The Vault

TrickyHello out there in JiG-land! It's Tricky here, ready to offer you a great deal on my new BuildAHumbleIndieRoyaleGalaStarsInABox Bundle XVII! Yes, after me whatever you want, you'll be able to play the following wonderful action, artistic, and arcade titles from the JayIsGames archives. Now some of you may say that these games are "already available for free in our browser" and "the intellectual property of their respective developers"... I really don't have a response for that. So, uh, have fun with this week's trip to the Vault!

  • Dog Fight 2: The Great WarDog Fight 2: The Great War - One of the most fun 2D fighter pilot games of all time, and definitely the best to be found in a browser window, Dogfight 2: The Great War, by Rock Solid Arcade, puts you behind the controls of a Triple Fokker and never lets the action let up for a second. Simple mechanics are the basis for an impressively varied and interesting selection of missions, with a difficulty curve that successfully crescendos to a final set of missions that makes you feel as if you wield the skill of a one-soldier air force. Finally blasting the one enemy ace who's managed to escape your cross-hairs all level is supremely satisfying, and the airborne chaos of battle has never been more fun.
  • A House In CaliforniaA House in California - A House in California, by Cardboard Computer, is the kind of piece of interactive art that really puts the "experiment" in "experimental". Players who approach it will need to try out all sorts of apparently illogical, even nonsensical, actions to progress through the pixelated story. However, the effect is not frustrating, but rather charming. Following a young boy as he travels through the memories of four neighbors, A House in California is a slow-paced, quiet work that evokes the best feelings of nostalgia in those who've played it. A House in California the gaming equivalent of a comfortable bed time story. Grab some milk and cookies, and try it out.
  • RedRed - Developer Case only ever released the first two entries of his planned set of color-themed arcade games, but at least both turned out to be totally and chromatically awesome. Red, in particular, a jazzy arcade mash-up of Missile Command and physics action, proved to be especially addictive. A bit like fending off a meteor attack with a Nerf gun, Red is a simple head-clearing experience that's perfect for relaxation on a break, while still intense enough to keep players shooting to ever higher scores.

While we welcome any comments about this weekly feature here, we do ask that if you need any help with the individual games, please post your questions on that game's review page. Well, what are you waiting for? Get out there and rediscover some awesome!
