DEVIL’S TUNING FORK
What if you saw the world with your ears? Devil’s Tuning Fork is a first-person exploration/puzzle game in which the player must navigate an unknown world using visual sound waves. Inspired by M.C. Escher’s classic optical illusion and the echolocation of dolphins, The Devil’s Tuning Fork allows the player to explore a new mode of perception through sound visualization.
As a mysterious epidemic causes children everywhere to fall into comas, one child wakes up in an alternate reality. It is up to this child, the player, to determine the cause of the epidemic and save the other children trapped here. By way of the devil’s tuning fork, a magical instrument that allows the player to perceive sound waves, the player must find all the children and successfully escape this alternate reality, thereby waking up from the coma.
Devil’s Tuning Fork was created over 6 months by a group of DePaul Students for the Independent Games Festival, in which it won the student showcase award. A full playthrough takes less than an hour, which feels just about right as your eyes might melt if exposed to its visuals for too long. It’s an unsettling, disorientating, beautiful first-person puzzle/platforming masterpiece. Highly recommended.

SPEED CAT: SPECTRUM
Speed Cat: Spectrum is a fairly simple but addictive infinite runner where you charge headlong into the screen, picking up coins and power-ups and avoiding obstacles. The whole experience is enhanced by the distinctive visual style, awesome retro soundtrack and your pulsing multi-coloured cat (everything is better with cats).
It’s a truly bizarre but addictive and enjoyable experience, that feels like Temple Run on Rainbow Road, with a dash of LSD and Cats!

HE-MAN – THE GAME
By the power of Grayskull, He-Man is back, with a bunch of friends and ready to kick Skeletors boney ass! (Spotted by Kotaku) This fan made game is an excellent 4 player co-op side-scrolling beat-em up featuring all your favorite characters (and Orko) from the classic He-Man cartoons. The game is still in development, but the dev has released a great 9 level demo, featuring 1 boss battle. Playable charcacters include He-Man, Orko, Sorceress, Man at Arms and She-Ra. It’s great nostalgic fun, perfectly recreating the feeling of playing a classic arcade brawler and bringing the classic he-man characters to life (then beating them to a pulp)

SUPER MARIO ECLIPSE
Super Mario Eclipse is a great fan made Mario game that doesn’t just re-iterate ideas from previous Mario games, it actually builds on them and throws in some great additions of it’s own. Marios’ movement and controls are spot on (like a mix of SMB2 and SMB3), combined with the nicely realized retro graphics, the game feels like just like a Mario game should.
There are a few interesting additions and tweaks to the normal Mario formula, such as the trippy visual filter, side quests and some new puzzle elements. The best additions are the new mario suits though, such as the Chuck (American Football) suit and the Yoshi Suit.

Donkey-Me is a cool little retro game that sees the Original Donkey Kong game re-skinned with wonderful pixel art style representations of classic movies. These movies include Star Wars (above), Alien (above), Gremlins, Indiana Jones, The Exorcist, Rambo (first Blood), and several others, all brought to life in glorious 8-bit form. The soundtrack is also excellent, with 8-bit chip-tune versions of all the movie scores, all instantly recognisable and sounding great. The mixture of retro gameplay, graphics, music and classic movies all add to the nostalgic charm of the game, making it a must have for all retro game fans. Did we mention it also has a Flash Gordon Skin? Get it now! :)

Game of thrones: The 8-bit Game
