Nomltest FS

Nomltest FS is one of the best Space Invaders clone you'll ever play, although you won't think it likely from looking at the screenshot. Although the graphics are nothing special, what makes Nomltest FS unique and addictive are the cool gameplay modes. Best of these is the 'eat bullet' feature. You can 'eat' enemy bullets by capturing them, and holding down both shoot keys expands your eat radius (although slowing you down). Shooting bigger enemies are worth more points, but you can get huge bonus points from clearing whole waves of smaller enemy ships.

While the graphics is not much to look at, the gameplay is very fast and furious, and the music is quite catchy.

Instructions/walkthrough

A Game with a Kitty 2: Darkside Adventures  
BerniePlatformer14.7 MBClick here to download

In A Game with a Kitty 2: Darkside Adventures, you take on the role of an Arch-Chancellor on a quest to retrieve the lost crown, which equates to plenty of jumping and throwing stuff around.

The protagonist of the story can use the stars collected as weapons, but his inventory capacity will only allow up to thirty of them to be stuffed into his deep pockets. Special skills are awarded for surviving boss encounters, though certain jumps are pretty difficult to execute properly. The game consists of only four major locations in total, with an average of four to five short levels assigned to each.

There are several tough puzzles to figure out but nothing too perplexing with a bit of thought. Needless to say, a recommended download for fans of classic NES titles especially the Mario series.

Think Under Defeat, but with 2D sprites. Demolition Gunner: In Search and Destroy was originally developed for a three minute gameplay competition, then turned into a complete production featuring seven stages and obligatory boss encounters.

These battles last only twenty seconds each, so there won't be much of a struggle beating them assuming that you're good at dodging an insane number of bullets. Press the Z key to shoot, or hold the X key for a few seconds before releasing the button to launch a napalm bomb. Click on the first link after the title to download.

Zugya DX  
Chinchilla SofthouseShoot 'em up7.91 MBClick here to download

Zugya DX is an excellent shooter from Chinchilla Softhouse that can be described as Robotron: 2084 in space. Arrow keys control the ship's movement, and your shot direction is locked when you hold down the X key. Pressing the C key will activate your plasma charge, which is basically a short moment of invincibility.

Your main targets are the space stations which you have to destroy by shooting at it's core. It won't be easy as they're usually protected by substations equipped with all sorts of defensive weapons. Some of the substations carry power-ups which you can collect to boost your spread shot.

When the game starts, click on the joypad tab, input patch and the largest button to configure default keyboard controls.

Saintrooper  
YamotoAction/Arcade2.14 MBClick here to download

Saintrooper is a challenging exploration platform game that takes place mostly under water, where your character has to swim up for air often or collect oxygen tanks to prevent from losing valuable hearts. The game ends if you run out of lives, but players can always continue playing from the last level attempted by using the stage select option shown after the control selection menu.

One key feature of the game is that you have the ability to grab on to walls and climb upwards by jumping off a vertical surface. You can shoot in four different directions, and acquiring the special power-up item will temporary increase your firepower and oxygen reserves. By firing downwards during a freefall, it is even possible to reduce the falling speed and soften the impact of your landing.

There is an exit to be found somewhere in each level, but to get there you would first have to find a set of keys and unlock the doors that prevent you from reaching them easily. Leaving treasures uncollected might not be a good idea either, since extra lives are given out generously whenever you've scored a certain amount of points during your rescue mission.

kdice  
Ryan DewsburyStrategyBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

A browser-based multiplayer strategy game for seven players, kdice was originally based on Taro Ito's Dice Wars. Gameplay is similar to Risk with the primary goal of the game being to control every territory on the map.

kdice is played on a randomly-selected map with twenty-eight to thirty-one territories. At the start of a game, territories are randomly divided among the players and a random number of dice representing armies are stacked on each territory. A player is then randomly selected to go first.

The objective is to control every territory on the map, accomplished by attacking other players' territories. Players can only attack territories that are adjacent to their own. When an attack is started, the game will roll the dice of each territory and compare the results. If the attacking player has the higher number, he wins control of the territory. All but one of the dice from the attacking territory are then moved to the defeated territory. Otherwise, the attacker does not gain control and the number of dice in his stack will reduce to one.

At the end of the turn, the player receives a number of dice equal to the largest number of contiguous territories he controls, and the dice are placed randomly throughout the player's territories. A scoring system ranks users based on dominance throughout the game in addition to place.

Acidbomb 2: Rearmed  
Vertigo Games, Mr. ChubigansPuzzle24.6 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Acidbomb 2: Rearmed is the latest puzzler by Mr. Chubigans, developer of Vivid Conceptions and Sandbox of God. Much like it's prequel, your objective is to defuse bombs in multiple locations by using advanced deduction skills and quick thinking.

Beams of light can be moved around to reveal the number of pistons underneath each line of tiles. Just like Minesweeper, you can left click to mark a tile as safe or right click to designate one as a piston. The number of pistons in each level is displayed on the top right of the screen. Press the enter key to reduce the countdown to ten seconds.

It is recommended to play the original Acidbomb before attempting it's successor. Made with the intention to distribute over the Playstation Network via Playstation 3.

Lyle in Cube Sector  
BogosoftPlatformer1.44 MBClick here to download

Lyle in Cube Sector is a platformer that is reminiscent of the classic Metroid series in more than a few ways. Exploration is a key element in this game, as you seek out the culprit responsible for the kidnapping of Lyle's lovable kitten.

The protagonist starts off with no possession or special skills, but will soon acquire the ability to pick up blocks and use it to eliminate enemies or jump twice as high. Things begin to unravel pretty quickly once you have learnt a trick or two, plus there are many rooms to explore and secrets to discover.

Don't be put off by the retro graphics, this is one quality effort that fans of classic platform games should not miss.
