Update (31st january 2010)

Finally done. New pages for 2010 mods and freeware games were added. Sorry for the delay

2010 GAMES

Fix-it-Up 2: World Tour
In the end Fix-it-up: World Tour definitely fulfills every expectation, though without being as innovative as the first game. The concept still works great and ensures the game’s rank being one of the few unique time management games out there. Enjoy a trip all over the world with an interesting story, gorgeous graphics, funny details and be prepared to invest at least six hours to do so.8.0 from Gamezebo

Vacation Mogul
Vacation Mogul will entertain players of all levels and more than satisfy real estate game fans. Unlike many Build-a-lot copycats, Vacation Mogul succeeds in standing on its own two feet with its good pace, variety, colorful graphics and challenge.8.0 from Gamezebo

Galcon Fusion
Sequel to a great indie game

Victoria 2
New grand strategy game from Paradox Interactive, know for games like Europa Universalis III (8.5 from IGN), Europa Universalis: Rome (8.7 from IGN) or Hearts of Iron III (8.5 from IGN)

Frozen Synapse
An indie simultaneous turn-based tactical game.

Future Wars
Turn based wargame from Radon Labs, makers of Drakensang (7.6 from IGN).

Majesty 2: Kingmaker
First add-on a managment game that got 7.5 from IGN.

Wizard Land
Given that there are about 90 levels, and each level is as dynamic as the last, Wizard Land offers hours of amazing, original puzzle gameplay. Given how few stand-out puzzlers are out there, Wizard Land is definitely not to be missed.8.0 from Gamezebo

Mortimer Beckett and the Lost King
Mortimer Beckett and The Lost King is a touch too short to get full marks (expect about four hours of gameplay if you don’t rely too heavily on the game’s generous hint system), but nevertheless it’s an enjoyable and polished ride that makes most of the other recently-released hidden object/adventure games look embarrassingly amateurish by comparison. This is one well-crafted gem that you won’t want to miss out on.8.0 from Gamezebo

The Mirror Mysteries
. It’s a shame that it’s over so quickly, as its inventive style is a refreshing change of pace from the usual hunts. If you don’t mind the briefness of the encounter, though, this is a particularly enjoyable HOG. 8.0 from Gamezebo

Closure
Unique puzzle platformer that’s expanded and improved follow up to a great freeware game.

Max & the Magic Marker
Indie physics based 2D platform game.
