When it comes to strategic vehicular combat there has never been a game as engaging and as robust as Dark Wind.(…)Anyone who is interested in turn based strategy games, car combat, or an MMORPG that has perma death and permanent losses look no further.

If a little bit of action dog fighting is on your palette Altitude is a sure fire cure for those blues. The demo is extremely open, giving you access to two great planes, one of which is the plane I use anyway even with the full version. This game is absolutely worth downloading.– 8.0 from GameTunnel

Escape from Dr. Ichie’s Factory
We all know what Bianco-Bianco does best, and they do it again. Everything we know them for is here: puzzles that make sense without being too obvious, photorealistic graphics (and a nice panning system from screen to screen), a little pixel-hunting (but not a lot), and (*sigh*) no soundtrack whatsoever. I know some games are over-the-top with it, but I wouldn’t have minded at least a *ping* when you picked up an item.– JayisGames
Lights is the new room escape game from Neutral, the authors of Vision, which was our choice and yours for the best escape game of 2008. Once again, Neutral doesn’t shake up the formula, choosing instead to focus on inventive puzzles, gorgeous rendered scenes, and lasering your mind with likability rays.– JayisGames
