Karoshi 2 is the sequel to the similarly titled platformer by Jesse Venbrux, creator of the Wubly series and Frozzd.

Press the Z key to jump. R key restarts, and the escape key quits.
The developer had also included a level editor and Karoshi 1 speed run mode, where players would have to complete close to thirty stages from the original in under seven minutes. Hold the R key in stage fourteen to access the secret room.
|Photopia ||Adam Cadre||Adventure||0.62 MB||Click here to download|
Photopia is a piece of literature by Adam Cadre rendered in the form of interactive fiction, and written in Inform. It is regarded as a pioneer in narrative-driven, rather than puzzle- or challenge-driven, interactive fiction, and is perhaps the most successful example of this genre to date. It won first place in the 1998 Interactive Fiction Competition.
Photopia has few puzzles and a linear structure, allowing the player no way to alter the eventual conclusion but maintaining the illusion of non-linearity. This gives weight to some of the story's motifs - questions of free will and determinism.
|Legend of Princess, The ||Joakim Sandberg||Platformer||9.56 MB||Click here to download|
The Legend of Princess is a 2D platformer created by the developer of Chalk and the Noitu Love series, where players get to step into the shoes of a tunic-wearing hero on a quest to rescue a kidnapped princess. As with most of Joakim's releases, there are plenty of memorable boss encounters to be had here.
Note that the game has only one playable level, although arcade veterans could technically replay the entire adventure at a higher difficulty setting by choosing a different set of starting equipment with each new try. Also, the chances of getting a rare blue or red gem increases if you defeat more enemies and avoid getting hurt too frequently.
|Untitled Story, An ||Matthew Thorson||Platformer||19.3 MB||Click here to download|
An Untitled Story is a shareware platformer which was recently released as freeware by Matt Thorson, developer of the popular but frustratingly hard Jumper series. The game world is expansive but players with anything less than incredible reflexes would find it difficult to progress very far, since most of the challenges revolve around precision jumps and a knack for perfect timing.
Switching between full screen and windowed mode is only possible once a new profile has been created. Press the space key to bring up a pause menu, then choose the options tab to find this well-hidden feature.
|MSOIDS ||cactus||Shoot 'em up||2.78 MB||Click here to download|
MSOIDS is a simple arcade shooter with the mouse and keyboard implemented as part of it's control scheme. Rapid fire is activated by holding down the left mouse button, though this is only temporary as shot frequency begins to whittle down when used for a prolonged period of time. Press the enter key to start a game, and tap the space key to change colors. The W, A, S and D keys can be used to move your craft around. An online high score submission feature is included.
|Specter Spelunker Shrinks ||Ken Grafals||Platformer||Browser||Click here to play|
Specter Spelunker Shrinks is a Unity-based platformer in which you overcome obstacles and challenges by growing or shrinking the size of the main character. There are regular checkpoints scattered around the level to save your progress from time to time, although players won't be utilizing them too much as the entire adventure can be completed in half an hour or less.

|Amanita Design||Adventure||Browser||Click here to play|
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.
|Dustin Gunn||Action/Arcade||6.53 MB||Click here to download|
Sombreros is an arcade shooter made for Arthur Lee's Action 52 remake challenge, where you play as a Mexican gunslinger who has to retrieve a couple of giant hats from the bad guys. Ammo is unlimited in the game, and you can also call upon your sombrero power to pause time and mark enemies for a round of quick fire shots. Doing this depletes your sombrero gauge, but you can replenish it by collecting hats from defeated outlaws.
You won't just be shooting at henchmen throughout the entire game. There are a number of occasions where you have to duel with one or more gunslingers, and some levels have doors that you have to break down before you can proceed. The obligatory boss fights are there as well, featuring gang leaders who can take more damage than the common criminal.

An English tutorial is also included to assist beginners in learning the basics of solving puzzles.
