Pyramid, The  
Pug Fugly Games, Chris RoperShoot 'em up3.82 MBClick here to download

In The Pyramid, your objective is to guide a protective capsule through the corridors of a pyramid while shooting at any object with the intent to harm. Sacrifice your enemies to the level guardian to open a new passage in each room.

A pretty good remake by Chris Roper, with nothing less than four control options made available to the player. Plenty of additional accessibility functions have been included, such as a difficulty setting, an autofire toggle, display modes, everything but the kitchen sink apparently. Having a monster book to record your previous encounters with the denizens of the sacred tomb is a very nice touch as well.

Knytt Stories  
NifflasPlatformer38.7 MBClick here to download

Knytt Stories is a prequel to the similarly titled platformer which was released recently to critical acclaim by the indie game community. This time around there are four worlds of varying sizes to explore, all accessible from the start with their own respective save slots. Anyone familiar with controls from Knytt would feel right at home here, though the author was generous enough to introduce several new abilities as well for the veterans to discover.

Desktop Dungeons  
Rodain JoubertRPG3.22 MBClick here to download

Desktop Dungeon is a puzzle-based roguelike with an emphasis on resource management, where the health of your adventurer is restored by walking into unexplored rooms or corridors. You can choose to engage an enemy immediately upon finding them, or save the tougher encounters for later after you've gained some battle experience with weaker inhabitants of the dungeon first. That is basically the gist of the game, yet once you've spent about an hour or two with it you'd realize that Desktop Dungeon has plenty of complexity to offer anyone who is willing to learn the advanced strategies, bonuses and random elements that Nandrew has implemented in this gem of a time sink.

There is only one floor to play and a boss character is hiding somewhere in the area, although you can retire from your quest at any time and have the final score tabulated based on your actions and achievements. Players can switch between windowed and full screen mode using the F4 function key.

In Bullet Time, the goal of the game is to survive as long as you can. If things get too hectic, you can activate Bullet Time, which slows down enemy bullets long enough for you to navigate to safety. The highest rank is 'Martha', which requires you to survive for three whole minutes.

Flywrench  
Messhof, Mark EssenAction/Arcade16.4 MBClick here to download

Flywrench is a short action game by Mark Essen which involves using the cursor keys to navigate around mazes. Tap the up arrow key repeatedly to fly upwards, or hold the down arrow key to row. Use the left and right arrow keys to direct your ship's direction.

Certain obstacles can only be passed through by holding down an arrow key. Later levels include moving obstacles or switches, but restarts are quick so very little time is spent on waiting for your ship to respawn.

Destructivator  
Pug Fugly Games, Chris RoperAction/Arcade1.90 MBClick here to download

Destructivator is a retro-style platform shooter by Chris Roper, developer of The Pyramid and Return to Sector 9. The objective of the game is to clear an entire screen of enemies to progress from one stage to the next.

Players can duck enemy bullets or shoot while clinging to a ladder, but your weapon cannot be fired when the main character is in midair. There are twenty levels included in total, which will take some time to beat as the game does not allow continues.

Ikachan  
PixelAction/Arcade0.15 MBClick here to download

Ikachan has been largely ignored by many due to the Japanese text, but finally a proper English version was recently released and made available for download. This translation is much better than the one that has been making it's rounds, with most of the storyline kept intact and understandable.

The game itself is a nice little underwater exploration number that won't take more than an hour or two to solve. Fans of Cave Story certainly wouldn't be disappointed with one of Pixel's earlier work.

Mu-cade  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up6.02 MBClick here to download

Mu-cade is the latest release from Kenta Cho that plays quite differently from all his other efforts. A bit of Robotron: 2084 and Snake, your objective is to stay on the rectangular platform and knock other enemies off it by shooting at them repeatedly using the Z key.

For each enemy pushed off the platform, the tail of your ship grows longer and the score multiplier increases. A longer tail does complicate matters a little as it gets harder to stay on the platform. If the tail of your ship is over the edge, the weight will drag the rest of the ship with it as well.

Fortunately you only need to worry about the front portion of your ship. As long as this part of the ship stays on the platform, you can use the X key to blow up the entire tail and gain some additional firepower momentarily. You will lose the multiplier in the process though.

It gets increasingly harder to stay on the platform as time passes. An extra life is awarded for every 200,000 points earned, so it's important to refrain from using the X key too often unless necessary.

Soup ver 0.9  
YaruharaAdventure7.72 MBClick here to download

Soup ver 0.9 is a production loosely based on LSD, a trippy dream recollection available only on the Playstation console. Choose the first option to play in full screen mode. A different part of the adventure is unlocked for each new game attempted by the player.

Hold the left shift key to look around, and touch a wall to exit any room. Describing the game any further is equivalent to providing possible spoilers.

Space Phallus

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.
