Weekend Download

JohnBThis edition of Weekend Download makes me hungry. Hungry for TOAST! It also, by extension, makes me want to ride on the back of a sheep, but that's a completely different thing, innit?

typefighter.jpgType Fighter (Mac/Win, 24MB, free) - A short anime-style fighting game created by Kevin Lee and Kyle Fujita for an intermediate game design and development course. It looks like ninjas have attacked your office building, and by typing in phrases when prompted, you can avoid their attacks as well as fight back. Charge your super meter and unleash a super attack (by typing SUPER, of course) to do some real damage. The art and sound are over-the-top dramatic, and unleashing special attacks by typing phrases like "DID YOU GET THAT THING I SENT YOU" is something I've always dreamed of. There are only two stages, so the game is rather short, but it's fun while it lasts! Note: Scroll down to the bottom of the page for download links.

detoren.gifDe Toren (Windows, 9MB, free) - From Edit Mode, the creator of the Game Boy-esque Lightmare, comes a puzzle platformer that's harder than it looks. Earn points by touching floor tiles with the ultimate goal of climbing to the top of the tower. You must earn enough points within the allotted time in order to proceed, so don't dawdle, just keep climbing!

toastboy.gifToast Boy (Windows, 1.5MB, free) - TOAST BOY! Toast Boy is tiny and his world is blocky and filled with solid colors. Toast Boy can fly using his jetpack. Toast Boy picks up a gun and can shoot enemies with this gun. Toast Boy is very fast-paced, hectic, even, and things move so quickly you won't even have time to wonder why Toast Boy has legs. Toast doesn't have legs in real life, does it?

sheep2.gifSheep! (Windows, 1.5MB, free) - A simple, short, cute and free solitaire-type game from Alexander Shen. Sheep cards appear at the top of the screen, each stack with a number and points value below. Simply place fence cards on the piles and try to eliminate all of the sheep in a stack. Fence in all the sheep before you run out of fence cards, and get bonus points for matching the face numbers on-the-dot.

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

Toast Boy is ace! Does it have sound (my computer might just be playing up)?

It has a really lovely loopy mentality and the characters are so simple they're lovely. Reminds me of 10800 Zombies.

Well done Rokan!

Type Fighter is the greatest thing to happen to me so far today. I'm a fan of anything ninja-related as it is, but throwing them into an office and bestowing them with powerful attacks based on a few words makes this game that much more awesome. My favorite super attack was "the beatings will continue until morale improves." I also loved the Japanese thrown in there. Kudos to Kevin Lee and Kyle Fujita for this fun little distraction!

Type Fighter looks like a fun game. Unfortunately, I can't really tell, because the game registers letters on a US QWERTY-style keyboard only, no matter what your actual keyboard layout is. Took me a while, too, to figure out why I failed even the simplest of sentences on my German QWERTZ. The ability to handle different keyboard layouts is quite a silly thing to overlook in a typing game...

To everyone who enjoyed Toast Boy - I'm really grateful - I looked at the websites stats and got absolutely blown away by the amount of downloads and page views.

And no, there isn't any sound - sorry!

Thank you for hosting the game on your website!

Be sure to check up on the website more often for new games, such as Lizzi: Act One which is being released soon, and a new SHMUP being released VERY soon - Fallow Sense.

Is Typing of the Dead anything like Type Fighter? If so, I may need to play it. :D
