Necronomicon 2.0, The
Games of CthulhuStrategyBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

The Necronomicon 2.0 is a card game which involves two duelists locked in a deadly battle with only a deck of cards to influence combat proceedings. Both sides start out with forty life points, but gain an additional five maximum life points for each increase in level. The computer AI will gain one rank after each round of combat, but a player's level increase is determined by their performance in the previous battle.

To play a card, simply select one from your hand and click on book of Necronomicon at the center of the table. Sanity cost is shown at the bottom right of each card, although players are only penalized with a random insanity effect when their sanity counter is reduced to zero. The duel ends when one combatant loses all of his or her life points.

Only one creature can be summoned per side. Creatures do not attack directly, but will counterattack when their masters are injured by the opposing party. A creature's attack score is shown on the card itself and as a number in red when the creature is in play. Damage dealt by your creature is calculated by deducting the attack score of the opponent's summoned creature, then minus your opponent's armor rating or Elder Sign which is shown as a number next to a green symbol.

The red marking or Arcane Power is a bonus damage modifier for cards with the same symbol, while the yellow sign indicates the amount of damage you will take at the end of each turn due to spell or curse effects.

This popular card-based strategy game was recently updated with new card art, quicker turns, a card library and numerous bug fixes. Progress is now saved after each level, the number of ranks to play in standard mode was changed from twenty to thirty, and a challenge mode is included to artificially increase replay value.

Shinobido is a web advergame for Acquire's PS2 stealth-based action title with a similar name, in which players assume the role of a ninja who has to storm five different samurai strongholds, carry out their assigned objectives and reach the topmost floor to complete the mission.

Only the space and cursor keys are needed to play this game. Surprise an enemy from the back to execute a stealth kill, or press the space key to throw a shuriken at an opponent and stun them momentarily. Direct confrontations should be avoided whenever possible, as some health would be lost if you trade blows with an adversary. Mission objectives range from collecting all scrolls in the current stage to killing a certain number of enemies to progress.

There are only five strongholds to infiltrate in total.

Dustin FriendAction/Arcade0.67 MBClick here to download

Pie Panic Handheld Version was created in an attempt to recreate the old style of handheld LCD games, with easy controls and simple beeps.

On the title screen, select either Normal or Hard mode. Once you have made your selection, the game will begin. Move the character back and forth to position the basket underneath the falling apples. The basket can hold up to five apples. If you try to catch any other apples while there are five already in the basket, it will be counted as a miss. It can be emptied at any time by moving near the bag to the far right of the screen and pressing spacebar.

If you fail to catch an apple, it will be counted as a miss. Once you have three misses total, the game is over. Misses will occassionally be cleared once you have reached a certain point amount.

Use the arrow keys or A and D button to move your character left and right. Press the space key to empty your basket when in position, or select an option from the main menu. The P key can be used to pause the game. Press the escape key to quit the current game and return to the main menu.

Binary ZooPuzzle4.64 MBClick here to download

DUOtris is an excellent puzzler from Binary Zoo, makers of Mono and DUO. The name may be slightly misleading as the player is not required to make lines but instead link three or more blocks of the same color together to remove them from the screen.

Throw in the challenge of having two separate grids, requiring the player to shift and arrange two pieces at the same time and you have the makings of a fantastic game. You're allowed to swap pieces by pressing CTRL or space, although this option can only be used if none of the pieces has touched another block. The game ends if any of the accumulated stacks goes over the line at the top and bottom of the screen. Some blocks carry power-ups which, when destroyed, may help or hinder your progress.
