Post Free Game of the Week - Akuji

Er, I'm not sure why I stopped doing these. I think I just forgot. Or something.

Post Free Game of the Week - Focus

This time it\'s another proper boardgame, to the extent that it\'s playable by two players on an equal basis and has, like, tiles moving about on a board.

It\'s also very difficult. On the default...

Continuing last Week\'s theme of, er, slighty boardgame-like puzzle games, here\'s a previously suggested classic based on the Minotaur Puzzle Game posted in the forums a while ago. It\'s also one of...

Post Free Game of the Week - Cameleon 98

I have this notion that I might make January an unconventional board games theme month. We\'ll see.

Just to prove that sites made by ad-men can sometimes be fun, this is quite a fun archery game that was/is a web extra for the rather nondescript game Stronghold. Shoot increasingly small targets,...

D\'oh, I almost forgot.

GeneRally may be a relatively conventional top-down racing game, with no more than decent mechanics and single-screen levels, but it has two factors that make it stand out....

Post Free Game of the Week - Laxius Power

This game is the first credible attempt I\'ve seen at recreating the fun of a SNESsy Square-style RPG on the PC. Yes, it\'s a freeware game with low production values, variably stolen and/or awful...

Free Game of the Week - Death Star Battles

Yes, I know, I know, it's another clone of a classic game. I just thought the original was obscure enough and the remake brilliant enough to warrant it.

I really shouldn't be recommending a game that was on Blue's News just a couple of months ago, but this a little classic in its own right.
