There is so much talent in this LD it’s not even funny, and it’s sad that I won’t be able to play even a fraction of the amazing-looking games out there. Here are my lesser-known favourites after rating 100 games:

The absolute unquestionable champion:

SPACE TEST 48 – lazybraingames
SPACE TEST 48

At present, only 14 people have rated this game, and that is a crime. This game is so jaw-droppingly good at everything, from the audio and the humor to the phenomenal gameplay. It’s looks like an alien shooter, but plays like something else altogether, an amazing blend of puzzles, dodging and multitasking. Play this game.
Seriously, play this game.
Did you hear me? Just stop right now and go play this one. You don’t even need to read the rest of the list. It’s amazing. I promise.

Runner up:

*Humorous Title!* – Graf_Grun

Humorous Title

Pass through holes in the tunnel without hitting walls…and after you’re done, level different aspects of the game up or down to change the experience! Add colour! Make the geometry more difficult to perceive! Make the shapes simple or jack up the gameplay to make the corridor rotate!

Other awesome games:

SLEEP! we have a long way to go – NicoJaujou
SLEEP
This one actually made me sleepy. It has a wonderful atmosphere.

Add Removal – StuStutheBloo

Add Removal

This is a creative and tricky puzzle game, where you subtract colours from images to find secret codes.

Tokyo Minimaley Land – junt74
Tokyo Minimaley Land

A minigame collection of games themed around different Disneyland attractions, with tiny sprites of famous characters to match. This one had really tight theming and creative games, including a breakout where you control the ball instead of paddle.

I hope you give all of those a try. I haven’t seen them highlighted yet and I believe they deserve the attention.
If you’re interested, you can also check out my game, Priorities. De-clutter your life by clicking objects to free them from your mind! I wrote a postmortem here.
