Super Stacker 2
A game based on stacking objects on eachother in a way that makes them stable. It’s simple, but horribly addictive 🙂

BubbleQuod
Great little physics-driven platformer with havy puzzle focus

Sproing Reloaded
Physics-based action game where you destroy orbs by swining a ball on a rope/chain.

Twin Shot
Platform game where you have to get rid of all the enemies in each level using arrows (not just for attacking, but also for platforming)

Totem Destroyer 2
In each level you must bomb all of the destructible blocks (otherwise known as totems) by clicking on them, without allowing the golden idol(s) to touch the ground. While the charcoal-gray indestructible blocks provide the eventual resting place for the idols, you must still blast your way through all the plain brown totems, the bouncy green sloppy totems, and several new varieties that can explode, fly away, or only be destroyed when they touch another of their kind.– Jayisgames

Din
“Din is a single-player audio recognition game. Bill has a lot of loved ones, who all need him, but he can sometimes get pretty overloaded with requests. The player must listen for audio cues to press keys requested by friends and family. A correct response within a few seconds earns a point. An untimely or incorrect response deducts a point. Neglect your friends enough and they will give up on you! Treat them too well, and you may just get overwhelmed by your popularity.”

You Probably Won’t Make It
It’s an extremely difficult platformer which involves spikes, double jumps and recorded deaths. That’s right – when you die, not only must you restart the level again, but your spilt blood and death path stick around. You’ll soon find each level becomes coated in red and your frustration rising. It’s a nice little time-waster for when boredom sets in – just don’t try too hard to complete all 20 levels, you might pop a vein.-Indiegames blog

The Black Yeti
A simple puzzle game by the developer of Rara Racer and Mirror Stage, The Black Yeti tells the story of large ape creature who has to devour all intruders to the cave without them noticing its presence.The game was created in under a weekend for a friendly Mini Ludum Dare competition, hence the lack of polish and content. There are about ten levels to play in total.– Indiegames blog

A to B Basset
A to B Basset is an arcade game created by Adam Lobacz for a friendly TDC competition, where players get to drag a Basset Hound around the rooms of an old house in an attempt to reunite the puppy with its favorite red ball.– Indiegames blog
