'6180 the moon' is a platformer game with a unique system. It offers a fresh, different game play style by connecting the top and bottom of the game screen.

This game was co-created by South Korea's Indie Game Studios, Turtle Cream and PokPoong Games. Link to PokPoong Games: http://pok-poong.blogspot.com

7 Grand Steps (Mousechief Co. )

There is a wonderful tale within you. It is the story of your ancestors and how you came to be. Tales of love, striving, family struggles, excellence, tragedy. Then there are the great legends: rags to riches, world-changing discoveries, and heroic adventure. Some may even be true.

'7 Grand Steps' is the game that connects people to the cultural roots of western civilization. From the sweat of laborers to the perspective of kings, experience the wonder of a family lineage that survived the changing ages. Or did they survive? How you guide them will determine their fate.

Like life, gameplay is a constantly shifting puzzle. Try to get the most for spending resources in the best way and in the best order. Every turn, the optimal tactic will change. Some turns will be joyful, perfectly played. In some you'll see a more optimal play, too late.

The basics are simple: spend resources to advance, but the price of resources is retreat. Think two steps forward, one step back. Behind awaits th...

A game for two players and one keyboard.

(Or two players and one mobile device.)

A Clockwork Brain (Total Eclipse )

A Million Minions (Naked Sky Entertainment )

A Million Minions is a humorous, cartoony action game that pits you - a castle in idyllic Youville - against an endless horde of cute and squishy minions. It all starts when three big, bad brothers steal your kingdom's candy scepter for nefarious purposes. You must retrieve it, else it may never rain candy again!

A Million Minions is designed for use with Intel's Perceptual Computing (motion control) cameras. You can smash and pound by performing gestures mid-air, just like all those futuristic books and shows promised. That said, until we figure out a good way to get cameras to judges, the game is also playable with a conventional PC mouse.

A Slower Speed of Light (MIT Game Lab )


A Slower Speed of Light is a first-person game in which players navigate a 3D space while picking up orbs that reduce the speed of light in increments. A custom-built, open-source relativistic graphics engine allows the speed of light in the game to approach the player's own maximum walking speed. Visual effects of special relativity gradually become apparent to the player, increasing the challenge of gameplay. These effects, rendered in realtime to vertex accuracy, include the Doppler effect (red- and blue-shifting of visible light, and the shifting of infrared and ultraviolet light into the visible spectrum); the searchlight effect (increased brightness in the direction of travel); time dilation (differences in the perceived passage of time from the player and the outside world); Lorentz transformation (warping of space at near-light speeds); and the runtime effect (the ability to see objects as they were in the past, due to the travel time of light). Players can choose to share the...

A Virus Named TOM (Misfits Attic )

A perfect place. A city without traffic. A dog that doesn't poop. All products of the brilliant mind of Dr. X, but hell hath no fury like a mad scientist fired by a giant corporation. In this unique action-puzzler you take control of TOM, a virus created for one purpose: revenge.

Hack your way through brain scrambling puzzles while maneuvering through a thumb cramping maze of enemies. Team up through over 50 cooperative levels in what MMGN is calling "The most addictive co-op game we've played since Portal 2." And if the over 100 levels aren't enough, you and your friends can destroy each other again and again in battle mode to determine just who is the supreme virus.

About Love, Hate and the other ones (Tobias Bilgeri, Stephan Göbel, Simon-Lennert Raesch )

"About Love, Hate and the other ones" is a cute puzzle game in which you take control of the two main characters Love and Hate. Guide them through 60 levels to take them back home to their beloved hill. You will encounter different other ones with unique behaviours, depending on whether Love or Hate interacts with them. Created by Black Pants in coproduction with brush&bear. The game has already received an honorable mention at the IGF back when it was a flash game prototype. It won the German Computer Games Award in the newcomer category with an early beta version of what is now available at the Apple App Store.

Adventure Apes and the Mayan Mystery (ScaryPotato )

Horatio Hawk has stolen a priceless artifact from a Mayan temple, and it is up to you to stop that dirty bird before he can escape! You'll have to explore every nook and cranny for weapons, abilities and extra lives if you are to have any hope of success...each level is full of dangerous critters (not to mention brutish bosses!), all with an appetite for monkey blood!

The Mayan Mystery is heavily inspired by my favourite game as a kid: Metroid. The challenge is high, the pixels are unapologetic, and it's my hope that if you were glued to your tv trying to find your way through the labyrinthine caverns of Zebes, the experience of navigating the crumbling Mayan hallways will ignite your sense of nostalgia.

To help this sense of nostalgia, I've also created an instruction manual for the game with drawings of all the enemies and bosses, along with secret information to help guide you on your quest! :)

Against the Wall (Michael P. Consoli )

Against the Wall is a first-person puzzle-platformer set on the side of an infinite wall. Entire civilizations and ecosystems cling for survival on the side of the wall, everyone and everything existing under the constant threat of tumbling into an endless sky. The wall is made up of square white bricks of varying sizes. You can pull these bricks out of the wall to form platforms, stairs, and paths. Along the way, you'll encounter cities, forests, volcanoes, castles, and other environments in your journey through this strange world.

Air Jump (Avallon Alliance )

From the synergy between good old Platformers and RPG is born the ultimate, new, true iPhone game? Air Jump!

With a completely new game experience, especially with the accelerometer and touch, you can take a dangerous journey through a jungle, to your destiny. What danger could be lurking under the next platform? What creature could come up behind you?

Protect yourself with hard armor, buy powerful blades and strong charms, sell hard-earned trophies to merchants, and discover new lands, new enemies, and, sometimes, new friends.

Have your destiny at your own fingertips!

AirBuccaneers (LudoCraft )

AirBuccaneers is a multiplayer airship pirate game with shamanistic Buccaneers and infamous Vikings fighting over domination of the North. This cooperative 1st person game requires seamless teamwork and strategic battle skills.

Alcarys Complex (Modest Arcade )

THIS WORLD CANNOT BE SAVED.

Welcome to Elcaea, the world of the wicked.

In the place of heroes and villains are people - for the most part - doing what they can to take back their lives from those who would seek to control them for pleasure and profit.

Visit a dark world rotten with corruption in this story-driven 2D action RPG, gain experience by story progression and interaction with the citizens of Elcaea, rather than random acts of violence, and, most of all, do what it takes to survive in a world that would rather see you dead than free.

Alien Jelly (Roger Miller )

Alien Jelly is a 2X Microsoft Dream Build Play finalist and has earned a honorable mention for production quality in 2011. It is now live on XBox Live Indi Games. Alien Jelly is a 3D puzzle game. 3D in all senses of the word. Not only does it sport beautiful 3D HD graphics with loads of custom shaders, the puzzle metrics are all three dimensional. Rotate the world to get your stranded Alien Jellies to the rescue ship so they can get back to lunch. Push crates, rotate the world, evade and destroy robots, dodge huge spiky things and generally figure out how to get home. Once you are done playing the bring twisting 40 levels, you can try your hand at making them too! Try the easy to use Alien Jelly Build-O-Matic? to make any level you have seen in the game in more. All 40 levels for the game were made and polished in the Build-O-Matic?. Once you think you have a cracker of a level, share it with your XBox Live Arcade friends and see if they can decipher your mind bender. Got some friends ...

Alien X Zombie Last Escape (InterSET Research & Solution (Redboot Team) )

Alien x Zombie is a game about war and surviving, with vibrance and fun. Ways to approach to targets are based on a basic concept of Physics, and follow unfamiliar rules. Obstacles are also a matter of perception.

You as an Alien journey through the different worlds, get rid of Zombies, manipulate proper weapons, and find new ways to get the best solution for different surroundings in this puzzling action game!

Alone in the Park (Katharine Neil )

Alone in the Park is an adventure game in which the events are conveyed via a textual narration instead of animations. So it's very much like a text adventure, but the player interacts with the game via a graphical interface, negotiating a map and static scenes.

The game world is inspired by the surreal yet prosaic world of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, in the way it satirises everyday contemporary archetypes as well as the very idea of fantasy and adventure itself.

Alpha Zero (Funkoi )

Alpha Zero is our take on the classic 2.5D scrolling shoot 'em up. The game has unique controls, beautiful graphics, and awesome boss-fights.

Forget about on-screen joysticks, this is a game made for touch input and should redefine some of your assumptions of hard core gaming on a mobile device.

Features
True multi-touch gameplay
Ten unique bosses and tons of other enemies
Upgradable ship (weapons, armor, shields and more)
Full epic soundtrack
Three challenging difficulty levels (cadet, ace and elite)
Campaign story-line, telling the tale of humanity's last journey
