Weekend Download

JohnBA little bit of looting, a little bit of inverting, and a whole lot of shooting in this edition of Weekend Download. In fact, if you tried to take Weekend Download through an airport security gate, you'd probably find yourself on the receiving end of some nasty stares and/or unusual search techniques.

dungeonchaos.gifDungeon Chaos (Windows, 16MB, free) - No one will ever fault a game developer for intelligently combining action and RPG elements. Especially not when it's an arcade shooter as awesome Dungeon Chaos. Lots of weapons to equip and cause destruction with, along with upgrades, hit points, levels to gain, and food recipes to keep you demanding more. It's pretty much exactly what you would imagine if you put an RPG and a shooter into a blender. Also, the secret best part? Dungeon Chaos supports local two player co-op!

invert.gifInvert (Windows, 6MB, free/pay what you want) - A classic platform game built around a simple inversion mechanic. Pressing the [c] key inverts the colors, turning solid blocks into background elements and vice versa. Using this and a few simple jumps, you must collect the keys in each level in order to unlock the exit. Basic in a lot of ways, but well-executed and good fun to play thanks to its balanced difficulty level. Note: You can download Invert for free or download with a small donation. It's your choice.

hackslashloot.gifHack, Slash, Loot (Mac/Win/Linux, 6MB, demo) - Time to get your roguelike on! A casual, mouse-driven dungeon crawling RPG is a dream for many players, and Hack, Slash, Loot aims to make that a reality. It's got a sweet visual style that's very retro without jumping into ASCII territory, and it's nice and streamlined in terms of quests and goals. Very accessible for new players and anyone not interested in memorizing keyboard commands.

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!


Hey JohnB, quick request: when the Weekend Download games include ones that run on Mac and Linux (like this week or last week's bunch), could you put that in the tag? I usually skip over it when the tag says "Windows".

[I usually do, but I missed it this week! Sorry about that! - JB]


Invert was a fun but short game. I look forward to future levels and more challenges.
