Alter Ego

In Alter Ego, you start off the game by answering a few questions to deduce your personality. Gameplay basically revolves around the use of a tree diagram. You can choose life experiences to explore from this diagram by clicking on the icons. These are social, intellectual, emotional, physical and familial (faces, brain, heart, x-ray and family, in that order).

The hourglass describes your current stage in life and the bar chart shows some stats about your alter ego.

Ikachan has been largely ignored by many due to the Japanese text, but finally a proper English version was recently released and made available for download. This translation is much better than the one that has been making it's rounds, with most of the storyline kept intact and understandable.

The game itself is a nice little underwater exploration number that won't take more than an hour or two to solve. Fans of Cave Story certainly wouldn't be disappointed with one of Pixel's earlier work.

Soul of Dracula, The

The Soul of Dracula is a 2D platformer inspired by the Castlevania series, featuring appearances from mainstays such as Death and the Count himself in the role of level bosses. You play as a vampire hunter who must venture into the Dark Prince's castle and defeat him using only your whip and the familiar array of magical weapons at your disposal.

Though many of the enemies had appeared in monsieur Belmont's adventures before, the developer of this tribute project had included a couple of twists and surprises that will please even the most hardcore of Castlevania fans out there.

Shoot First  
Beau Blyth, TeknogamesAction/Arcade3.60 MBClick here to download

Shoot First is an action game with roguelike elements, featuring procedurally generated levels, an automap system, two-player co-op mode, an online high score table, and even AI-controlled companions to help you out during heated gunfights with denizens of the dungeon. Your character can only carry one weapon at a time, and three other equipment that you acquire during your adventure. Weapons are upgraded automatically after a prolonged period of use, but the bonuses don't carry over when you switch to another gun.

Like any roguelike, your objective here is to descend the staircase that leads to the next level. Sometimes the staircase is blocked by a locked door, so you must first find the yellow key hidden somewhere in the dungeon before proceeding to the exit.

Red potions can be quaffed to restore a tiny bit of health, and rescuing damsels in distress also have the same effect on your hero. There's no button to drop an item in your inventory, but you can swap them out when the inventory slots are full by picking up an object on the ground.

Cedric and the Revolution is an AGS release created by Bernie, who happens to be developer of A Game with a Kitty as well. An old school adventure in the style of classic Lucasarts titles, you play the role of the titular character in his quest to gather enough people for a peaceful demonstration.

Expect a well-written story, witty dialogues and memorable characters brought vividly to life by his distinct art style.

Squid and Let Die  
OddbobAction/Arcade15.1 MBClick here to download

Squid and Let Die is a fast-paced arcade game in which players have to collect all dots on screen to progress to the next level. Cannons will try to home in on your position and fire a shot at you, but you can dodge them with ease if you move quickly enough.

The key to advancing in this game is to trick those cannons into shooting, since the cannons are immobilized while their shots still remain on the grid. The controls will take some getting used to, but players with a fondness for classic gaming will certainly want to add Oddbob's latest to their collection.

X-0utShoot 'em up6.65 MBCurrently unavailable

X-0ut returns with a brand new shooter entitled Gravitron, though this one requires a little more tact as it is actually based on Thrust. Instead of transporting pods into the skies you now have to destroy reactors while saving any spacemen wandering on the surface of the planet.

Switch to mouse controls by pressing the tab key when the main menu is shown. Activate the shields next to a fuel pod to fill up your tank. Progress is saved using a pass phrase, plus the nifty level editor facilitate user creations quite well. Expect more content to be posted in the near future.

Dungeon Crawl

Linley's Dungeon Crawl is a roguelike game originally programmed by Linley Henzell in 1995. Crawl starts with the player's choice of one of twenty-six races: five different types of elves, two types of dwarves, humans, ogres, centaurs, merfolk and other beings. Racial selection sets base attributes, future skill advancement, and physical characteristics such as movement, resistances, and special abilities.

The player next chooses a character class from among twenty-eight selections. Together, class and race determine base equipment and skill training, though characters may later attempt to acquire any in-game skill. The Crawl skill system covers most abilities upon which adventurers might call, while training occurs through repetition of skill-related actions.

The goal of Crawl is to recover the Orb of Zot, hidden deep within a dungeon complex. To achieve this objective, characters must visit various dungeon branches, such as the Orcish Mines or The Lair, which often branch further in to additional areas, like the Elven Halls or The Swamp. Dungeon maps in Crawl persist as the player moves between levels.


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.
