Thrustburst  
UmlautgamesAction/Arcade2.98 MBClick here to download

Thrustburst is basically a remake of an old arcade game which involves navigating treacherous caverns by activating your thrusters using the W, A, D or cursor keys. Energy can be increased by lightly grazing the cavern walls and ceilings, preferably with the tail end of your ship. Activate the Energy Shield by pressing the shift or tab key, and press space or the left control key to fire the Defender Cannon. Use the F1 function key or hold the left alternate and enter key to toggle fullscreen.

To destroy the asteroid's core, simply approach it with maximum energy. The Energy Shield and Defender Cannon must not be used during this final approach. The regular difficulty setting is only fifty kilometers long, but there are two additional gameplay modes to unlock by completing the game. Thrustburst also supports both analog and wired Xbox 360 controllers.

rRootage  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up4.21 MBClick here to download

rRootage is an abstract scrolling shooter game created by Kenta Cho, with Mac, Linux, and PSP ports also available. The game features four modes, each one based on a different shooter.

Normal Mode: This mode is similar to most standard shooter games. The player has three bombs that cause the enemy's bullets to dissolve. The ship also slows down while firing its beam.

PSY Mode: Based on the game Psyvariar, this mode is probably the oddest of all four of them. First off, the player gets powered by scratching enemy projectiles, the player moves at a slower speed while firing and when the player's powerbar is full, the player's ship becomes invincible for a short amount of time. The player can also spin the ship which causes the area around the ship where bullets are scratched to increase, but the ship slows down.

IKA Mode: Based on the game Ikaruga, this mode allows the player to switch between white and black. When your ship turns white, similarly-colored projectiles reflect at the enemy, and vice versa with black. This mode tends to be the easiest of the four because you only have to dodge half the enemy's bullets at any given time, and also because the half that you don't have to dodge end up doing extra damage when you collide with them.

GW Mode: Based on the game Giga Wing, this mode gives the player a shield that reflects shots fired by the enemy and protects the player, but it has a lengthy charge time.

The game has the player fight a large boss. The boss changes form each stage, and there are five stages for each of forty levels per game mode. Stages cannot be played separately, but any level in any mode may be played without playing the lower-sequenced levels.

Arachnos  
BootansoftShoot 'em up7.27 MBClick here to download

Arachnos is an effort by BootanSoft that is reminiscent of arcade shmups from the early 80's. I could not get this to work full screen, but changing to a lower desktop resolution helps. Controls are shown under the configuration menu. Set BLT scale to double for a larger game display window.

The graphics may appear to be bland but does improve after the second level. Several weapons most commonly found in Konami's classic shooters make their appearance here, such as ripple lasers and options to name but two. Your ship does not explode immediately when hit, allowing options to be recovered after the loss of a life.

End level bosses have several attack patterns, guaranteed to test your bullet dodging skills. The asteroids in stage two can actually be used as a temporary shield during the boss battle, assuming that you don't crash into any of them.

7 Days a Skeptic

YahtzeeAdventure1.35 MBClick here to download

7 Days a Skeptic is an adventure game by Ben Croshaw with a horror mystery theme, and serves as a sequel to 5 Days a Stranger.

You play as Dr. Jonathan Somerset, a psychiatrist on a spaceship named The Mephistopheles. The crew discovers an unknown object floating unprotected in deep space during an assignment, and duly transported it into the ship under orders of the captain. This sets the wheels in motion for a disturbing tale with lots of turns and twists before the suspenseful end is revealed.

7 Days a Skeptic contains fewer puzzles and more action elements than its predecessor, and is also made with the AGS engine.

Questionaut is a short point and click adventure game with educational elements, created by the developers of Machinarium and the Samorost series. True to it's name, players can expect to be quizzed on matters such as physics, mathematics and even general knowledge. The game consists of eight short stages in total.

Nanaca Crash  
SU-503Action/ArcadeBrowserClick here to play

Many had proclaimed that Nanaca Crash to be the most addictive browser game of all time, and they just might be right. There is something very enticing about crashing into the main character, sending her sky high and attempting to get her to land as far as possible from her starting point - only to have it repeated at the whim of the player for their amusement and betterment of their previous best effort.

The game remains popular until this day, and no proper list of the best browser games can should even come close to excluding this gem of a time waster.

G-Force

OddbobShoot 'em up11.1 MBClick here to download

G-Force is a brilliant remake that plays very much like a flat 2D Tempest, in which enemies rain down from the top of the screen in an attempt to crash into your ship. Press the Z or Y key to shoot, and tap the X key to activate the special weapon.

Only two directional arrow keys are ever needed, and use of the superzapper is only allowed once in each level. Playing hints can be found in the same forum thread, though simple strategies can be formulated after a few plays. Highly recommended for a quick fix.

Karoshi Factory

Jesse VenbruxPlatformer7.62 MBClick here to download

Karoshi Factory is a new sequel to Jesse Venbrux's suicidal platformer series, where players must find unorthodox methods to kill all suits on screen in order to progress from one stage to the next. Use the Z key to jump, press the X key to shoot once a gun is acquired, and tap the space key to switch characters.

Press the R key to restart a level at any time. The F4 function key can be used to toggle between full screen and windowed modes. Note that touching the blue button causes a random effect, one of which is disabling the character switch function.

Prototype II  
X-0utShoot 'em up54.2 MBClick here to download

Prototype II is X-0ut's new horizontal shooter with a nod to the R-Type series in particular. Shaders can be disabled from the configuration menu if the game doesn't run when this option is turned on. Hold the Z key to shoot or press the X key to manipulate the pod. The A and S keys can be used to change your ship's speed.

Cursor10 2nd Session

Cursor*10 (2nd Session) is a new follow-up to Yoshio Ishii's popular mouse click game, where players have to once again collect all pyramids in each of the sixteen floors with only the ten cursors they're allowed to use as lives. You will direct the action of every cursor, one at a time, with events beginning to loop once the allocated time for that cursor runs out.

The game is largely similar to its predecessor, but contains enough subtle additions to warrant a second play.
