Vacant Ark  
BusterShoot 'em up9.83 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Vacant Ark is a strange departure from standard horizontal shooters, featuring excellent sprite designs by Buster but employing a slightly awkward gameplay system. You can only store and use up to six bullets at any time, although this supply can be replenished by collecting blue gems from vanquished enemies.

You lose all your energy stock if an enemy bullet grazes your on-screen character. A life is lost if you have no energy left when receiving damage. Your pod can also turn enemy bullets into gems when not in use for a few seconds.

Each end level boss requires a different strategy to beat. Some weapons are more effective in certain situations. You can only progress to the next zone if none of the bosses escape.

Every Extend

(external link)

OMEGA's Every Extend is quite the departure from standard shoot 'em ups. The objective of the game is to detonate your ship in the midst of your adversaries. Enemies appear in random patterns, hence positioning and timing are both important in setting off a huge chain reaction and earning a healthy combo bonus. Every time this ability is used, one extend is deducted from your total although it's possible to replenish this counter by getting high scores for each detonation.

Charlie's GamesShoot 'em up9.18 MBClick here to download

Space Phallus is a retro horizontal shooter with a naughty theme, created by the author of Bullet Candy. Here you pilot the disembodied head of a dog, fighting against hordes of enemies in the shape of unmentionable body parts with only an assortment of three weapons at your disposal. Thankfully these weapons can blow away anything that stands in your path, just as long as you use them wisely and sparingly.

There are three stages to play in total, with levels two and three accessible by pressing the 2 or 3 key on your keyboard when the main menu is shown. The game features an online high score table, a special guest appearance by General Custer himself, and is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.

Mondo Medicals  
cactusAction/Arcade2.96 MBClick here to download

Mondo Medicals could be described as an illogical puzzle game played from a first person view, with plenty of bizarre elements. Most of the levels are designed to confuse you, and the solutions aren't always that easy to figure out. Move around with the arrow keys and press Z to interact with stuff. There are in game instructions, but they might not be that easy to interpret. There are eight levels total.

Warning: Contains strong language and flashing images which may cause photosensitive epileptic seizures.

Battle double decker busses, diggers and handbags unleashed by the alien hordes, all armed to the teeth with laser beams and raging with beastly intent of killing the player. Invoke the spirit of light entertainment by shooting sad clouds to clear the arena and earn yourself some space to breathe.

Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the Z key to shoot. Bullets and laser beams should be avoided at all costs. Destroy a cloud at the right time to activate the Brucey bonus.

Strange Adventures in Infinite Space  
- Windows, Mac
Digital EelStrategy7.87 MBClick here to download

Digital Eel's Strange Adventures in Infinite Space is a space exploration game in which you play an unemployed space pilot, hired by a smuggler to embark on a dangerous ten-year mission in the Sector Prime system. Your employer is willing to part with handsome rewards for any discoveries that you find during this dangerous journey, but return to him late and you will be charged extra in ship rental costs.

The map is randomized every time you play, and interplanetary travel is initiated by left-clicking on a nearby star and pressing the engage button. Your ship can only travel in a straight line, and flying through the Purple Void nebula will only slow you down even further.

Combat is conducted in real-time, with information about the current ship selected shown on the left side of the screen during a space battle. The green bar indicates your shield status, which recharges automatically during combat. The orange bar shows your ship's condition, and when this gauge runs out the ship is pretty much reduced to space debris.

Both the Windows and Mac versions of SAIS are now available as free downloads, and there are a bunch of mods that can be applied to change your ship's appearance, the types of aliens populating the system, and even the effects of new artifacts that you can find during your adventure in space. Some mods like Red Planet and Even Stranger Adventures in Infinite Space act as full-fledged conversions as well, offering a new storyline, GUI and alternate objectives for the players to achieve.

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.
