|DUOtris ||Binary Zoo||Puzzle||4.64 MB||Click 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.

|Seiklus ||cly5m||Platformer||2.58 MB||Click here to download|
Seiklus is a puzzle platformer with an emphasis on exploration. There is no dialogue or literary exposition of the plot. The game consists of loosely connected areas that the player has to explore, collecting both items to help on the way and floating wisps of various colours, which should optimally be all obtained. Seiklus has no weapons and no violence. There are various hostile lifeforms in some areas, but at worst they only set you back a little. It is impossible to lose or get stuck.
|Pylo Noveau ||Grit, Omnilith||Platformer||6.14 MB||Click here to download|
Pylo Noveau is a 2D platformer made with the Game Maker engine, featuring four lengthy levels to play in the first demo build released. The developer has promised four times the content in the final version, but don't let the incomplete tag discourage you from giving this game a try.
You play as Pylo, a dragon with fire-breathing ability that can be further upgraded whenever you collect a red gem. Any jewels you collect also allows you to use special powers that can either reveal secrets in a stage, heal Pylo, or even hurt enemies in a myriad of ways.
The biggest letdown of this project is the use of sound effects from other commercial releases, although if you can let that slide then there's some fun to be had here by fans of platform games.

|Opera Omnia |
- Windows, Mac
|Stephen Lavelle, increpare||Puzzle||4.58 MB||Click here to download|
In Opera Omnia you play a state historian who is charged by his politician friend to come up with convenient theories about migration in the past. Basically, you have to think backwards: if people were in this city during a plague, and if plagues reduce population, that means that they had to have had a lot of people in order to survive that plague: thus, plagues actually increase population if you work backwards in time.
The challenge of each level is that you're given something to prove -- such as prove that 300,000 people lived in this city a long time ago -- and you adjust migration patterns that will show how 300,000 people could have lived in that city a long time ago.
The gameplay may be a bit hard to "get" at first, and a lot of the people I've recommended the game to had a hard time wrapping their mind around the concept, but if you do manage to do it you'll find it a clever gameplay mechanic and some interesting challenges unlike most other games. There's also a pretty well-written story over the span of its 20 levels. - Paul Eres
|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.
