Building Houses with Side Views
Peter BoonPuzzleBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Building Houses with Side Views is a simple Java-based puzzler with a novel premise. Players build houses using basic square blocks as construction pieces, but the building only has to look correct from three different angles, hence block pieces can be conserved when creating a structure that fulfils only these three requirements.

You gain five points for completing a structure that matches the views, but a total of ten points can be acquired by using the least number of cubes possible when constructing the building from scratch. Use the left mouse button to add a block, or right click to remove one. Click on either the build or break down radio button to reverse mouse controls for block placement and removal. Hold the mouse button when your cursor is over the right side of the window to move the camera view around.

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.

Spade Witch is a short vertical shooter consisting of one playable stage, created for the annual Hot Soup Processor Contest. Use the cursor keys to move, and press the Z key to shoot. The left shift key can be used to make your character move slower while focusing her shots as well. Note that the focused shot has to be used frequently in order to defeat bosses quicker.

The game can be played in either full screen or windowed mode.

Line Golfer works exactly like Line Rider, except that you have to play golf on the course that you design instead of riding a sled. A level editor is included, and user created levels can be shared. - oranda

dessgeegaAction/Arcade2.79 MBClick here to download

Tombed is dessgeega's submission for the Ludum Dare 14 competition, a short game that borrows some gameplay elements from Mr. Driller. Danger Jane is on a quest to raid an ancient tomb, but finds herself running away from a ceiling of spikes that threaten to squash her and end her endeavours prematurely. This is where you step in, as the invisible guiding force assisting her with digging through coloured blocks and navigating the winding passages that obstructs her path downwards.

The maze design is fixed, there is only one level to play, and an automatic checkpoint feature has been implemented to prevent frustration from having to restart a stage from the beginning.

Wonderful World is a freeware versus fighting game created with Enterbrain's 2D Fighter Maker engine, featuring thirteen playable characters to choose from, an array of basic and advanced special moves that are distinct to each fighter, and a combo system which expert players can use to chain a series of attacks on their opponents.

The assortment of moves available to you is displayed at the character selection screen, but you can find control instructions for every character in the html manual included with the game zip file as well. Note that you'll need to configure the keys first before starting the game, unless you wouldn't mind guessing what the default key configuration settings are.

You can switch between full screen and windowed mode by using the left Alt and Enter key, while the button configuration option is accessible via the menu bar.

Dungeons of Fargoal
HellboundAction/Arcade1.70 MBClick here to download

Dungeons of Fargoal is a modern remake of Jeff McCord's classic dungeon exploration game. Although this particular effort features updated graphics, it remains faithful to the original in most areas.

Combat is automatically initiated by touching a monster, and the gate to the next level will only open once all treasures have been collected. Dungeons are randomly generated, just like the real thing.

Still fun to play after all these years.

Elebest is a decent Diner Dash clone by Square Enix, in which tables are replaced with elevators and kitchens substituted with buildings. The aim of the game is to place people into elevators and sending them to the floors they wish to arrive at, usually indicated by the color of their clothes. A time limit is shown on the top left of the screen, and players should avoid having a crowded lobby or the game will end.

Certain stations such as a cafe can be used to temporary clear the lobby a little. Bonus points are awarded when more than one passenger arrives on each floor, achieved by grouping a number of them dressed in similar colors into the same elevator. Watch out for men dressed in black, because they do not mix with the crowd and prefers riding the elevator alone if possible.

2 Minutes RPG
TembacAction/Arcade10.3 MBClick here to download

2 Minutes RPG is essentially a roguelike with minor action elements included in the form of basic combat, where players get to name their hero and take him or her on an adventure to save the kingdom from evil beasts, dragons, barbarians and the occasional black knight or two. Created with Mark Overmars' Game Maker, this little project has been diluted to the extent of leaving out character stats, inventory, experience points and even health. What's left is a gold count indicating the amount of loot you've managed to acquire during your short journey, and some additional information shown during the end screen once all usable turns have been expended.

Each move consumes one turn from your counter, while going forward one square in a crypt takes up only half a turn.

D5Action/Arcade15.2 MBClick here to download

Undoubtedly one of the best Qix clones on the PC, the only drawback to be found in Gal Pani X is the use of suggestive images as backgrounds. The gameplay involves drawing lines to uncover parts of a picture while trying to avoid collision with enemy projectiles.

A player has to reveal at least eighty percent of the silhouette to complete the main objective. Most bosses have attack patterns which resemble those found in classic scrolling shooters as well. Difficult to recommend due to it's subject matter but as a freeware remake this is definitely one for the collection.
