A Death Foreordained
Micheal LawrenceAction/Arcade1.26 MBClick here to download

A Death Foreordained is another entry in RPGDX's Lofi RPG competition, the same contest which featured Sophie Houlden's The Linear RPG. Here you play as an agent who must travel back in time and join forces with the local resistance group to assassinate a political figure. The rebels have ordered two of their finest soldiers to follow you on your mission, doing their utmost to help you take out any enemy units encountered during infiltration.

Note that you can shoot at enemies using the W, A, S and D key.

A Time to Warp
Scott NelsonAction/Arcade13.0 MBClick here to download

A Time to Warp is an interesting effort developed by Scott Nelson for the Acoders Indie Game Making Competition 2004. The objective is to collect colored orbs in a certain order, shown on the bottom left of the screen.

Crates have to be shot at using the space bar to reveal the orbs contained inside. Brown orbs should be avoided, while white orbs can be collected for an extra life. Each stage is presented to the player differently, depending on the year you're currently in.

A to B Basset

A to B Basset is an arcade game created by Adam Lobacz for a friendly TDC competition, where players get to drag a Basset Hound around the rooms of an old house in an attempt to reunite the puppy with its favorite red ball.

A magic crate will only appear once you've collected all ice creams in each area, while the exit is unlocked by placing the crate at the location marked by a red arrow.

There are only six stages to play in total.

A7Xpg
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesAction/Arcade3.77 MBClick here to download

A7Xpg is another gem among many by Kenta Cho, although the gameplay would surprise a few people because technically it's not a shooter. The objective of the game is to collect all the gold bullions found in each level and avoid crashing into any of the enemies. The task could have been carried out at a leisurely pace if it wasn't for the fact that you have to complete the stage before the allocated time runs out. A timer is shown on the top right of the screen that will count down the number of seconds left.

Your ship is equipped with a boost function that can be used repeatedly, although this may work against you especially when the playing field is overcrowded with hostile units.

Like other ABA titles this is one to add to your collection.

Aces High Over Verlor Island
Martin CrownoverAction/Arcade5.42 MBClick here to download

Aces High Over Verlor Island is a 3D top-down arcade shooter where you pilot a biplane, and compete against other people online or take on three different challenges. A few special maneuvers are at your disposal, and various power-ups occasionally appear in order to help you stay in flight.

Each of the three single player modes has an online high score board set up so that you can compete against others, and you can also compete directly with people in dogfights of up to eight people at once.

Action Cyborg

John KarlgrenAction/Arcade2.77 MBClick here to download

Action Cyborg is a short action game by John Karlgren with four playable levels, though it's quite unlikely that more will be added in the near future since the original artist has left the project.

Speech can be turned off by using the options menu. Press the Z key to jump, or hold the X key to shoot. Switch weapons with the 1, 2, 3 and 4 keys. No continues, but there's a cheat for level skip in the text manual if you're having difficulty with the game.

Action Fist  
Beau Blyth, TeknogamesAction/Arcade5.53 MBClick here to download

Action Fist is a 2D action platformer that features both single and two-player co-op gameplay modes, multiple weapon power-ups, frequent checkpoint locations, and the usual array of boss fights that require some thought and strategy to defeat. Switching weapons and the wall jumping ability does take a bit of getting used to, but once you've played past the first level these actions should come just as naturally as shooting and jumping in the game.

Though an easy mode exists in Action Fist, you definitely won't feel challenged at all by anything other than the Normal and Hero difficulty settings.

Adrenaline
Adrenaline TeamAction/Arcade5.69 MBClick here to download

Adrenaline is a freeware multiplayer top-down shooter created with the Game Maker engine, featuring a wide variety of weapons to use, four different gameplay modes and support for user-created maps in addition to the official maps that comes with the download. The game also includes plenty of graphical settings that can be tweaked to accomodate slower computers, a single-player mode with bots, and even stat tracking for registered Reflect users.

Besides your standard ranged weapon, you can also swing a knife for melee attacks or throw grenades to hurt other players. The frequent disconnections and lags could disrupt your enjoyment of it, but if you are looking for a multiplayer deathmatch game that is free to play then Adrenaline might fit the bill nicely.

Aether
Edmund McMillen, Tyler GlaielAction/Arcade19.7 MBClick here to download

Aether is a new collaborative effort by Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel, where players get to see the a small part of the universe through the eyes of a young dreamer as he ventures into space on the back of his newfound friend.

The game involves using your pet's tongue to grab onto clouds or asteroids, swinging from one planet to another in search of new locations to explore. Restore the color back to each planet by solving the puzzles unique to every location before returning to Earth to complete your journey.

A standalone version is available for download as well, which should work faster on older computers.

Aetherzap
Jph WacheskiAction/Arcade2.83 MBClick here to download

Aetherzap is a rather loose remake of an old Midway arcade classic entitled SpaceZap, featuring an updated control scheme and a mind-numbing soundtrack to assault your auditory senses.

Use the arrow or W, A, S, D keys to launch an attack in any of the four available directions. Enemy patterns begin to vary as the game progresses, while your base is rebuilt automatically after some time. Collect green pulsating dots for bonus points.
