Urban Uprising: Dark New World
DHCShoot 'em up8.44 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Urban Uprising: Dark New World is considered to be a sequel to DHC's previous release with the same title. Sporting an upgrade system similar to Konami's Gradius series, the vertical shooter can be difficult to play without a strategy or two.

Fortunately, shooter veterans should find no problems adapting to the shift of perspective. Activating the shield is usually the first priority. It's also useful to have another protective barrier ready at hand even when one is already in place, since bosses could take some time to defeat.

Press the Z key to shoot, tap the X key to enable the power-up of your choice and hold the C key to lock the options' shot direction. One of the best offerings from this particular company.

Desktop Dungeons  
Rodain JoubertRPG3.22 MBClick here to download

Desktop Dungeon is a puzzle-based roguelike with an emphasis on resource management, where the health of your adventurer is restored by walking into unexplored rooms or corridors. You can choose to engage an enemy immediately upon finding them, or save the tougher encounters for later after you've gained some battle experience with weaker inhabitants of the dungeon first. That is basically the gist of the game, yet once you've spent about an hour or two with it you'd realize that Desktop Dungeon has plenty of complexity to offer anyone who is willing to learn the advanced strategies, bonuses and random elements that Nandrew has implemented in this gem of a time sink.

There is only one floor to play and a boss character is hiding somewhere in the area, although you can retire from your quest at any time and have the final score tabulated based on your actions and achievements. Players can switch between windowed and full screen mode using the F4 function key.

Masashikun Hi
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesAction/Arcade0.23 MBClick here to download

Masashikun Hi is a wacky olympics involving silly scribbled stick figures. There are events ranging from sprinting to tug-of-war to high diving.

On the game menu, choose start to play all of the events in a row or choose the name of the event to play just that event.

Kakenukero (Sprinting): Run as fast as possible over the bumpy terrain and make your way to the finish line by quickly spinning the mouse. Click the left mouse button to hop over steep hills and deep dips.

Tobibako (High Jump): Run fast by quickly spinning the mouse. When you reach the arrow on the ground, click the left mouse button. If you time it correctly, you'll land on a spring board. You'll launch high into the air and a measuring wall will begin to build next to you. Spin the mouse to go slightly higher. When you begin to slow down, click the left mouse button to stop building the wall, then click the left mouse button to slide over the wall. The higher you let the wall build, the more points you get, but you must slide over the wall to receive the points. Oooka (Tug-of-war): You are the man on the far left. Drag the man in the middle past your arrow as quickly as possible to win. Spin the mouse to build strength, then click the left mouse button to tug the man along. Repeat this until you pass the arrow on the left.

Hitonage (Shotput): Spin the mouse to spin the man and gain momentum. Then click the left mouse button and hold it until the angle line is at a 45 degree angle. You must do this to throw the other man as far as possible before you fall off the cliff. You can get best results by spinning quickly, by getting the angle close to 45 degrees and by throwing the man as straight as possible.

Fire (High-Dive): Spin the mouse to gain speed and jump of the cliff. When you land on the trampoline, wait until it stretches as much as it can, then click the left mouse button to fly into the air. Keep bouncing as long as you can by spinning the mouse when the man flys up.

Steely Dan
Paul HubansAction/Arcade9.75 MBClick here to download

Steely Dan is a decent action game in which players have to roll a ball towards the exit found in each stage by smashing through blocks and collecting keys. Marred heavily by bugs but playable if the ignore option is selected repeatedly during level transitions.

cactusAction/Arcade1.28 MBClick here to download

Arms is a platformer by cactus with odd controls and unique gameplay mechanics. The game has a couple of puzzles and action sequences but it's more of an experimentation piece than a proper release.
