NECTARIS

Hudson’s Nectaris is one of the greatest military strategy games ever made. It combines simplicity with complexity in ways other games have rarely equalled. There are only twenty three units, but combined with new and refined strategic elements the game allows for surprisingly deep gameplay.

This game was first released on the PC Engine where it sold over two hundred thousand units, and has seen ports to the Playstation, GameBoy, X68000, PC-8801, Japanese cellular phones, and Windows ’95. The original game was so complete only two sequels have been released. Hudson released Neo Nectaris for the PC Engine SuperCD, featuring a handful of new units and a tweaked interface, and a German company released Nectaris for MS-DOS in 1995, which features many new units and two new planets to fight on. A remake was in development by the same German company. Called Nectaris 2000, it was never completed. The Windows ’95 game, which runs fine on Win98 and XP, was released as freeware by Hudson. You can download it right here.

Don’t look back

dontlookback

Don’t look back is a free browser based (With download option) platformer from Kongregate games, based loosely on the myth of Orpheus who descended into hades to recover the soul of his deceased wife, however she would return with him as long as he didn’t look back, and if he did this she would fade away.

This is a mercifully short but fiendishly difficult game, you’ll die multiple times per screen as the old style unmerciful traps get you in the back when you least expect it, but with a bit of planning and twitch reflexes you’ll triumph in the end. Conquering hades is all in a day’s work.

Play don’t look back now

The manipulator

You are a psychic freak in a world that doesn’t like you very much! You must use your powers to escape from a military base patrolled by heavily armed guards. You can control their minds or, if you’re feeling nasty, cause their heads to pop.

In a nutshell that’s the theme and plot of this simple platformer game with a twist from Virtanen games

The graphics are extremely simple, but it’s a fun game with unexpected depth (For example, after the first few levels you can read the guard’s minds and discover their personal secrets)
