The following message was stolen from artbegotti: This episode of Weekend Download has been brought to you by Triangles. Triangles are three-sided shapes that have three corners with internal angles that add up to 180 degrees. Triangles come in several varieties, including right triangles, equilateral triangles, isosceles triangles, obtuse triangles, and more! Triangles are also well known for their structural stability in architectural design. So go out and try some triangles today! "Triangles... We're Not Square!"
Tile World (Mac/Windows/Linux, ~1MB, free) - Created to emulate the gameplay of the classic Chip's Challenge, Tile World is a simple top-down puzzle game where you collect keys to open doors and gather computer chips to unlock the exit portal. Special boots allow you to walk across water, fire, ice and moving platforms unaffected. Surpisingly deep gameplay and plenty of levels to challenge you make this one a winner.
Red Spheres (Windows, 1.7MB, free) - A simple puzzle game where the goal is to turn all of the black spheres red. Clicking on an orb will toggle itself and adjacent spheres, so work yourself out of the corners and plan your moves carefully. A very elegant and stylish game.
Pirate Fishing (Windows, 4.8MB, free) - An experimental game by Petri Purho (Kloonigames) made in five days. Pirate Fishing is a simple arcade game where you play a pirate trying to catch fish for profit. But why use a pole and hook when you can just dump oil in the water? It's sad, but effective, and the more fish you poison the more cash you rake in. Love the Star Trek background music!
Run for It 2 (Windows, 2.6MB, free) - A vector-based racing game where you control a runner in the foreground who must collect gems while dodging spikes and flying baddies as he traverses the twisty passageways. The quasi-3D style is great, reminds me of arcade games in the days of old. Simple gameplay and a catchy musical score will keep you hooked.
