Undoubtedly one of the best Qix clones on the PC, the only drawback to be found in Gal Pani X is the use of suggestive images as backgrounds. The gameplay involves drawing lines to uncover parts of a picture while trying to avoid collision with enemy projectiles.

A player has to reveal at least eighty percent of the silhouette to complete the main objective. Most bosses have attack patterns which resemble those found in classic scrolling shooters as well. Difficult to recommend due to it's subject matter but as a freeware remake this is definitely one for the collection.

Hoshi Saga Ringoame  
Yoshio Ishii, NekogamesPuzzleBrowserClick here to play

Already the fifth game in the series (and the second one to feature full colour), Hoshi Saga Ringoame is a collection of twenty-five puzzles from Yoshio Ishii in which the player has to find a star hidden somewhere in every stage. Perhaps the easiest game out of the five, the only challenge that players might have a problem with is when trying to line up objects properly while the in-game physics engine is at work.

None of the puzzles require dexterity or quick fingers to solve, so if you're having difficulties with a particular stage then it could be a good idea to take a step back and try an alternate method instead.

Fox EyePlatformer0.71 MBClick here to download

Holdover is a puzzle platformer in the style of the old Metroid series, where you are in control of a girl named Marie who had just woken up from a deep slumber inside an abandoned research complex. A holographic image of Marie's father informs her that she was involved in an accident many years ago, and had to be kept inside a medical treatment capsule for some time so that her organs could be regenerated by scientific means. After listening to her father's advice, she sets out to explore the complex and recover her motor skills which were impaired by her long sleep in the life chamber.

The research facility is a labyrinth of corridors, platforms and underwater sections, presumably caused by flooding in the lower levels of the building. Since you can't swim nor jump very high at the start of the game, the time in which you spent underwater will be limited to how long you can hold your breath. This is indicated by the bubble shown at the top left part of the screen, and Marie will drown when this counter reaches zero. Collecting enough blue hearts, and the ability to hold her breath underwater will improve.

Players can save their progress at any time by using the quick save slot, while maps and hints in Japanese can be accessed by clicking on the capture button at the official site. To download the game, just click on the blue button at the upper right part of the web page and a link to the zip file will appear. Take note that Holdover does have some blood and nudity in it.

Press the space key to change colors. An online high score submission feature is included.

Action Fist  
Beau Blyth, TeknogamesAction/Arcade5.53 MBClick 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.

Streemerz Flash  
The Podunkian, Arthur LeePlatformerBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Streemerz is a remake loosely based on an Action 52 game with the same name, featuring new art and music resources from Arthur Lee and Binbag McGraw. The story is now set sometime in the future, although the main character still uses streamers to scale walls or climb onto platforms. There are plenty of checkpoints for players to save their progress with, but they could be a few rooms apart by the time you're close to completing your mission.

Note that a load game option isn't available, so if you exit back to the main menu or quit the game you would have to replay the entire story mode from the beginning.

Crypts of Despair, The  
JTRRPG1.15 MBClick here to download
(external link)

The Crypts of Despair is a new release from the creator of Death Worm, though with a lot less action than it's famous counterpart.

The X key can be used to open a chest, collect items or rest in an alcove to restore energy. A food unit is consumed for every move, but can be replenished by collecting meat found in the crypt. Arrows can be used for range attacks if a bow is bought from the shop. Press the C key to enter the aim mode.

Fans of roguelike games will enjoy this tiny little dungeon romp quite a bit. There are thirty levels to explore in total.

YamotoAction/Arcade2.14 MBClick here to download

Saintrooper is a challenging exploration platform game that takes place mostly under water, where your character has to swim up for air often or collect oxygen tanks to prevent from losing valuable hearts. The game ends if you run out of lives, but players can always continue playing from the last level attempted by using the stage select option shown after the control selection menu.

One key feature of the game is that you have the ability to grab on to walls and climb upwards by jumping off a vertical surface. You can shoot in four different directions, and acquiring the special power-up item will temporary increase your firepower and oxygen reserves. By firing downwards during a freefall, it is even possible to reduce the falling speed and soften the impact of your landing.

There is an exit to be found somewhere in each level, but to get there you would first have to find a set of keys and unlock the doors that prevent you from reaching them easily. Leaving treasures uncollected might not be a good idea either, since extra lives are given out generously whenever you've scored a certain amount of points during your rescue mission.
