Weekend Download

JohnBDigging games and shooting games go together like eggs and peanut butter. I'll let you sit and ponder that one for a while, then feel free to come back and play the harmonious selection of games below!

excavatorrr.gifExcavatorrr (Windows, 1.2MB, free) - One can never have too many digging games. Excavatorrr by Hempuli and Noby is a visually simple game where your goal is to find treasure by digging underground. Carry a few items with you as you maneuver through the passageways, such as bombs, ladder kits, and dynamite, to help you deal with the various obstacles packed in the dirt. You'll also have to contend with enemies, although it's usually better to avoid them whenever you can. Make it to the bottom, nab the golden idol, and truck it back to the surface to win.

gunfudeadlands.gifGunFu Deadlands (Windows, 6.7MB, free) - Think you've got what it takes to survive the wild west? Well, unless you have a time machine, you'll never know, will you?! You can, however, see if you've got what it takes to survive in a wild west-themed arcade game by Christiaan Janssen. Move with the [WASD] keys, fire with the mouse, and use bullet time to slow things down for a few seconds. Take out all of the baddies to move on to the next level. You can't go charging into gunfights in this game, as one shot sends you packing. Take it slow, watch the enemies move, and make good use of bullet time and your jumping ability.

angrygorilla.gifAngry Gorilla Machine Monsters (Windows, 2.7MB, free) - A simple shooter by Andrew Brophy with a presentation many games wish they could emulate. Move with the [arrow] keys, fire with [Z], and see how long you can stay alive. Enemies are random, so every time you play you could see something new. The gameplay is really basic, with no power-ups or other bonuses to keep you interested in playing. You'll get several great runs out of the game, though, and the audio/visual package really is something you should check out.

Note: All games have been confirmed to run under Windows Vista and are virus-free. Mac users should try Boot Camp, Parallels, or CrossOver Games to play Windows titles, Linux users can use Wine. If you know of a great game we should feature, use the Submit link above to send it in!

Hated excavator, seems like an awful version of spelunky with more digging. I did like GunFu but the shotgun level is hard.

Played a bit more of GunFu, the AI is awful - the enemies have no self-preservation whatsoever.

In Excavatorrr, the gray tombstone that appears when an enemy or you dies reminds me of the infamous "instant green tombstone" from Robin Hood on the Atari 2600. Anyone else notice this?

Sorry for the double-post, but I just played angry gorilla machine monsters and it was great! It wasn't the gameplay that made it so good, the game itself is not worth playing. What made it for me was THE MUSIC. Wow, what a fantastic techno track, and I don't even like techno. The symphony of bleeps and bloops go on for over ten minuets, hence why the game only has one song. Download it just to hear the song, I think it's pretty great. Oh, and Excavatorrr was horrible.

GunFu Wastelands is one of those games with graphics so simple you can't help but love it. And I can never, ever get tired of the jumping animation, when the little guy leaps sideways in a breathtaking slow-motion, dodging the fatal bullet by just a couple of inches.
The collision detection, on the other hand, is really, really poor: on a certain level, I couldn't reach one of the enemies because the alley that led to it was apparently too small for me to pass. But even with this annoying bug, GunFu is still very (brace for impact...) GunFun!

GunFu was great. The game play worked wonderful, and I did not find any problems with the collision detection. I was able to beat the entire game without any problems. And jump around a corner and shooting three guys is just fun.

Thanks everyone for the comments, and specially thanks to Jayisgames for featuring my game in this site. I am very grateful for the support.

I am working towards improving these areas where you are finding issues in the game (collision detection, AI), your feedback is very useful. Hopefully the next version of GunFu Deadlands will be a lot better. And I feel very proud that most people find the game fun to play, that is very encouraging. Thank you!

Cheers,
Christiaan Janssen
