rRootage  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up4.21 MBClick here to download

rRootage is an abstract scrolling shooter game created by Kenta Cho, with Mac, Linux, and PSP ports also available. The game features four modes, each one based on a different shooter.

Normal Mode: This mode is similar to most standard shooter games. The player has three bombs that cause the enemy's bullets to dissolve. The ship also slows down while firing its beam.

PSY Mode: Based on the game Psyvariar, this mode is probably the oddest of all four of them. First off, the player gets powered by scratching enemy projectiles, the player moves at a slower speed while firing and when the player's powerbar is full, the player's ship becomes invincible for a short amount of time. The player can also spin the ship which causes the area around the ship where bullets are scratched to increase, but the ship slows down.

IKA Mode: Based on the game Ikaruga, this mode allows the player to switch between white and black. When your ship turns white, similarly-colored projectiles reflect at the enemy, and vice versa with black. This mode tends to be the easiest of the four because you only have to dodge half the enemy's bullets at any given time, and also because the half that you don't have to dodge end up doing extra damage when you collide with them.

GW Mode: Based on the game Giga Wing, this mode gives the player a shield that reflects shots fired by the enemy and protects the player, but it has a lengthy charge time.

The game has the player fight a large boss. The boss changes form each stage, and there are five stages for each of forty levels per game mode. Stages cannot be played separately, but any level in any mode may be played without playing the lower-sequenced levels.

Frogatto is a freeware 2D platformer which stars a frog that can swallow and spit out enemies as projectiles. At the beginning of the adventure you'll discover that his reach is rather short, but the coins that you collect along the way can used to purchase upgrades that'll increase the length of his tongue.

The game features six distinct areas with thirty levels split between them, and you can use magical pedestals to teleport yourself to the start of any location that you have previously explored. You'll want to open any treasure chests that you find as well, since some of them carry life capsules or huge coin bonuses. Depending on how thorough you are when searching for secrets and hidden areas, playing the game from start to finish could take up to a couple of hours.

Clockwiser

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.

Prototype

Don't be misled by the name, Prototype is no half-finished effort. Featuring a pod that you can use to direct your shots, the game only showcases one level but it's long enough satisfy most shooter veterans.

Tubopac  
Bloody MonkeyAction/Arcade2.61 MBClick here to download

Not content with the excellent Smash TV homage, Bloody Monkey had set their sights on a Sierra classic to remake. Tubopac is the result, with updated graphics and faster gameplay to delight fans of the original. Your objective is basically to collect all oil pellets in each level to advance, Pac-Man style.

There's a boss fight, bonus stages, a save function and difficulty setting thrown in. Everything but the kitchen sink, as they say. The only problem with this polished production is that it's rather short in length.

Fraxy

(external link)

Fraxy is an arena shooter featuring a collection of boss fights, with an editor included to facilitate user creation as well. Use the cursor keys to operate your ship, hold the left mouse button to shoot or press the right mouse button for a temporary speed boost. The left shift key or mouse wheel can be used to swap weapons.

Energy is deducted whenever a shot is fired or the speed boost is activated. Without energy, your ship will explode. Up to five weapon slots can be fitted with your choice of arsenal using the config.exe file, with an explanation for each found in an english text manual in the same folder.

An undocumented item is the Over Soll Power boost, which can be acquired by staying in the core of a power-up item for a couple of seconds. Much like Cho Ren Sha 68k, though this upgrade is a temporary one and useful only when the ship is at full strength.

A specially designed Try mode is available for players to experience preset challenges, while the Free Play mode offers a random run or unlimited practice for experimentation.
