|Unattended Luggage||Terry Cavanagh, Stephen Lavelle, Alteisentier, distractionware, increpare||Action/Arcade||3.56 MB||Click here to download|
Unattended Luggage is a short action game where players would have to collect all packages in each room to progress from one stage to another. The task is made slightly difficult by airport security personnels who are out to prevent you from carrying out your given objective, although dodging around them requires nothing more than a bit of skill and luck.
Use the cursor keys to move, and press the space key to advance cutscene text. The game will probably take about five minutes to beat.
|Crazy Bound 2||CraftM||Platformer||6.33 MB||Click here to download|
Crazy Bound 2 by CraftM is a 2D action game in the style of Within a Deep Forest, where players have to guide a bouncing object past obstacles and dangers placed haphazardly in the underground caverns. Use the up and down arrow key to view other sections of the map, and hold the space key to center the view at all times. Wall jumps should be mastered in order to progress past the second stage. Hold the cursor key in the direction opposite of a wall to jump off it, and repeat the process in a small opening to scale upwards any surface.
|Return to Wor||Jph Wacheski, Gabe Brooks||Action/Arcade||1.21 MB||Click here to download|
Return to Wor is an isometric take on the classic Wizard of Wor, featuring gorgeous pixel graphics courtesy of Gabe Brooks. As a Worrior, your task is to hunt down monsters in a maze-like dungeon with a unified field disruption rifle and several useful abilities not found in the original.
|Round and Round the Tsuchiyui||Crostar||Shoot 'em up||3.28 MB||Click here to download|
Crostar returns with another gem entitled Round and Round, this time it's a variation of the Game Boy classic entitled Kuru Kuru Kururin. Your task is basically to guide both protagonists towards the end of the level while avoiding collision with baddies and inanimate objects.
Collect at least one flashing item with each character to enable the shoot action. Shots will be fired towards the white dot, so you need to navigate and position the enemies in the right place to harm them.
Press the Z key to do damage, or hold the X key to slow down the rotation speed.
|Beacon ||Chevy Ray Johnston||Platformer||3.36 MB||Click here to download|
Depending on how good you are at overcoming difficult challenges, Beacon can be a rather lengthy platformer that will take some time to beat. Shadows are lurking in every corner waiting for our protagonist to make a wrong move, but as luck would have it a beacon of light appears out of nowhere to help him illuminate the way forward.
The beacon will occasionally take a branching path that is out of your reach, and you would have to rely on the light from blue and red crystals just as often to progress.
|Samurai Railroad Mansion ||Lurk||Action/Arcade||19.1 MB||Click here to download|
Samurai Railroad Mansion is an action game developed by Lurk using Mark Overmars' Game Maker engine, and has more than a passing resemblance to Nintendo's light gun classic Hogan's Alley. A simple tutorial shown before the start of each level explains the type of enemies a player will encounter, though the advice on offer can be rather vague at times.
Hold the left or right cursor key before pressing the attack button to swing your blade in either directions. Your samurai's face will appear above the section in which he will strike at when the Z key is held. Press the F4 function key to switch between full screen and windowed mode.
Honor is lost when you hit a maiden or an opponent who has submitted to you, but can be restored by one rank for every ten thousand points you acquire. Timing is a crucial element in this game, as certain enemies can only be attacked after a few seconds, while others have to be sliced at the moment they appear on screen. There are only eight stages to play in total.
|Heed||Ben Chandler||Adventure||12.0 MB||Click here to download|
Heed is a short adventure game created by Ben Chandler using the reliable AGS engine, where you assume control over an unnamed protagonist who is searching for the purpose of his existence. There's not a lot of puzzles in this release, and none of them are particularly difficult, although the game has been structured in such a way that you would only find the interesting ones in the second half of your adventure.
|Chessmine||Event Cascade||Puzzle||0.61 MB||Click here to download|
Chessmine is a short puzzle game somewhat similar to Chip's Challenge, where you play a small heavily-pixelated character dodging through a minefield of chess pieces with the arrow keys. If the character stands on a space within the capture zone of a piece, he explodes.
There are eight rooms to explore in total, and the game automatically quits back to the desktop once you've solved the final puzzle.
|Dad Would Be Proud||David Scatliffe||Platformer||2.83 MB||Click here to download|
Dad Would Be Proud is a short one-screen platformer consisting of only a handful of levels, centered around a gimmick that would be used repeatedly by the player so that they could reach the exit located on the other side of each room. Objects and traps are introduced at a steady pace as to not overwhelm the player with too many confusing elements, but your dependency on the time manipulation ability will make it seemingly difficult to complete a stage without this particular trait.
