Storm Assault  
Storm ProjectShoot 'em up27.2 MBClick here to download

Storm Assault is a horizontal shooter created by the Storm Project development team as a tribute to Konami's early Gradius series. Everything from the classic power meter, upgrade capsules, and boss ships with specific weak points have been transferred and updated with slight changes for this loose remake.

There are two stages to play in version 0.2 and upwards. The second level features battles with Moai statues, which was originally never included in earlier releases. Joystick and gamepads are automatically detected, but you can use the keyboard to control your ship as well.

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.

Counterclockwise  
NenadAction/Arcade7.07 MBClick here to download

Counterclockwise is a perfect demonstration of the quality of entries submitted to the Retro Remakes competition this year. Essentially Tron in 3D, this remake puts you in a ship that leaves a trail during flight. Your basic objective is to destroy enemy chasers, either by shooting at them or using the EMPs supplied.

Ammunition is limited, but it's possible to replenish them by collecting power-ups or executing tricks. These special moves can be practiced in a special trick trainer section. A multi-player is currently being developed, although the online high score table has already been implemented in the current version.

Cursor10 2nd Session

Cursor*10 (2nd Session) is a new follow-up to Yoshio Ishii's popular mouse click game, where players have to once again collect all pyramids in each of the sixteen floors with only the ten cursors they're allowed to use as lives. You will direct the action of every cursor, one at a time, with events beginning to loop once the allocated time for that cursor runs out.

The game is largely similar to its predecessor, but contains enough subtle additions to warrant a second play.

Possibly Babarageo's best known work, Ginormo Sword is a Zelda-like game which involves striking down enemies with your sword for treasure. The gold you've acquired can then be used to upgrade the length and width of your sword, or to acquire new blades with special bonuses.

Epsilon

Epsilon is a puzzle game which requires the act of manipulating time and space to solve each level. Your main objective is to collect all tokens to activate the exit portal, achieved by guiding the energized orb around the stage using two handy wormholes.

The first five modules basically serve as a helpful tutorial on changing the position of wormholes, pausing the game to plan your next move, turning back time using the X key, utilizing gravity fields to change the direction of the orb, and even employing ghost rooms to determine the outcome of every act of teleportation. There are fifteen stages to complete in the final module.

Xoldiers  
cactus, Terry Cavanagh, distractionwareAction/Arcade1.64 MBClick here to download

Xoldiers is a collaborative project by cactus and Terry Cavanagh, where players assume control over a squadron of soldiers on a mission to destroy as many enemy installations as they can. Use the Z key to shoot, hold the X key to take cover, press the C key to lob a grenade. Bonus points are awarded for efficiency and combo length.

An automatic online high score submission feature is included.

Veck Special Edition  
Ayden WolfShoot 'em up1.67 MBClick here to download

Veck Special Edition is the latest in a line of Geometry Wars clone for the PC. Graphics are great, the effects are mesmerizing, plus the enemy ships have their own specific behaviors and attack patterns.

Using directional firing is advised, although a joypad is still the best choice for these sort of games. You can guide your ship towards a corner to survive for the first five minutes, but it's not such a safe haven when the portals begin to appear.

A new type of enemy is introduced every minute, and your ship gets a weapon upgrade when that happens. You will be rewarded with the ability to fire hundreds of bullets per second for lasting at least ten minutes in the game. Shields automatically regenerate over time.

In Samorost, the player interacts with the world with simple mouse clicks directing a small, white-clad humanoid with a little cap and brown boots. The object of the game is to avert a collision of the gnome's world and an incoming world.
