Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire  
AGD InteractiveAdventure85.4 MBClick here to download

In Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire, our hero travels to the land of Shapeir to undertake the dangerous mission of saving not one but two desert cities. This is AGD Interactive's third Sierra adventure game remake after the release of King's Quest 1 and 2 VGA.

The 1990 version was rather unforgiving at times, as the entire adventure happens in one month but many puzzles can only be solved on certain days. The AGDI team has done much to alleviate the problems that hampered players from completing their quest with the inclusion several new features.

All conversation topics are now shown on screen instead of requiring guesswork using a limited text parser interface found in the original. Combat now feels less sluggish thanks to the processing power of modern day computer systems and extra frames of animation. Graphics, backgrounds and sprites have more colour than their classic counterparts, although deserts and alleyways still look as dull as ever.

Try running the game in windowed mode or choose a resolution of 640 by 400 for full screen if the default settings do not work at first. Due to AGS limitations, games saved under one display setup cannot be used for other configurations.

Nanaca Crash

Many had proclaimed that Nanaca Crash to be the most addictive browser game of all time, and they just might be right. There is something very enticing about crashing into the main character, sending her sky high and attempting to get her to land as far as possible from her starting point - only to have it repeated at the whim of the player for their amusement and betterment of their previous best effort.

The game remains popular until this day, and no proper list of the best browser games can should even come close to excluding this gem of a time waster.

As you wander through the world of PlayPen, clicking from picture to picture by depressing your left mouse button whenever you find an interesting text prompt hidden in the images, you visit places, people, ideas and imaginings created by other players. Sometimes a text prompt will include the words 'Draw new page'. If you follow one of these prompts, you'll find yourself looking at an empty image and a simple set of drawing tools. This is your opportunity to get creative.

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.

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.

Saucelifter is a brilliant Choplifter remake featuring vector graphics for enemy vehicles, turrets and buildings. Press the Z or C key to shoot in either direction, or hold the X key to aim downwards. The landing gears will appear automatically when your ship approaches the ground.

The aim of the game is basically to grab up to eight hostages at any one time and transport them to the teleporter on the right. Land right next to it and they will exit the ship and walk onto the platform automatically.

Paul was also one of the developers involved in the Sword of Fargoal remake.

As 1213's journey comes to an exciting conclusion, Yahtzee holds nothing back to deliver the promised end barely days after releasing the second episode.

To recap, 1213 Episode 3 is the third in a series of continuing stories about a mysterious amnesiac who seeks freedom from his imprisonment. The game does have a few shortcomings but overall it's an adventure not to be missed.

(external link)

Garden of Coloured Lights is a new vertical shooter by Linley Henzell, creator of Excellent Bifurcation and the popular Dungeon Crawl. This version features three levels, each with a different theme and end level boss. Sound effects are implemented in a very unique manner, in which every shot fired triggers a different sound based on their colours.

There are plenty of options to choose from, though your ship can only be equipped with a maximum of three. Some requires a cooling period to recharge, while others can be fired constantly with no penalties whatsoever. Weapons are upgraded by using them repeatedly, as represented by gauges shown at the top left of the screen.
