Japanese developers are pretty obsessed with Moai statues. Nest of Moai is basically an entire game based on the objective of touching these strange structures with your mouse cursor.

Move your cursor over as many statues as possible in thirty seconds, although these tiny little guys will attempt to make matters difficult by popping up in odd places. Large statues require some rubbing, but they do contribute quite a bit to your score.

A collaborative effort between Terry Cavanagh, Hayden Scott-Baron and Alex May, the aim of Bullfist is to acquire as many points as you can in under one minute. This means guiding a herd of bulls, gathering their wounded mates, and destroying everything in their path before time runs out.

Some objects can only be destroyed when the herd is of a certain size. The special bullrage mode is activated when you've gathered six bulls in your stampede party, and you can extend the sequence by gathering more bulls before it ends.

A Kongregate account is required to submit scores online.

FishmanPlatformer18.1 MBClick here to download

Nezumi man (Rat man) is a 2D platformer created in the same style as early Megaman games, where you are in control of a rodent who has to defeat the evil Dr. Gyoniku and his henchmen. Ratman can jump, shoot, slide, and earn special abilities by beating the boss characters in each of the eight levels included.

A hidden bonus chapter can also be unlocked once you've completed the entire game, although it doesn't really take more than two hours to achieve that feat if you're already accustomed to playing difficult platformers by now. The save feature will come in handy if you need a short break or two between sessions as well. You can resize the application window by using the configuration file included in the game folder.

Truck Dismount is a computer game made by Jetro Lauha of tAAt. The game has no other aim but to cause as much damage to the ragdoll physics man as possible. The figure can interact with ramps, a truck and a wall.

Players can sit the man in the truck, on the cabin, on the very top, or stand him in front of it. The player sets the speed of the truck and where the ramps are located, then simply lets the action unfold. Players are given points dependent on how much damage they inflict on the stick figure.

String Theory  
Dillon CowerAction/Arcade3.31 MBClick here to download

Another Experimental Gameplay Competition entry, String Theory is an action game in which you attempt to guide a spider-like entity around vector-shaped landscapes. The adventure ends if you allow the creature to exit past the edge of the screen.

Four of your limbs can be extended by using the numeric keypad, though elasticity is lost quickly and they soon detach from ceilings or walls in a matter of seconds if left unattended for long.

The scrolling speed and screen size can be altered by editing a text file.
