Cho Ren Sha 68K  
Famibe No YosshinShoot 'em up0.89 MBClick here to download

Another excellent freeware shmup from Japan, Cho Ren Sha 68K will definitely please fans of the genre with it's frantic old school gameplay.

Everything you'd expect to see in a shooter is there. The high score table actually uses classic arcade shmup names!

Seizuredome is a new remake of Unholy Stage, the arena shooter released by cactus back in 2007. The objective of the game is to stay away the edge of the screen, which can be rather complicated when enemies are attempting to push you off the suspended platform at every opportunity.

Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the left mouse button to shoot. Right click for an alternate firing method, applicable to all weapons available for acquisition from vanquished enemies.

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.

Tower of Heaven is a monochromatic 2D platformer that features eleven levels to play through, originally released by Askiisoft in 2009 as a Windows-only game. This Flash port contains new musical arrangements, achievements, and a level creation system that unfortunately can only be accessed after you've beaten the game once (first-time players are allowed to import levels though).

There are now three secret locations to find (the original had two), and discovering all of them will reward you with a slightly extended ending to watch.

In Bullet Time, the goal of the game is to survive as long as you can. If things get too hectic, you can activate Bullet Time, which slows down enemy bullets long enough for you to navigate to safety. The highest rank is 'Martha', which requires you to survive for three whole minutes.

Warning: May contain potentially provocative or offensive material.

Reactor 09 is the latest AGS adventure game by Bernie in which you assume the role of a prison janitor originally convicted of murder. Much like the Monkey Island series, a verb coin is used for interaction with objects or other characters.

The story is rather short but there are four endings to discover, each with a different set of requirements to fulfil.

Fraxy is an arena shooter featuring a collection of boss fights, with an editor included to facilitate user creation as well. Use the cursor keys to operate your ship, hold the left mouse button to shoot or press the right mouse button for a temporary speed boost. The left shift key or mouse wheel can be used to swap weapons.

Energy is deducted whenever a shot is fired or the speed boost is activated. Without energy, your ship will explode. Up to five weapon slots can be fitted with your choice of arsenal using the config.exe file, with an explanation for each found in an english text manual in the same folder.

An undocumented item is the Over Soll Power boost, which can be acquired by staying in the core of a power-up item for a couple of seconds. Much like Cho Ren Sha 68k, though this upgrade is a temporary one and useful only when the ship is at full strength.

A specially designed Try mode is available for players to experience preset challenges, while the Free Play mode offers a random run or unlimited practice for experimentation.

Captain Forever

In Captain Forever, you're the captain of a ship named Nemesis, stranded in space without a single clue about your current whereabouts. Fortunately an info buoy is around to help, providing you with some information about the sector you are in and supplying repair modules to rebuild your ship.

By destroying enemy ships with your default laser weapon, you can cause them to drop ship parts that can be attached to your own ship. Additional ship plating, extra weapons and increased thruster power are just some of the benefits to be gained from salvaging intact modules.

Glum Buster  
Justin LeingangPlatformer12.8 MBClick here to download

Glum Buster is a puzzle adventure game which took CosMind four years to create with the Game Maker engine. Comparisons to Seiklus are likely, since both share more than a couple of similarities in terms of sparseness in storytelling efforts and a heavy emphasis on exploration.

The solutions to most puzzles are usually contained in the same room, although some locations may span several screens long and wide. Besides using the cursor keys for movement, you would need to interact with objects scattered around the environment quite frequently using either or both mouse buttons. Holding the left mouse button fires a red shot at whatever it is that you're pointing at, while pressing the right mouse button allows you to activate certain objects or attract them towards you.

MSOIDS is a simple arcade shooter with the mouse and keyboard implemented as part of it's control scheme. Rapid fire is activated by holding down the left mouse button, though this is only temporary as shot frequency begins to whittle down when used for a prolonged period of time. Press the enter key to start a game, and tap the space key to change colors. The W, A, S and D keys can be used to move your craft around. An online high score submission feature is included.
