Weekend Download

JohnBIt's the last weekend before Christmas, so a lot of people are out shopping for presents and such. Not us. We're sitting inside playing games. All. Weekend. Long! Take that, thinly-veiled incentives to buy gifts!

gravitygarden.gifGravity Garden (Windows, 21.9MB, free) - A fully-stocked puzzle game with astronauts, flower pots, Russian scientists, and some crates. It's... Gravity Garden! Working to become the next Russian space hero and one-up the U.S. in the space race, you are put in charge of a device that can switch gravity with the touch of a button. Your goal is to move a fragile flower pot to the teleporter at the end. However, since gravity affects everything on the screen, swapping the flow can crush your plant if you're not careful. A very challenging game with 25 dastardly levels to complete, and a sense of humor any child of the internet will appreciate!

daceyinthedark.gifDacey in the Dark - Prelude (Windows, 9MB, free) - A short prelude for what is planned on being a multi-chapter tale, Dacey in the Dark is an adventure game that takes place in a stylish 2D sidescrolling world. Dacey has a fight with her father and leaves home. Going beyond the gates of her front yard won't be a simple task, as she needs a few supplies before striking out. A mysterious golden butterfly appears and seems to be guiding her somewhere. But, can you really trust it?

stargirl.gifStargirl and the Thief from the Exploded Moon (Windows, 2.7MB, free) - From the creator of A Game with a Kitty and Treasure Hunter Man comes another polished (and awesome) platform game! Some thief guy stole Stargirl's Starscooter, and not nobody is gonna stand for that! Even though she's a bit chubby (and boy does the game not let her forget), Stargirl is determined to recover her Starscooter, no matter how many platforms she has to platform upon! The game plays much like the item-lifting Super Mario Bros. 2 or Lyle in Cube Sector. Pick up blocks or enemies with [ctrl] and give them a toss. Work your way through 17 blissful levels of platforming awesomeness provided by one of the best creators of indie platformers!

Note: All games have been confirmed to run under Windows 7 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!

I can confirm that Stargirl and the Thief from the Exploded Moon works in Wine 1.3.8. (Haven't played through the whole thing, but everything seems to be working as it should through the first few levels.)


That Gravity Garden game sure is fun stuff.

Yes siree.


Is it just me or is level 23 on Gravity Garden impossible because of lag? I think I know what to do (can't see any other way), but the game lags so bad on that level that my plant seems to fall through walls. And there is no replay for this level in the walkthroughs.

So it is! I just updated the game to fix that, so hopefully that won't be a problem anymore.


Hm, I'm stuck on level 4-2 (dry passageway). I just don't see how I should get past that wall jump series with the flying thingy or how I should pass the jumps to the door after the wall jump series. Any tips?

What tetha said! Stargirl is fun, but level 4-2 seems a whole order of magnitude more difficult than anything that's come before.


Hey guys, I really wanna play Gravity Garden, but I can't open .rar files, and I don't wanna pay for a quality winRAR thing, and I don't want to get a virus ridden free one. Can someone post a download link for a self opening .zip version? or just a file with all the stuff in it? Thanks.

@Blu Use peazip, it's free, and virus free


@repairmanman Thank you very much!


Tetha - got it at last!

When you're at the top of your jump, press CTRL to throw away the dove. It will float up and land on the platform above you. You will go back down to the bottom level and can wall jump up to meet it. Stand on top of the bomb to get enough height to clear the big gap.
