Little Master Cricket is a physics-based action game which involves using a bat to keep balls headed your way from touching the stumps. Strike rate is calculated by dividing the points you've acquired with the number of balls you've managed to hit out of the area. Getting balls to touch a high risk zone awards more runs.

Invisible Vision is a 3D arena shooter set at sea, where players get to engage in naval battles with enemy submarines while surviving the occasional boss encounter or two. Wireframes are used to replicate the surroundings of a dark ocean, and with careful observation you can easily detect enemy ships based on the ripples caused by their movements.

The arrow keys can be used to move your ship around. To launch a torpedo, just press the Z key. Every missed shot costs three seconds, and the game is over when you run out of time or lives.

If green is not your favorite color, there are two other executables to start the game in gray or blue.

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale  
(demo)
EasyGameStation, Carpe FulgurStrategy63.8 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is a game about an item store, the girl who lives in it, and the fairy whose job it is to make sure that the girl doesn't burn down the item store by accident. Playing the game involves gathering items - either by playing the markets in the city of Pensee, or grabbing an adventurer and delving into the dungeons that dot the countryside - and selling them to the customers who come through your doors. Tear, the fairy, is here to collect on a loan your father took out - and she'll have to take the store, which doubles as your house, if you can't pay up.

The game is split into two main parts: selling items, and exploring dungeons. There isn't really much of anything quite like this combination in any other game, and the number of items you can find is massive.

Selling items and dungeon diving isn't all there is to do, however. There's quite a cast of characters to meet in Recettear, some friendly, some less so. Their fates tie into your own, though, and helping them out could lead you to riches beyond your wildest dreams.

A House in California

A House in California is a surreal, narrative game about four characters who bring a house to life. These four characters are based the developer's relatives (two grandmothers and two great-grandmothers). The game is inspired aesthetically by Mystery House, developed in 1980 by Roberta and Ken Williams. But whereas Mystery House is a mystery story about greed and murder, A House in California is more like an Imagist poem about family and memory.

1213 Episode 2

YahtzeeAdventure4.66 MBClick here to download

Yahtzee continues to impress with 1213 Episode 2, a platformer made using the AGS engine. Our clueless protagonist can now be made to run by holding down the shift key, and the environment is no longer limited to a grayish shade.

There is some backtracking as 1213 can only carry one item at any moment, but fortunately less time is required to travel from place to place thanks to his newfound ability.

Icy Tower  
Free Lunch DesignAction/Arcade5.26 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Icy Tower is another excellent release from Free Lunch Design. The story is about a homeboy named Harold, who discovers a mysterious tower that he feels strangely compelled to climb all the way to the top by jumping from platform to platform.

Movements are limited to left, right or jump. Execute a higher jump by running in one direction to gain momentum before pressing space. Chain double or triple jumps to activate combo mode and multiply your score. The screen will move upward constantly, and the game ends if you run out of platforms to land on.

The game can be customized by downloading additional characters to use from the site. Replays can be saved and shared among other players. Simple in design but extremely difficult to master.
