Epsilon  
EONPuzzleBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Epsilon is a puzzle game which requires the act of manipulating time and space to solve each level. Your main objective is to collect all tokens to activate the exit portal, achieved by guiding the energized orb around the stage using two handy wormholes.

The first five modules basically serve as a helpful tutorial on changing the position of wormholes, pausing the game to plan your next move, turning back time using the X key, utilizing gravity fields to change the direction of the orb, and even employing ghost rooms to determine the outcome of every act of teleportation. There are fifteen stages to complete in the final module.

G-Force  
(mature content)
OddbobShoot 'em up11.1 MBClick here to download

G-Force is a brilliant remake that plays very much like a flat 2D Tempest, in which enemies rain down from the top of the screen in an attempt to crash into your ship. Press the Z or Y key to shoot, and tap the X key to activate the special weapon.

Only two directional arrow keys are ever needed, and use of the superzapper is only allowed once in each level. Playing hints can be found in the same forum thread, though simple strategies can be formulated after a few plays. Highly recommended for a quick fix.

FreeCol

The Freecol TeamStrategy22.9 MBClick here to download
(external link)

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.

Teppoman 2  
IkikiPlatformer1.57 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Teppoman 2 is a 2D action platformer that puts you in control of a caped assassin with a craving for bananas, specifically the brown-coloured ones which can only be found inside a heavily-fortified base under the command of a white-hooded man.

Our trained killer has a number of specialized skills that could be used to navigate around traps and silence unsuspecting enemies, plus he can also utilize all manner of ranged weapons when the situation calls for it. Players have to learn how to execute dash, wall jumps, reverse jumps, glide, body surf, and more if they plan to make it further into the enemy's fortress.

There is a boss battle in every fifth stage, and you're only allowed to continue playing after beating the boss challenge if you manage to meet the banana collection requirements. For example, to pass the fifth level you would need to have five bananas in your possession, and playing level eleven and onwards require a minimum of fifteen bananas.

Desktop Dungeons  
Rodain JoubertRPG3.22 MBClick here to download

Desktop Dungeon is a puzzle-based roguelike with an emphasis on resource management, where the health of your adventurer is restored by walking into unexplored rooms or corridors. You can choose to engage an enemy immediately upon finding them, or save the tougher encounters for later after you've gained some battle experience with weaker inhabitants of the dungeon first. That is basically the gist of the game, yet once you've spent about an hour or two with it you'd realize that Desktop Dungeon has plenty of complexity to offer anyone who is willing to learn the advanced strategies, bonuses and random elements that Nandrew has implemented in this gem of a time sink.

There is only one floor to play and a boss character is hiding somewhere in the area, although you can retire from your quest at any time and have the final score tabulated based on your actions and achievements. Players can switch between windowed and full screen mode using the F4 function key.

Protoganda: Strings  
cactusShoot 'em up2.74 MBClick here to download

Players start out with three minutes of play time in Protoganda. Defeating a boss awards an extra fifteen seconds, while getting your ship blown up deducts forty. If the timer reaches zero, you lose.

In Shield mode, press the Z and X key to repel bullets. A charge shot can be used by holding the X key, and targeting is automatic.

Absorb mode is a replica of Ikaruga's gameplay mechanics. Switch colors to turn invulnerable agains bullets of the same color. Touch a bullet to absorb it, and increase the destructive power of your charge shot while replenishing a bit of time in the process. More damage is done if your bullets of the opposite color connect with the enemy. Press the C key to release a charged shot.

There are two separate online highscore tables for both modes. The bosses name are selected from a list of fifty most common Russian family names.

DUO  
Binary ZooShoot 'em up5.37 MBClick here to download

DUO is an excellent shooter by Binary Zoo, makers of DUOtris and Mono. Your mission is simple, destroy every sphere thrown at you in each level to progress to the next. Much like Pang, spheres will break into smaller pieces when shot. This complicate matters as they're much harder to hit every time.

Fortunately power-ups can be collected to upgrade your ship's firepower. Features a hundred levels with varying difficulty to test casual gamers and shooter veterans alike.

Nest of Moai  
SKTAction/ArcadeBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

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.
