Typhoon 2001  
Thorsten KuphaldtShoot 'em up3.09 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Anyone familiar with Tempest would definitely be interested in Thorsten's Typhoon 2001. Use the left and right arrow keys to move the ship around the stage, and hold the space key to shoot. A superzapper can be used by pressing the enter key. Avoid spikes when warping to the next level.

Not a standard vertical or horizontal shooter but quite simply one of the best freeware Tempest remake yet. Ace, indeed.

Poyo  
Lazrool, LazraelPlatformer4.22 MBClick here to download

From the wonderful world of Game Maker comes Poyo, a new platforming adventure which took Lazrael only one month to complete. You control the main character using the arrow keys, but most of the puzzles in the game can only be solved by figuring out the proper way to utilize your warp ability. Tap the X key to jump and use the Z key in conjunction with a directional arrow key to dash past traps or activate switches.

Press the down arrow key while standing in front of another creature to start a conversation. Instructions are printed on a text file which can be found in the zip package.

The F4 key can be used to switch between windowed and full screen mode. Features forty-five levels and six boss encounters.

YaruharaAdventure7.72 MBClick here to download

Soup ver 0.9 is a production loosely based on LSD, a trippy dream recollection available only on the Playstation console. Choose the first option to play in full screen mode. A different part of the adventure is unlocked for each new game attempted by the player.

Hold the left shift key to look around, and touch a wall to exit any room. Describing the game any further is equivalent to providing possible spoilers.

Soul of Dracula, The

The Soul of Dracula is a 2D platformer inspired by the Castlevania series, featuring appearances from mainstays such as Death and the Count himself in the role of level bosses. You play as a vampire hunter who must venture into the Dark Prince's castle and defeat him using only your whip and the familiar array of magical weapons at your disposal.

Though many of the enemies had appeared in monsieur Belmont's adventures before, the developer of this tribute project had included a couple of twists and surprises that will please even the most hardcore of Castlevania fans out there.

NaaC  
Bloody MonkeyAction/Arcade10.6 MBClick here to download

NaaC is a pretty good Smash TV clone with all the action focused in one room for the entire game. Aliens will barge through walls from the top of the screen, then left and right. Fortunately better weapons occasionally appear out of thin air, although ammo conservation is vital since they run out pretty fast.

Guru Logic Champs  
Ian PricePuzzle0.56 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Guru Logic Champs is originally a puzzler developed by Compile for the Game Boy Advance, which was also remade by PopCap under the name of Pixelus. There are usually several white spaces and immovable blocks in each stage. These blocks are the only objects which can stop the movement of the pieces that you shoot out of your cannon.

The main objective is to place these pieces on the designated areas indicated by the white squares. Pieces shot out of a cannon will continue sliding until they hit another block. Some tile manipulation skills are required as the number of blocks assigned to you is just enough to complete each level.

These pieces can be retrieved at any time by pressing the down arrow key, providing that the route is clear to do so. The board can be rotated by pressing the Z or X key. Use the page up and page down keys to browse puzzle sets when the puzzle selection screen is shown.

Only eighty puzzles are accessible in this version. The game was developed using BlitzMax, but will work under both XP and Vista operating systems.

Crayon Physics  
Petri PurhoPuzzle5.63 MBClick here to download

Crayon Physics is the latest experimental project by Petri Purho, showcasing a gameplay element right out of the recent arcade favorite Chalk. Draw squares to guide the red ball towards the stars to complete each stage, with challenges usually requiring the placement of bridges, weights or elevation objects around the landscape.

Press space to reset the current level, or use the alternate and F4 function key to play in full screen mode.

Yume Nikki  
KikiyamaAdventure41.9 MBClick here to download
(external link)

In Yume Nikki (Dream Diary), you're cast as a young girl living in a small apartment. There is very little to do in your room, but fall asleep and an entire dream world is yours to explore. The Z key can be used to interact or gain new effects. Certain locations beyond each door may yield more than one effect for the player to discover. Press 9 to wake yourself up. Use the desk in the room to save your progress, and hold the escape key for more than two seconds to exit the NASU console game.

Acquiring the bicycle, lamp and knife should be at the top of your list, as these items will double your character's speed, light up dark areas and allow basic attack moves to be executed. Nearly all locations are wrapped around, hence walking in one direction endlessly will always bring you back to the starting point.

Installation instructions are provided in the zip file. Dream Diary does have a proper ending.
