Shade

Shade is a short one room game set in a cramped apartment, written by Andrew Plotkin for the 6th Annual IF Competition in 2000. In it, players find themselves packing to leave for a trip to an arts festival, but must first complete a few house chores before setting off with the plane tickets in hand. The hint system has been cleverly disguised by the author as a to-do list, which can be referred to whenever you find yourself contemplating on what action to take next.

Dyson

Alex MayStrategy26.4 MBClick here to download

Dyson is a real-time strategy game in which you must take control of an entire asteroid belt. You start as a single seedling that produces a tree on your starting asteroid. Your tree in turn produces new and unique seedlings which can be used to conquer other asteroids. However, the astro belt features up to ten AI opponents that provide fierce resistance and have their own drive for conquest. To defeat them you have to explore the strategic possibilites of the game. Eventually you can build up very large armies of 400 or more seedlings and witness some epic battles. With the exception of the music and sounds, and the font, almost all of the game content is generated procedurally.

An in-game tutorial is included to teach you the basics. The page up, page down, and cursor keys can be used to control the camera if you don't have a mouse wheel.

Dyson is created by Alex May and Rudolf Kremers, with music and sound by Brian Grainger. The game requires the .NET 2.0 Framework to run.

Veck Special Edition  
Ayden WolfShoot 'em up1.67 MBClick here to download

Veck Special Edition is the latest in a line of Geometry Wars clone for the PC. Graphics are great, the effects are mesmerizing, plus the enemy ships have their own specific behaviors and attack patterns.

Using directional firing is advised, although a joypad is still the best choice for these sort of games. You can guide your ship towards a corner to survive for the first five minutes, but it's not such a safe haven when the portals begin to appear.

A new type of enemy is introduced every minute, and your ship gets a weapon upgrade when that happens. You will be rewarded with the ability to fire hundreds of bullets per second for lasting at least ten minutes in the game. Shields automatically regenerate over time.

Canabalt

Canabalt is a simple one-button action game where you are in control of a well-dressed man who can't stop running, leaping from the top of one building to another as the city is being attacked by giant robots and futuristic-looking ships.

You can control the height of your jumps by holding down the button for a longer or shorter period. Running into obstacles will slow you down, and they could be dangerous to crash into if you need all the speed you can get to clear a long gap between buildings.

Canabalt was created by Adam Saltsman for Experimental Gameplay Project's August theme, 'Bare Minimum'.

PARSEC47  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up4.56 MBClick here to download

PARSEC47 is an attempt by Kenta Cho to recreate the addictive gameplay of classic arcade shmups with his own spin. Select either a lock or roll special weapon from the main menu by pressing the X key. Holding down the same key in Lock mode activates the ship's lasers which will home in on the enemy vessels in your sights. You're basically presented with a charged shot in Roll mode.

Progress is automatically saved every tenth level. Neat.

Zen Bondage  
Moppi ProductionsPuzzle23.2 MBClick here to download

Zen Bondage is an untimed, unscored puzzle game in which you must wrap a long cord along a variety of 3D shapes such as a turtle, snake, and rabbit. The rope itself emits a dye that colors the object. The goal is to completely change the color of the entire object, though the only reward is the gameplay itself.

Possibly one of the most useful application that a game developer could have. sfxr is a program written by DrPetter which randomly generates a sound effect based on selected options and slider settings. The results can then be saved as .wav files, ready for use in any projects.

Pasta Master  
(mature content)
Jinxtengu, Jacob Waldemar BuczynskiShoot 'em up6.53 MBClick here to download

Pasta Master is a freeware arena shooter created by Jacob Waldemar Buczynski, where players assume control of an amateur magician who goes by the name of Mr. Mingo. Besides performing tricks and magic, he is also the owner of a well-known restaurant which just happens to be chosen by demons as the perfect location for a gateway connecting earth and the netherworld. Being slightly aggravated by the whole situation, you put on your magic hat and jump right into the portal on a mission to seal this unholy passage and send the demons back to where they rightfully belong.

Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the left mouse button to shoot. Firing your lasers will drain energy quickly, shown as a numerical counter at the bottom right of the screen. Simply let go of the shoot button to replenish ammunition automatically, or grab a bottle of ketchup to increase it drastically. Shields can also be acquired to allow temporary invulnerability against one hit.

A secret game can be found by left clicking on the exposed part of the ceiling.
