Weekend Download

JohnBDemakes, you say? Retro games? We got those! Another weekend of nostalgia on this edition of Weekend Download, featuring games that both remind us of the past and games that directly copy titles from that bygone era. Point of fact: any game that simulates the original Game Boy is a winner.

supersmashland.gifSuper Smash Land (Windows, 18MB, free) - Like Super Smash Bros.? Of course you do! The complete Game Boy-style demake has finally been released, featuring Mario, Link, PIkachu and Kirby as playable characters (and Mega Man as an unlockable one!) with all the same brawl-style combat you'd expect. Each character has a stage to play, complete with demade music to fit the scene. Everything in the game has been appropriately scaled down as if it were on the original Game Boy system, cutting out a lot of content found in its big brother and simplifying the control scheme to the limited button layout. Even though it's been chopped down, Super Smash Land is still a ton of fun, especially with a friend.

shudder.gifShudder (Windows, 13MB, free) - Terror. As in, real terror, not the kind that consists of things jumping out of locked doors to strangle you. Shudder is an action game that puts you in control of a kid who loves paintball, fighting off ethereal nightmares that are slowly coming after him. To make matters worse, you're trapped in a nightmare world and are trying to find your way back. Top-down and with plenty of retro flare, this game really hits the terror sweet spot and makes you wish you were at home cuddling with a stuffed animal.

bythetorchlight.gifBy the Torchlight (Windows, 4MB, free) - Short, spooky, and in 3D! A simple game made to send a little chill down your spine, you journey into a dark cave (with yellow walls, like you do) populated by shadowy creatures that linger in the dark. Navigate the maze slowly, watching for glowing red eyes in the background, and avoid the shots fired by the sparse enemies. Your goal is to grab the orb of light and escape, but naturally, you won't be able to do that without some searching. A very basic game in most senses, but quite good nonetheless.

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!
