Treasure Hunter Man  
BerniePlatformer3.85 MBClick here to download

Treasure Hunter Man is a freeware 2D platformer created by Bernie, featuring four dungeons with different themes to explore, a variety of inventory items to find for puzzle-solving purposes, unlockable skills, a couple of secrets, and two endings to discover.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the X key to jump, and hold the Z key to sprint once you've acquired the ability to run. Weapons are not available to you at the beginning, but can be found during the course of your adventure. The boomerang is thrown upwards or downwards by using the up or down arrow key together with Z.

Hold the up arrow key to go through a doorway or converse with NPCs. Note that you can only talk to other characters when standing next to them, and not directly behind them. You will need to acquire a sword from the dark cellar back in town before searching for a weak wall in the forest to destroy and reveal a passage to the first dungeon.

An easy difficulty setting can be accessed by pressing the left or right arrow key when the intro screen is shown, where players can choose to start the game with four hearts instead of the usual two for normal mode.

Blocksum Omake Version  
Circle infotechPuzzle32.4 MBClick here to download

Blocksum Omake Version is a puzzler with simple rules but addictive gameplay. Join a number of tiles together by using the Z key, and their corresponding number increases.

Hold the X key to move the tiles upward. Press the C key to access a pause menu. Requires the latest DirectX version to run. Unlike the original release, this version contains minor modifications to gameplay rules, removal of replay mode and exclusion of online high scores.

Menulis is the prequel to the surreal adventure game Miestas, though the puzzles here are much simpler and players do not need a walkthrough as well since the entire journey is only several screens long.

Use the left or right arrow keys to move your character around, and press the space key to interact with other objects. Push the X key to cancel your current action.

Holdover  
(mature content, nudity)
Fox EyePlatformer0.71 MBClick here to download

Holdover is a puzzle platformer in the style of the old Metroid series, where you are in control of a girl named Marie who had just woken up from a deep slumber inside an abandoned research complex. A holographic image of Marie's father informs her that she was involved in an accident many years ago, and had to be kept inside a medical treatment capsule for some time so that her organs could be regenerated by scientific means. After listening to her father's advice, she sets out to explore the complex and recover her motor skills which were impaired by her long sleep in the life chamber.

The research facility is a labyrinth of corridors, platforms and underwater sections, presumably caused by flooding in the lower levels of the building. Since you can't swim nor jump very high at the start of the game, the time in which you spent underwater will be limited to how long you can hold your breath. This is indicated by the bubble shown at the top left part of the screen, and Marie will drown when this counter reaches zero. Collecting enough blue hearts, and the ability to hold her breath underwater will improve.

Players can save their progress at any time by using the quick save slot, while maps and hints in Japanese can be accessed by clicking on the capture button at the official site. To download the game, just click on the blue button at the upper right part of the web page and a link to the zip file will appear. Take note that Holdover does have some blood and nudity in it.

Cubes  
X-0utAction/Arcade4.20 MBClick here to download

Cubes is a multiplayer-only game inspired by Nenad's Counterclockwise, which in turn was a remake of the ZX Spectrum's Knot in 3D. This version supports up to eight players simultaneously, and contains seven maps to choose from in total. Any players can host a server, while other players can find a running server using the inbuilt game browser.

The basic idea is simple, you fly forward automatically while leaving a trail behind you. Playing it for the first time can be very disorientating, since it allows only six degrees of freedom and every rotation creates a new frame of reference. The world also wraps around itself, so the entire area is quickly populated with multicoloured trails within seconds.

Destroy other players by making them crash into your trail or by shooting them down. Powerups can be collected to increase your weapon's firepower or to regain lost shield. Each game is split into rounds, and the last player left alive wins the round.

Use the W, A, S and D keys to move, and hold the right mouse button to center your view. Left click to shoot, and press the shift key to accelerate faster. Tap the Y key during a game to chat with other players.

Desktop Dungeons  
Rodain JoubertRPG3.22 MBClick here to download

Desktop Dungeon is a puzzle-based roguelike with an emphasis on resource management, where the health of your adventurer is restored by walking into unexplored rooms or corridors. You can choose to engage an enemy immediately upon finding them, or save the tougher encounters for later after you've gained some battle experience with weaker inhabitants of the dungeon first. That is basically the gist of the game, yet once you've spent about an hour or two with it you'd realize that Desktop Dungeon has plenty of complexity to offer anyone who is willing to learn the advanced strategies, bonuses and random elements that Nandrew has implemented in this gem of a time sink.

There is only one floor to play and a boss character is hiding somewhere in the area, although you can retire from your quest at any time and have the final score tabulated based on your actions and achievements. Players can switch between windowed and full screen mode using the F4 function key.

Gamma Bros  
- Windows, Mac
Pixeljam GamesShoot 'em up19.5 MBClick here to download

The name Gamma Bros sounds like a platformer but it is in fact a shooter. Use the W, A, S or D key to shoot in any of the four directions. Collect coins to purchase upgrades or health, and get close to an enemy to fire rapidly. You can change characters by touching your partner's ship when it appears on the screen.

A password save function is available, allowing players to continue from the last stage attempted. Access it by pressing the arrow keys while viewing the main menu. There's a Mac version as well.

Pylo Noveau  
Grit, OmnilithPlatformer6.14 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Pylo Noveau is a 2D platformer made with the Game Maker engine, featuring four lengthy levels to play in the first demo build released. The developer has promised four times the content in the final version, but don't let the incomplete tag discourage you from giving this game a try.

You play as Pylo, a dragon with fire-breathing ability that can be further upgraded whenever you collect a red gem. Any jewels you collect also allows you to use special powers that can either reveal secrets in a stage, heal Pylo, or even hurt enemies in a myriad of ways.

The biggest letdown of this project is the use of sound effects from other commercial releases, although if you can let that slide then there's some fun to be had here by fans of platform games.

Beneath a Steel Sky  
Revolution GamesAdventure66.1 MBClick here to download

After releasing Lure of the Temptress, Revolution decided to explore a completely different setting with its second adventure game. A bleak vision of the future was imagined, where mind control and medical science combined forces to repress the populace. Beneath a Steel Sky was made available as a free download in August 2003, with the consent and full blessings from the original development studio.
