Magnificent Gunbright
Magnificent Gunbright is an abstract shooter; kind of a cross between Warning Forever and Tumiki Fighters. Your blob cloud is at once your defensive shield and your ammunition, and more blobs are always raining from the sky.
Falling from the top of the screen like rain is a steady supply of more blobs. If one of the blobs in your cloud touches a white blob that fell from the sky, even while shooting, the blob joins your cluster.
Falling from the bottom of the screen is black blobs, that your enemy can use to bulk himself up, as well. Blob rain does no damage to either party; you can tell that it's rain and not bullets because rain travels away from you.

Moagg combines several game types of other genres like races, search & rescue, seek & destroy et cetera into a 2D gravity game. You are pilot of a small space ship and have to navigate that ship through different levels. But beside the gravity that drags you down there are other obstacles like laser ports, magnets, black holes, cannons, rockets and grinders you have to master.
The "original" (which I now consider as "old") Moagg was based on C++ and SDL . Due lack of time and motivation to continue, the development ended with the 0.18 release in summer 2005. During this time I discovered the power of Java and thus started a Java-port of Moagg in the beginning of 2007.

molecule-manMolecule Man Molecule Man is a port of a 3D isometric maze game for the ZX Spectrum that was released in 1986.Molecule Man is trapped in a radioactive maze and must reach the escape teleport before the radiation kills him.nAlthough Molecule Man looks at first glance like a simple isometric maze game, it is more sophisticated than 3D Monster Maze and more similar to Spectrum classics like Knightlore. The only way you can escape from the maze is by using the teleporter, but you can only use it only after you have collected all sixteen sections of the level's circuit board. To keep the radiation dose down, you also need to periodically take anti-rad pills.

Transcend Game Transcend can best be described as retro-style, abstract, 2D shooter. The graphics are geometrical, and the pace is sometimes frenzied. Two features set Transcend apart from other games. First, its dynamic graphical engine, which can smoothly morph from one complex shape to another, produces striking displays. Combining these dynamic shapes with subtle randomizations makes each play through a Transcend level visually different from the last. The second novel feature is Transcend's musical power-up system. As you play through a level, you are simultaneously assembling an abstract visual collage and arranging a unique piece of music. Transcend merges video games with pure art---it can be viewed either as a game or as a multimedia sculpture.
