Ikaros Tonight

Ikaros Tonight is a 2D platformer created by Dot Zo Games, developer of Journey to the Center of the Earth and the Xbox Live Indie Games release Ninja Bros. The objective of the game is to collect keys that'll unlock the exit door in each area, advancing from one stage to another until you've beaten every single level or run out of lives. Yellow orbs can be used to boost you upwards, and tapping the left or right cursor key rapidly while Icarus is still in the air causes him to float back down to the ground at a slower speed.

A large gem that rewards the player with an extra life will only appear after you've collected three small gems in a row, and a reset key (tab) is included for situations where you're stuck on a platform with no way to reach the exit. A password is provided to the player for every ten levels completed, and you can input this code to skip levels quickly or resume playing from a certain point the next time you run the game.

In a Dungeon is a short overhead platformer where every room contains a challenge that you have to beat in order to escape from the maze. The map on the floor of your starting location indicates areas with uncollected yellow crystals, and the only way out of your current predicament is to collect all twenty-one crystals from the individual rooms in the labyrinth.

Wilson SaundersPlatformer0.82 MBClick here to download

A 2D platformer created by Wilson Saunders, the objective of Insomnia is to reach the top of a tower before you collapse from deprivation of sleep and get dragged down by tentacles into their cold embrace for a really long nap.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the Z or space key to jump, and hold the up arrow key to hook on to the surface of a wall or a ledge. You can also restart a game quickly by pressing the enter key.

As time passes, our energetic protagonist will begin to feel sleepy. Negative effects from drowsiness include impaired view, reduced jump height and decreased mobility. Grab items which increase awareness to counter these illl effects, but try to avoid using syringes or pills unless absolutely necessary as taking medication causes the tentacles to reach higher.

A short congratulatory screen is shown if you manage to reach the top of the tower.

Ivory Springs
Joakim SandbergPlatformer3.98 MBClick here to download

Similar to Joakim's The Legend of Princess, Ivory Springs is an incomplete project that is short on length but packs enough content to entertain for about half an hour or so. The game is an enjoyable exploration platformer which features great background art and sprite designs, a catchy soundtrack, directional shooting, Mega Man-type slides, and memorable boss fights.

There is a special guest appearance included as a surprise, but if you haven't been following konjak's work for a while now you'd probably wouldn't even notice her cameo.
