Houkaimura  
PeposoftPlatformer20.9 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Houkaimura (Breaking Town) is an action platformer that plays similarly to the Ghosts 'n Goblins series, where you have to guide an eggplant-headed character through eight levels packed with enemies, traps and boss encounters.

There are a large selection of weapons that you can find and collect, although players are limited to the use of just one type of weapon at any time. Not an easy game, but completely beatable in under an hour or less with repeated tries. You can also switch between windowed and full screen mode by pressing the Left Alt and Enter key.

Every Day the Same Dream

In Molleindustria's Every Day the Same Dream, you play as a white-collar worker who goes through the same routine of driving to the office daily, but deep down inside his soul he harbours a yearning to take the path less travelled. This is where the story begins, as players try to figure out ways to break away from the monotony of adulthood life.

Made in under a week for the Experimental Gameplay's art game theme, Every Day the Same Dream is a short game that can be completed in under fifteen minutes or less.

White Butterfly  
Linley HenzellShoot 'em up3.83 MBClick here to download
(external link)

White Butterfly is a vertical shooter created by Linley Henzell, developer of the excellent Dungeon Crawl and Garden of Coloured Lights. Players begin the game by choosing one of the four available ships to pilot, with a fifth one only unlocked after you've completed the final stage.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the Z key to shoot, and hold the X key to fire your secondary weapon. A third attack can be executed by pressing the Z and X key together. Hold the left shift key to move your ship around at a lower speed. Use the escape key to access the pause and quit menu.

You would need to level up all three attacks for automatic weapon upgrades. Using just one type of shot throughout the game does not upgrade the weapon, even though it continues to gain a new level after repeated usage.

There are three long stages to play in total.

Tubopac  
Bloody MonkeyAction/Arcade2.61 MBClick here to download

Not content with the excellent Smash TV homage, Bloody Monkey had set their sights on a Sierra classic to remake. Tubopac is the result, with updated graphics and faster gameplay to delight fans of the original. Your objective is basically to collect all oil pellets in each level to advance, Pac-Man style.

There's a boss fight, bonus stages, a save function and difficulty setting thrown in. Everything but the kitchen sink, as they say. The only problem with this polished production is that it's rather short in length.

Captain Forever  
FarbsShoot 'em upBrowserClick here to play

In Captain Forever, you're the captain of a ship named Nemesis, stranded in space without a single clue about your current whereabouts. Fortunately an info buoy is around to help, providing you with some information about the sector you are in and supplying repair modules to rebuild your ship.

By destroying enemy ships with your default laser weapon, you can cause them to drop ship parts that can be attached to your own ship. Additional ship plating, extra weapons and increased thruster power are just some of the benefits to be gained from salvaging intact modules.

Black Market  
(demo)
Big Block GamesStrategyBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Black Market is a space trading game in which you play as the pilot of a spacecraft, transporting goods for a quick profit and earning the experience needed to access other planets around the system you're in. At each port you're usually given the options of trading at the commodities market, installing new weapons or ship parts, talk to patrons at the local watering hole, or purchasing a bigger ship in exchange for the old one if your budget allows for it.

Occasionally pirates or law enforcement ships will harass you on your travels, and you can decide whether to surrender your belongings to them or fight it out and take what's theirs instead.

Garden of Coloured Lights  
Linley HenzellShoot 'em up2.41 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Garden of Coloured Lights is a new vertical shooter by Linley Henzell, creator of Excellent Bifurcation and the popular Dungeon Crawl. This version features three levels, each with a different theme and end level boss. Sound effects are implemented in a very unique manner, in which every shot fired triggers a different sound based on their colours.

There are plenty of options to choose from, though your ship can only be equipped with a maximum of three. Some requires a cooling period to recharge, while others can be fired constantly with no penalties whatsoever. Weapons are upgraded by using them repeatedly, as represented by gauges shown at the top left of the screen.

Nanosmiles  
YaruharaShoot 'em up12.5 MBClick here to download

In Yaruhara's arena shooter Nanosmiles, players have to collect inactive options scattered around each area and use them to inflict damage on the enemies. Hold the Z key to activate your targeting system. Your weapons will automatically fire at targeted enemies if the same button is held down. Press the X key to make your ship travel quicker.

This new version features sixteen levels, twelve more than the original demo released shortly before Comiket 73.

GearToyGear  
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.

Entanglement

In Entanglement your goal is to place hexagon tiles so as to create the longest line possible without running into a wall. The more segments your line has, the higher the score you can achieve.

Use the arrow keys or the mouse scroll-wheel to rotate your tile. Click with the mouse or press the spacebar to place your tile and watch your line grow. Once you have placed as many tiles as you are able, your game will end.
