Protoganda: Strings  
cactusShoot 'em up2.74 MBClick here to download

Players start out with three minutes of play time in Protoganda. Defeating a boss awards an extra fifteen seconds, while getting your ship blown up deducts forty. If the timer reaches zero, you lose.

In Shield mode, press the Z and X key to repel bullets. A charge shot can be used by holding the X key, and targeting is automatic.

Absorb mode is a replica of Ikaruga's gameplay mechanics. Switch colors to turn invulnerable agains bullets of the same color. Touch a bullet to absorb it, and increase the destructive power of your charge shot while replenishing a bit of time in the process. More damage is done if your bullets of the opposite color connect with the enemy. Press the C key to release a charged shot.

There are two separate online highscore tables for both modes. The bosses name are selected from a list of fifty most common Russian family names.

Press the F1 function key to change resolution to 640x480 for a larger gameplay window display, and use the R key during a game to restart immediately without returning to the main menu.

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.

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.

Captain Forever

In Captain Forever, you're the captain of a ship named Nemesis, stranded in space without a single clue about your current whereabouts. Fortunately an info buoy is around to help, providing you with some information about the sector you are in and supplying repair modules to rebuild your ship.

By destroying enemy ships with your default laser weapon, you can cause them to drop ship parts that can be attached to your own ship. Additional ship plating, extra weapons and increased thruster power are just some of the benefits to be gained from salvaging intact modules.

Devil Ronin  
Howard Kistler, Paul Pridham, Mike FraleyAction/Arcade12.6 MBClick here to download

Devil Ronin is an original C64-style game created for the Retro Remakes 2008 competition, where players assume control over a rebel oni who has sided with humanity and seeks to rid Japan of the demon scourge plaguing the entire country. This will involve travelling from one prefecture to another as he makes his way north for the final showdown with the Demon Shogun.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the left shift key to attack, and hold the space key to jump when in castle combat mode. Visiting areas with a story scene rewards your warrior with a suit of armor or full health. To navigate the map, simply press the corresponding arrow key shown under the name of any neighbouring prefecture.

Binary ZooPuzzle4.64 MBClick here to download

DUOtris is an excellent puzzler from Binary Zoo, makers of Mono and DUO. The name may be slightly misleading as the player is not required to make lines but instead link three or more blocks of the same color together to remove them from the screen.

Throw in the challenge of having two separate grids, requiring the player to shift and arrange two pieces at the same time and you have the makings of a fantastic game. You're allowed to swap pieces by pressing CTRL or space, although this option can only be used if none of the pieces has touched another block. The game ends if any of the accumulated stacks goes over the line at the top and bottom of the screen. Some blocks carry power-ups which, when destroyed, may help or hinder your progress.

Hoshi Saga Ringo

Hoshi Saga Ringo is a collection of twenty-five new puzzles designed by Yoshio Ishii, in which players must figure out the correct method to reveal a star that is hidden somewhere in every stage. The difficulty for each puzzle is indicated by the stars shown just below the preview image for each level, although most of them are actually pretty easy to solve compared to previous iterations in the series.

Too Many Ninjas

Too Many Ninjas is a decent flash game in which the player has to rack up a killer score by knocking down ninjas or deflecting throwing stars. Hold the arrow key to swing your sword in any of the six directions available.

Mighty Jill Off  
(mature content)
dessgeegaPlatformer28.8 MBClick here to download

Mighty Jill Off is dessgeega's tribute to the fantastic Bomb Jack series, created with collaborative efforts from James Harvey and Andrew Toups. Players jump with the Z key, and can cancel this action at any time by pressing the same button again for a smaller leap. Tap the Z key rapidly to reduce the speed of descent while in mid-air.

The game can be finished in roughly ten or twenty minutes with the first try.

Toxic GamesPuzzle179 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Q.U.B.E. is a clever first-person puzzle game that tells the story of an unnamed protagonist trapped inside a maze, equipped with a pair of gloves that allows him to extrude or contract multi-coloured cubes by willpower alone. Manipulating the cubes is as simple as targeting them before pressing the left or right mouse button, although cubes will stop responding to your commands when they have reached the limit of their extension or contraction capabilities.

No tutorial sequence is included with the game, but it really doesn't take more than a minute to learn the controls and start solving puzzles in every room. You can't save your progress though, so be prepared to spend about an hour or so if you're planning to beat Q.U.B.E. in one sitting.
