Hoshi Saga Ringoame  
Yoshio Ishii, NekogamesPuzzleBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

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.

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.

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.

(external link)

Kei Mesuda's Arcanacra Black Label is an update of his earlier browser-based vertical shooter release. Another Mode can now be accessed right from the start, and replays of any level by the top ranked players can be watched even if you have not attempted that particular stage yet. Bomb stock is also increased from three to five.

Click on the screen to add credits. Press the Z key to shoot and hold the shift key to target enemies with your ship's homing lasers. Switch between rapid and spread shot by holding either one or both shoot buttons. The boss of each stage can be beaten easily once your ship has a persistent lock on it, especially when the lock weapon has been upgraded.

Push the right arrow key when the main menu is displayed to view the high score table.

Fractal Fighter  
cactusShoot 'em up1.62 MBClick here to download

Fractal Fighter is a freeware vertical shooter by cactus which features a limited palette of only two colors. Each boss consists of different weapon parts that the player has to destroy in sequence, randomly created using a tree generation code. A commendable effort especially when considering that the author spent less than a day to create the entire game from ground up.
