Magic Mop

Magic Mop
Download Magic Mop is a nice little time waster for the PC by Japanese freeware developer Studio Cyber Junk Project . The game consists of little maid waxing floors with the goal being to wax each section of the floor without going over the same spot twice. It seems like a simple concept and it is. That is seriously the whole game in a nutshell. The first few stages are painfully easy. There is almost no thought involved and one could just about do them blindfolded. It’s not until the later levels that you must begin to think ahead and plot out the best plan of action in advance.… Read the rest

Legend Cave

Legend Cave
Download Legend cave is a free RPG/platform hybrid from Japanese freeware developer Bombalmen. The game is completely in Japanese, however that shouldn’t stop anyone from enjoying it as there is virtually no dialog. It is not a story rich epic journey type RPG, but rather a ‘you VS everything’ survival type of game. The game opens to the developer’s logo and then straight into the main menu. First time players of course will want to start a new game, which is the first option on the screen In Legend Cave, you choose from one four character types, as well as their gender.… Read the rest

わなx2 – Wana x 2

わなx2 – Wana x 2
Download WanaX2 is a ghost catching game. Kind of like that that movie Ghostbusters, but with less Bill Murray. The word “wana” typically means “trap” in Japanese, which would explain the whole ghost catching side, but I’m not sure about the “x2” part. Mind you, I doubt anyone at all really gives a shit anyways. The basic mechanics of the game are very simple. You simply move around the play area (which is a single, non scrolling screen) and lay ghost traps in the hope that a one of the ghosts prancing around the room will wander into it and get trapped.… Read the rest

Magical Broom Extreme

Magical Broom Extreme
Download Magical Broom Extreme is completely insane, balls to the walls, seizure inducing, mind numbing fun for the whole family. This game is like that kid at school who had ADHD, only this is a computer game and not a small child. It’s a side scrolling shooter on crystal meth. It’s awesome. I really enjoyed this game, despite not really knowing what the hell was going on. First of all it’s snowing in the game, and you control a little witch riding a broom stick (hence the name) who fires magic bullets (or something) out of the end of her broom (I think).… Read the rest

漆黒のトラペゾヘドロン~The Trapezohedron of the darkness~

漆黒のトラペゾヘドロン~The Trapezohedron of the darkness~
  Download I stumbled upon this game the other day and was impressed by its smooth animation and solid gameplay. Trapezohedron is a 3D vertical shooter by indie developer EAXREG, however much like that newest installment of Raiden, it retains the mechanics of a 2D shooter. Trapezohedron, according to the internet is: the dual polyhedron of an n-gonal antiprism. Its 2n faces are congruent kites (also called trapezia in the US, trapezoids in Britain, or deltoids). The faces are symmetrically staggered. I hope that clears up any confusions you may have had. The back ground moves all over the place (I think I almost got motion sickness at one point) and looks great.… Read the rest

Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee
Download Bruce Lee (the game, not the ass-kicking movie star) was made in 1984 for the Commodore 64 and published by Datasoft inc, which later went bust. The remainder of the company was actually bought out by two of their ex-employees and re-branded as IntelliCreations, which also went bust. Random piece of trivia: Their biggest investor was Gilette, the same company that makes razors and shaving cream. Go figure. Anyways, Bruce Lee the game is a 2D side scrolling action/platformer with the late and freaking awesome Bruce Lee as the playable main character. The 8-bit graphics are rather simplistic but do manage to create a surprising amount of atmosphere while the sound effects are about what you would expect from the Commodore 64.… Read the rest

Rolling Hamster Kids ころくるハムスターキッズ

Rolling Hamster Kids ころくるハムスターキッズ
Download Have you ever wanted to see four hamsters body slamming the shit out of each other and roll into fences? Of course you have, and this is your chance. Rolling Hamster Kids is so much fun it hurts. You start the game choosing what kind of game mode you want. You can choose a one on one battle right through to a four player free for all. The game can be played with four friends and can also be played over a network. I haven’t tested it though, as my two best friends Jack Daniels and Johnny Walker weren’t interested.… Read the rest

Destruction Desire

Destruction Desire
Download This game is freaking awesome. It’s a 2D fighter, similar to Guilty Gear, which seems to have been made with some kind of fighting game making kit. The graphics in this game are fan-fucking-tastic and fluid as hell. It really is a nicely polished piece of work. Unfortunately the creator has given up on the game making business (according to his website) which is a shame, but it can’t be helped.The game isn’t exactly new on the freeware scene and I wouldn’t be surprised if a few die hard Otaku out there have already played it, but whatever. I like this game so I’m gonna review it.… Read the rest

Nezumi Man

Nezumi Man
Download Nezumi means Mouse and Man means Man. That’s pretty much all you need to know about this games mascot. Starting the game up I find that the game window doesn’t quite fit in my laptops screen. Oh well. As soon as it starts I know what I’m in for; a Megaman clone. The level select screen is the same, the controls are the same, the attack is the same (only you can’t do a charge shot for some stupid reason). Despite this, after a few minutes of play time you do somewhat forget that it’s a blatant rip-off. Well allmost.… Read the rest

Riah

Riah
Download RIAH is a freeware platformer that looks and plays a lot like a classic NES or SMS title. It looks very “8-bit”. You play a heroine who is going on some sort of quest for some reason or another. Absolutely no story is given in this game, but it is actually kind of nice not to have to sit through screens of back story and some bullshit training mode before you can even start playing the game itself. You start with a kind of extendable long sword as your main weapon. It took me a little while to realize that you can change your primary weapon to either a projectile (some kind of throwing dagger), a hammer that flies up in an arc or a kind of spiked Frisbee/boomerang that flies forward at first, then curves and flies towards the opposite edge of the screen.… Read the rest
