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.

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.

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.

Burn the Trash  
cactusShoot 'em up1.61 MBClick here to download

Burn the Trash is a freeware vertical shooter created by cactus, and again this developer impresses everyone with his creativity and coding skills. This time around your ship is equipped with extremely destructive weapons, but as usual the enemies are no easy targets either.

Hold the Z key for a standard beam, or press the X key to clear bullets caught in your blue beam's path. Use both keys together for a special attack which causes massive damage, but use it with care as this weapon tends to overcraft and may destroy your craft altogether. An online high score submission feature is included.

Nest of Moai

Japanese developers are pretty obsessed with Moai statues. Nest of Moai is basically an entire game based on the objective of touching these strange structures with your mouse cursor.

Move your cursor over as many statues as possible in thirty seconds, although these tiny little guys will attempt to make matters difficult by popping up in odd places. Large statues require some rubbing, but they do contribute quite a bit to your score.

A House in California

A House in California is a surreal, narrative game about four characters who bring a house to life. These four characters are based the developer's relatives (two grandmothers and two great-grandmothers). The game is inspired aesthetically by Mystery House, developed in 1980 by Roberta and Ken Williams. But whereas Mystery House is a mystery story about greed and murder, A House in California is more like an Imagist poem about family and memory.

Treasure Hunter Man  
BerniePlatformer3.85 MBClick here to download

Treasure Hunter Man is a freeware 2D platformer created by Bernie, featuring four dungeons with different themes to explore, a variety of inventory items to find for puzzle-solving purposes, unlockable skills, a couple of secrets, and two endings to discover.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the X key to jump, and hold the Z key to sprint once you've acquired the ability to run. Weapons are not available to you at the beginning, but can be found during the course of your adventure. The boomerang is thrown upwards or downwards by using the up or down arrow key together with Z.

Hold the up arrow key to go through a doorway or converse with NPCs. Note that you can only talk to other characters when standing next to them, and not directly behind them. You will need to acquire a sword from the dark cellar back in town before searching for a weak wall in the forest to destroy and reveal a passage to the first dungeon.

An easy difficulty setting can be accessed by pressing the left or right arrow key when the intro screen is shown, where players can choose to start the game with four hearts instead of the usual two for normal mode.

Bloxorz is a puzzle game which involves shuffling a piece of block across a suspended maze. The objective is basically to get the block to fall through a square hole at the end of each stage, all the while trying to avoid falling off the edges.

The player will be introduced to switches, bridges, tiles which responds to different pressures and even teleporters to complicate matters. Later on, smaller blocks are introduced to increase the overall difficulty of each puzzle.

There are thirty-three stages to complete.
