Archives For Free Games Friday

Hello and welcome back to Free Games Friday, your source of all things free. It’s been quite awhile since I posted one of these, so I’m coming back with a vengeance with 9 brand spankin’ new games for you to enjoy.

 

yume-nikki-3d-2

So I was going to do a halloween themed week, but little known fact about me (or possibly a well known fact) is that I’m not very good with horror games. So that didn’t happen. I did decide to give you guys at least one horrorish game, which is this very well done 3D remake of a classic title: Yume Nikki. This game falls firmly into the “surreal” category, as you wander through the dreams of a young girl, collecting various effects and exploring the world within. While not a true horror game, the combination of the music and visuals serve very well at giving off an uneasy feeling, and you’ll keep going, wonder what awaits you around the next corner. This game can be downloaded by following the link here.

 

The Scorpion Box

This next game is a fun and somewhat random point and click game called The Scorpion Box. In this game, you have a turtle in a little box, and inside the box is a scorpion. Your goal is to retrieve the turtle and find a way to dispose of the scorpion without getting killed. With multiple endings and solutions, this one is sure to keep you guessing. You can play this game here.

 

flying-kick

Next up is a puzzle game known as Flying Kick. The goal of this game is to make it to the door at the end of every level. Your only method of travel is by… well, flying kicks. You have to use your limited movement options to make your way to the door, usually by stacking items and avoiding traps. This game can be played here.

Finally, The next set of games are kind of interesting. These games all utilize the same save file, under the program known as SHARECART1000, a game designing program that allows you to make some fun and fairly interesting games. I’ve only tried a couple of the games from these so far, but what I have played is really fun, and they are certain to add more games as time goes by. Do be warned though, due to all games using the same save file, you are require to have all your games in the same place. So just remember that when you extract the games, to put them all in the same folder. You can see all of the games that are currently out here, and they are sure to add more as the days go by.

 

 

That’s all there is for this week, hope you come back another time for some more free games.

Free Games Friday

Duckie —  18/10/2013 — 2 Comments

Welcome to Free Games Friday, your source for free games. I missed last week and I have no reason or excuse for it. However, to make up for this, I will be giving you four games to play, two of them are download only, and two of them you can play right on your browser.

 

The first game is a cute little puzzle game that’s part Bomberman, part block puzzle. In Explod (which I couldn’t find or make a decent image of, sorry), your goal is to get to the exit, signified by the big black door. However, there are walls in your way that prevent you from just walking straight to them. Thankfully, you have some bombs around you, which are more than enough to take care of those pesky walls. Lighting a bomb will start a brief visual countdown, which only moves when you do. The bomb will explode once the fuse reaches the bomb, destroying any walls it’s touching, or lighting another bomb if it gets caught in it’s explosion. You have to navigate your way through the levels, getting to the entrance while avoiding the bombs yourself, or else you’ll be killed. You can find this game here.

barons-gate-icon-1

Game number two is called Baron’s Gate. This one is a sidescrolling Shooter/RPG/Platformer type of deal, where you play as a soldier with a bow. As you progress through the levels, you will find new equipment to use, which have a variety of abilities and the like, from poison arrows to ice arrows. At the end of many of the levels you will fight a boss, which provide a greater challenge and test your skills and equipment up to this point. Be warned though, this game is tough. If you’re looking for a challenge, then you can find this game to play here.

metal-shinobi-assassin-4

Third up today is a Japanese title, known as Metal Shinobi Assassin. In this Contra/Metal Slug clone, you play as a… well, metal shinobi assassin. Armed with weaponry way advanced for the era, you plow your way through various enemies, dodging bullets and killing to your hearts content. Much like it’s inspirations, this game is fairly unforgiving, but it’s all good fun. This game can be downloaded here (just click the big blue link).

title1

And finally, my personal favourite game from this week’s list of game, Null Divide Plus. In this top down shooter, you play as a spaceship pilot who is running low on supplies, and comes across a seemingly abandoned space station, which you scout out for fuel and other supplies. You are given a free range of motion within each level, where you have to find various upgrades as well as 3 colour coordinated keys, which allow you to access other areas of the level, and you can only face the boss if you have all three. With fun puzzles and a challenging difficulty curve, this game is sure to keep you entertained. You can download the game here.

 

And that’s all folks, see you next time for more Free Games Friday.

It’s time for Free Games Friday, ignoring that this is being posted very early Saturday morning. Today I have three (!) games for your enjoyment.

enough_plumbers

I’m kind of cheating on this first game, because it’s actually a two for one. Enough Plumbers is a puzzle platformer that pays homage to everyone’s favourite princess saving plumber. In this game however, any time you touch a coin you spawn a new plumber, until eventually the screen is filled with them. Using these various bodies, you have to navigate the various challenges, reaching the flag. It’s extremely fun and a lot harder than it sounds! You can find the first game here, and the recently released sequel, Enough Plumbers 2, is right here.

Speaking of princesses….

sorrymariobros

Sorry Mario Bros. takes the concept and flips it on it’s head, giving the damsel in distress the ability to jump, and thus allowing herself to rescue herself. Recreating three of the original Super Mario Bros. levels, this time you play them in reverse. While the game isn’t perfect (it was created over the course of two weeks), it’s a fun experiment in taking old games and flipping them on their head, which has become almost a genre in itself. This particular game can be found here.

Finally, how’s your math skill?

thehighroad

This final game doesn’t really relate to the other games, but it’s just too good for me to not post as soon as I possibly can. In this game, named The High Road, you play as a janitor. The place where you work (I haven’t beaten the game yet so I don’t know very much), which appears to be some form of insurance agency, has been devastated on the inside. You travel through the building, trying to determine what happened (while cleaning up some of the mess along the way). Featuring a cast of fairly interesting characters, and a math based (yes, you read that right) combat system, this is an extremely interesting and fresh take on the RPG genre. If you’re a fan of RPG games, then you should enjoy this one, even with it’s strange and unusual combat system. You can download the game here.

That’s all for this week folks, tune in next week, where I’ll hopefully be on time.

Okay so there was only a week’s break but still. Welcome back to Free Games Friday, where you get free games and the developer gets the recognition for their hard work, so everybody wins! As usual I got two games for your enjoyment, and both of them are ones that you can play right in your browser (for once).

Pause Ahead

The first game is from the creator of the fairly well known Tower of Heaven, and it is entitled Pause Ahead. In this game you play as a mysterious young girl who wakes up with no memory or idea of where she is, and you have to go through a series of trials (yes it sounds kind of like Portal). To say anymore would be spoiling it, though do be aware that the game is very hard, and some patience will be needed. You can play the game here.

TLT

The next game on our list is a refined version of a game created for a 48 hour game making tournament, known as The Last Tango. In this quick and fun game, you play as a newlywed couple on their honeymoon. However, there’s a twist. Said newlywed couple are actually international spies, and have a whole boatload of other people who want them dead. It’s your job to make sure they stay alive. With simple controls and a fun concept, this game is sure to keep you amused for a little while. The game is available to play online here.

That’s all for this week folks, tune in next time for more fun and free games!

Welcome back to Free Games Friday, your source for well… free games. Today’s games are from the Ludum Dare, a game design competition where people are given 48 hours to make a game. Currently on Ludum Dare 27, with a theme of “10 seconds” these games are meant to be quick and fun to play, so once you’re done with these games I post here, I urge you to go to the Ludum Dare homepage and try out some of the other fun and interesting entries. These were just my favourites that I played.

Last Words Logo

Game number one is a bit of a somber entry. You work as a transcriber at a series of executions (in this case three) and you have to record the last words of the people being executed. However, your only method of hearing them is through an old one-way radio, which occasionally cuts out, making it so you have to fill in the blanks sometimes. This game is not perfect by far, but for a 48 hour effort I see a lot of potential for this game, and hopefully the developer will expand upon this and make a full fledged game, since I think he’s got a potential hit on his hands. You can play the game online or download it from the Ludum Dare entry page here.

NXTPWN10 Logo

The second game in the entry is called NXTWPN10, and is an enjoyable experience for pretty much the exact opposite reason as Last Words. In this game you play a small space ship, using the WASD keys to move and the mouse to aim and fire. You go through several rounds, all of which last ten seconds. If you defeat all of the enemies on the screen, then you get bonus health, but you only need to survive the round to win. Every round you are given a new weapon, some of which are admittedly better than others. A small warning on this game though, as there is quite a bit of flashing, so be warned. You can find the link to play this game online at it’s Ludum Dare page here.

Once again, feel free to check out other entries from the Ludum Dare, and chances are I’ll be highlighting some of my favourite games when they eventually do Ludum Dare 28. For now, enjoy playing and see you next week.
