|PlayPen ||Farbs||Adventure||Browser||Click here to play|
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.
|Cave Story |
- Windows, Mac, Linux
|Pixel||Platformer||0.88 MB||Click here to download|
Cave Story is a freeware sidescrolling platformer title created by Daisuke Amaya, art-name Pixel. You control a cute little amnesiac who runs around helping out these rabbit-ish creatures called Mimigas while trying to find your way out of the giant cave inside the floating island which makes up the game's setting.
You can expand your health meter by collecting Life Capsules in similar fashion to Metroid games, while you can get stronger by collecting energy to boost your firearms' output. Each weapon can be built up to the maximum level fairly quickly, but taking damage will drain energy from its experience meter, sometimes causing it to level down. Given how quickly they power up this only tends to be an issue during boss fights, and even then there's usually plenty of opportunities for collecting more weapon energy.
The game has loads of secrets, too. For a freeware Japanese platformer, it's fairly lengthy and has quite a large amount of text. We're also talking three very different endings, plenty of plot, and quite a cast of charming characters. It really is a superb little gem.
|Space Funeral ||thecatamites||RPG||45.8 MB||Click here to download|
A departure from his usual AGS offerings, Stephen's Space Funeral is a role-playing game created using the RPG Maker engine. The story is about a man named Phillip, who is on a journey to reach a place called the City of Forms.
You get to recruit only one travelling companion during the entire adventure, meaning that there is very little party management and individual character stats to worry about here. The exercise of grinding for experience is also kept to a minimum, and you can beat the final boss even before either of your party members reach level twenty or above.
The game takes about two hours to play from start to end, but you have to remind yourself to save often because there are no inns or checkpoints to record your progress for you. Should the random encounters becomes tedious over time, players can also use the auto option to have battles resolved for them automatically.

There are plenty of easter eggs to be found, and some are hinted at the end of each adventure. Fans of the original certainly won't be disappointed with the extras.
|Seiklus ||cly5m||Platformer||2.58 MB||Click here to download|
Seiklus is a puzzle platformer with an emphasis on exploration. There is no dialogue or literary exposition of the plot. The game consists of loosely connected areas that the player has to explore, collecting both items to help on the way and floating wisps of various colours, which should optimally be all obtained. Seiklus has no weapons and no violence. There are various hostile lifeforms in some areas, but at worst they only set you back a little. It is impossible to lose or get stuck.

|Rom Check Fail |
- Windows, Linux
|Farbs||Action/Arcade||2.52 MB||Click here to download|
Rom Check Fail is a new action game from the developer of Fishie Fishie and Polychromatic Funk Monkey. Players have to clear the screen of all enemies to complete each level, but the task is made a little more difficult by the random switching of gameplay rules where ideas are recycled and remastered as an odd mix of arcade or console classics from the past.
Use the arrow keys to move. The space key acts as an action button. Press the left alt and enter key to switch between full screen and windowed mode. The game has twenty stages in total.
|Paroxysm ||Tom Vine||Platformer||1.72 MB||Click here to download|
Paroxysm is a platformer by Tom Vine which is reminiscent of the early Prince of Persia series. Guide an unnamed explorer deeper into a dangerous maze, as he seeks to find an exit among the traps and dangers laid out with the intent to end the adventures of many brave explorers.
Slightly frustrating at times but the difficulty can be adjusted to your liking.
|Torus Trooper ||Kenta Cho, ABA Games||Shoot 'em up||6.02 MB||Click here to download|
In Torus Trooper, you pilot a ship through a tunnel chasing after other enemy pilots in a race against time. Every level is split into two sections, and progress can only be made after defeating a number of ships and one mid-level boss.
As mentioned earlier, there's a strict time limit and the only way to replenish it is by defeating bosses or reaching certain scores. It's a good idea to keep pressing the up arrow key to accelerate, because your shot strength increases as you go faster.
Enemy bullets might seem a little difficult to dodge compared to other Kenta Cho's efforts, but this is where he tops himself again. You can slow down with nice grinding effects by pressing the X key. Holding down this button actually charges your special shot that can be unleashed to absorb harmful projectiles, destroy enemy ships in it's path and gain more bonuses as well.
