|Shift 4 ||Antony Lavelle||Platformer||Browser||Click here to play|
In Shift 4 you're in control of an astronaut whose ship was attacked by a giant squid, forcing our protagonist to make an emergency landing at the closest planet. Waking up to find your family members missing, you decide to explore a deserted facility nearby and search for clues about their current whereabouts.
This particular episode is a little more challenging than previous releases, since players are required to switch between two or more characters often to solve some of the harder puzzles. New gameplay elements such as gravity and contact-sensitive switches are introduced at a steady pace, which is a boon considering that the map is a lot less linear and there is a bit of backtracking to do as well.

|musagi ||DrPetter, Tomas Pettersson||Application||2.07 MB||Click here to download|
Musagi is a fairly sophisticated music editor and synthesizer which is more polished than most shareware or commercial products available in the market. The program comes with a broad range of instruments, from predefined retro sounds that can be customized to a MIDI interface and a WAV sampler.
Even if you're not a composer and do not hook up your musical instrument to record tunes on your PC or use the keyboard to play them, you can ignore the more advanced sound-editing features and start composing a nice melody right away.
Be sure to read the text file in the documentation folder, then check out the nicely written step-by-step tutorial that will guide you in composing your very first tune. - Lim-Dul
|String Theory ||Dillon Cower||Action/Arcade||3.31 MB||Click here to download|

The scrolling speed and screen size can be altered by editing a text file.
|Pyramid, The ||Pug Fugly Games, Chris Roper||Shoot 'em up||3.82 MB||Click here to download|
In The Pyramid, your objective is to guide a protective capsule through the corridors of a pyramid while shooting at any object with the intent to harm. Sacrifice your enemies to the level guardian to open a new passage in each room.
A pretty good remake by Chris Roper, with nothing less than four control options made available to the player. Plenty of additional accessibility functions have been included, such as a difficulty setting, an autofire toggle, display modes, everything but the kitchen sink apparently. Having a monster book to record your previous encounters with the denizens of the sacred tomb is a very nice touch as well.
