FreeCol

The Freecol TeamStrategy22.9 MBClick here to download

FreeCol is an open version of Colonization, a Civilization-like game in which the player has to conquer the new world.

You start the game with one vessel and two colonists. In the beginning you'll be able to send ships back to Europe in order to sell the goods you've produced or to bring back some colonists. Getting colonists into the new world is an important aspect of the game as each turn takes one year and later on even one season and as a result colonies don't grow as rapidly as they do in Civilization. You can pay colonists to come to the new world or you can attempt to persuade them with the religious freedom of your people in which case they will hop on your vessels for no money at all.

Another important aspect is trade, the source of all income apart from Inca and Aztec gold. In a land filled with precious resources it is important to build your colonies at the right location and to place crafstmen where they belong. This is not only to have an income but also to be able to live off the land when you can no longer count on the support of Europe.

Through all this you'll have to decide whether or not you want to live next to the native americans peacefully. They can teach your colonists new skills that cannot be taught anywhere else and they will offer you goods in case you choose to treat them as your friends. On the other hand, their villages can be attacked and their valuable goods can be taken from them and sold in Europe.

Other European forces are also busy occupying their piece of the new world. Should their borders go too far then take over some of their colonies by force because they wouldn't hesitate to do the same thing to you.

The object of Colonization is to declare your independence and survive an attack of the King's forces. Before declaring your independence you need to have the majority of the people behind you. This can be done by promoting free speech and by providing a strong governmental system.

Iwanaga  
BusterAction/Arcade11.1 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Iwanaga is an action game that is reminiscent of arcade classics like Cabal and Blood Bros., in which the player has to dodge swarms of bullets while shooting back at enemies at the same time.

Hold the Z key to shoot, and use the X key for special moves such as double jumps or dash. The default control scheme can be switched easily during combat.

Items are collected automatically when your character isn't shooting at enemies. Orange items restore health, while blue ones increase your secondary weapon charge and time limit. Swap between both weapons by pressing the X and down cursor key.

Bullets can be slashed by tapping the Z key rapidly, This only works on projectiles with a purplish tinge and not the ones which are blue in color.

There's a certain balance to maintain as shots weaken after prolonged use, so switching weapons regularly can be vital to maintain health and increase the time limit. A small hit point will appear when the Z key is held down.

The final boss requires a certain strategy to beat, and much like Buster's Vacant Ark multiple endings are included for each difficulty setting. Use 7-Zip to unpack the files, and JoyToKey for joypad support.

The Journey Down, Chapter 1: Over the Edge  
Theodor WaernAdventure122 MBClick here to download

The Journey Down, Chapter 1: Over the Edge is a point-and-click adventure game that tells the story of Bwana and his friend Kito, two individuals who run a gas station but were forced to find other means of making money when the power company threatens to cut their electrical supply off. Fortunately at about the same time a young woman arrives at your doorstep looking for a book, and she willing to reward you handsomely should you be able to help her out with an errand.

Anyone familiar with classic LucasArts games should feel right at home with the controls here. Left clicking on any interactive object examines or operates it, inventory items are located at the bottom of the screen, and moving your cursor towards the top of the window displays the options menu.

You can press the period ('.') key to skip parts of a dialogue quickly, or use the escape key to end an in-game cutscene immediately. Note that there is only one save slot to use, and you might need to fiddle with the setup.exe file a bit to get the game looking as gorgeous as the screenshots posted at the official site.

OddbobShoot 'em up5.84 MBClick here to download

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

War Bus is a frantic arena shooter by Oddbob that presents the player with a choice: shoot or be shot. With just the one life at your disposal and the odds stacked against you both in the number of enemies and with the eye-popping visuals, you'll need all your wits to survive.

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.

musagi  
DrPetter, Tomas PetterssonApplication2.07 MBClick here to download

Musagi is a fairly sophisticated music editor and synthesizer which is more polished than most shareware or commercial products available in the market. The program comes with a broad range of instruments, from predefined retro sounds that can be customized to a MIDI interface and a WAV sampler.

Even if you're not a composer and do not hook up your musical instrument to record tunes on your PC or use the keyboard to play them, you can ignore the more advanced sound-editing features and start composing a nice melody right away.

Be sure to read the text file in the documentation folder, then check out the nicely written step-by-step tutorial that will guide you in composing your very first tune. - Lim-Dul

Guardian of Paradise  
BusterRPG5.19 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Guardian of Paradise is a fun little Zelda-ish game by Buster, who you may know as the creator of Akuji the Demon. GoP casts you as Tela, a boy whose sister has fallen ill. Nobody knows what's wrong with her, so there seems to be no cure, but legends tell of healing waters in Paradise, so Tela sets out to find the fabled land and save his sister. He encounters elemental spirits along the way, which provide magic, and the basis for the game's puzzle system.

Please download and apply the english translation patch over the original file as well.

Untitled Story, An  
Matthew ThorsonPlatformer19.3 MBClick here to download

An Untitled Story is a shareware platformer which was recently released as freeware by Matt Thorson, developer of the popular but frustratingly hard Jumper series. The game world is expansive but players with anything less than incredible reflexes would find it difficult to progress very far, since most of the challenges revolve around precision jumps and a knack for perfect timing.

Switching between full screen and windowed mode is only possible once a new profile has been created. Press the space key to bring up a pause menu, then choose the options tab to find this well-hidden feature.

ro9  
Justin SmithRPG1.41 MBClick here to download

ro9 is a turn-based role-playing game in which you get to control the actions of nine different characters at the same time, using only one set of controls for all. The objective here is to get all of your heroes down to the ninth and last level of the dungeon to loot the treasure, although you can still win if some of them succumb to their injuries before reaching the goal.

There are three types of monsters in each level. Humanoids are easy to defeat, while animals or creatures take a couple more shots to kill. Bosses are the strongest, and will take quite a beating before they drop an ankh. Collecting an ankh resurrects all rogues that died on the same dungeon level.

The basic strategy here is to win enemy encounters and increase your level before proceeding down the stairs, indicated by the number of yellow squares inside the window of each hero. The red outline that surrounds each view shows the amount of damage a character has taken, and players are advised to look for a health potion if it starts to turn bright red.

Gunroar  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up5.24 MBClick here to download

Gunroar is a vertical shooter created by Kenta Cho, where players assume control over a ship on a mission to sink as many enemy ships as they can for scoring purposes.

There are four play modes on offer, including one which allows you to steer two ships at the same time. You can switch between a concentrated shot or spread fire by alternating between the Z and X key. Move your ship closer to the top of the screen to travel upstream faster. Mouse mode is recommended for players who do not own a dual analog joypad, since it offers enough flexibility in directing your weapon aim.
