|ro9 ||Justin Smith||RPG||1.41 MB||Click here to download|
ro9 is a turn-based role-playing game in which you get to control the actions of nine different characters at the same time, using only one set of controls for all. The objective here is to get all of your heroes down to the ninth and last level of the dungeon to loot the treasure, although you can still win if some of them succumb to their injuries before reaching the goal.
There are three types of monsters in each level. Humanoids are easy to defeat, while animals or creatures take a couple more shots to kill. Bosses are the strongest, and will take quite a beating before they drop an ankh. Collecting an ankh resurrects all rogues that died on the same dungeon level.
The basic strategy here is to win enemy encounters and increase your level before proceeding down the stairs, indicated by the number of yellow squares inside the window of each hero. The red outline that surrounds each view shows the amount of damage a character has taken, and players are advised to look for a health potion if it starts to turn bright red.
|Kingdom of Loathing ||Asymmetric Publications||RPG||Browser||Click here to play|
Unlike some of the popular multiplayer RPGs these days, Jick (real name Zack Johnson) first created Kingdom of Loathing as a simple game that had stick figures for character illustrations, seemingly random items and odd combat encounters with inhabitants of the land. KoL now boasts over a hundred thousand active users - an amazing achievement for a game which looks and plays exactly the same way as when it started out five years ago.
|Clean Asia ||cactus||Shoot 'em up||5.62 MB||Click here to download|
Part Warning Forever, part Tumiki Fighters, all style. In Clean Asia, the eyes of mankind has decided to leave their hosts and take over the earth. Their first move was to escape to the moon, where they developed their hostile weapon technology. Ten years later they return and forcefully take over some prominent countries in Asia. Thailand and New Korea has both succumb to the hostile threat, while China insists on dealing with the eyes themselves and refuses any helping hands from around the world.
America sends a pair of pilot twins with extraordinary sixth senses to battle against the evil eyes. They both have designed their own space ships that seems to be about the only thing in existance that can be used to battle these terrible fiends.
It has three levels and two selectable ships with distinct controlling differences and abillities, fourteen bosses and ten regular enemies.
|Vacant Ark ||Buster||Shoot 'em up||9.83 MB||Click here to download|
Vacant Ark is a strange departure from standard horizontal shooters, featuring excellent sprite designs by Buster but employing a slightly awkward gameplay system. You can only store and use up to six bullets at any time, although this supply can be replenished by collecting blue gems from vanquished enemies.
You lose all your energy stock if an enemy bullet grazes your on-screen character. A life is lost if you have no energy left when receiving damage. Your pod can also turn enemy bullets into gems when not in use for a few seconds.
Each end level boss requires a different strategy to beat. Some weapons are more effective in certain situations. You can only progress to the next zone if none of the bosses escape.
|Action Fist ||Beau Blyth, Teknogames||Action/Arcade||5.53 MB||Click here to download|
Action Fist is a 2D action platformer that features both single and two-player co-op gameplay modes, multiple weapon power-ups, frequent checkpoint locations, and the usual array of boss fights that require some thought and strategy to defeat. Switching weapons and the wall jumping ability does take a bit of getting used to, but once you've played past the first level these actions should come just as naturally as shooting and jumping in the game.
Though an easy mode exists in Action Fist, you definitely won't feel challenged at all by anything other than the Normal and Hero difficulty settings.
|Crayon Physics ||Petri Purho||Puzzle||5.63 MB||Click here to download|
Crayon Physics is the latest experimental project by Petri Purho, showcasing a gameplay element right out of the recent arcade favorite Chalk. Draw squares to guide the red ball towards the stars to complete each stage, with challenges usually requiring the placement of bridges, weights or elevation objects around the landscape.
Press space to reset the current level, or use the alternate and F4 function key to play in full screen mode.
|Push Push Penguin ||Army of Trolls||Action/Arcade||1.07 MB||Click here to download|
Out of the many Pengo remakes released in recent years, Push Push Penguin by Tomaz Kac still stands as the best one available with minor changes made to vary gameplay. Among some of it's improvements include a simultaneous two player mode using joysticks or a single keyboard, a new freeze move and additional bonus items to collect.
This particular effort may not impress the current generation of gamers but anyone who fondly remembers the arcade classic won't be disappointed one bit.
|Fishie Fishie |
- Windows, Linux
|Farbs||Action/Arcade||3.73 MB||Click here to download|
Fishie Fishie is a new release from the creator of Polychromatic Funk Monkey, in which players only require the use of a single button to play. The aim of the game is basically to grab all the fishes in each level to progress, and a checkpoint is placed in every fifth stage.
Hold the space key to turn in one direction, or tap it rapidly to swim forward. An addictive little one-switch effort, though extremely challenging towards the end.
|Frozzd ||Jesse Venbrux||Action/Arcade||5.72 MB||Click here to download|
In Frozzd, you take the role of an astronaut tasked with the mission of freeing orange-colored creatures named Mubblies from their frozen state. You begin each level with King Mubbly as your companion, who has the ability to unfreeze his subjects or attack the Frozzds with a tap of the space key. Drink coffee to increase your suit's temperature, and use the points you've acquired to unlock new stages.
Each of the twelve levels introduces a different enemy, and points acquired from previous stages can be used to unlock new ones.
|Archaist ||Michi||Shoot 'em up||9.25 MB||Click here to download|
Archaist could not be any more different than it's predecessor, yet manages to retain every defining element of the original. Your mission is basically to search each area of the map for artifacts in the shape of floppy disks and time capsules. These objects should then be deposited at a base or station in order to earn an advancement in your designated rank.
It takes a bit of effort to learn the controls, fortunately the difficulty level can be adjusted to your liking. Rather frustrating at times as well, due to the fact that the number of artifacts collected are halved if you lose a ship. There's no save game function though all these are just minor nitpicks.
A remake that even the original author would approve of. Includes a Pastfinder theme which can be selected from the main menu.
