A top-down shooter game which uses music to generate levels.

Absolutely fantastic! HOWEVER progress is not auto-saved! Who the fuck makes a game where you can abandon everything you've played just by pressing a button too many times?!

I'm not sure how to describe this game. It's an oldschool oldschool point-and-click game.

I think I would have liked this back in the day, but these days I find a bunch of the mechanics and gameplay too frustrating to deal with.

Open-world exploration.

It's like an even crappier-graphics Minecraft, only with nothing to do. At first I thought it was quirky and interesting, but for some reason I got lifted in the air and after a long, long, while the game ended. I redid things, and this happened the second time too.

A top-down action fighting semi-roleplaying game.

I played quite a bit of it until early 2015. Spiral Knights is an exceptional game, but unfortunately as of the last time I played it, it lacks balance and so it lacks variety.

This is an exception to Java sucks, therefore everything made with Java sucks.

Build and fight with robot vehicles.

I played a bit of it, and it was interesting but didn't really do it for me.

They won't stop spamming me. Their mailing list unsubscription doesn't work for me.

A tower defence game with space ships.

I didn't play a whole lot of this, because the novelty wore off with the first one. However, it looks like this is more of the same: Highly customizable and extremely fun, but with poor replayability. Worth a bit of coin if you're a fan of tower defence games.

I was able to utterly blow away the first two practice missions. It does look like it gets a lot harder. I think maybe this isn't really for me right now or perhaps isn't my thing any more. I think I would like this game a moderate amount if I spent more time with it.

Playing a few hours in, the UI is really annoying. That alone makes this game extraordinarily hard. I hate having to fight the game itself to figure all my shit out. I'm giving this a pass.

Like its predecessor, bonus points for the author throwing away all sense of storyline. Fuck all that shit, I just want gameplay. I'm not joking.

A roguelike game with a tactical side to it.

I like it, but only played a little of it as this sort of game doesn't seem to grab me any more. Definitely recommended for fans of this style of game. Don't be put off by its graphics. Like a good book, the pictures are in your head.

A tower defence game with space ships.

Highly customizable and extremely fun, but with poor replayability. Worth a bit of coin if you're a fan of tower defence games.

I didn't take notes from back then. All I have are some saved fleets. Some of the game gets extremely hard, especially with technology restrictions. I fucking hate having those restrictions. This was a big downer to playing all the way through.

Bonus points for the author throwing away all sense of storyline. Fuck all that shit, I just want gameplay. I'm not joking.
