L' Abbaye des Morts  
LocomalitoPlatformer1.39 MBClick here to download

L' Abbaye des Morts (The Abbey of the Dead) is another excellent game from the creator of Hydorah and 8-Bit Killer, a 2D platformer that draws inspiration from classics such as Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy. Here you play as Jean Raymond, a preacher who escapes to an abandoned church after being chased by a group of crusaders. Following the instructions on parchments left behind by past occupants of the building, Jean must seek out and collect the twelve cathar crosses before he can escape from his pursuers.

Each of the twenty-three rooms have a different name to label the location, and some of the short descriptive text may even provide clues on how to solve a puzzle or two. Jean does not carry a weapon nor will he acquire one during his adventure, and the cursor keys are the only controls you ever need to use in this game from start to end.

L' Abbaye des Morts can be beaten in a single afternoon, although it is unlikely that you will complete the quest on your first try.

La-Mulana  
GR3 Project, NigoroPlatformer6.11 MBClick here to download

La-Mulana is a freeware free-roaming platformer game designed to look, sound, and play like a classic MSX game. It's heavily influenced by the classic Konami MSX game 'The Maze of Galious' and anyone who has played that title will probably recognize the similarities very quickly. You play the whip-wielding Indiana Jones-esque archaeologist Lemeza Kosugi as he investigates the ancient ruins of La-Mulana in an attempt to find its treasure and one-up his father, who is trying to get the same treasure as well.

The game is huge, with many different areas to explore and dozens of items and weapons to find. Each area has a large variety of puzzles and traps and you need to solve the puzzles in each area to discover the Ankhs and Ankh Jewels, which allow you to fight the eight Guardians of the ruins. To solve the puzzles you'll need to be able to read the tablets scattered throughout the ruins, which will require a Hand Scanner and translation software for the portable MSX that Lemeza has brought along on the adventure. Your Hand Scanner will also allow you to find items and search the bones of less fortunate adventurers.

Legend of Princess, The  
Joakim SandbergPlatformer9.56 MBClick here to download

The Legend of Princess is a 2D platformer created by the developer of Chalk and the Noitu Love series, where players get to step into the shoes of a tunic-wearing hero on a quest to rescue a kidnapped princess. As with most of Joakim's releases, there are plenty of memorable boss encounters to be had here.

Note that the game has only one playable level, although arcade veterans could technically replay the entire adventure at a higher difficulty setting by choosing a different set of starting equipment with each new try. Also, the chances of getting a rare blue or red gem increases if you defeat more enemies and avoid getting hurt too frequently.

Lost in Eldritch
Joachim DesplandPlatformer4.70 MBClick here to download

Lost in Eldritch is a short 2D platformer created by Joachim Despland, which tells the story of a protagonist who is stranded on an unfamiliar landscape with no memory of events leading up to his current predicament.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the Z key to jump, and hold the A key to walk slowly. The adventure itself is a short one, although most players would find the control scheme awkward and quit in frustration before reaching the end.

Lost in the Static

Lost in the Static is a free exploration-oriented platform game for Windows XP and Vista on reasonably modern PCs. It uses some surprising aspects of the human perceptual system to create a visible world out of animating static.

May cause headaches and nausea. The game has a proper ending.

Lost Snowmen, The
Red SystemPlatformer16.4 MBClick here to download

The Lost Snowmen is a platformer starring three characters with different skill sets, who will have to assist each other during their adventures in order to fulfill a variety of level objectives. Use the cursor keys to move, press the Z key to switch between snowmen, and hold the X key to execute a specific action. Press the escape key to skip cutscenes, and use the F4 function key to switch between full screen and windowed mode.

Stages can be played out of order and attempted at leisure, while the inclusion of a level editor is simply icing on a very tasty cake.

Love
Fred WoodPlatformer31.9 MBClick here to download

Love is a minimalistic platformer in the style of messhof's Punishment series, consisting of twenty playable levels.

Use the F5 and F6 function keys to change window size. Press the A key to jump, or hold the same button for a higher leap. Use the S key to set a spawn point, and press the D key to respawn at the cost of a life. If you have set a respawn point at a place you don't want it to be at, you can press the S and down arrow key to return it to its original place.

The F2 function key can be used to return to the main menu, although all your progress will be lost.

Lyle in Cube Sector

Lyle in Cube Sector is a platformer that is reminiscent of the classic Metroid series in more than a few ways. Exploration is a key element in this game, as you seek out the culprit responsible for the kidnapping of Lyle's lovable kitten.

The protagonist starts off with no possession or special skills, but will soon acquire the ability to pick up blocks and use it to eliminate enemies or jump twice as high. Things begin to unravel pretty quickly once you have learnt a trick or two, plus there are many rooms to explore and secrets to discover.

Don't be put off by the retro graphics, this is one quality effort that fans of classic platform games should not miss.
