Freeware: Colorful Shooting

Download (Click on the first link) This game has to be the ugliest thing I have ever seen. It looks like someone threw MS paint into a blender and poured the result onto a computer monitor. But, as it turns out, there is a very valid reason for the games gag-inducing color scheme. The background is made up of 3 colors, and enemy fire is also made up of those same colors. This means that if an enemy is firing red projectiles, you will not be able to see them when the fly over any red patches of background. Couple that with the fact that the background moves with the player, this title can make for a very intense gaming experience.… Read the rest

Freeware: Magical Jewelry ~メルーの冒険~

Download Magic Jewelry is a puzzle based platformer from Japanese freeware game developer Manny. It features a little witch who has the ability to create magic boulders and place them in front of herself. The object of the game is to use her magic boulders to reach the gems that are sprinkled about each stage. The basic mechanics of the game are pretty simple and it doesn’t take very long at all to become proficient at magical boulder creation. On the surface, Magical Jewelry looks cute, what with the little witch girl running about collecting jewels and all. Don’t let that fool you though, this game does get quite difficult as you progress through the stages.… Read the rest

Freeware: God of Thunder

Download God of Thunder is a top-down action/puzzle/rpg hybrid which, despite the odd combination of play styles, is a hell of a lot of fun. It was initially released as shareware in 1993 by Software Creations, but was officially released as freeware in 2002. It is a classic DOS game and probably rings a bell with anyone who was a part of the 90’s shareware scene. The game has a top-down perspective, reminiscent of an early Zelda game. However you carry no sword. You play Thor, the god of thunder so accordingly you carry a hammer that always returns to you when thrown.… Read the rest

Freeware: Box

Download Well what can I say about this game? The title says it all really. Box. Yep, it sure is. Box is a puzzle game where you have to fit a bunch of smaller boxes inside of a bigger one. That’s it. There is no time limit that I am aware of and the scoring system seems kind of arbitrary. So yeah, little boxes inside of big boxes. You are able to select the level of difficulty and style of boxes and…that’s a bout it. The title doesn’t lie. This is from the same creator as Magical Jewelry, who it seems has an affinity for puzzle games.… Read the rest

Freeware: 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
