Dash and the Stolen Treasure
Red Sharks TeamAction/Arcade166 MBClick here to download

Dash and the Stolen Treasure is a platform game inspired in Jak and Daxter's series, Mario and Crash Bandicoot, developed from scratch by a group of five students from the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain. You play as Dash, the world's most most famous pirate, who is also ironically afraid of water. His treasure has been stolen by the band of blind shark pirates known as the Unknown, so he sets out to get his revenge and recover all of his coins and gems.

Along the way you'll get the chance to save some baby sea urchins, play baseball with the octopuses, and meet a crazy cast of loony and funny creatures on the ancient island that the thieving pirates are hiding at.

Dash de Leilei
EasyGameStationAction/Arcade15.0 MBClick here to download

Dash de Leilei is an action game by EasyGameStation featuring characters from Capcom's Darkstalker universe. The objective is to guide the protagonist as she makes her way to the end of each level before time runs out.

Six items are presented at the start of each game. You can use the sword to destroy most of the obstacles, though timing your jumps are more important. Pressing the X key when you're on top of a platform will launch your character airborne for a short while. Crashing into rotating plates or mines slows Lei Lei down.

The same developer was responsible for Gunners Heart, DuoPrincess and Ele Paper Action as well. Unfortunately the trial version only showcases two levels.

De Toren
Kevin OkeAction/Arcade9.07 MBClick here to download

De Toren is a delightful puzzle platformer from the developer of Lightmare and Consumer Culture, where the player's objective is to reach the top of a tower safely with at least the minimum amount of points required to clear a level. Floor sections which you have stepped on will light up, but backtracking will deduct a small percentage from the combo indicator that you are building up on. Keeping the combo count high is important, because time is of the essense and there are only so many floor sections to walk on in every stage.

The game features eighteen floors to play in total.

Dear Agent  
(mature content, nudity)
cactusAction/Arcade1.79 MBClick here to download

Dear Agent is a short 2D platformer with a unique concept. The objective here is to neutralize the terrorists and destroy all of their equipment before you're allowed to the next level, but players never have enough ammunition or explosives to complete their tasks. The solution here is to use the surroundings and terrain to their advantage, for example blasting away the containing area of a lava and letting the fiery liquid flow towards your enemies, hence killing them instantly and saving you from needlessly using your limited starting equipment.

Destraction Desire
YewAction/Arcade20.8 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Destraction Desire is an excellent fighting game made by Yew using Enterbrain's 2D Fighter Maker 2k2, so the usual control option applies.

A manual is included in the extracted folder, and a list of moves is available as well. The first table explains which action is assigned to each key, with the first letter in bold. Columns in the character's table shows the name of the move, input command and gauge consumption from left to right.

Although featuring only five characters, they have plenty of moves at their disposal. One of the female characters can even switch between two sets of basic moves, shown by the color of the flames. To switch, just press the Drive key although this will consume one point from your DD gauge.

Two game modes are included, survival and versus. No option to change difficulty level or music volume as well.

Eleven characters were originally planned, but work has been abandoned due to unknown reasons. Still, it's an excellent freeware fighting game that is worth the download.

Dig Dug Aftershock
Sebastian JaniszAction/Arcade5.32 MBClick here to download

Dig Dug Aftershock is a pretty good tribute to two of the best drilling games in history, in which you assume the role of Taizo on a quest to rescue your best friend by eliminating all enemies in each of the ten stages.

Puzzles involving boulders aren't particularly fun but there's enough weapons in this effort to experiment with, and thankfully a save game function has been included since some exits can be rather deep. The only fault to be found in this production is a minor joystick detection issue, which shouldn't deter fans of the original to give it a try. A 256 color version was released for users who encounter performance problems.
