The Vault

DoraJust because you don't have any dragons to rout, or super-villains to web up, or darts to play with your rotund needy cousin doesn't mean you're not going to get a dose of action in your day. That's what you have us for! And while we could get your heart racing by filling a jar with deadly hobo spiders and tossing it into the shower with you, or strapping you into a Saw-like contraption where you had to chew your leg off or be forced to watch the entire series of Steven Seagal: Lawman, apparently our lawyers think it would be safer just to give you a list of some really cool games instead. Feh. So here's your games... but... if you ever want to go do wheelies in the parking lot of a Dunkin Donuts in front of the cops after totally overdoing it on iced mochas, you know who to call to feel truly alive!

  • The Last CanopyThe Last Canopy - You guys, sometimes you really bum me out. I can be rockin' out, feeling pretty good about myself, and them all of a sudden I remember the sort of content you just spurt out effortlessly for our Casual Gameplay Design Competitions and I remember how woefully inadequate I really am. Wan Hazmer is a great example of this, and after spending just a little time with this shooter that took him both first place and the audience award for our 5th competition, you'll see why. Blast bosses and soar through a ruined world where only one tree remains, and you control a fairy with special powers trying to return a bird to its nest. It may sound cute and girly, but with its rich design, fast-paced gameplay, and unique setting, this "bullet heck" shooter is more than deserving of the time it'll steal from you.
  • Fat CatFat Cat - Interwebs and cats go together like peanut-butter and chocolate (or chocolate and chocolate if you have a peanut allergy), so you knew this had to be on the list somewhere. Nitrome ladles up some sumptuous style and arcade shooter action in this game about a flying pudgy feline with a tendency to explode, and a smaller, flying, blasting kitty tasked with getting him safely through each stage. The catch? You control them both simultaneously, with mouse and keyboard, and calling it tricky is an understatement. If you feel up for the challenge, Fat Cat is an undeniably silly and gorgeous way to get a bit of arcade into your afternoon.
  • Chibi KnightChibi Knight - If you're looking for a game with all the sword-swinging action of yore that gets you right in the hhnnnnnngh!, then look no further than the aggressibely adorable action-platformer from BoMToons and the cutest narrator you could ever hope for. Control a tiny hero out to take down big beasts, with upgrades aplenty, and save the kingdom from certain doom. Chibi Knight is on the short side, apart from a bit of level grinding, but its stellar vibrant presentation and unusual voice acting makes it the sort of game for which you can forgive a lot, especially given its ability to turn your frown upside down... by brute force if necessary.
