Star Guard  
- Windows, Mac
SparkyAction/Arcade2.76 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Star Guard is a 2D platformer in which you play as a spaceman on a mission to defeat an evil wizard, armed with only a gun that fires in the direction that you are facing. A quick trigger finger helps, because enemies have a tendency to spring out of nowhere and take you by surprise. Slow to react, and you'd end up back at the last checkpoint location or the beginning of the level you are on.

The game isn't particularly difficult to beat, considering that players have infinite lives to waste on getting shot at or springing traps. There are nine levels to play in total, and instructions on how to unlock an extra mode are given after completing the entire quest.

Charlie's GamesShoot 'em up9.18 MBClick here to download

Space Phallus is a retro horizontal shooter with a naughty theme, created by the author of Bullet Candy. Here you pilot the disembodied head of a dog, fighting against hordes of enemies in the shape of unmentionable body parts with only an assortment of three weapons at your disposal. Thankfully these weapons can blow away anything that stands in your path, just as long as you use them wisely and sparingly.

There are three stages to play in total, with levels two and three accessible by pressing the 2 or 3 key on your keyboard when the main menu is shown. The game features an online high score table, a special guest appearance by General Custer himself, and is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.

Warning Forever  
HikwareShoot 'em up0.7 MBClick here to download

Warning Forever is a decent shooter by Hikoza T Ohkubo which has remained as his most popular work to date.

The objective of the game is to defeat a seemingly endless number of huge motherships, with every successive boss encounter harder than the previous. Surviving each battle will net you an additional thirty seconds to add to your initial three minutes of play time.

Zen Bondage  
Moppi ProductionsPuzzle23.2 MBClick here to download

Zen Bondage is an untimed, unscored puzzle game in which you must wrap a long cord along a variety of 3D shapes such as a turtle, snake, and rabbit. The rope itself emits a dye that colors the object. The goal is to completely change the color of the entire object, though the only reward is the gameplay itself.

Transformice is a multiplayer flash game, where you control a mouse whose goal is to try and return with the cheese faster than all of the other mice. You are assisted by a Shaman who has the ability to summon various physics-based objects to help the mice get the cheese and get back safely.

The Shaman is a mouse with the ability to summon physics objects, and in some cases must overcome an otherwise insurmountable obstacle to clear a path to the cheese for the other mice. The Shaman is separated from the other mice with various markings on his fur and a feather on his head. The array of objects the Shaman has access to varies from map to map; in some cases, the shaman can't do anything at all.

Vertigo Games, Mr. ChubigansPuzzle13.2 MBClick here to download

Ac!dbomb is the latest release from Mr. Chubigans, developer of Vivid Conceptions and Sandbox of God. The game is basically about defusing bombs, in a race against time to uncover the pistons hidden behind the tiles.

Beams of light can be used to reveal the number of pistons underneath each line of tiles. Just like Minesweeper, you can left click to mark a tile as safe or right click to designate one as a piston. The number of pistons in each level is displayed on the top right of the screen.

Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up2.24 MBClick here to download

GearToyGear is a 3D tunnel shooter which plays like Kenta Cho's Torus Trooper, although in this mission you are only able to control the speed and flight direction of the ship that you pilot. Shots are fired automatically, and if your initial ship stock isn't enough you can also earn extra lives by scoring more points in the game.

The ship's current speed is indicated by the multiplier shown at the top right corner of the screen. The faster you go, the more points you score. Try not to crash into an obstacle or fly into the path of a laser beam while moving at breakneck speed.

For Windows users, the installation of XNA Framework 3.1 is required to get GearToyGear working. Playing the game with an Xbox 360 controller is recommended.

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.
