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.

Karoshi is a puzzle platformer by Jesse Venbrux, creator of the Wubly series and Frozzd. There are twenty-five levels in total, each presenting a different challenge to the player. Press the Z key to jump, and use the cursor keys to move the character around. Tap the X key to shoot once you've acquired a weapon.

Erin RobinsonAdventure6.67 MBClick here to download

Spooks is an excellent AGS adventure by Erin Robinson, where most of the sprites and backgrounds were drawn using MSPaint and nine shades of gray. The story begins as Mortia finds herself in possession of a goldfish on a day out at the carnival. The prize she won from a game of darts is the catalyst of her adventure to seek the meaning of life.

The writing stands out and most of the music employed doesn't disappoint, although puzzles can be slightly perplexing at times. A small drawback to an otherwise amazing achievement, considering that it's a first effort and a sign of things to come.

Rom Check Fail

FarbsAction/Arcade2.52 MBClick here to download

Rom Check Fail is a new action game from the developer of Fishie Fishie and Polychromatic Funk Monkey. Players have to clear the screen of all enemies to complete each level, but the task is made a little more difficult by the random switching of gameplay rules where ideas are recycled and remastered as an odd mix of arcade or console classics from the past.

Use the arrow keys to move. The space key acts as an action button. Press the left alt and enter key to switch between full screen and windowed mode. The game has twenty stages in total.

Icy Tower  
Free Lunch DesignAction/Arcade5.26 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Icy Tower is another excellent release from Free Lunch Design. The story is about a homeboy named Harold, who discovers a mysterious tower that he feels strangely compelled to climb all the way to the top by jumping from platform to platform.

Movements are limited to left, right or jump. Execute a higher jump by running in one direction to gain momentum before pressing space. Chain double or triple jumps to activate combo mode and multiply your score. The screen will move upward constantly, and the game ends if you run out of platforms to land on.

The game can be customized by downloading additional characters to use from the site. Replays can be saved and shared among other players. Simple in design but extremely difficult to master.

Houkaimura (Breaking Town) is an action platformer that plays similarly to the Ghosts 'n Goblins series, where you have to guide an eggplant-headed character through eight levels packed with enemies, traps and boss encounters.

There are a large selection of weapons that you can find and collect, although players are limited to the use of just one type of weapon at any time. Not an easy game, but completely beatable in under an hour or less with repeated tries. You can also switch between windowed and full screen mode by pressing the Left Alt and Enter key.

Swarm Racer

Joseph White, lexaloffleAction/Arcade0.74 MBClick here to download

Swarm Racer is another Ludum Dare competition entry by lexaloffle, creator of Zen Puzzle Garden and Neko Puzzle. The objective of the game is to guide a swarm of bugs to collect all gems in each level. This is achieved by using the cursor keys for directional movement and the Z or X key to change bug formation.

Get all gems before the time limit expires to progress. Certain tiles have different characteristics, all conveniently outlined with sparse but fairly complete instructions found in the main menu.

Dear Agent

cactusAction/Arcade1.79 MBClick here to download

Dear Agent is a short 2D platformer with a unique concept. The objective here is to neutralize the terrorists and destroy all of their equipment before you're allowed to the next level, but players never have enough ammunition or explosives to complete their tasks. The solution here is to use the surroundings and terrain to their advantage, for example blasting away the containing area of a lava and letting the fiery liquid flow towards your enemies, hence killing them instantly and saving you from needlessly using your limited starting equipment.

BrainSplode! is a physics-based puzzle game which puts you in control of a rocket launcher that can be used to fire missiles at pink-coloured brains. The objective here is to destroy all of the brains in the area (marked as green squares on the mini-map) so that you may progress to the next stage, where more brains await for their eventual annihilation at your hands.

You can use the marker in the red box to move the turret around, then click on the launch button to fire a missile. Projectiles bounce off yellow pads, and players can utilize rocket components like thrusters and parachutes to guide their missiles with more precision in latter stages.

YahtzeeAdventure4.66 MBClick here to download

As 1213's journey comes to an exciting conclusion, Yahtzee holds nothing back to deliver the promised end barely days after releasing the second episode.

To recap, 1213 Episode 3 is the third in a series of continuing stories about a mysterious amnesiac who seeks freedom from his imprisonment. The game does have a few shortcomings but overall it's an adventure not to be missed.
