Halo Zero
DobermannAction/Arcade20.6 MBClick here to download

Halo Zero is an excellent action game in the style of Contra and Metal Slug series, with a little Abuse thrown in for weapon aim. Play the role of Master Chief as you partake in more dangerous missions, but fear not all the weapons from the original has been translated faithfully to the 2D version.

The sprites are large and closely resembles their counterparts from the hit FPS, animation is smooth and you can actually drive a warthog in the game. A recommended effort if not for the use of licensed characters.

Originally a game for the Spectrum, the Head Over Heels remake by Graham Goring and Tomaz Kac is faithful in every way but with new graphics to entice a new generation of gamers.

The player is required to alternate between two characters often in order to solve perplexing puzzles, each with their own special skills and abilities. Head can jump twice as high and fire doughnuts, while Heels is able to carry objects using a bag.

Hero is another brainchild of Daniel Remar that attempts to recreate the feeling of playing early console hits. Featuring two colors, six levels, eight MIDI songs, and some bonus features if you manage to beat the game.

Plays a bit like Metroid.

Hero Core  
Daniel RemarAction/Arcade2.41 MBClick here to download

Hero Core is a Metroid-style action shooter that tells the story of Flip Hero, on a mission to destroy his nemesis Cruiser Tetron for the final time. But before taking on the machine warlord in his hideout, there's a bit of exploring to do since every weapon, item or suit upgrade found will actually assist you in completing the main and secondary mission objectives.

The first few rooms act as a tutorial that teaches new players about their suit and weapon controls, the autofire feature, progress saving, and the teleportation ability that warps your hero to a save point previously visited. Because of its non-linearity, you can choose to fight the end boss whenever you want, although players are advised to power-up both their main weapon and suit by at least a couple of levels before tackling that last challenge.

It takes about two hours to explore the entire map in the main story campaign, but there are also other bonus modes to try out, while the hard difficulty offers a completely different gameworld to explore.

Hero Quest
Kevin MulkaAction/Arcade1.52 MBClick here to download

Hero's Quest is a tribute game of sorts by Kevin Mulka with ripped music and blocky sprites, but does have decent Gauntlet-like gameplay. Use the arrow keys to move around, and tap the W, A, S or D quickly to attack once you've acquired a weapon in hand.

Three game modes are included, each with a different challenge to complete.

HitBlock Final
Georg RottensteinerAction/Arcade2.44 MBClick here to download

HitBlock Final is a decent remake of Crillion with updated graphics and adjustable difficulty among other options. The objective of the game is basically to break all destructible blocks using the perpetually moving ball. The player has to change the color of the ball often, avoid steel, collect keys and more, depending on the level requirements.

The gameplay may be archaic but anyone who enjoyed the classic will be delighted with this remake.

Hold Off Brownish-Yellow
Ted LauterbachAction/Arcade2.17 MBClick here to download

Hold Off Brownish-Yellow is a remake of an old game by Matt Thorson called Hold Off Red, where you have to destroy enemies before they reach the heart that lies at the center of the screen. You can only shoot in eight different directions, and there's a fair bit of waiting for enemies to wander into your aim before you can fire at them.

Once you've acquired a certain score, the upgrade menu will appear for you to improve your weapon or buy an extra health slot for the heart. You can only choose one of the three available upgrades every time, so you'll have to plan ahead if you want to survive past the first couple of waves while having a weapon that is powerful enough to fend off the bigger enemies.

Holiday Hills
Free Lunch DesignAction/Arcade0.54 MBClick here to download

Holiday Hills is a pretty good reinvention of SkiFree, though this time your character rides a toboggan and there are presents to collect for bonus points. Use the arrow keys to steer, or press the alternate and enter key at the same time to access the full screen mode.
