Weekend Download №38
Our main course this evening is a heaping plate of voxels served on a bed of romaine and topped with bits of rock from an underground jail cell. Following that will be a tiny space ship served in bite-sized pieces that must be consumed within three seconds.To wash that down feel free to eat as many bugs as you see fit.
Voxelstein 3D (Windows, 30MB, free) - A remake loosely based on the classic first person shooter, Wolfenstein 3D, using Ken Silverman's Voxlap engine. For the uninitiated, Voxlap is build around voxels, pixels living in a 3D world that function as building blocks in much the same way as polygons. Voxelstein 3D is just one short level but serves as an excellent showpiece for the engine. Having an almost fully destructible environment makes for a very fun time!
Made in Wired (Windows, 1MB, free) - Similar to the Four Second series of games (or Wario Ware, if that's your cup of tea), Made in Wired features a series of lightning-fast minigames centered around a shmup theme. You only have a few seconds to understand and complete each game before you're thrown into the next, so you might want to take a deep breath before firing up this game.
Bullfrog (Mac, 8.3MB, free) - Bugs. Never liked 'em. Frogs seem to love them, however, which is a bonus in this game. The six legged critters have invaded your home, and as a mighty bullfrog you must devour as many as you can. It's a cute, simple, relatively easy and kid-safe arcade game.
