    Don't forget T.E.C 3001. Awesome, awesome game.
  • TheGooseinator - January 1, 2014 3:58 p.m.

    Damn, indie games have grown in the past few years. The titles of half of those games looked like douchebag YouTube usernames.

    No love for Beat Hazard?
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - January 1, 2014 11:47 p.m.

    I will ALWAYS have love for beat hazard. Always. Even if there's a fire.

    The Arkedo series represents the best offerings I've seen from the indie community so far. Beautiful graphics that merge old school style with next-gen flair, and impeccable game design. I've tried the trials for all three currently available and Pixel is at the top of my favorites. As for the others, Hypno Vol 1 is hands-down the most original concept I've seen in awhile. I just wish it had more sophisticated graphics. Can you imagine something like this in a GTA-style open world city? Just the thought of it makes me drool.

    I really enjoy BEAT HAZARD 400 microsoft points, its like geometry wars powered by the music on your console or networked pc.

    You guys must had missed out this recent indie title that kicked off 2010, Tobe's Vertical Adventure Read about it off some other guy's blog, Appeals to the hardcore retro-gamer in me. (grabed from the dev's blog)

    Might have to try some of these, the impossible game is sadistic by the way.
  • Spybreak8 - January 27, 2010 5:51 a.m.

    I have most of those, as in have I mean trials as well, and I love 3D Avatar Golf and CarneyVale Showtime. Amniotic is also a good game too. I refuse to dl The Impossible Game, seriously I get enough of that with Trials HD lol.
  • penguinsrule3 - January 27, 2010 5:10 a.m.

    The impossible game is ridiculously tough, fun though. The music kicks ass to.
  • CH3BURASHKA - January 27, 2010 2:55 a.m.

    You missed Soul. It's fairly new and it looks amazing: think Machinarium-esque.
  • CreeplyTuna - January 27, 2010 1:56 a.m.

    i made a game with zombies in it is really cool with a bunch of friends. my little bro bought it after a friend showed it to him and im having fun w/ it too
  • Yeager1122 - January 27, 2010 12:07 a.m.

    And yet i still dont want any of them.
  • garnsr - January 26, 2010 10:14 p.m.

    Pixel reminds me of Dreamcast VMU games, especially the treasure screen.
  • benjitenji - January 26, 2010 7:59 p.m.

    HEY, dig deep, a great game eh? well from your description, it sounds exactly like the miniclip game called motherlode, released years ago. Im not sure if you'll still count it on this list.
  • Tomsta666 - January 26, 2010 6:22 p.m.

    The Arkedo Games are pretty good. I have Jump and Pixel, quality oldskool platforming goodness. I heard that they were going to release a new game every month, I look forward to what they release next.
  • Seabread - January 26, 2010 4:43 p.m.

    excellent. only 80msp for zombies. i'm getting it. may have to purchase a few others from this list too. but what about Weapon of Choice? that's awesome.
  • charliemouse - January 26, 2010 2:49 p.m.

    Groov is my favourite, it's old now but still plays beautifully. Rez meets Geometry Wars.
