Weekend Download

JohnBCUUUUTE games this week. So unabashedly cute. Sugar cubes and tiny block guys. Squeaking mushrooms and elevators that play elevator music. Ohhhh, I'm gonna burst with sugary sweetness.

sugarcube.jpgSugar Cube (Windows, 22.7MB, free) - A sugar cube doesn't want to end up in a cookie, so he runs off in search of freedom! As you move through the colorful areas in this platformer, individual background tiles rotate when you pass in front of them. Depending on which side is showing, different platforms, objects, enemies, etc. will be present. Holding [shift] keeps things as they are, but sometimes you'll want to shuffle things up in order to progress. It's an interesting concept pulled off with that sugary-cute sweetness cleverly alluded to above. Love the cutscenes, too!

alexadventure.gifAlex Adventure (Windows, 8MB, free) - A tiny, overlooked platform adventure game focused on exploration, puzzle solving, and a little bit of combat. Use the [c] key to fire your gun and interact with things in the environment, such as using keys to unlock gates. Pick your way across the varied landscape and see what you can uncover. The world design will remind you a lot of Knytt, as it's quite open and almost every path you take leads somewhere new.

mrblocko.gifMr. Blocko: Super Tournament Edition (Windows, 2MB, free) - Puzzle games are all over the place, especially of the Tetris variety. Swivel the block here, drop it there, make a line, repeat. In Mr. Blocko, however, you don't control the blocks. You control the little guy running around in the pit. Shove blocks left and right to turn them into your color. Make a line, get points. The single player mode gets old pretty fast, but the game supports up to four simultaneous players on one computer, and that's where things get really, really interesting. The ability to swap skins and game modes is also a huge plus!

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!

Hey, I've loved 4-player, one computer games like Mr. Blocko and Dungeons of Fayte. Can anyone recommend any other good (and preferably free) offline multi-player games?

@ jnighlight:
Have you tried Uberleben? It's pretty amusing for multi-player.

Why are there so few comments? Alex adventure is an awesome game, although it could have had a better ending!

Boss fight was totally unexpected but cool, even if dead easy

As I am dipping in an out of Alex, is there a way to save?
Otherwise I have to start again each time ice cold (sorry - couldn't resist it).

Boo.
