The delights of this charming action brawler created by indie developer Tomatotrap are many in number. Plasma Puncher is simple to understand and difficult to get good at, offering a fun and light-hearted experience that still contains challenge. An adorable looking game with fast flowing and smooth gameplay that makes it look and feel very much worth it’s very reasonable asking price.
The creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Torn Banner Studios have snuck out a new game with seemingly very little publicity or fanfare. Building off the same premise and combat basis as Chivalry, Mirage: Arcane Warfare offers the player a game full of colour and energy with a variety of classes and a set of fun magic abilities in a fast paced multiplayer environment.
This Early Access title is the first Commercial Indie project by the developer Matt Dabrowski. An ambitious creation that aims to essentially give the player free reign in how they can tackle any situation or mission while also providing a randomly generated set of levels upon each run through, Streets of Rogue attempts and achieves things that others possibly haven’t even thought to try.
Drift Into Eternity is a new title from Indie developer We Are Bots and has been out of Early Access for about 2 months now. You find yourself on a deserted spaceship far out in the abyss with no hope of rescue. Death is inevitable and the aim is to simply survive as long as possible via eating, drinking, repairing injuries and curing diseases and ailments. Another objective is to try and maintain the ship you find yourself in while things break and fail around you. It is a lonely and arduous experience with no promise of gratification. Certainly not for the feeble hearted.
Spectrum is a punishing title from Indie developer 3D Avenue that successfully leads the player into a false sense of security to begin with. If you’re a fan of aggressively sadistic 2D platformers such as Super Meat Boy, Electronic Super Joy, or Geometry Dash then Spectrum will be a game for you. If you’re not someone who enjoys intense pain and frustration then potentially stay away for the sake of your own health.
Alpha Decay is a recently out of Early Access title from Two Headed Monkey. It's a simple concept and holds some promise. The only current game mode consists of two teams of four people who each have a reactor to defend. This reactor decays over time and can be caused to decay faster by the opposing team. Each team has a base area where they can create buildings that will strengthen their team and upgrade their weapons. These base upgrades are made by using resources that are collected by a drone that each team has. The drone can be destroyed and although it gets replaced fairly quickly this obviously halts resource collection temporarily and each element of the base needs managing and defending to an extent.
Black Hole Hazard is a title from the almost unknown developer Superthumb, and is an interesting one that certainly shows some potential. You play as Dr. Albert, a scientist who falls foul to a science experiment gone wrong and finds himself adrift in space within a strange sequence of puzzles. You have only a jet pack and a gun to navigate your way through the puzzles and to avoid the enemies and deadly traps.

You begin with a level one ship and as you progress and kill higher leveled enemies your ship is presented with a variety of increasingly stronger ship parts to add to your build and better weapons to blast away your enemies.
