|Stair Dismount |
- Windows, Mac, Linux
|Jetro Lauha||Action/Arcade||2.19 MB||Click here to download|
Stair Dismount is a computer game made by Jetro Lauha of tAAt. It is a physics game where the goal is maximising the damage done to a 3D stick figure. The player causes damage by briefly applying a force to the figure to make it fall down a staircase.
The stick figure's falls are accompanied by various sound effects - cracks, wails and groans - as it makes its way to the bottom. Stair Dismount uses ragdoll physics, so the figure is very floppy as it falls, like a ragdoll.
The game was first published in Assembly 2002, where it won the first prize in the game development competition. The newest version, 1.0.3, is available for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
|Squid Yes! Not So Octopus! ||Oddbob||Shoot 'em up||6.24 MB||Click here to download|
Squid Yes! Not So Octopus! is an arena shooter created by the developer of War Bus and the Tempest-inspired G-Force. Alien robots from the planet Thwip are invading the home of a mutated radioactive squid, so you must assume control over this deadly creature and drive back the invasion with your patented beams of electro death.
You earn a point for every minute you survive in the game. The enemy assault last a whole eight minutes, and if you manage to make it past that point then the aliens will concede defeat and return to their homeworld, allowing you to have your cup of tea in peace and serenity once again.
|Lethal Application ||Daisessen||Action/Arcade||148 MB||Click here to download|
Lethal Application is a 2D action game that introduces a unique gameplay system for moving your character around each stage. Instead of a jump button that most players are accustomed to, we have here a weapon so strong that its recoil effect can propel the protagonist in the opposite of her shot direction.
Using the weapon does deplete your energy resources, which fortunately can be replenished by collecting items marked 'E' scattered around the area. Press the Z key to shoot and the X key to activate your special move. You can swap special moves by pressing the C key but only after acquiring its corresponding power-ups.
The game was originally sold as a commercial doujin title, but was later released as a free download on the developer's official site. There are ten stages to play in total, although this count doesn't include the boss battles that await the player after every one or two normal levels beaten. You might also need to have the Japanese language pack installed on your Windows operating system to be able to run this game.
|Virtual Silence ||Virtanen Games||Action/Arcade||2.80 MB||Click here to download|
Virtual Silence is an action game where the player takes control of a young boy named Jason, who has to sit through a series of experimental tests in a virtual world under the watchful eyes of his caring mother and an unnamed doctor. Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the X key to shoot. Press the Z key to change the scenery, and tap the enter key to skip dialogue. The game has multiple endings.
|Counterclockwise ||Nenad||Action/Arcade||7.07 MB||Click here to download|
Counterclockwise is a perfect demonstration of the quality of entries submitted to the Retro Remakes competition this year. Essentially Tron in 3D, this remake puts you in a ship that leaves a trail during flight. Your basic objective is to destroy enemy chasers, either by shooting at them or using the EMPs supplied.
Ammunition is limited, but it's possible to replenish them by collecting power-ups or executing tricks. These special moves can be practiced in a special trick trainer section. A multi-player is currently being developed, although the online high score table has already been implemented in the current version.
|Jumper 3 ||Matthew Thorson||Platformer||8.44 MB||Click here to download|
Jumper 3 is the much-awaited sequel to Matt's series of frustratingly difficult platformers, where players will once again be able to assume control over Ogmo as he traverse and explore over fifty levels' worth of challenges while acquiring new abilities along the way.
Use the S key to jump or select a menu option. Press the A key to cancel a selection or use a special ability, and hold the space key to restart a level. Full screen mode can be enabled from the options menu.
|Octodad ||DePaul University Student Team||Action/Arcade||337 MB||Click here to download|
Octodad is a third person adventure game about destruction, deception, and fatherhood. The player controls Octodad, a dapper octopus masquerading as a human, as he goes about a day of his life. His existence is a constant struggle, as he must master mundane tasks with his unwieldy boneless tentacles while simultaneously keeping his cephalopodian nature a secret from his human family.
|Digital: A Love Story |
- Windows, Mac, Linux
|Christine Love||Adventure||34.2 MB||Click here to download|
Digital: A Love Story is an interactive fiction game created by Christine Love, presented through Bulletin Board Systems that you can visit and read using an operating system interface which mimics those found in computers from the late 1980s. At the start of your adventure a message in your inbox offers a phone number for you to dial up and log into your first BBS, and once you're familiar with the set of applications on your virtual desktop the tasks of replying to messages and initiating conversations with strangers can all be done with just the click of a button.
Though there's quite a bit of text to read in Digital: A Love Story, the game won't take longer than an afternoon to play through. The control scheme is admittedly clunky (e.g. you can't use the Enter key to submit a phone number, although it works when you're transferring codes), but persevere and you will be rewarded with an absorbing experience that no other game from this day and age can offer.
|rhacp ||Crostar||Action/Arcade||8.13 MB||Click here to download|
rhacp is a brilliant variation of Snake by Crostar, a regular 3Punge competition participant and also the creator of Round and Round. This particular effort uses 3D models, but retains much of the gameplay elements from the original.
The objective of the game is basically to swallow other enemies which resemble shorter versions of your creature. If any of them touches other parts of your snake's body besides the head, mines will begin to appear from the end of it's tail. Touching these mines causes the current game to end instantly.
The number of enemies to eliminate in order to progress is shown at the upper left side of the screen. Collecting all round objects will make every mine in the vicinity disappear, clearing your way when the area is getting a little too crowded.
Only the arrow keys are used to control movement. Press the Z key to start from any level. Continues are unlimited.
|Yume Nikki ||Kikiyama||Adventure||41.9 MB||Click here to download|
In Yume Nikki (Dream Diary), you're cast as a young girl living in a small apartment. There is very little to do in your room, but fall asleep and an entire dream world is yours to explore. The Z key can be used to interact or gain new effects. Certain locations beyond each door may yield more than one effect for the player to discover. Press 9 to wake yourself up. Use the desk in the room to save your progress, and hold the escape key for more than two seconds to exit the NASU console game.
Acquiring the bicycle, lamp and knife should be at the top of your list, as these items will double your character's speed, light up dark areas and allow basic attack moves to be executed. Nearly all locations are wrapped around, hence walking in one direction endlessly will always bring you back to the starting point.
Installation instructions are provided in the zip file. Dream Diary does have a proper ending.
