Here are my favorite LD games so far. They all deserve to be played, so go ahead! :)

Twist and Weave: A fun puzzle game where you have to connect your circle with other circles and they build a chain. The catch is that the circles cannot move through walls of their color. Tricky at times, but feels always fair.

Fragments: A puzzle game where you have to build paths in order to restore the memory of the protagonist. Has a great atmosphere that adds even more depth.

Yonumbo: Yonumbo is very minimalist, all you have to do is click on the little squares with numbers in them to add to the number or subtract. The game shows you which mathematical operation you do next and all squares have to be 0 when you used up all your actions. So simple, so much fun. A very rewarding experience.

The Lion’s Song: A point and click adventure where you play as a composer sitting in a house in the mountains trying to get inspiration when suddenly the telephone rings. The game features awesome graphics with a very unique style and it’s very well written, too.

Color Worlds: A PuzzleScript game where you have to combine colored blocks to get the color black. Sounds simple, but gets very difficult quick, as you can also split the blocks up again, as you can only push blocks through walls of another color.

A Sneeze a Day: Another PuzzleScript game where you literally sneeze the boxes to their destination. It’s both hilarious and clever.

Ordinary Weekdays of Tech Support of Parallel Worlds: A cool shooter game where you have to maintain a server and protect it from virus attacks. Awesome pixel art and music!

On the Edge of Earth: I think this was my favorite of all. You’re the only one on a space station and you have to operate several machines in order to calibrate a laser beam that can create life on dead planets. Very funny and atmospheric game.

Heart Star: The most polished game I played so far. You play two cute characters living in parallel worlds and you have to switch between them in order help them both to get to the exit. Awesome graphics, sound and controls!

 

So what were your favorite games? Which one should I play? Please comment! :)

    Pilgrimage was a unique idea, and actually multiplayer… like a DayZ-Journey clone

    The Lion’s song looks awesome, I’ll have to check it out (and the rest of them!)
