This week's Link Dump Friday theme; fear! Or more specifically, a healthy fear of things that want to do terrible things to the moist, quivering, tender meatbag you call a body. All the games herein contain all manner of beasties and terrible fates just waiting to befall you. It's like I always say; there's nothing better to start your weekend off right than a comforting sense of your own fragile mortality. Hooray!
- Revert to Growth 2 - This robot is trying to trick you. It wants you to think it has no interest in assimilating you or hunting you for sport. All it wants (it claims) is to use a variety of plant-based powers to solve a series of increasingly elaborate platform puzzles. This robot is lying. The second you turn your back on it, you'll be taking a dirt-nap and find yourself re-purposed into a lovely posy garden bed. Stone cold, man.
- Hurry Up Bob 2 - Chances are if you've seen an Indiana Jones film that didn't involve Shia LeBeouf you were struck by how rad being an explorer might be. But before you strap on your hat and your whip and your dubiously qualified but easy-on-the-eyes personal assistant, you might want to try this fast-paced arcade platformer to clue you in to the very real dangers actual explorers and archaeologists face every day. Like mummies. And robots. And acid. And spike traps. And jet-packs. And magical crumbling blocks. And...
- Awesome Ghosts vs Stupid Zombies - The zombies need more corpses for their upcoming undead apocalypse, but the ghosts aren't having any of it, since those are their bodies, even if they have been dead and buried for years. Okay, to be honest, the undead monsters in this turn-based strategy game are more interested in wiping out each other than they are you. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't still be on your guard! CONSTANT VIGILANCE as my favourite professor used to say.
- Pixel Wizards - An entire generation of kids has grown up desperate to be wizards and/or whisked off to a glorious magic academy where they'll have amazing adventures, dreamy, broody teachers and dubious adult supervision. However, with great power comes a great amount of people trying to blast you the heck up as you'll discover in this strange arcade shooter.
- Alienocalypse - You should already know by now that ET was a lie and aliens only love you for your big, round head; the perfect size and shape to crack open and lay their glistening eggs inside. You'll be playing for their team in this real-time strategy game, however, as you man an alien invasion of planet Earth and send hordes of horrifying beasties to do your dirty work.
