Nobody Shooter  
0relShoot 'em up0.10 MBClick here to download

Nobody Shooter is a remake of Jonathan Mak's Everyday Shooter, where players would have to collect coins from the enemies they've defeated to acquire enough points for an entry in the high score table. Hold the W, A, S or D key to shoot in any direction, and use the cursor keys to move your ship around.

There is only one level to play. Your final score is submitted online automatically once the song ends, as indicated by a progress bar at the bottom of the screen. The game window can be moved around by dragging the uppermost area where a title bar should be located at.

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

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.

Prototype  
X-0utShoot 'em up19.1 MBClick here to download

Honeyblaster  
LowFuelShoot 'em up2.77 MBClick here to download

Honeyblaster is the latest release from the low key game development team LowFuel, though they have been quite prolific in other areas such as the demo scene and design related work. This particular demo features three levels with a colored background option included for players who are not keen on playing the game in it's original black and white format.

Each stage has it's own setting and offers a variety of enemies to blast at, but undeniably the Doom tribute level was designed to impress the most.

Streemerz Flash  
The Podunkian, Arthur LeePlatformerBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Streemerz is a remake loosely based on an Action 52 game with the same name, featuring new art and music resources from Arthur Lee and Binbag McGraw. The story is now set sometime in the future, although the main character still uses streamers to scale walls or climb onto platforms. There are plenty of checkpoints for players to save their progress with, but they could be a few rooms apart by the time you're close to completing your mission.

Note that a load game option isn't available, so if you exit back to the main menu or quit the game you would have to replay the entire story mode from the beginning.

Iji  
Daniel RemarAction/Arcade28.0 MBClick here to download

Iji is an action platformer which took Daniel Remar four years to make, where players assume control of the titular character as she learns how to cope with waking up to find her world taken over by an alien race. Guided by her brother who speaks through the research complex's loudspeaker system, she has to find a way to convince an alien leader to retreat and save humankind from total annihilation.

Iji's skills can be upgraded by acquiring nanofields left behind by the aliens, then spent on cyborg stations to increase any of her seven basic stats. You can only acquire a maximum of five nano points per sector, and one nano point is awarded whenever your nano gauge reaches its limit.

Progress is saved automatically after the completion of each Sector, but not before boss fights. This is also one of the very few games which offers multiple storyline paths in relation to how much the player resorts to violence when dealing with the adversities they face. There are ten sectors to play through in total, not inclusive of the secret levels which can only be unlocked once certain requirements have been fulfilled.
