Samorost 2  
(demo)
Amanita DesignAdventureBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Samorost 2 by Amanita Design is a flash game that is free to play online for the first few chapters. The second half is included in the downloadable version once you have purchased it.

The developers have chosen to use graphics to portray the story, so there's practically no text to read throughout the entire journey. Most puzzles are solved by figuring out the order in which the items on screen are supposed to be clicked.

Sonic Ironstorm: Fatal Attack

Sonic Ironstorm: Fatal Attack is an updated version of DHC's earlier 3Punge competition entry. Hold the Z key to shoot, and press the X key to launch a missile. The secondary weapon can be used repeatedly without any penalties.

Collectibles marked S increases your shield count, while acquiring items marked P upgrades your firepower in small increments. There are six stages to explore, though one is marked as a secret and players are only allowed to take on a maximum of three missions in each game.

Chalk  
Joakim SandbergAction/Arcade3.85 MBClick here to download

Chalk is a unique action game by Joakim Sandberg which places emphasis on drawing to solve problems that the player will face in each of the six levels.

The right mouse button controls movement, while the left is used to draw lines. Only one line of a certain length can be on screen at any time, determined by a gauge shown at the top of the window display.

Geometric shapes can be removed by drawing lines across each of the green dots on them. Enemies are destroyed by drawing a line from a purple bullet to a ship. Blue shapes can be picked up and thrown around.

Beating all six levels with A ratings unlocks the endurance challenge.

Shift 2 is a platformer with puzzle elements based on the idea of shifting dimensions. Use the cursor keys to move your character, and press the space key to jump. The left shift key can be used to switch positions.

The game is rather short, but achievements and medals have been included in this sequel to extend replay value by a small measure.

Beacon  
Chevy Ray JohnstonPlatformer3.36 MBClick here to download

Depending on how good you are at overcoming difficult challenges, Beacon can be a rather lengthy platformer that will take some time to beat. Shadows are lurking in every corner waiting for our protagonist to make a wrong move, but as luck would have it a beacon of light appears out of nowhere to help him illuminate the way forward.

The beacon will occasionally take a branching path that is out of your reach, and you would have to rely on the light from blue and red crystals just as often to progress.

Zugya DX  
Chinchilla SofthouseShoot 'em up7.91 MBClick here to download

Zugya DX is an excellent shooter from Chinchilla Softhouse that can be described as Robotron: 2084 in space. Arrow keys control the ship's movement, and your shot direction is locked when you hold down the X key. Pressing the C key will activate your plasma charge, which is basically a short moment of invincibility.

Your main targets are the space stations which you have to destroy by shooting at it's core. It won't be easy as they're usually protected by substations equipped with all sorts of defensive weapons. Some of the substations carry power-ups which you can collect to boost your spread shot.

When the game starts, click on the joypad tab, input patch and the largest button to configure default keyboard controls.

1213 Episode 1  
(mature content)
YahtzeeAdventure4.66 MBClick here to download

1213 Episode 1 is the latest game released by Yahtzee, as he continues to push the limitations of an aging AGS engine. Not content with Galaxy of Fantabulous Wonderment, he has created a platformer with some adventuring bits that combines the best elements of Prince of Persia, Another World and Flashback with a touch of horror thrown into the mix.

Follow the story of an imprisoned amnesiac as he seeks to escape from his captor, a mysterious figure who addresses his prisoner as a number, hence the title. Like Mechner's classic, the protagonist can jump and climb ledges by pressing Space or pushing the up arrow key.

You're armed with a gun that can be fired repeated by holding down the TAB button. There is a bit of inventory management involved as your character can only carry a single item at any one time. A tutorial has been worked into the story seamlessly so you can get a feel of the controls without even noticing it.

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.

Typhoon 2001  
Thorsten KuphaldtShoot 'em up3.09 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Anyone familiar with Tempest would definitely be interested in Thorsten's Typhoon 2001. Use the left and right arrow keys to move the ship around the stage, and hold the space key to shoot. A superzapper can be used by pressing the enter key. Avoid spikes when warping to the next level.

Not a standard vertical or horizontal shooter but quite simply one of the best freeware Tempest remake yet. Ace, indeed.

Prototype II  
X-0utShoot 'em up54.2 MBClick here to download

Prototype II is X-0ut's new horizontal shooter with a nod to the R-Type series in particular. Shaders can be disabled from the configuration menu if the game doesn't run when this option is turned on. Hold the Z key to shoot or press the X key to manipulate the pod. The A and S keys can be used to change your ship's speed.
