If you love platformers that take you back to the good old times, Reed will certainly not disappoint. In Reed, you take the role of a tiny creature that has been created by an old supercomputer. Your creator is about to die as he has lost his magical cubes (yeah, we know), and your only hope of survival is to find them and bring everything back together.

This is a fairly standard platformer, as you are required to jump over various obstacles to reach the next stage. Some of the levels are quite challenging, which will certainly appeal to hardcore gamers. In any case, we're sure that the lovely pixel art and retro soundtrack of Reed will hit you right in the nostalgia gland.

CELL 13 is a "physics puzzle" title, featuring 13 big levels and over 65 unique puzzles. If you've ever got the chance to play Portal 2, this game feels a lot like it, although the action plays out from a different perspective.

Use crates, balls, glass, elevators, laser bridges, and portals to navigate through the levels. Individually, these objects may not be useful, but when used together with your creativity, you may find a solution to escape the cells.

Orbt XL is an endless and fast-paced arcade game that gets more challenging the longer you survive. You play as a planet that is orbiting around a black hole. Your goal is to stay in orbit while avoiding obstacles. If you come too close to the black hole, you get sucked in and it’s game over.

The title features simple one-touch controls but you’ll need to practice if you want to survive for a decent amount of time. The closer you orbit to the black hole, the more points you’ll accumulate, but you won’t have an easy time dodging everything that gets drawn to the black hole.

This casual 8-bit title is a mix of Mike Tyson's Punch-out and a Pokemon-like RPG. The gameplay is incredibly simplistic - you choose a class for your character and then you are thrown into an arena, tasked with slaying monsters, one after the other. The evil spawn gets tougher and tougher with each beast slain, and at every 10 levels, you get to fight a boss.

The controls are simple - you have one button for attack and three buttons for dodging. Your enemies have different attack patterns, and you have to make sure to avoid them to have a chance at progressing to the higher levels. Picking the "Novice" class at the beginning is recommended, as the game gives you cues as to where your enemy is planning to attack. After you gather enough points and get a grip of the mechanics, you can try out the other classes. Pro tip: attacking monsters just as they spawn will deal a critical hit.
