Weekend Download

JohnBIn addition to having two games starring astronauts, this little piece of Weekend Download deliciousness happens to include some games that, in our humblest of opinions, display extraordinary amounts of creativity. Prepare to be intrigued! *spooky hand gestures*

moonwalk.gifMoonwalk (Windows, 17.7MB, free) - A beautiful, imaginative game that casts you as a space adventurer lost in a field of tiny moons and planets. Circle the spheres to find a missing artifact piece, then bring it back to your ship to install it and proceed to the next level. No artifact in sight? Jump to another orbiting moon, that should help. Can't see one? Hold [tab] to zoom out, then wait for orbits to synchronize and take your leap. You can even pick up and throw certain objects, converse with a rare inhabitant or two, and deal with simple enemies. A very basic sort of game that champions creativity and exploration above all.

youledmehere.gifYou Led Me Here (Windows, 239MB, free) - A short point and click game that will remind you of all the best bits of Myst, only set in a very different sort of environment. You are in a control room filled with buttons, levers, and information screens. One monitor shows security camera feeds you can switch back and forth between. In a room, a woman sits alone, a prisoner in the dark compound. You can help her escape, though, by manipulating the buttons and changing the landscape on each of the rooms shown on the security feed. It's very much a "figure it out as you go" sort of game, but it presents its puzzles in a very intriguing manner and offers up more questions than answers, which is good!

mirrornaut.gifMirrornaut (Mac/Windows, 8.6Mb, free) - If Canabalt were slower, took place in space, and featured puzzle-like elements where you had to reverse your position and play as your mirror image, it would be (an entirely different game called) Mirrornaut. Obstacles slowly scroll your way, and you have two methods of avoiding them: jumping, and switching to the other side of the horizontal white line. Many things you can simply leap over, but others are too tall, forcing you to reverse sides. It's strangely puzzle-like trying to figure out what and how to progress. Just a few mistakes is all it takes to start the level all over again, but the progression from stage to stage is a welcome change from endless running.

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!


You Led Me Here sounds a lot like the PC game Experience 112. That was a good game.



Wow, Mirrornaut is great, but only 3 levels??!!!
Anxiously awaiting an update, I love the game mechanics! I finished level 3 one time with less than 1/2 of me on the screen!


What are the controls for Moonwalk?


You led me here
stuck in the camera room

I noticed the code number 4 1 2 5 in different rooms but ..

thank you!

PS: mouse control is very lagged


@hf: According to the official walkthrough,

There's a "3" hidden in one of the rooms. I never found it myself, and the walkthrough doesn't say where it is. The complete code is 41352.


How do you play Moonwalk offline?
