Q.U.B.E.  
Toxic GamesPuzzle179 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Q.U.B.E. is a clever first-person puzzle game that tells the story of an unnamed protagonist trapped inside a maze, equipped with a pair of gloves that allows him to extrude or contract multi-coloured cubes by willpower alone. Manipulating the cubes is as simple as targeting them before pressing the left or right mouse button, although cubes will stop responding to your commands when they have reached the limit of their extension or contraction capabilities.

No tutorial sequence is included with the game, but it really doesn't take more than a minute to learn the controls and start solving puzzles in every room. You can't save your progress though, so be prepared to spend about an hour or so if you're planning to beat Q.U.B.E. in one sitting.

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.

Sandbox of God, The  
Vertigo Games, Mr. ChubigansPuzzle7.45 MBClick here to download

The Sandbox of god is a puzzle at heart, where every decision you make affects your outcome in the end.

You can use each godly power only once. Heavily inspired by GROW, you have many different choices so there really isn't a set path to follow.

Every Extend  
OMEGAShoot 'em up9.76 MBClick here to download
(external link)

OMEGA's Every Extend is quite the departure from standard shoot 'em ups. The objective of the game is to detonate your ship in the midst of your adversaries. Enemies appear in random patterns, hence positioning and timing are both important in setting off a huge chain reaction and earning a healthy combo bonus. Every time this ability is used, one extend is deducted from your total although it's possible to replenish this counter by getting high scores for each detonation.

Unblade Senki

Unblade (Record of War) is a 2D platformer in which you play as a frog carrying an indestructible umbrella, on a quest to find a kidnapped princess and rescue her from the clutches of an evil minion. Along the way you can collect power-up items that could be used to destroy floors or walls, replenish health, bombs that help you jump higher, and even the occasional invincibility spell or two to help you through a tricky section in a level.

There are seven stages to play through in total. You may have to rename the executable files to get the game working on PCs that do not have native Japanese text support installed.

Evacuation is a game of strategy, quick wits, and explosive decompression. Aliens have invaded your cargo hold, and the only way to get rid of them is to vent them into space.

Left click on the doors to open and close them, or click on the floors to place a flag for your crew to rally around. The game ends if you accidentally evacuate the captain or lose all your crew.

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.

Devil Ronin  
Howard Kistler, Paul Pridham, Mike FraleyAction/Arcade12.6 MBClick here to download

Devil Ronin is an original C64-style game created for the Retro Remakes 2008 competition, where players assume control over a rebel oni who has sided with humanity and seeks to rid Japan of the demon scourge plaguing the entire country. This will involve travelling from one prefecture to another as he makes his way north for the final showdown with the Demon Shogun.

Use the cursor keys to move, press the left shift key to attack, and hold the space key to jump when in castle combat mode. Visiting areas with a story scene rewards your warrior with a suit of armor or full health. To navigate the map, simply press the corresponding arrow key shown under the name of any neighbouring prefecture.
