Weekend Download №46
A lot of first person gory goodness on this edition of Weekend Download. Two of our featured games are first person shooters, while a couple others pour on the macabre in their own special way, even if they happen to be packed with colorful pixel art!
8-bit Killer (Windows, 15.5MB, free) - Created with Game Maker, 8-bit Killer is a first person shooter done in the style of an early NES game. Work your way through Wolfenstein-style maze levels while collecting ammo and health and shooting foes that stand in your way. Great chiptune soundtrack, a surprisingly long game, and even though the visuals are retro-simple, they're charming.
Black Shades (Windows/Mac, 1.3MB, free) - In this simple-looking polygonal FPS, you play the role of a psychic bodyguard who must protect the VIP dressed in white from all manner of evildoers in the city. Until then, roam the streets offing braindead pedestrians at your leisure.
Ainevoltas 2 (Windows, 12.6MB, free) - From the creator of Final Vision comes another intriguing (and sometimes campy) sidescrolling platformer laced with delicious role playing elements. The castle has been overtaken by monsters, and armed with your sword, a lofty pair of jump boots, and the ability to upgrade your stats with ability points earned by defeating enemies, you get to clear it of evil!
The Infinite Ocean (Windows, 4.1MB, free) - Sick of, you know, being happy and playing cheery, colorful games? This dark and depressing adventure title is the antithesis of sugar-coated gaming. We even had to brighten up the screenshot so it wasn't just a black blur. You've been warned!
