Paroxysm  
Tom VinePlatformer1.72 MBClick here to download

Paroxysm is a platformer by Tom Vine which is reminiscent of the early Prince of Persia series. Guide an unnamed explorer deeper into a dangerous maze, as he seeks to find an exit among the traps and dangers laid out with the intent to end the adventures of many brave explorers.

Slightly frustrating at times but the difficulty can be adjusted to your liking.

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.

The Soul of Dracula is a 2D platformer inspired by the Castlevania series, featuring appearances from mainstays such as Death and the Count himself in the role of level bosses. You play as a vampire hunter who must venture into the Dark Prince's castle and defeat him using only your whip and the familiar array of magical weapons at your disposal.

Though many of the enemies had appeared in monsieur Belmont's adventures before, the developer of this tribute project had included a couple of twists and surprises that will please even the most hardcore of Castlevania fans out there.

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.

Strange Adventures in Infinite Space  
- Windows, Mac
Digital EelStrategy7.87 MBClick here to download

Digital Eel's Strange Adventures in Infinite Space is a space exploration game in which you play an unemployed space pilot, hired by a smuggler to embark on a dangerous ten-year mission in the Sector Prime system. Your employer is willing to part with handsome rewards for any discoveries that you find during this dangerous journey, but return to him late and you will be charged extra in ship rental costs.

The map is randomized every time you play, and interplanetary travel is initiated by left-clicking on a nearby star and pressing the engage button. Your ship can only travel in a straight line, and flying through the Purple Void nebula will only slow you down even further.

Combat is conducted in real-time, with information about the current ship selected shown on the left side of the screen during a space battle. The green bar indicates your shield status, which recharges automatically during combat. The orange bar shows your ship's condition, and when this gauge runs out the ship is pretty much reduced to space debris.

Both the Windows and Mac versions of SAIS are now available as free downloads, and there are a bunch of mods that can be applied to change your ship's appearance, the types of aliens populating the system, and even the effects of new artifacts that you can find during your adventure in space. Some mods like Red Planet and Even Stranger Adventures in Infinite Space act as full-fledged conversions as well, offering a new storyline, GUI and alternate objectives for the players to achieve.

Excellent Bifurcation  
Linley HenzellShoot 'em up0.96 MBClick here to download

In Excellent Bifurcation, the aliens have attacked and their ability to exist in either or both of their world and ours has given them an almost unsurpassable advantage. Take command of a special fighter craft capable of existing in both realities at once and drive them back!

The form your fighter takes on the left has double fast-firing cannons and can charge to release up to eight seekers. It is ideal for destroying small and weak but numerous enemies. The right-hand form has a single powerful cannon which fires slowly but does far more damage, and is more suited to taking out larger enemies. It can charge up to release a wave which passes through things, damaging them as it goes. You can switch them between the worlds depending on what kind of firepower you need where.

The only vulnerable parts of your ship are the white parts at the centre. This means that the small form is much better at dodging than the large one. The only dangerous parts of bullets are the brightest (yellow or white) parts. Also, if you are shot down the form which was hit emits a green shockwave instead of a yellow one.

Press the Z key to shoot, X key to charge the special weapon, and C key to switch between two forms. Use the A key to activate autofire. You can change settings, like windowed vs fullscreen and whether it uses vsync, by editing the init.txt file.

Andrés BorghiAction/Arcade142 MBClick here to download
(external link)

The Black Heart is a versus fighting game which took Argentine developer Andrés Borghi seven years to create using Elecbyte's M.U.G.E.N. engine. There are six playable characters to choose from, each with their own set of special moves that can be executed using simple key press combinations. In addition to the basic attacks, players can also charge up their energy gauge and perform a powerful fatal move to finish a duel in style.

The game also features a couple of gameplay modes separate from the main story campaign, with support for hotseat multiplayer also included.

Opera Omnia  
- Windows, Mac
Stephen Lavelle, increparePuzzle4.58 MBClick here to download

In Opera Omnia you play a state historian who is charged by his politician friend to come up with convenient theories about migration in the past. Basically, you have to think backwards: if people were in this city during a plague, and if plagues reduce population, that means that they had to have had a lot of people in order to survive that plague: thus, plagues actually increase population if you work backwards in time.

The challenge of each level is that you're given something to prove -- such as prove that 300,000 people lived in this city a long time ago -- and you adjust migration patterns that will show how 300,000 people could have lived in that city a long time ago.

The gameplay may be a bit hard to "get" at first, and a lot of the people I've recommended the game to had a hard time wrapping their mind around the concept, but if you do manage to do it you'll find it a clever gameplay mechanic and some interesting challenges unlike most other games. There's also a pretty well-written story over the span of its 20 levels. - Paul Eres

Karoshi Factory

Jesse VenbruxPlatformer7.62 MBClick here to download

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. Use the Z key to jump, press the X key to shoot once a gun is acquired, and tap the space key to switch characters.

Press the R key to restart a level at any time. The F4 function key can be used to toggle between full screen and windowed modes. Note that touching the blue button causes a random effect, one of which is disabling the character switch function.
