Nanoscape is a decent shooter which has you piloting a ship and seeking escape from an underground cavern by destroying all enemies in each catacomb. Options in the shape of dark triangles can be collected for increased firepower. A number is shown next to each enemy to indicate their current health. Pretty fun.

Mind's Eye is an adventure game by ProgZmax, one of the best sprite designers in the AGS scene. His body of work includes portraits in Duty and Beyond, plus new sprites for Dave Gilbert's The Shivah Deluxe.

Interface problems mar this solid effort. There's no proper menu for the title screen, and the load option can only be brought up by using the F5 function key. The setting of the story is rather dark, but fans of Yahtzee's 1213 series will feel right at home. You assume the role of Noah, a sick amnesiac seeking escape from an asylum.

There's one or two arcade sequences which shouldn't trouble most players. Rather short in length, unfortunately.

Kairuga is a short shooter demo by Kairos, featuring the iconic gameplay system from Treasure's Ikaruga. You can switch the polarity of your ship by pressing the X key to absorb enemy bullets with the same color and charge your special weapon. The emphasis is on scoring where destroying three enemies of the same color in a row will earn you one chain, and bonus points are awarded for getting a high number of chains.

The only drawback to an otherwise brilliant shmup is it's length, with only one level on showcase.

The trend of making escape the room games using Flash, featuring cheap scares and reusing the same old story is killing adventure productions with original ideas rather quickly. The new game from RPGCreations has interesting characters, beautiful backgrounds and a chilling atmosphere thanks to an excellent soundtrack. In Missing, you play the role of an ex-cop in search of his missing wife and child with only a handful of clues as leads.

Most players will struggle with the controls at first but persistence is rewarded with one of the best stories this year. It's important to note that save games are only allowed in your room and nowhere else. This is only because the music doesn't work properly when a previous game is restored, especially when the save was created in other places besides your initial starting point.

Moving your character around can be rather confusing, though a little experimentation will solve that problem in a matter of minutes. A short animation preceeds several room transitions, but this is understandable as it creates a sense of immersion for the players. Including an option to skip these parts will only dilute the experience.

Tension builds up rather quickly after the protagonist settles into bed for the first night. There's a mystery to solve and a few twists in the story that will keep you playing right till the end. At least one easter egg can be found, hinting at a story that may not be as linear as it seems.

A real pleasure to play. Full marks for one of the best games of it's kind.

It's just a character drawn in pixels, moving 3D crates on a 2D plane. But still, The 3-D Adventures of Crate Boy is a pretty good puzzler which doesn't take long to solve. Stack blocks to reach the exit, usually located on a higher ground.

Press the space key to pick up or drop a crate, and use the left shift key for a quick restart. You've reach the end once a secret code is revealed.

Nobuyuki Forces 3 is an excellent rail shooter by SKT Software, developer of several other flash games made available from the same site. A mix of gameplay elements from both Virtua Cop and the Time Crisis series, you're cast as a female super agent on a mission to take down a powerful political leader and put a stop to his nefarious plans.

Use the mouse to aim and left click to shoot with the space key held down. To hide behind walls, just let go of the space key. Left click again when you're behind a wall to reload your gun. Several power-ups can be collected which allows for more bullets in your chamber, restores health or even increases it's maximum limit.

Titles can be earned depending your play style, plus enemies can be shot repeatedly for a points bonus. A boss awaits at the end of each stage as well. To begin playing, just click on either the first or second link on the web site.

Jex Hell Fire is another decent shooter by Ham Corossam which features extremely detailed 2D sprites. There's not much to the gameplay besides a simple shot button, but you do get to replenish your shields by collecting bonus items.

Press the F2 function key to view in full screen. There are three boss fights in the easy and medium difficulty, with a set time limit of four minutes. Choosing the Struggle Jaguar difficulty increases the allocated time to allow for additional boss encounters.

+Cebo is a new shooter by Alice from Japan, and as described by postman this is how Rez would probably look like if it was ever turned into a true shmup. A shield can be activated to negate enemy bullets, though it requires a recharge after a certain number of uses. Hold the Z key to shoot and press the X key to protect yourself momentarily.

Conversations can be skipped by pressing the V key. To play in full screen, change the first option in the configuration menu located just above the resolution select field. The trial version can be a little tricky to download, just find the word 35MB on the web site and click on it. Look for a pCEBO.zip file under the pCEBO folder, which contains the game after unzipping the demo package.

I've recorded a gameplay video and uploaded it to YouTube. Had originally planned to complete the stage without any damage but I got pretty lazy towards the end.

Creative Crafting is another Experimental Gameplay Project that explores the notion of a smithing module for MMORPGs. The idea is to make tools of destruction by striking hot coals with your hammer when they magically appear on each weapon.

Equipments made are then traded for gold, and once you are financially sound an apprentice can be hired to create items previously crafted. Just click on the portrait next to each weapon to save you from the tedious work.

Not much of a game here though I'm quite certain that this is probably more fun than slaying dragons or orcs online.

Overdrive is a shooter made by Jordan Browne using Game Maker, which can be quite difficult to play partly due to it's restrictive controls. Your ship can only move in four directions, and a key press is required for each shot.

But the game does has it's own charms, for example the introduction of boss battles every five stages or so and multiple enemy types which are different in each level. The unlockable menu can be activated by holding the left shift key and pressing Z at any time, although it is quite beatable without any cheats whatsoever.

Missing is an excellent adventure game that uses an interface made popular by ICOM classics, such as Shadowgate or the Deja Vu series. In it, you play the role of an ex-cop in search of his missing wife and child with only a handful of clues as leads. Controls will take a bit of getting used to, and save games are only allowed in your room.

The music is great, and sound effects are well placed in most places for added atmosphere, especially when things start to get rather hairy after the first night. This is pure gold for adventure fans.

It's heartwarming to know that Missing is an indie game production which was originally inspired by another.

Alphasix is a 2D overhead game made in Game Maker, which combines elements from different genres. It's at heart an overhead fighting game, similar to the Street Fighter series: you choose one of five characters and battle in one vs. one battles until you defeat all the others.

But instead of martial arts, you use guns, knives, grenades, mines, and danmaku (bullet curtain) attacks -- inspired by the Japanese genre of the same name. These are special bullet patterns composed of hundreds of bullets which you or your opponent must move around and avoid being hit by.

There are eight difficulty levels, thirty stages, and forty-five danmaku attacks. The controls are a bit complex and the game make take a few hours to get the hang of (a tutorial mode was provided to help ease the learning curve).

The gameplay video can be watched here.

I've uploaded a gameplay footage of MaWaRu Maid-san wo Nemigi to YouTube, a Comiket 70 release which parodies the WarioWare series.

What follows in the video is an appearance from King of the Cosmos, the highness himself (from Katamari Damacy and I Love Katamari). Then some mini games featuring characters from the Touhou series (Touhou Soccer, Mega Mari, etc.)

The first boss fight is actually a very nice clone of Spartan X (known in the States as Kung Fu Master), more faithful than Babarageo's Great Kung Fu. Unfortunately it's only one level long. The cutscene in the last area introduces a character who is barely dressed, and a short tribute to Akuma from Street Fighter.

Some notable appearances include an Afterburner clone and Lethal Application.

A short review was posted back in January, and a demo is available from the official web site. Just click on the red button with the word 'C69' to download the trial version.
 

Another Comiket 70 release, RefRain Prism Memories is a rather poor effort when compared to shmups from other developers. Granted it's only a demo with only one difficult boss fight, though that's no excuse for RebRank to showcase mesmerizing bullet patterns and little of anything else.

Bullets fired by the player doesn't seem to cause damage, and the collision detection itself requires plenty of work. Certain enemy projectiles can destroy your ship just by grazing any part of it, while others will only have an effect if it touches the hit point.

From the author of Mahjongg Solitaire comes DHTML Sudoku. Not Sudoku Deluxe, nor Sudoku Special Edition. This is probably the most accessible Sudoku version available, plus it's free. The fact that you're able to read this post means that you're already equipped to play it. No downloads, long waits or messy interfaces. No Flash version upgrades or Java installations.

I'm not a fan of Sudoku but simplicity, I can appreciate. Click on a square, type in a number and attempt to fill all the blanks correctly. Then click on verify to find out if you're correct. You can even print it! Wonderful creation, especially considering that all puzzles are randomly generated and not drawn from a database.

Chiebura is the latest release by Nepia World, developer of the Snake variant named Mimizu Panzer among other projects. The story begins with a girl who jumps into a local bath with her cat to save her grandfather from drowning. The water will attempt to suck you in as well if your feet touches it, but fortunately you can use the feline to grab hold of magical dots and swing around them.

Shooting is never steady but can be roughly controlled with a bit of practice. An unconventional but surprisingly playable game.

D-Bug is a new top-down shooter by DiezelPower Studios, which plays much like Crimsonland but with better 3D graphics. You assume the role of a soldier stranded on an alien planet, with survival as your only objective.

The option to use a dual analog controller is strangely absent, although the keyboard and mouse combination works perfectly well. Perks are now known as modifiers, with over twenty skills to choose from. Press space to pause the game and make your selection.

Unlike other demos, the trial period is not limited to one hour. There are two other playable modes on offer besides campaign. A nice diversion while the wait for Dogtag continues.

Solomon's Key Remake has the same gameplay found in Tecmo's 1986 release, except with updated graphics and a better frame rate. The inclusion of level codes is a welcomed addition, allowing progress to be saved periodically. Some bloke had conveniently included all the information you ever need to know about it in a Wikipedia entry.

This particular effort may not appeal to younger gamers but owners of the original NES port will be delighted with this find. Simply click on the U.K. flag to change the language to English. Press the Z key to create or destroy blocks and use the X key to jump. Collect the key in each level to open the exit. Sounds simple, but as you will discover rather quickly it's not acknowledged as one of the most difficult platformer without proper credentials.

For the humour in the tutorial alone, it's got to be Frets on Fire. Now you finally get to live your dream of a rock star, have groupies and unprotected orgy fests. But first you must take a lesson from the begrudgingly Juergen, your instructor and the local guitar god extraordinaire.

Learn how to hold the keyboard in the coolest way, and you won't need to spend a few months' worth of allowance on a special controller. Song selection is rather limited, and the game itself is still undergoing revision but this is one title that is already showing plenty of promise. If you're no good with the strings, there's at least one or two good laughs to be had from the experience.
