The Crypts of Despair is a new release from the creator of Death Worm, though with a lot less action than it's famous counterpart.

Arrows can be used for range attacks if a bow is bought from the shop. Press the C key to enter the aim mode.

Fans of roguelike games will enjoy this tiny little dungeon romp quite a bit. There are thirty levels to explore in total.

Underside, The  
The Podunkian, Arthur LeePlatformer7.76 MBClick here to download

The Underside is an exploration-based action platformer in the vein of games like Castlevania, Metroid, and Cave Story. However, unlike most other games in this genre, the gameplay is driven more by plot than by free-roaming exploration.

Graphics and engine are completely original. The plot revolves around a character named Ip who must escape from the underside, and prevent the world from being destroyed while he's at it. Characters, plot strands, and dialogue are heavily inspired by Earthbound, and are quirky, whimsical, and sometimes a little strange as well.

Dino Run  
Pixeljam GamesAction/ArcadeBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

In Pixeljam's Dino Run, players are transported back in time just moments before a giant asteroid crash lands and wipe out the entire dinosaur population on Earth. As a velociraptor seeking sanctuary from the impending doom, your objective is to run towards the end of each level as fast as you can, preferably before the wall of doom envelops you.

Power-up plants can either give your dino a temporary speed boost or invulnerability. Hold the shift key to run twice as fast, but only when sparks are coming out of the raptor's feet. Press the S or down arrow key to attack other dinos or grab a quick bite. Eggs can be collected to earn continues, while acquiring super eggs and reaching game milestones will reward the player with DNA to distribute on improving your raptor's abilities. One DNA is awarded for every eight eggs found and every eight critters eaten. Bones are used to unlock new speedruns and downloadable rewards in the options menu.

Dino Run also features multiplayer, chat room support and customizable skins plus hats.

Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up4.21 MBClick here to download

rRootage is an abstract scrolling shooter game created by Kenta Cho, with Mac, Linux, and PSP ports also available. The game features four modes, each one based on a different shooter.

Normal Mode: This mode is similar to most standard shooter games. The player has three bombs that cause the enemy's bullets to dissolve. The ship also slows down while firing its beam.

PSY Mode: Based on the game Psyvariar, this mode is probably the oddest of all four of them. First off, the player gets powered by scratching enemy projectiles, the player moves at a slower speed while firing and when the player's powerbar is full, the player's ship becomes invincible for a short amount of time. The player can also spin the ship which causes the area around the ship where bullets are scratched to increase, but the ship slows down.

IKA Mode: Based on the game Ikaruga, this mode allows the player to switch between white and black. When your ship turns white, similarly-colored projectiles reflect at the enemy, and vice versa with black. This mode tends to be the easiest of the four because you only have to dodge half the enemy's bullets at any given time, and also because the half that you don't have to dodge end up doing extra damage when you collide with them.

GW Mode: Based on the game Giga Wing, this mode gives the player a shield that reflects shots fired by the enemy and protects the player, but it has a lengthy charge time.

The game has the player fight a large boss. The boss changes form each stage, and there are five stages for each of forty levels per game mode. Stages cannot be played separately, but any level in any mode may be played without playing the lower-sequenced levels.

Little Wheel  
OneClickDogAdventureBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Little Wheel is a point-and-click adventure game which tells the story of a community of robots who had their power shut down due to a minor mishap. By chance a guard robot was brought back to life after getting struck by lightning, and it is up to the player to assist our mechanical friend as it tries to restore power back to the city.

Cutscenes are well-animated, puzzles are easy enough to solve without referring to a walkthrough, and all hot spots are marked clearly with either a gray or white circle. The only real fault to be found here is the length of the game, but even that is possibly down to how entertaining it is to play from start to end.
