Hold the left shift key to look around, and touch a wall to exit any room. Describing the game any further is equivalent to providing possible spoilers.
|Duty and Beyond ||Wandering Adventures||Adventure||4.25 MB||Click here to download|
Duty and Beyond is an AGS effort which took Wandering Adventures three months to develop, and much like Gamma Bros it features characters and objects made out of small pixel counts. You assume the role of Piet the pizza delivery guy on a quest to earn some additional pocket money during his working hours. A peculiar order takes him to a mysterious mansion with the owner nowhere to be found.
|Cursor10 ||Yoshio Ishii, Nekogames||Action/Arcade||Browser||Click here to play|
Cursor10 is a puzzler which involves directing the actions of all ten cursors and clicks, one at a time. Events will loop, but it will take at least a couple of tries to figure out a solution for all sixteen floors.
|Icy Tower ||Free Lunch Design||Action/Arcade||5.26 MB||Click here to download|
Icy Tower is another excellent release from Free Lunch Design. The story is about a homeboy named Harold, who discovers a mysterious tower that he feels strangely compelled to climb all the way to the top by jumping from platform to platform.
Movements are limited to left, right or jump. Execute a higher jump by running in one direction to gain momentum before pressing space. Chain double or triple jumps to activate combo mode and multiply your score. The screen will move upward constantly, and the game ends if you run out of platforms to land on.
The game can be customized by downloading additional characters to use from the site. Replays can be saved and shared among other players. Simple in design but extremely difficult to master.

|C.E.J. Pacian||Adventure||0.92 MB||Click here to download|
Snowblind Aces is another IF adventure game by Pacian, author of Poizoned Mind and Gun Mute. The game is linear and short, though there's plenty of conversation threads for the curious to follow and explore. A helpful hint system is accessible at any time.
|Nest of Moai ||SKT||Action/Arcade||Browser||Click here to play|
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.

|The Freecol Team||Strategy||22.9 MB||Click here to download|
FreeCol is an open version of Colonization, a Civilization-like game in which the player has to conquer the new world.
You start the game with one vessel and two colonists. In the beginning you'll be able to send ships back to Europe in order to sell the goods you've produced or to bring back some colonists. Getting colonists into the new world is an important aspect of the game as each turn takes one year and later on even one season and as a result colonies don't grow as rapidly as they do in Civilization. You can pay colonists to come to the new world or you can attempt to persuade them with the religious freedom of your people in which case they will hop on your vessels for no money at all.
Another important aspect is trade, the source of all income apart from Inca and Aztec gold. In a land filled with precious resources it is important to build your colonies at the right location and to place crafstmen where they belong. This is not only to have an income but also to be able to live off the land when you can no longer count on the support of Europe.
Through all this you'll have to decide whether or not you want to live next to the native americans peacefully. They can teach your colonists new skills that cannot be taught anywhere else and they will offer you goods in case you choose to treat them as your friends. On the other hand, their villages can be attacked and their valuable goods can be taken from them and sold in Europe.
Other European forces are also busy occupying their piece of the new world. Should their borders go too far then take over some of their colonies by force because they wouldn't hesitate to do the same thing to you.
The object of Colonization is to declare your independence and survive an attack of the King's forces. Before declaring your independence you need to have the majority of the people behind you. This can be done by promoting free speech and by providing a strong governmental system.
|Ikachan ||Pixel||Action/Arcade||0.15 MB||Click here to download|
Ikachan has been largely ignored by many due to the Japanese text, but finally a proper English version was recently released and made available for download. This translation is much better than the one that has been making it's rounds, with most of the storyline kept intact and understandable.
The game itself is a nice little underwater exploration number that won't take more than an hour or two to solve. Fans of Cave Story certainly wouldn't be disappointed with one of Pixel's earlier work.
|Shade ||Andrew Plotkin||Adventure||Browser||Click here to play|
Shade is a short one room game set in a cramped apartment, written by Andrew Plotkin for the 6th Annual IF Competition in 2000. In it, players find themselves packing to leave for a trip to an arts festival, but must first complete a few house chores before setting off with the plane tickets in hand. The hint system has been cleverly disguised by the author as a to-do list, which can be referred to whenever you find yourself contemplating on what action to take next.
