Alleytris
Joseph LarsonPuzzle0.08 MBClick here to download

An experimental version of Tetris created by Joseph Larson, Alleytris is perhaps the best out of the four variations posted in the same Retro Remakes forum thread. Players are expected to build horizontal lines in a well that is only four squares wide, and though the game lacks polished graphics or adequate sound effects this build is actually fun enough to warrant more than a few tries.

Ancients' Tome, The
PondwaterPuzzle5.03 MBClick here to download

The Ancients' Tome is an excellent action game by Pondwater that requires decent memory skills. The first few levels act as tutorials, providing subtle hints on the sequence of icons that is required for each attacking or defensive move.

Barely anything is explained in detail, and the number of sequences to memorize may overwhelm some but this particular effort will reward persevering players with a strangely fulfilling experience. The same developer was also responsible for producing the freeware typing hit Typogun.

Arrange Numbers
TaddiPuzzle1.27 MBClick here to download

Arrange Numbers is perhaps the most brutally honest name for a game I have ever seen. You take the numbers, and you arrange them. That's it. And it's addicting as heck, almost as bad as Chain Factor (although sadly much shorter).

You clear blocks (and the numbers within them) by filling all connected blocks of the same color with the same number. Clicking on any number will allow you to drag it horizontally and vertically, but it will also drag all other numbers in that row or column. Be careful, because if you get too many of the same border color touching each other, it will be impossible to clear them due to a lack of any single number.

The game is over when there are no more possible moves. - oranda

TestawarePuzzle5.79 MBClick here to download

Babel is a puzzle platformer that is inspired by Polytron Corporation's Fez, featuring a flattened 3D world which can be rotated to find new ways to advance. Your objective here is to find all diamonds in a stage to activate the teleport and get to the next stage.

- Windows, Mac
Digital EelPuzzle11.0 MBClick here to download

Digital Eel's Big Box of Blox is a column stacking game with simple rules. Arrange the pieces as they fall, and match blocks in each column to eliminate rows.

Biniax
Jordan TuzsuzovPuzzle0.27 MBClick here to download

When a pair of element is removed, your box will take on the form of the other element in the pair. Press the space key to remove an entire column. This special move is limited and the number of uses allowed is indicated on the right side of the screen.
