Although all the games mentioned above are definitely worthy of a play, our five favorite free games released this week are listed below… enjoy!
- Dead Metal - Dead Metal is a point and click space battleship top down shooter featuring a very cool soundtrack. In the game you are involved in a space war and must fight your enemy whilst dodging their missiles. The game features more than 30 different enemies so there is plenty to blow up and destroy with your amplitude of different weapons. There are five missions for you to complete, with the final mission being a survival mission where you must see how long you can last with loads of enemy ships coming down on you.
- Gluey 2 - Gluey 2, the sequel to Gluey, is a colorful, cheerful and strangely addicting physics puzzle game. In the game you must group and remove glue blobs of the same color to get them to disappear before your screen fills up. There is something mesmerizing about the gloopy blobs being squirted onto the screen and the squelchy sound effects are awesome. Once you start eliminating the glue, you probably won’t be able to stop!
- Saving the Company - Saving the Company is platform puzzle adventure game where you must save your company from going under by retrieving treasure from a trap infested, puzzle filled dungeon. Surely this would earn the title of employee of the month? Although Saving the Company is a rather short game that will probably only take you about 10 minutes to complete, it is well worth a play!
- Line of Fire - Line of Fire is a side scrolling jet aircraft shooter game with hordes of enemies to destroy. The game is hand - drawn on a lined paper background, is brilliantly animated and has a full voice over. In the game you are a cute little paper airplane on a mission to annihilate everything in your path. The game starts of easy but becomes insanely difficult very quickly.
- Spectromancer: Gamer Pack - This is an improved version of Spectromancer: Truth & Beauty. Spectromancer is a fantasy card strategy game where you engage in magical duels with other Mages by summoning mystical creatures and casting spells. There are five elements to a duel - Earth, Fire, Water and Air as well as a fifth element that is dependent upon the type of duel. Once you have defeated all of the other Mages you become the Spectromancer!
