Ad Nauseam 2

cactusShoot 'em up1.61 MBClick here to download

Ad Nauseam 2 is an intense 2D shooter from the prolific Swedish developer cactus, and fans of Seizuredome or Burn the Trash will find something to like in this release. Press the Z key to shoot, and tap the X key to activate the shockwave effect. Hold both buttons to activate the alternate fire. Using either of these two specials will deplete your circular power gauge, shown discreetly in the background.

Collect four green pluses to upgrade your weapon by one level, but be sure to avoid red minuses which downgrade your ship's firepower. Use the F1 function key to switch between uncensored and safe modes. Press F2 to turn off motion blur, or F3 to disable screen shakes.

The game has three phases in total, and your fastest completion time is submitted online once you've beaten the final boss. Playing on the easiest difficulty setting doubles your time on the high score list.

Blocksum  
Circle infotechPuzzle32.1 MBClick here to download

Blocksum is a puzzler with simple rules but addictive gameplay. Join a number of tiles together by using the Z key, and their corresponding number increases. Gather a large group of blocks with the same number to make them disappear. Grey orbs can be used to remove all blocks with the same number on the field simply by connecting it to a tile.

Hold the X key to move the tiles upward. Press the C key to access a pause menu. Requires the latest DirectX version to run.

Puzzle veterans will love the possibilites of chaining up combos with this one. Highly recommended.

Markus Persson's Minecraft is a block-based sandbox building game originally inspired by Infiniminer, but one that requires no installation of any software to play.

You can add or remove blocks using the left mouse button. Right-click to switch between removing or adding blocks, and use the numeral keys to change block type. Creative players can build anything from houses, mazes, towers and even castles with their own moats and bridges with just a little time spent on construction.

Pyramid, The  
Pug Fugly Games, Chris RoperShoot 'em up3.82 MBClick here to download

In The Pyramid, your objective is to guide a protective capsule through the corridors of a pyramid while shooting at any object with the intent to harm. Sacrifice your enemies to the level guardian to open a new passage in each room.

A pretty good remake by Chris Roper, with nothing less than four control options made available to the player. Plenty of additional accessibility functions have been included, such as a difficulty setting, an autofire toggle, display modes, everything but the kitchen sink apparently. Having a monster book to record your previous encounters with the denizens of the sacred tomb is a very nice touch as well.

Veck Special Edition  
Ayden WolfShoot 'em up1.67 MBClick here to download

Veck Special Edition is the latest in a line of Geometry Wars clone for the PC. Graphics are great, the effects are mesmerizing, plus the enemy ships have their own specific behaviors and attack patterns.

Using directional firing is advised, although a joypad is still the best choice for these sort of games. You can guide your ship towards a corner to survive for the first five minutes, but it's not such a safe haven when the portals begin to appear.

A new type of enemy is introduced every minute, and your ship gets a weapon upgrade when that happens. You will be rewarded with the ability to fire hundreds of bullets per second for lasting at least ten minutes in the game. Shields automatically regenerate over time.

Prototype  
X-0utShoot 'em up19.1 MBClick here to download

Don't be misled by the name, Prototype is no half-finished effort. Featuring a pod that you can use to direct your shots, the game only showcases one level but it's long enough satisfy most shooter veterans.

There are quite a number of power-ups to collect, which is always an added bonus.

Warning: Contains strong language and graphic scenes.

The White Chamber: International Edition is a new version of Studio Trophis' debut effort. Smaller than it's predecessor, it includes four new endings and voice acting as well.

(external link)

A collaborative effort between Terry Cavanagh, Hayden Scott-Baron and Alex May, the aim of Bullfist is to acquire as many points as you can in under one minute. This means guiding a herd of bulls, gathering their wounded mates, and destroying everything in their path before time runs out.

Some objects can only be destroyed when the herd is of a certain size. The special bullrage mode is activated when you've gathered six bulls in your stampede party, and you can extend the sequence by gathering more bulls before it ends.

A Kongregate account is required to submit scores online.

(external link)

Acidbomb 2: Rearmed is the latest puzzler by Mr. Chubigans, developer of Vivid Conceptions and Sandbox of God. Much like it's prequel, your objective is to defuse bombs in multiple locations by using advanced deduction skills and quick thinking.
