Crimzon Clover  
YotsubaneShoot 'em up139 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Crimzon Clover is truly a wet dream for shoot 'em up fans. Though labeled as a trial version, this vertical 2D shooter sports a generous three full levels to play, jaw-dropping graphics, a limited shop section for unlockables, and the obligatory yet awe-inspiring boss fights.

In addition to your primary weapon, you can hold down the second shot button to target enemy ships, then release the key to fire homing beams at them. Collecting stars increases your special gauge, and when you press the C key it will either activate the bomb or your ship's break mode, depending on how much of the bar has been filled.

Note that the continues that you purchase from the shop can only be used once.

Seiklus  
cly5mPlatformer2.58 MBClick here to download

Seiklus is a puzzle platformer with an emphasis on exploration. There is no dialogue or literary exposition of the plot. The game consists of loosely connected areas that the player has to explore, collecting both items to help on the way and floating wisps of various colours, which should optimally be all obtained. Seiklus has no weapons and no violence. There are various hostile lifeforms in some areas, but at worst they only set you back a little. It is impossible to lose or get stuck.

Digital: A Love Story

Christine LoveAdventure34.2 MBClick here to download

Digital: A Love Story is an interactive fiction game created by Christine Love, presented through Bulletin Board Systems that you can visit and read using an operating system interface which mimics those found in computers from the late 1980s. At the start of your adventure a message in your inbox offers a phone number for you to dial up and log into your first BBS, and once you're familiar with the set of applications on your virtual desktop the tasks of replying to messages and initiating conversations with strangers can all be done with just the click of a button.

Though there's quite a bit of text to read in Digital: A Love Story, the game won't take longer than an afternoon to play through. The control scheme is admittedly clunky (e.g. you can't use the Enter key to submit a phone number, although it works when you're transferring codes), but persevere and you will be rewarded with an absorbing experience that no other game from this day and age can offer.

Invisible Vision

(external link)

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.

Warlock Bentspine  
Lazrool, LazraelPlatformer8.12 MBClick here to download

Warlock Bentspine is a 2D platformer that features four stages to beat, each with a set of randomized stages for you to play in whichever direction you decide to tackle a level. At the start of a game you're presented with exits on the left and right side of the room, and if you keep going in one direction you'll face the boss of that stage in the tenth room.

Similar to the Megaman series, players will gain a new weapon to use once they've beaten a stage boss. Besides being able to shoot horizontally and vertically, Mr. Bentspine can also execute double jumps and dash for a short distance.

One thing to note is that the game doesn't automatically save your progress, although a three-digit combination code will be shown at the stage selection menu. This code can be used at the title screen to restore a game from a certain state.

Space Funeral  
thecatamitesRPG45.8 MBClick here to download
(external link)

A departure from his usual AGS offerings, Stephen's Space Funeral is a role-playing game created using the RPG Maker engine. The story is about a man named Phillip, who is on a journey to reach a place called the City of Forms.

You get to recruit only one travelling companion during the entire adventure, meaning that there is very little party management and individual character stats to worry about here. The exercise of grinding for experience is also kept to a minimum, and you can beat the final boss even before either of your party members reach level twenty or above.

The game takes about two hours to play from start to end, but you have to remind yourself to save often because there are no inns or checkpoints to record your progress for you. Should the random encounters becomes tedious over time, players can also use the auto option to have battles resolved for them automatically.

Zoo Keeper DX is a matching game by ROBOT which involves swapping tiles around to make matches of three or more. This updated version includes special tiles which can be used as a substitute for any tile on board, a helpful hint feature, and the handy checklist to keep track of your level objectives.

musagi  
DrPetter, Tomas PetterssonApplication2.07 MBClick here to download

Musagi is a fairly sophisticated music editor and synthesizer which is more polished than most shareware or commercial products available in the market. The program comes with a broad range of instruments, from predefined retro sounds that can be customized to a MIDI interface and a WAV sampler.

Even if you're not a composer and do not hook up your musical instrument to record tunes on your PC or use the keyboard to play them, you can ignore the more advanced sound-editing features and start composing a nice melody right away.

Be sure to read the text file in the documentation folder, then check out the nicely written step-by-step tutorial that will guide you in composing your very first tune. - Lim-Dul

Ghosts of Aliens  
Swordofkings128RPG82.2 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Ghosts of Aliens is a full-length RPG which has been in production for nearly an entire year, featuring music by one of the developers credited with creating the post-cyberpocalyptic basketball epic, Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. Playing as the ghost of an alien named Atum, the story tells the tale of this restless soul who is given another chance at life, granted that he undertakes a quest to defeat the five Doom Beasts and save the world of Appalathia.

Use the Z key to run or select a menu option, and press the X key to cancel a choice or bring up your inventory screen. Press the left alt and enter key at the same time to switch between windowed and full screen mode. Progress can be saved at any time.

Combat is mostly negligible, as enemies encountered during the early part of the game only requires two hits or less before surrendering to you. Bosses can be easily defeated using your strongest Magle, while Quencheleth are readily available for purchase from item shops located in towns scattered all over Appalathia. There is however one particular dungeon that will most likely cause excruciating frustration, since entering this area inside a tree will end your adventure in less than two seconds if you're not equipped with the Mark IV blocker. In here, players would have to be mindful of their steps as well, as touching traps would pretty much wipe out all party members without warning.

Ghosts of Aliens isn't without faults and bugs, but anyone who is willing to persevere might find a couple of pleasant surprises to be had with this adventure. The RPG Maker 2000 Font Patch can be used to fix font display problems, but note that the program doesn't come with an uninstaller.
