    The UnderGarden

    Intentional or not the game is still relatively zen: calming, unchallenging but not particularly self-reflective. It's a strange time in the independent games market when in the last five years the approach to visual design... more

    Puddle

    Puddle is a well-made game with a lot of character and a cheeky scientific feel. Few of us will think much about the liquids we use. We fill our vehicles with oil and gas, use water to brew our tea, pour detergent into the... more

    Super Time Force

    It can be frustrating, but Super Time Force is a brilliant concept, executed well. Described by the developers as Contra meets Braid, in practice Super Time Force can also be pegged as infuriating and frustrating. That doesn't... more

    Pac-Man Championship Edition

    As an example of a perfectly pitched retro remake, Pac-Man Championship Edition is inspired. Namco's iconic yellow hero Pac-Man is probably the most recognised game character across the entire planet. He has appeared in dozens... more

    ilomilo

    At 800 Microsoft Points ilomilo is ludicrously good value for money and a charming take on the puzzle genre. Here's the story of two plush aliens lost in a three-dimensional puzzle, just trying to push blocks around. If you... more

    Quarrel

    Quarrel is wrapped up in a darling Fisher Price aesthetic and presented with wit and style. When it launched on iPhone, it seemed like Quarrel had it all. A clever concept, sharp visuals and a chucklesome sense of British... more

    The Splatters

    Just because the titular creatures aren't around to enjoy the fruits of their demise (for long, anyway) doesn't mean you shouldn't. In games, a protagonist's ability to win usually comes from staying alive to accomplish goals.... more

    Portal

    The simple ideas are often the best, and Portal is one of the best ideas for a game we've ever seen. It's fantastically realised and brilliantly executed. You wake up in a room without knowing why you're there - white walls,... more

    Braid

    Braid is a game like nothing you've ever played before and something we can't recommend highly enough. We've never played a game like this before. Braid looks like just another platformer, albeit an extremely well presented... more

    Pac-Man Championship Edition DX

    Namco Bandai has once again intelligently built upon - and suitably drop-kicked into 2010 - one of the most famous arcade games of all time. Wakka wakka wakka wakka wakka. WAKKA. Okay, I've got it out of my system: Pac-Man... more
