Falling asleep and killing myself in "Suicide Guy", some thoughts

By liamdawe, 5 September 2017 at 2:41 pm UTC (2 Comments)

spaceBOUND, the clever zero-gravity puzzle-platformer now works on Linux, it's very good

By liamdawe, 1 September 2017 at 4:25 pm UTC (0 Comments)

By liamdawe, 22 August 2017 at 12:11 pm UTC (7 Comments)

Kindergarten a very highly rated abstract puzzle adventure has made it's way onto Linux. It seems the developer isn't expecting many sales, so perhaps we can change their mind? It does look pretty good!

'HOOK' is an extremely minimalistic but addictive puzzler that I wholeheartedly recommend

By SangreDeReptil, 25 June 2017 at 9:07 pm UTC (6 Comments)
I must say that at the very beginning I thought the concept of the game was going to be extremely simple and boring, but by the tenth level it not only proved me wrong, but also I was completely hooked with it (no pun intended). There are free levels on Kongregate if you want to give them a try!
