Just One BossArceusStep right up, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! You're on a small 5x8 platform and a magical mirror has appeared, beckoning you to battle. Your opponent fancies himself as a magician, no wait, the ringmaster of the show. He's got all sorts of tricks up his sleeve as well - he can make flowers spring up on random tiles. Remember that saying about every rose having a thorn? There are going to be plenty in your side if you don't manage to dodge the spots. Next, pick a card, any card-ouch! Don't let their sharp corners stab you and deplete your health. Finally, he'll flip coins down onto your arena, limiting your already cramped space further.

Pillow of StoneArceusYou wake up the same way as you have for as many days as you can remember: behind bars, locked away from your family. It's just another day, and it is time for you to rise and shine. There's work to be done, even as you trudge through the slow, somber melancholy of prison life. One day, though, you have a sudden urge to do something different. It seems innocent enough: you want to give a teddy bear to your daughter. There's only one small thing you must do to get there: break out of prison first!

Weekday EscapeThe first spring full moon is behind us, so is Easter. Now back to normal, new Weekday Escape is here!

It's too early for strawberries (greenhouse-grown don't count), but both Maymay and Amajeto delivered games about them - maybe because they are red and fotogenic - and it sounds much better to tell 'find strawberries' than 'find cucumbers'!

With Neat Escape you get to a popular restaurant, but you are left on your own - how will you cope? Can you escape it, and if yes, with full or empty stomach? The last, and the only Easter game by Esklavos is a bit surreal and so cute!

Have a good time and enjoy!

Sango  - Tales from the Coral CaveArceusA few months back in the good old days of 2017, I reviewed Yûrei Station, with not only its unique take on the style of narrative driven by beautiful hand-painted scenery, but also as a project accomplished with the help of brilliant young artists. Today it is a pleasure to share another installment in the same spirit of collaboration between adult coders and budding artists. But don't think Atelier Sentô simply rehashed things - this time, you'll explore a pair of adventures in the Coral Cove, and find that although the story is completely new and fresh, the tale is no less magical. A boy lays lazily in the sand next to a cat, with a set of colored pencils, a book, and an unbounded imagination. When you click on it, though, he'll eagerly sit up and show you the world he has created through pictures.

SinkrIanNow and then a puzzle game emerges that feels like a breath of fresh air. In the case of Sinkr, a 2D puzzle game by Wahler Digital, this is achieved largely through the minimalist design of the game's visuals and the originality of its mechanics. The game starts you off with a deceivingly simple task: guide the pucks home to their circular zones. To do this, you are given an array of hooks that you pull along in a set direction by winding a winch-like hexagon. Simply click and hold the hexagon to set the hooks in motion, using the grid in the background as a positioning guide if needed. The introductory levels are a breeze but things quickly become a bit more thought-intensive as new mechanics are added and combined in interesting ways.

Fragments of EuclidArceusPerhaps the word "mind-bending" is bandied about a bit too much when it comes to puzzle games. Nevertheless, I have the feeling that Nusan's Fragments of Euclid might be as worthy of the accolade as any other contender.

If you're not familiar with Euclid, he was a Greek mathematician known for being the founder of geometry. And boy, there is quite a bit of it in this twisted world of staircases and all sorts of geometric patterns that fold back on themselves. The game starts you off in a simple tutorial to introduce you to the machinations of this new geometric world. Despite there being little color and mostly shades of gray other than the occasional blue object that you can maneuver, the world is anything but dull.

Temple EscapePoofyMade for the Movie Game Jam 2018, Temple Escape is an action platformer based upon Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. You're an adventurer that resembles Indy, but lacking the whip, and you have to collect treasures in the form of coins and gems, dodge enemies and find your way to the end of each level. The overal quality reminds me a lot of some old DOS games like Dangerous Dave, where you basically have to do the same thing, collect treasures and reach the end of the level.

Weekday EscapeWishing you sunny Wednesday, the new Weekday Escape is here!


Flatsan wants us to play a game with one scene only, and in addition, completely grey scene - that doesn't sound very promising, right? Don't let this description discourage you, it's a good game and fun! Escape Game Club's game isn't simple escape game - it is in fact - but technically it's a challenge! Blue-haired Mono-chan has prepared this room by herself and the rules are simple - if you aren't able to escape - you lose. If you escape successfully, Mono-chan would be very frustrated! Her revenge would be another and better escape game...good, I hope you get out of there! Funkyland is still absorbed in beauty business and so they lock you in a nail salon.

Have a good time and enjoy!

PictopixArceusIf you're into both puzzle games and mathematics, Pictopix might just be the match made in heaven for you. The premise is simple: start with a grid of a given size, and fill in the tiles according to simple rules. Numbers next to each row and column indicate how many blocks of that row must be filled in, and if there are breaks between streaks of these rows. Each of these puzzles has exactly one solution, and can be determined purely by logic. Once you fill out everything - assuming you've not made any mistakes, which can happen if your powers of deduction slip - it'll complete into a picture as a little bonus. Will you make a tire, a swan, something else? Play Pictopix and watch the puzzles take shape before your eyes!

The World Begins with YouArceusYou come to your senses in some sort of ancient temple, shortly after being told you've been asleep too long and you need to wake up and leave the place (a bit cliché, I know, but stick with me here!). Ruins surround you, and you don't quite remember where you are or what you're doing here. You are a small, humanoid type creature with a small light near your head - at least, it appears to be your head - as what will sometimes be the only light to guide your way. There don't seem to be others around, so you may well be taking your journey in solitude. There are scratchings in a form resembling hieroglyphics around you that you can seem to make sense of. Will they guide you on a path to enlightenment or just lead you on a wild goose chase?

Mimi's Delivery DashPoofyMimi's Delivery Dash is the winner of this years Movie Game Jam! And how can it not be? It's based upon the anime Kiki's Delivery Service and the premise of the game is to collect orders and deliver them to people, using your broom. Yes, you've read that right, you're a little delivery witch and you have to fly up to people waving at you, grab their item, and fly to another person that wants that item. That way you will earn money (and if you're fast enough a bonus) which is your score. Oh, and you only have 3 minutes to get the highest score you can.

CHUCHELLong time ago we met little black dwarf with red pointy cap in charming little adventure Shy Dwarf (Plachý trpaslík) by Jaromír Plachý. Nine years later the same designer introduces another black creature in pointy cap, but fluffier and definitely not shy! His name is Chuchel, has a big mouth and isn't afraid to use it - it's yelling and singing, jumping and running around and making faces like slapstick entertainer - and slapstick film is the genre which the game resembles a lot, it's crazy and funny comedy composed of sketches.

Amanita Design's CHUCHEL is not one big adventure like Machinarium, the storyline is very simple. Chuchel loves cherries, d̶e̶u̶s̶ manus ex machina tears his cherry from his mouth and frustrated Chuchel is trying to get it again and again...and repeatedly loses it, being followed or outrun by Kekel, who apparently loves cherries too and in their Tom and Jerry-like relationship is the smaller (and sneakier) one.
