Shift 4

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.

Crimzon Clover

Crimzon Clover is truly a wet dream for shoot 'em up fans. Though labeled as a trial version, this vertical 2D shooter sports a generous three full levels to play, jaw-dropping graphics, a limited shop section for unlockables, and the obligatory yet awe-inspiring boss fights.

In addition to your primary weapon, you can hold down the second shot button to target enemy ships, then release the key to fire homing beams at them. Collecting stars increases your special gauge, and when you press the C key it will either activate the bomb or your ship's break mode, depending on how much of the bar has been filled.

Note that the continues that you purchase from the shop can only be used once.

Under the Garden  
Paul GreasleyPlatformer10.4 MBClick here to download

Under the Garden is a sandbox-style exploration game set in a harsh winter environment, where supplies are limited and resources such as food and lumber for your fireplace have to be gathered from the land. Here you'll learn how to hunt, mine for valuable items, cut down trees for wood, and construct buildings or bridges out of bricks and boxes.

You can use a fireplace to save your game, but to do so you'd have to keep it lit with more firewood from the forest. There are quite a few safehouses to find in the wilderness, and many of them have their own individual fireplaces that you can utilize as checkpoint locations. Standing next to a fireplace also restores any stamina lost through constant exposure to bad weather conditions or injuries.

Photopia  
Adam CadreAdventure0.62 MBClick here to download

Photopia is a piece of literature by Adam Cadre rendered in the form of interactive fiction, and written in Inform. It is regarded as a pioneer in narrative-driven, rather than puzzle- or challenge-driven, interactive fiction, and is perhaps the most successful example of this genre to date. It won first place in the 1998 Interactive Fiction Competition.

Photopia has few puzzles and a linear structure, allowing the player no way to alter the eventual conclusion but maintaining the illusion of non-linearity. This gives weight to some of the story's motifs - questions of free will and determinism.

Akuchizoku  
cactusShoot 'em up8.53 MBClick here to download

Akuchizoku is a horizontal shooter created by cactus, featuring three playable levels, two difficulty settings, three different pilots and two gameplay modes. The difficulty setting adjusts the number of bosses and enemies you would have to face in battle.

Hold the Z key to shoot, and press the X key to launch a missile. Tap the C key to activate your special weapon, though this move is limited to one use per ship.

Only one pilot is available in story mode, but any level and pilot can be selected in free play mode.

GalPaniX

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.

Ghosts of Aliens

Ghosts of Aliens is a full-length RPG which has been in production for nearly an entire year, featuring music by one of the developers credited with creating the post-cyberpocalyptic basketball epic, Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. Playing as the ghost of an alien named Atum, the story tells the tale of this restless soul who is given another chance at life, granted that he undertakes a quest to defeat the five Doom Beasts and save the world of Appalathia.

Use the Z key to run or select a menu option, and press the X key to cancel a choice or bring up your inventory screen. Press the left alt and enter key at the same time to switch between windowed and full screen mode. Progress can be saved at any time.

Combat is mostly negligible, as enemies encountered during the early part of the game only requires two hits or less before surrendering to you. Bosses can be easily defeated using your strongest Magle, while Quencheleth are readily available for purchase from item shops located in towns scattered all over Appalathia. There is however one particular dungeon that will most likely cause excruciating frustration, since entering this area inside a tree will end your adventure in less than two seconds if you're not equipped with the Mark IV blocker. In here, players would have to be mindful of their steps as well, as touching traps would pretty much wipe out all party members without warning.

Ghosts of Aliens isn't without faults and bugs, but anyone who is willing to persevere might find a couple of pleasant surprises to be had with this adventure. The RPG Maker 2000 Font Patch can be used to fix font display problems, but note that the program doesn't come with an uninstaller.

1213 Episode 1

YahtzeeAdventure4.66 MBClick here to download

1213 Episode 1 is the latest game released by Yahtzee, as he continues to push the limitations of an aging AGS engine. Not content with Galaxy of Fantabulous Wonderment, he has created a platformer with some adventuring bits that combines the best elements of Prince of Persia, Another World and Flashback with a touch of horror thrown into the mix.

Follow the story of an imprisoned amnesiac as he seeks to escape from his captor, a mysterious figure who addresses his prisoner as a number, hence the title. Like Mechner's classic, the protagonist can jump and climb ledges by pressing Space or pushing the up arrow key.

You're armed with a gun that can be fired repeated by holding down the TAB button. There is a bit of inventory management involved as your character can only carry a single item at any one time. A tutorial has been worked into the story seamlessly so you can get a feel of the controls without even noticing it.
