SpaceNET - A Space Adventure
Authentic small two-color point-and-click adventure game in retro 80s style.
This game can be a real gem for you if you value minimalism and retro atmosphere with a non-linear sci-fi adventure with less graphics and more story.

spacenet is a retro-style sci-fi point & click that gave me asteroids, elite and similar vibes, but there’s no combat, resource management (except money, see below) or anything like that here, just you in your spaceship wandering around, talking, puzzling and hacking in a non-linear fashion.

Beat the Moon levels. Got all the cheevos, and have put in a good 8 hours more or less on this game.
Pros - Simple controls, fun physics to experiment with, cool environment never got old, and platforming feels good for the most part. My favorite part is how there is more than one way to beat the level. Making for good replayibility if you want to try other methods. Plus leaderboards and cool level design makes me want to replay and look forward to the new levels.
Cons - Some challenges are a bit much, there’s a fine line between challenging and infuriating and this constantly walks it, and on certain levels, just dives head first into maddening territory. Jump pads sometimes require a bit too much precision, and I’ve spent most hours of this game being stuck on part and dying in cheap ways. There’s also a weird glitch where the soldier doesn’t get up if he smalls on a small platform, but the game is still in play and doesn’t consider it a failure.

A demonstration of how to annoy player just for the heck of it.
Lucky me gets to write the first review for CUBE-e 2, which is a 2D retro pixel puzzle platformer/shooter from known asset flippers, Piece of Voxel. This is a basic retro pixel shooter/platformer game where you guide a robot over various platforms on some planet, dodging spinning blades and shooting robots that float from the sky before they can shoot you. Ho hum.
They chose to use obsolete retro pixel “art” as a substitute for contemporary PC graphics. It’s unclear if this is due to lack of budget or talent, regardless, the overall visual quality of the game is extremely low as a result. Resolution and controls are locked. These flaws push this game far below minimum acceptable standards for PC. There’s also an insulting $10 USD price tag for this garbage. Yeah, $10, the same money that would get you one of hundreds of AAA games on sale. Or this trash.
This is a neat game! The style of the ship and the ship manual are super flavorful and I had fun messing around with it. The one problem is that it’s a bit repetitive: most of the hazards you can see are handled in very similar ways and it feels like once you’ve played it for a few hours you could start to memorize most of the steps. Definitely once your Mission Control has gotten a feel for how to navigate the manual the missions become pretty easy.
That said, the aesthetic is great and if it interests you I definitely recommend it. Just know that you won’t be getting too much playtime out of it unless you regularly invite new players to be in charge of Mission Control. I’d love to see the game expanded in some way with either dual hazards or more variation in how you solve problems, but it’s a fun package as it is and I plan to keep showing it to friends.
As someone that has played a lot of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, and ALSO someone that loves all the movies/series about various NASA space programs, this game seemed right up my alley.
So my friends and I got into character and decided that we didn’t need to preview the manual, we just jumped in. Then we died, and died, and died again. Since it’s the first day the game came out, we couldn’t even look to search engines for help guides. Eventually, though, we read the manual correctly and things improved. (And by ‘we’ I mean my friend did. I’m still very confused.) – Hint, page 57 is a good page.
The game was very exciting. I really liked the view from above. I also really liked the graphics. When playing games with a top view, you can expect the worst. So who is interested in this type of games, download and immerse yourself in the world of video games.
Space Porter is a puzzle game, simple in execution, it will not be difficult for children to play, but it trains memory well
Sentience: The Android’s Tale
I found this game to be quite interesting, though it is fairly simple mechanically speaking. The story kept me very much engaged. In a few spots my choices seemed to make a difference. With all of my other choices, it’s hard to say. The game might have some replayability, at least the last underground section, since there are so many possible endings. Recommended if you like cool stories.
By the way, the game did freeze on me a couple of times, so make sure you save often.
UPDATE July 2021: Do the following to get this game to work on Linux.
Developer Pilgrim Adventures scores positively again with this title. They have a knack for creating games that are laid back, yet very enthralling story-wise. I thoroughly enjoyed playing this.
I wished they would make more games like this one. It mixes elements of a sci-fi flavoured visual novel, with an RPG-like feel to it (mostly because of the graphics and the user interface).
The story is well done, and logical enough. There’s a healthy mix of mystery regarding technology, higher intelligent life forms, ancient civilizations, creation & just life in itself.
nice little chilled game, easily played ( and minimised when the boss walks in ) between working on spreadsheets etc. Nice simple and relaxed.
It’s a mobile game, fun but you’d need to spend some time to get to other galaxies (it’ll unlock more ships and crafts). Great if you like slow paced games.
Alpha Particle is one of the most innovative, creative games I’ve played in a while, a really fresh take on the genre. If you’re curious and up for a challenge, give it a go. Be prepared to explore and experiment. Check it out!
Like a top-down shooter but you can’t shoot so you have to get creative. A fast-paced thinking man’s game with highly polished graphics and sleek gameplay. Loads of variety. Unique, challenging, fun
