Developed by sheigeno is a neat little platformer that's all about a guy that is lost in a temple, of which he must escape from. Luckily at his disposal is a Jetpack that can help him reach places that most would never be able to reach. JETPACK: Escape from temple will give you just enough enjoyment to say "hey this is a pretty good game", but watch out for the enemies and obstacles as they will most likely kill you. There's plenty more to this small title, but I'll let you play to find out ;)
Classed as the first "troll" social farm game with full pvp, comes a game where you compete against another player in a crazy farming experience. This is Angry Farmers, by developers MadSword. But as you can probably tell by the cover shot, this is no ordinary farming game. Farming collides with fast paced combat and dynamic battles, through the use of strategy and skill experimentation. What also makes this game unique, according to the developers, is unlike other "social" games which you play all by yourself and visit your friends only once per day, in Angry Farmer you can play with your buddies all day long. The colourful design really stands out and add that to the simplicity of the game, it could be a lot of fun!

It's a slow news day today, so to give it that little bit of a kick up the rear, we have a new game via Kickstarter to show you. The developer Jon Dibble and soundtrack creator Ben Rawles has just announced (in their words), a Vivid fast-paced action RPG, called Reobirth: Magic's Awakening. The animation in this game looks superb and it also draws inspiration from such memorable classics such as Secret of Mana and Super Metroid. In this game you play as a character in a world of magic and mystery, with intense battles against unique creatures, and big bosses with challenging adventures across strange yet beautiful landscapes.

The Search for Oceanspirit Dennis is a new point and click adventure title from OneDollar Productions. It's also the developer's fifth point and click adventure that did not have the restraints of a competition time limit. Thus much more time was spent developing the title, so the end result is a good one. Featuring a rewarding medal system, comedic storyline, minigames, great artwork and unlockable director's commentary this is one classic point and click adventure you might want to give a play!

Originally released in 1983 was an epic laserdisc video game that many people still remember today, and that game was Dragon's Lair, which was originaly published by Cinematronics. It was so special, in the fact that not only was it a game, but it allowed you to play in an interactive experience in a cartoon animation. You didn't just watch a cartoon, you played it! What would be a simple of task of selecting the right actions at the right time, was usually met with certain cartoon death. This was a game that was fun for all the family and is now available on steam in all it's remastered glory with Full 720p HD Videos!

A game that can almost be described as Monkey Island, but based in Hell, is a hilarious adventure title from Falchion Games. This is Go to Hell Dave, a classic point & click adventure with a great list of voiced acted characters, that are full of wit and charm. You'll also have tons of weird and wonderful areas to explore and what's more, with plenty of interaction and classic puzzle solving, it will keep that Monkey Island retro feel flowing.

Dungeon Dwellers is a new Dungeon Keeper/Settlers style RTS from Rasmus Game Developments, that aims to bring that little bit of nostalgia into the modern day. Once again, you play the role of an evil Dungeon Lord who guides his minions into digging out and claiming the depths for his own, sound familiar? The Settlers part comes into it by the way of creating and pleasing your minions, with advanced production chains such as food and beer. But for the DK fans, you still have enemies to defeat, dungeons to create, Armour and weapons and much more to come. It's still in Pre-Alpha, so a lot of work still needs to be done, but with the developer claiming that the creatures have their own personalities too, it's peaked my interest!

Groupees have announced the Be Mine 8 bundle, in which you pay a certain price for a huge stash of epic games. Now in my opinion this is probably the best bundle we've posted so far on Indie Retro News, as it contains some pretty awesome titles, especially Patrician IV and DrakenSang. If you want to be a strong trader, with great graphics, long playability or an epic rpg with a great story, you can't go wrong with those two games, but check out the rest as well.

If you're old enough like me, you may well remember the Atari 2600, which was an 8-bit game console released in September 1977 by Atari, Inc. It had a fantastic list of games for it's time and one such game I fondly remember was California Games. I mean come on, who did not like the skateboarding or bike riding down the mountainside, such great fun. Well now you can relive those days with Javatari, which is a multiplayer Atari2600 emulator written in pure java. It looks very well made and there is also a two player option. However you will need the roms, which are searchable but we wont provide!
