.

If you enjoy a game of chess regularly then you'll like this version quite a bit. Otherwise, not so much.

FleaFall is a fast, skill based, non-violent multiplayer game with little fleas and bright big levels.

Your flea jumps left and right and can stick to walls, but not steep overhangs. You have two buttons to control jumping left or right. The longer you hold down the button, the further you will jump in that direction. You will always jump the same height. In single player you are always the red flea.

Jump into the shining orb to beat your opponents. This will give you points. The trick is to get to the orb before the others. Up to four players can play at the same time on the same computer. You can also play against computer controlled fleas in multiplayer mode.

Penumbra is an amazing achievement by a small development team with only four main members, although quite a few people have helped out during it's production. Termed as a horror adventure game, the graphics are actually on par with recent commercial FPS releases.

What's unique about this particular title is that most of the objects in the game are affected by physics. For example, boxes can be stacked on top of each other to access higher ground. Some puzzles require the manipulation of items in creative ways.

The flashlight battery runs out quickly, but fortunately a glowstick lasts forever. Alternate between both by pressing the F or G key for a little illumination. Game is saved automatically.
