Hah, so I downloaded and beat it, very nice game, looks alot like "Phun" though. But meh, physics game will always be awesome.

Makes me wonder if anyone of you tried "Armadillo Run"

I tried Armadillo Run, and while it's very clever it kinda bored me. You'd have to be blind to miss it given the previous link, but nevertheless it's worth mentioning that Crayon Physics Deluxe is coming out sometime soon, and unlike the original prototype it doesn't turn everything into rectangles Tongue

Actually, somehow I also got it to make some weird round lines or even spheres, it was kind of hard to actually have a square at the one time and a line at the other.

And yeah, Armadillo run is mroe something to look at then to play actually.

I'd like to recommend Gate 88, a fast-paced, frenetic blend of real-time strategy and 2D space shooter...



And Lugaru, entirely unrelated to furries in any way at all (if you're worried).

Lugaru is great! I got pretty far in it, and forgot about it during a format storm. I'll have to reinstall that one, crazy fierce rabbit action, and mad goosy fun jumping all around the terrain. not a bad story that unfolds throughout the levels too.

Don't think this has been mentioned yet, but I've thought that AGD Interactive's adventure games are complete awesome:

Well.. mostly just KQII+ VGA. A really awesome remake of the game.

This game is yet another awesome indie game, with a crazy soundtrack by digital droo. I've been playing it not stop for the last few days; it's definitely worth 25 dollars.

edit: wasn't this game at GDC?

An Untitled Story was great.

Here's a few others that I also like.
Soldexus
Albero and the Great Blue Emblem
Gregg the Egg

Edit: Had to add Dim. It's been kicking my butt, but I been lovin' it. Oh, and YMM released FlaiL today. (Same link.)

Doom the Roguelike (http://doom.chaosforge.org) puts one of my favorite games into a genre that I really admire.  One of the simplest, most fun RL's out there.  And I may or may not be working on a graphical tileset for it in my limited free time (see my avatar)!

Oh my god. You've completely destroyed my free time!

The newly created TIGdb already has a lot of games on it, and it'll grow really fast.

With all these rogue-likes, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Nethack. In my opinion, it's the best rogue-like!

Why? I don't know, maybe because I haven't tried any other  Wink

http://www.nethack.org/

Oh yeah, and I suggest setting it on 32x32 tiles, I can't stand the 16x16 ones.

Edit: After posting that, I've been playing it for 5 days straight (ouch)

Hmm... Doom baddies, re-cast into a different game genre...

Kind of reminds me of BOOM!



BOOM (http://www.factor-software.com/boom.php) is essentially Bomberman meets Doom. A very fun yet frustrating game that's harder than it looks, with violently innocent graphics, which is simply great.

Edit: By the way, it's Mac only.

Would you mind saying it's for Mac only next time? :p

I was actually kind of excited seeing I always liked bomberman games, but got bored after playing the same levels and game modes over and over on my Snes GB and GBA.

Okay, time for another. This one is for practically every modern computing platform.



Battle for Wesnoth (http://www.wesnoth.org/) is an open source community game closely resembling games like Ogre Battle, Master of Monsters, or even the more popular Final Fantasy Tactics. In any case, whatever game it reminds you of, you kill your opponents through a string of scenarios, retaining your corps from each encounter (a la Myth). It's a fun game with a punishing AI that has decent graphics and is continually getting better.

Oh, and it's free.

I played Wesnoth for a while, it was kinda cool at first but for a game that size it was pretty dull... still, for a downloadable game it lasted a good month or so.

Really liked the mods though, theres so many its mind boggling... Ive tried about every single one. My favorite was Rumble.
