Squid Yes! Not So Octopus!  
OddbobShoot 'em up6.24 MBClick here to download

Squid Yes! Not So Octopus! is an arena shooter created by the developer of War Bus and the Tempest-inspired G-Force. Alien robots from the planet Thwip are invading the home of a mutated radioactive squid, so you must assume control over this deadly creature and drive back the invasion with your patented beams of electro death.

You earn a point for every minute you survive in the game. The enemy assault last a whole eight minutes, and if you manage to make it past that point then the aliens will concede defeat and return to their homeworld, allowing you to have your cup of tea in peace and serenity once again.

Opera Omnia  
- Windows, Mac
Stephen Lavelle, increparePuzzle4.58 MBClick here to download

In Opera Omnia you play a state historian who is charged by his politician friend to come up with convenient theories about migration in the past. Basically, you have to think backwards: if people were in this city during a plague, and if plagues reduce population, that means that they had to have had a lot of people in order to survive that plague: thus, plagues actually increase population if you work backwards in time.

The challenge of each level is that you're given something to prove -- such as prove that 300,000 people lived in this city a long time ago -- and you adjust migration patterns that will show how 300,000 people could have lived in that city a long time ago.

The gameplay may be a bit hard to "get" at first, and a lot of the people I've recommended the game to had a hard time wrapping their mind around the concept, but if you do manage to do it you'll find it a clever gameplay mechanic and some interesting challenges unlike most other games. There's also a pretty well-written story over the span of its 20 levels. - Paul Eres

3D Starstrike  
Urban InteractiveShoot 'em up24.4 MBClick here to download

Uncle's remake of 3D Starstrike is essentially a rail shooter first released on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum over two decades ago, which in turn was inspired by Star Wars arcade cabinets put out by Atari to cash in on the popularity of the franchise.

The first level involves shooting at enemy ships and the plasma bolts that they will fire at you, while the second requires some fancy dodging skills as you strive to avoid collision with turrets and towers attempting to gun you down. In stage three, you'll need to navigate around catwalks and destroy the two purple pipes at the end of the trench to enter the reactor. Blow up all six reactors pods in the final area to destroy the Battlestar and start all over again, albeit with a higher difficulty.

DUOtris  
Binary ZooPuzzle4.64 MBClick here to download

DUOtris is an excellent puzzler from Binary Zoo, makers of Mono and DUO. The name may be slightly misleading as the player is not required to make lines but instead link three or more blocks of the same color together to remove them from the screen.

Throw in the challenge of having two separate grids, requiring the player to shift and arrange two pieces at the same time and you have the makings of a fantastic game. You're allowed to swap pieces by pressing CTRL or space, although this option can only be used if none of the pieces has touched another block. The game ends if any of the accumulated stacks goes over the line at the top and bottom of the screen. Some blocks carry power-ups which, when destroyed, may help or hinder your progress.

Black Market

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.

Beacon  
Chevy Ray JohnstonPlatformer3.36 MBClick here to download

Depending on how good you are at overcoming difficult challenges, Beacon can be a rather lengthy platformer that will take some time to beat. Shadows are lurking in every corner waiting for our protagonist to make a wrong move, but as luck would have it a beacon of light appears out of nowhere to help him illuminate the way forward.

The beacon will occasionally take a branching path that is out of your reach, and you would have to rely on the light from blue and red crystals just as often to progress.

Tower of Heaven Flash

Tower of Heaven is a monochromatic 2D platformer that features eleven levels to play through, originally released by Askiisoft in 2009 as a Windows-only game. This Flash port contains new musical arrangements, achievements, and a level creation system that unfortunately can only be accessed after you've beaten the game once (first-time players are allowed to import levels though).

There are now three secret locations to find (the original had two), and discovering all of them will reward you with a slightly extended ending to watch.

Titanion  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up5.29 MBClick here to download

In Titanion, the ship you pilot has a capture beam that can be used to coax enemy craft to your side. These deserters will form a line formation and act as options, increasing your firepower in the process.

There is a standard level progression implemented, with all captured enemies retained from one stage to the next.

Alter Ego

In Alter Ego, you start off the game by answering a few questions to deduce your personality. Gameplay basically revolves around the use of a tree diagram. You can choose life experiences to explore from this diagram by clicking on the icons. These are social, intellectual, emotional, physical and familial (faces, brain, heart, x-ray and family, in that order).

The hourglass describes your current stage in life and the bar chart shows some stats about your alter ego.

War Bus

OddbobShoot 'em up5.84 MBClick here to download

Warning: Contains strong language and flashing images which may cause photosensitive epileptic seizures.

War Bus is a frantic arena shooter by Oddbob that presents the player with a choice: shoot or be shot. With just the one life at your disposal and the odds stacked against you both in the number of enemies and with the eye-popping visuals, you'll need all your wits to survive.

Battle double decker busses, diggers and handbags unleashed by the alien hordes, all armed to the teeth with laser beams and raging with beastly intent of killing the player. Invoke the spirit of light entertainment by shooting sad clouds to clear the arena and earn yourself some space to breathe.

Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the Z key to shoot. Bullets and laser beams should be avoided at all costs. Destroy a cloud at the right time to activate the Brucey bonus.
