|Action Fist ||Beau Blyth, Teknogames||Action/Arcade||5.53 MB||Click here to download|
Action Fist is a 2D action platformer that features both single and two-player co-op gameplay modes, multiple weapon power-ups, frequent checkpoint locations, and the usual array of boss fights that require some thought and strategy to defeat. Switching weapons and the wall jumping ability does take a bit of getting used to, but once you've played past the first level these actions should come just as naturally as shooting and jumping in the game.
Though an easy mode exists in Action Fist, you definitely won't feel challenged at all by anything other than the Normal and Hero difficulty settings.

Karoshi Factory is a new sequel to Jesse Venbrux's suicidal platformer series, where players must find unorthodox methods to kill all suits on screen in order to progress from one stage to the next.

|Guru Logic Champs ||Ian Price||Puzzle||0.56 MB||Click here to download|
Guru Logic Champs is originally a puzzler developed by Compile for the Game Boy Advance, which was also remade by PopCap under the name of Pixelus. There are usually several white spaces and immovable blocks in each stage. These blocks are the only objects which can stop the movement of the pieces that you shoot out of your cannon.
The main objective is to place these pieces on the designated areas indicated by the white squares. Pieces shot out of a cannon will continue sliding until they hit another block. Some tile manipulation skills are required as the number of blocks assigned to you is just enough to complete each level.
These pieces can be retrieved at any time by pressing the down arrow key, providing that the route is clear to do so. The board can be rotated by pressing the Z or X key. Use the page up and page down keys to browse puzzle sets when the puzzle selection screen is shown.
Only eighty puzzles are accessible in this version. The game was developed using BlitzMax, but will work under both XP and Vista operating systems.

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.
|Star Guard |
- Windows, Mac
|Sparky||Action/Arcade||2.76 MB||Click here to download|
Star Guard is a 2D platformer in which you play as a spaceman on a mission to defeat an evil wizard, armed with only a gun that fires in the direction that you are facing. A quick trigger finger helps, because enemies have a tendency to spring out of nowhere and take you by surprise. Slow to react, and you'd end up back at the last checkpoint location or the beginning of the level you are on.
The game isn't particularly difficult to beat, considering that players have infinite lives to waste on getting shot at or springing traps. There are nine levels to play in total, and instructions on how to unlock an extra mode are given after completing the entire quest.
|Oddbob||Shoot 'em up||11.1 MB||Click here to download|
G-Force is a brilliant remake that plays very much like a flat 2D Tempest, in which enemies rain down from the top of the screen in an attempt to crash into your ship. Press the Z or Y key to shoot, and tap the X key to activate the special weapon.
Only two directional arrow keys are ever needed, and use of the superzapper is only allowed once in each level. Playing hints can be found in the same forum thread, though simple strategies can be formulated after a few plays. Highly recommended for a quick fix.

Japanese developers are pretty obsessed with Moai statues. Nest of Moai is basically an entire game based on the objective of touching these strange structures with your mouse cursor.
Move your cursor over as many statues as possible in thirty seconds, although these tiny little guys will attempt to make matters difficult by popping up in odd places. Large statues require some rubbing, but they do contribute quite a bit to your score.
|Minimal Yahtzee ||Gary Warne||Puzzle||0.04 MB||Click here to download|
The objective of Minimal Yahtzee is to score the most points by rolling five dice to make certain combinations. The dice can be rolled up to three times in a turn to try to make one of the thirteen possible scoring combinations.
A game of Yahtzee consists of thirteen rounds during which the player chooses which scoring combination is to be used in that round. Once a combination has been used in the game, it cannot be used again.
Each of the scoring combinations has a different point value, some of which are fixed values and others of which have the cumulative value of the dice. A Yahtzee is a five-of-a-kind and holds the game's highest point value of 50.
