Planet M.U.L.E.

Planet M.U.L.E actually has had a long history. The original game was released back in the 1980s for the Atari 800 console. At that time, this was one of the few machines that allowed multi-player functions; featuring four ports. Today, the game has been remade with improved graphics as well as gameplay. Nevertheless, it stays true to the classics and ensures plenty of fun times ahead. The best part is that the game is offered absolutely free and works great on a Linux, Mac or Windows system. In the game, you play the role of a space traveler that's colonizing a planet. You'll need to use the planet's resources to make money and set up your colony. Certainly, a neat little game to try out.


Out of the countless iPhone games available, it's often tough to find the ones that are actually worth checking out. Well, Overkill is one game that's definitely worth downloading. Developed by seven man-developing studio, Craneball Studios, LLC; the game is fast gaining steam. In fact, as of March 20th this year, it has become one of the most downloaded free game on iTunes. Some of its biggest draw include fantastic graphics, awesome gameplay, and best of all, it's offered absolutely free. The game is perfect if you need some stress buster in between breaks or simply if you want to inject some fun and chaos into a boring afternoon.

Manos: The Hands of Fate

If you thought you've heard the title somewhere before, well, you probably have. Manos: The Hands of Fate is actually a game based on a horror film of the same title. The original movie was written, produced and directed by Harold Warren. Now, the movie didn't actually set well with most of the public. In fact, according to Wikipedia, it's considered to be one of the worst films ever. So, how does a game based on a "horrible" movie fare? Surprisingly, it's not that bad. Of course, I do have my reservations on fully recommending the game. After all, it's hard to distance yourself if you are remaking a game based on a film that's generally held as "awful" by a huge portion of the public. Nevertheless, it's quite decent and interesting to play at best. Give it a try.

Tiny and Big: Up That Mountain

Tiny and Big might still be in its Beta stages but it's already generating a fairly good buzz among many gamers. For one, the game features beautiful graphics, lovable characters and a cool gameplay; pretty much everything you could possibly want from a game! Created by Black Pants Game Studio, it became a 2011 Student Showcase Finalist. Its amazing graphics, quirky gameplay, and odd storyline add to the beauty of the game. In fact, it's hard to let this one pass by without even trying it out for yourself. The game is available for free download in various formats, including Mac, Linux and of course, Windows. Check out this game now!

Loop Raccord

Loop Raccord (or Raccord Loop) is a cool and unique game that's a current nominee for the upcoming 2011 IGF Nuovo Award. Developed according to the Experimental Gameplay Project's Neverending theme, the game showcases experimental gameplay that is interesting and captivating. The gameplay is a bit tricky to explain. Basically, you have to find the exact moment in an animated video or film and sync it with the next roll of video. Your goal is to create an infinite loop of movement by connecting every single video clip. Even though it's a bit tricky to do, there's no denying that it's a lot of fun. Created by Nicolai Troshinsky, it's one of the most original games out there. Just a word of warning though, it is a bit addictive but keep in mind that there's really no real end to the game.

Space Funeral

If you are into the weird and crazy, then you'll definitely enjoy playing Space Funeral. It's a Japanese RPG that centers on the unusual and the insane. Essentially, you play Philip and you have a sidekick named, Leghorse (don't ask why) and you set off in an adventure to find the lost City of Forms (will explain in a bit.) On your way, you encounter all sorts of monsters and creatures, from ghosts, goblins, hedonists, lions, gross out monsters and even Dracula! Filled with lots of blood and weird caves, plus a cool soundtrack that pits electronica with Japanese noise rock; this game will blow your mind away. The graphics are quite original and pretty colorful as well adding to the trippy vibe of the game. Essentially a pretty unusual but interesting piece of RPG that you can play in a little over 2 hours. Have fun and try not to crazy.

Attack of the Paper Zombies

Attack of the Paper Zombies might seem like just another zombie game (and yes, the basic premise of kill-all-zombies is there) but it features pretty unique graphics and a nice system. Developed by IndieBird (Alex Vostrov), the game is quite simple but very entertaining to play. The game is an RTS game that sees you leading a band of space marines that have to fight off hordes of space zombies. It features graphics made to look like highschool scribble on graph paper; giving off that nice old school or classroom vibe to it. Despite its simplicity, Attack of the Paper Zombies is a fun game that'll find you blasting your way through thousands of red dot zombies in space as you try and reclaim their hive.


Derek Yu does it again. Spelunky is a probably one of the rare indie games that deserve to be sold commercially rather then played for free. It's a fun, adventure game where you play well, a spelunker; exploring caves and looking for loot. Spelunky is a game that's fit for hardcore gamers and those who can catch up to the humor in Derek Yu's games. It's definitely a game worth getting yourself lost in.
