Pyramid, The  
Pug Fugly Games, Chris RoperShoot 'em up3.82 MBClick here to download

In The Pyramid, your objective is to guide a protective capsule through the corridors of a pyramid while shooting at any object with the intent to harm. Sacrifice your enemies to the level guardian to open a new passage in each room.

A pretty good remake by Chris Roper, with nothing less than four control options made available to the player. Plenty of additional accessibility functions have been included, such as a difficulty setting, an autofire toggle, display modes, everything but the kitchen sink apparently. Having a monster book to record your previous encounters with the denizens of the sacred tomb is a very nice touch as well.

GalPaniX  
(mature content)
D5Action/Arcade15.2 MBClick here to download

Undoubtedly one of the best Qix clones on the PC, the only drawback to be found in Gal Pani X is the use of suggestive images as backgrounds. The gameplay involves drawing lines to uncover parts of a picture while trying to avoid collision with enemy projectiles.

A player has to reveal at least eighty percent of the silhouette to complete the main objective. Most bosses have attack patterns which resemble those found in classic scrolling shooters as well. Difficult to recommend due to it's subject matter but as a freeware remake this is definitely one for the collection.

In ASCIIpOrtal you can fire up to two portals with your hand-held portal device, then enter through one before coming out of the other for some mind-bending teleportation effect. Some of the puzzles in this 2D remake of Valve's Portal include manipulating switches using blocks, placing portals on the other side of chain links, dodging boulders before they crush you, and avoiding laser fields that will burn your flesh instantly on contact.

Links to binaries for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems all available from the Cymon's Games site.

Samorost 2 by Amanita Design is a flash game that is free to play online for the first few chapters. The second half is included in the downloadable version once you have purchased it.

The developers have chosen to use graphics to portray the story, so there's practically no text to read throughout the entire journey. Most puzzles are solved by figuring out the order in which the items on screen are supposed to be clicked.

Beacon  
Chevy Ray JohnstonPlatformer3.36 MBClick 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.

Truck Dismount is a computer game made by Jetro Lauha of tAAt. The game has no other aim but to cause as much damage to the ragdoll physics man as possible. The figure can interact with ramps, a truck and a wall.

Players can sit the man in the truck, on the cabin, on the very top, or stand him in front of it. The player sets the speed of the truck and where the ramps are located, then simply lets the action unfold. Players are given points dependent on how much damage they inflict on the stick figure.

DUO  
Binary ZooShoot 'em up5.37 MBClick here to download

DUO is an excellent shooter by Binary Zoo, makers of DUOtris and Mono. Your mission is simple, destroy every sphere thrown at you in each level to progress to the next. Much like Pang, spheres will break into smaller pieces when shot. This complicate matters as they're much harder to hit every time.

Fortunately power-ups can be collected to upgrade your ship's firepower. Features a hundred levels with varying difficulty to test casual gamers and shooter veterans alike.

Clockwiser  
IshisoftPuzzle4.45 MBClick here to download

The objective of Clockwiser is basically to rotate blocks belonging to the section on the left so that they match the ones shown on the right. This can only be done by drawing rectangles and moving them along it's edges, with the pull of gravity in effect at all times.

Special blocks will be introduced at a steady pace, and there are just enough configurable options to please both geniuses and beginners. An unlimited undo feature has been included, plus the doodle city is a blast to play around with.
