Lo.Nyan's Room Escape 12

elleOne of the five love languages is gift giving and no gift speaks from the heart more than home baked cookies. But when you live inside Lo.Nyan's house, baking involves more than opening a bag of Pepperidge Farms onto a plate and spreading frosting on top (this method works in other situations, though; believe me, no one would ever question you). Not only do you have to find all the proper cookie ingredients and bake them up proper, you must also escape the room. Ergo making your way out of the lovely and whimsical Lo.Nyan's Room Escape 12 means donning your sleuth's cap under your baker's hat, finding useful items and solving the puzzles sprinkled about the room. This is done easily because of Lo.Nyan's user friendly UI—with a simple point-and-click you can explore your surroundings, pick up items, examine and combine inventory, and even use a camera to take pictures of clues. Any inventory item that works as a clue can be "held": use "about item" then click the arrow to shift it to the left so neither screenshots nor note-taking are needed to solve puzzles. Instead, you can relax a bit in these gorgeous surroundings and concentrate efforts where the fun is at.

Midnight Puppeteer

DoraIn Mascarpone's indie adventure game Midnight Puppeteer, translated by vgperson, Mayo Michino is just your average sixteen-year-old girl with a foul-mouthed, fanged, talking teddy-bear only she can hear. One night while driving home in the pouring rain with her father, the car stalls, and when her father doesn't return after leaving to find help at a nearby mansion, Mayo decides to go looking for him. What Mayo discovers along with her bear Mister Masper, however, is that the mansion her father disappeared into is no ordinary house, and they'll need to solve piles of puzzles in order to uncover its mysteries. Use the [arrow] keys to move, [Z] or the [spacebar] to select and interact, and [X] or [ESC] to open the menu, from where you can save your game. When you find an item, before you can use it you first need to equip it from the menu, and should you find yourself scrabbling through an air vent or three, tap [spacebar] to move forward. Make sure to save often, and in different slots, since it is actually possible to die in some places.

Lori.hTerrible evil lurks beneath the dwarven hall. Lucky for our hero all he had to do was go warn them about this. Unlucky for him, dwarves are stubborn, judgmental creatures and refused to listen and somehow managed to release this unspeakable evil in the meantime. While luck may not be on his side it certainly is for us as we get to play this grand adventure and strategic dungeon crawl. The online demo of Clewcat's DungeonUp is packed with content enough to stand on its own, with thirty playable floors, and multiple boss battles, it will give a good hour or two of hack'n'slash, puzzles, and general dungeony stuff. Collect colorful keys to open the corresponding doors to advance forward to slay evil. But there are more doors than keys and different pathways to chose. You're going to need your wits about you to get through this game alive. With procedurally generated levels, starting over could actually be more fun.

Five Nights at Freddy's

DoraScott Cawthon's indie horror game Five Nights at Freddy's (also available for Android) should probably be called "Half a Shift at Freddy's Before You Quit by Leaving a Scrawled Middle Finger for Your Supervisor to Find the Next Morning". The gist is that you take a job as an overnight security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where all you should have to do is sit around and watch the monitors, though what you actually end up doing is finding yourself being stalked by animatronic horrors who creep through the dark hallways to where you cower in your office, nice and fresh for dismemberment. Your defense? Well, all you can do, all you can literally do, is play with the light switches and close the two doors on either side of you. Temporarily. See, you have a limited supply of power to last you through the night, and keeping the electronic doors closed or the lights on will burn through it much, much faster, leaving you defenseless when it runs out. As a result, you have to watch your monitors, tracking the movements of the unpredictable fur-and-steel murderers, and figure out when it's safe to leave yourself exposed. So, yes, Five Nights at Freddy's is basically proof that the internet has a deep, abiding love affair with jump scares, self-loathing, and trying to make you void your bowels.

Fallin Love

ArtbegottiFall loves Kaisa, but Kaisa only loves dashing pirates. Luckily, there's an extra pirate costume hanging around, you just need to figure out how to get to it! That's the gist of Fallin Love, a puzzle platformer by Chestnut Games and BulkyPix. By twisting and turning your mobile device, you can manipulate gravity, letting Fall drop among moving platforms to collect hearts and costumes, then reach the exit, where Kaisa is waiting to greet her ninja lover.

Wait, ninja? Well, I guess Kaisa likes ninjas now.

KimberlyFeeling blue? We've got a game that can help you start seeing things through rose-tinted glasses. In Colorize, a clever puzzle game, click and drag a shape with a glowing outline to combine it with others of the same color. This causes the screen to turn that color and gobble up anything else of the same hue. Before you move anything, check the border of the playing field. This is the color you need the screen to be very last or you'll have to try again. Press escape to open the menu where you can restart the level or go back to the menu. Ready to paint the town red?

Mystery Trackers: Blackrow's Secret

DoraIt doesn't matter who you are, finding bloody threats and arcane symbols scrawled on the wall like Lovecraft had a fingerpainting class is a little unnerving. You're escorting actress Norma Shine home late one night after the police have been unable to track down who's been leaving her these red missives when an apparition makes you crash, and you awaken just in time to see her being hauled off by a mysterious figure into the Blackrow District. Which, by the way, has been quarantined for almost two hundred years after the plague ripped through it. You know, just to complete your round of Bad Omens Bingo with a win. In Elephant Games' Mystery Trackers: Blackrow's Secret, the latest installment of the popular hidden-object horror thriller adventure series, you'll need to discover what grim truth is behind the darkness of Blackrow, a place that hasn't seen the light of day in centuries but is by no means "empty". Together with your faithful yap-yap dog Elf, who can be used to reach things you can't, and an unstable device that can allow you to see the memories of those long dead, you'll find items, solve puzzles, and maybe think of changing careers to something that involves a bit less mortal peril, corpses, and possession.

Generation Ship

TrickyLight years from Earth, a ship sent to explore a new exo-planet has drastically malfunctioned. Oxygen, food, and energy systems are at critical levels, and all non-essential functions, including the snark-inhibitor of the on-board AI have been disengaged. You, Engineer 34 (aka "stupid meatsack"), have been awoken to deal with the problem manually, and what few options remain might only make the situation worse for those left in cryo-stasis. Still, there just may be a way out of this... Generation Ship is a Unity sci-fi adventure game developed by Shide for the Ludum Dare 72 hour "connected worlds" competition, where a solutions to the cold equations needs to be calculated. Possibly with rabbits. Move around the various rooms of the ship with the [WASD] or [arrow keys], interacting with the various consoles on the ship with [E]. When a console is activated, it will offer choices that can be implemented with [1-9].

Tiny Tower Vegas

DoraIf you love piling things on other things and then selling things out of those things, Nimblebit has you covered with Tiny Tower Vegas, free(mium) for iOS and Android. Though functionally mostly identical to Tiny Tower and its Sith-ier follow up Star Wars: Tiny Death Star, as the name implies, this installment has you building your very own tower in Vegas, which means casinos, lounges, and minigames, naturally. For those unfamiliar with the series, it's best described as an idle game of sorts, with some light simulation and resource management. You don't necessarily play it as much as you ensure it can keep running. You build new rooms when you have enough cash, hire employees to staff stock those rooms (ordering more merchandise when items run out), and perform mini-missions for your guests like tracking down items or booking rooms for their friends. The two main currencies are cash and "bux", both of which are generated/earned in game, as well as a new type of currency this time around... the chip. You earn chips either by completing missions or through random tips, and you spend them on playing the various casino minigames you unlock as you build your tower, which can in turn earn you some sweet, sweet cash. Think of it as a Tomogatchi... your interactions are limited, but you can't leave it alone forever either.

Caves Online

Johnny123Cave diving seems to be all the rage in the virtual world these days. With Minecraft and Terraria tearing up the indie scene and wacky titles like Bazooka Boy 2 eating up our bandwidth, it looks like digital spelunking is here to stay. It was only a matter of time before someone turned into a multiplayer online sport. Well luckily, Caves Online is just that. (You need to create an account to play but it's a quick, simple process that won't require an email address or any such nonsense. Just choose a name and password and you're done!) It's a fun arcade platform game that has you competing against dozens of "ghosts" of other players who've run the course before you. Use the [arrow] keys to jump over obstacles and pits, collecting gold to spend on upgrades and powerups and keeping pace with the ever-sliding view. Die, and you'll need to start over from the beginning. If only real cave diving where this fun.

Lori.hEver had a mysterious phone call from a suspiciously familiar voice, warning you not to do something in the imminent future? It's probably best to listen, unless of course, you're a extremely busy genius who was just about to eat your lunch and check out the latest invention in your lab. Then you're probably okay. Primary Max, by Keybol, is just that, and while most of the game doesn't really have much of a story line, you're still playing as Max as he messes around with his clones in this puzzle-platform game. When you first touch the clone box it records every movement you make until you run over the box again. Then a clone of you takes off to do what was just saved in its memory. Following in the steps of Time Donkey you have to use your clones to get to where you need to be, standing on their heads and using them for a leg up, only Primary Max is a lot more easier to navigate with its platform style of playing.

Manor Memoirs

Starchild The thing about inspiration is that it sort of sucks. You could be halfway through your adventure fanfic mashup of Harry Potter and Spongebob and bam! your inspiration leaves you staring helplessly at the screen in the middle of the Krabby-Patty-cook-off-on-broomsticks scene. This is pretty much what happened to Scarlett (minus the fanfic). She is the protagonist of Manor Memoirs, Playrix's new hidden-object/time-management hybrid – a bestselling author who just can't get herself to start working on her next book. So she takes the only surefire cure for writer's block: she buys a sinfully expensive mansion in the country and moves in. Having neglected to visit the place before buying, Scarlett realises the manor is almost in ruins and in dire need of renovating. This is where you come in. You are an expert interior designer and the perfect person to conduct a series of garage sales to raise the money for the makeover.

History Museum Escape

DoraIn Just Pine Games' History Museum Escape, also available free for iOS and Android, you're up to some 1980s teen-movie style shenanigans and find yourself locked in the museum overnight. Because you don't have Donna Noble with you, you can't just boot the door open (or does that only work in libraries... ?), so you'll need to hunt around for a key if you want to escape, and let me tell you, the person who designed this security system must have been shooting for a "Most Convoluted Award". Just click around to interact and pick up items when the cursor changes, and white text will usually display to provide you with descriptions. If you want to try combining things, or just using one object on another, click one item in your inventory, then the next you want to try to use it with. You'll want to experiment with this a lot, since you'll need to come up with more than one handmade tool before you can find your way out.

Letter Monsters
Doubtlessly you remember Threes!, the addicting swipe-puzzler which gripped us all and influenced the mega-hit 2048. And hopefully you remember Triple Town, the unique match-three game with cute bears and an abundance of trees. These games were so popular and successful for a reason—they demanded attention and required some real planning. But let's play around with these formulae, shall we? Take the basic movement system from Threes!, throw in the rules and obstacles from Triple Town, and stick the grid in a series of finite levels... voila! The outcome is Letter Monsters, a well thought out and deviously cute combine-three puzzler from Presented with cute, colourful monsters labelled from "A" to "Z", your goal will be to combine sister letters to build your alphabet as far as you can. Three A's will make a B, three B's will make a C, and so on. Immovable obstacles and black holes will provide challenges, but certain special monsters, along with eight essential types of boosters, will help you out and make for some exceptionally fierce strategy. Playable both online with the [arrow] keys and on iOS or Android with the swipe of a finger, Letter Monsters brings a fresh aesthetic and a variety of new quirks to a now-familiar gameplay style.
