My Little Army is clever strategy fun that wears its real-time nature on its sleeve, made from cutesy graphics and carried forward by purely-for-decoration storylines.

Expendable robot Nuts and his fairly useless robot dog Bolts have been picked to test a construction system in this path-drawing puzzle game.

Take some ordinary circular mazes, decorate them with gold coins, spiders and swinging flails, add a ball-shaped ninja and you get a nice physics puzzle game.

The end of the world was never so adorable. Death and his def posse (... that is what the kids say, right?) show up at your home one day, but rather than makin' trouble in your neighbourhood, they just want to shoot some hoops with you. Of course, you can't expect the Four Horsemen to play fair, and on each level you'll have to contend with each Apocalyptic baddie's attempts at hindering your shots.

More cleanly designed that the developer's previous titles and boasting some gorgeous artwork, it's shorter than a coffee break but fascinating nonetheless.
It's an entire philosophy of bot-dom. UpBot is at peace with its purpose in life. It is UpBot. It goes up. It doesn't try to be something it's not. If UpBot needs to go left, then LeftBot is going to have to help it. The makers describe the game as "elegant," and that really is an apt descriptor for the solutions. When you figure it out, everything works together like clockwork. It's the figuring out that's the challenge, and the fun.
Jerry of Jerry's Merry Christmas, today's point-and-click adventure from Carmel Games, really gets into the holidays.

I think that we've all experienced the terror of waking up from a strange dream, not being quite certain for a moment where we are. Fortunately, we usually find ourselves in our own bed, rather than a mysterious town that seems a cross between Hyrule and Silent Hill. For Amea, titular star of Godlimation's new action horror RPG, sadly this is the case. Like so many other protagonists, she has amnesia... and if a look outside is any indication, there may be a few things she'd be happy not remembering. Those who don't mind a little glitchiness in pursuance of effective horror shouldn't forget to check it out.
If you feel your day hasn't had enough silly to fulfill you then look no further!

Zombie meets zombie in this sequel to last year's cheeky puzzle game.

Since my artistic talent can be summed up solely by a picture of a stickman with a lopsided head, I was never good for much in high school art class aside from mixing colours. And, surprise! Here's a game that speaks directly to those colourful skills. (Or, rather, colorful. You Americans is so crazy.) You'll be presented with a particular colour and shade, and then, depending on the mode you're playing in, be tasked to replicate it as best you can by mixing other colours together. It's simple and occasionally maddening, but for some of us, it's as close to artistic glory as we're going to get.
Crush your foes in turn-based strategic sci-fi combat in this engaging game from Indigon.

Escape: The Phone Booth is the third installment in the popular "Escape" series that has you facing off against a phone booth. As usual, there is no plot behind your encasement. All that matters is that you need to escape! The queue of items at your disposal is extremely limited, so you need to make the best of what you can in such a tight space... Ow, my elbow!
If there's one thing all of us could use in life, it's a sense of perspective. At the very least, having one will certainly help you in Blueprint 3D, the new puzzle game from Zedarus .

It's a game that certainly won't leave you blue.

The answers to these questions and more can be found in Condition, a sci-fi platform shooter by abielins and Lycheesoup that's just a little reminiscent of Cave Story.
Monsters never seem to have altruistic agendas. Whether it's scarfing down brains, scaring children, or mucking about with your spreadsheets so you think you did your taxes wrong (the horror!), if a monster comes near, you should probably ready your defenses. Such is the case with Monster TD, a well-illustrated side view tower defense game from Booblyc, the same team behind the physics puzzle game Steampunk.
The power to control the elements... sounds like a sweet deal, huh? Well, the dark lord invading the island where they're kept thinks so too... but unluckily for him you're no ordinary old guy with a stick!

A delightful tropical hotel simulation sprinkled with creepiness, Innkeeper balances local color and global appeal. Come to Sequijor and stay at our lovely inn!

Good morning and welcome to Detarou's amusing wake-up call, Ohayo, a surreal room escape that continues the whacky Detarou tradition. Yes, Detarou greets the morning in some strange, strange ways, but that's to be expected. Ohayo is the usual surreal mind trip through a house filled with odd characters and strange puzzles, sprinkled with a hint of the bizarre. Pretty much like every morning in Detarou-world.
I wanted to start this article by saying how assu___ I felt that your bo___om would be shatte___ by Gaz's new release and how much it lives up to its inc___ible p___ecessors. Sadly, though it seems (puts on sunglasses) I was too eager in removing the reds. Yep, another forty levels of adorably devious puzzles are here in Red Remover Player Pack 2. If you've been wanting awesome tumble-drop physics challenges, look no further: the boxy faces of Red Remover aim to please.

A work of interactive fiction, created by Jon Ingold, that just might be one of the strangest text-based games you've ever seen (in a simple, subdued kind of way). The author removes all meta-commands from the parser, forbidding you do to things like saving your progress. But there's a good reason for this. Fail-Safe immerses you so deeply in the world that even the conventions of playing a game would snap you out of it. And when you start playing, you'll see why that's a crucial part of the experience.

Survive as long as you can against waves of enemies and increasingly badder bosses in Crionuke Games' arcade shooter, nabbing coins to spend on upgrades for your initially paltry plane.

(Though you'll keep your upgrades, mercifully.)
It's a popular misconception that cats have nine lives. In reality they've actually got infinite lives and are forced to restart at checkpoints every time they lose one.

Being an undertaker is ghoulish business... so who can blame you for trying to liven things up a bit?

Unfortunately, all sorts of danger lies in their path: bears, wolves, birds, UFOs...

So, not much different from the present day, really, minus the radiation and the end of civilization. With 5 levels of tutorials and 40 levels of gameplay, Bug Tunnel Defense is short but entertaining. If you enjoy tower defense games, then try out Bug Tunnel Defense with its fun new twist on an old classic. And for heaven's sake, get those darn bugs before they wipe us all out.

The protagonist of Pipikin Games' new arcade puzzler, Crazy Digger, seems to be able to eat all the gem and dirt he wants, and not gain a pound.

A simple and addictive time-waster in the Boulder Dash vein, if one with background music most will quickly mute.
Seething Swarm's darkly adorable and adorably dark hallucination afflicted lapine protagonist is back for more platforming action in Acid Bunny: Episode 2.

Please be aware that this game contains material some might find disturbing, including drug use and suicide.
One of Nerdook's first games was the minesweeper-inspired mystery puzzle ClueSweeper, and obviously he has a soft spot for the genre because he's dipping in that well again to bring you Super Samurai Sweeper. Turn over tiles to fight mooks and earn silver to upgrade yourself. You'll need to make every click count to defeat seven daimyos on your way to the shogun.
