Target Master. In this game, you are shooting at a standard circular target in a gale-force wind that changes direction once or twice a second. The objective is to score bull’s-eyes. To do that consistently, you need to account for the wind. And be patient.
The Spinner. This game is an abstract shooter. The title “character” is a set of spinning silver spheres — a large central sphere being rapidly orbited by six smaller spheres. The player unit is a golden triangle that fires bullets from its apex. You can aim and fire, and that’s all. The Spinner slowly spins toward your unit. You need to destroy the Spinner before it hits. The big central sphere is vulnerable to your bullets. A single hit will destroy it, and the entire system. But the small orbiting spheres are invulnerable to bullets. They deflect them in unpredictable ways, including right back at your little triangle. The game is played in rounds. How many will you win and how many will the Spinner win?
Particle Harvest. Once again, you find yourself in deep space, dodging all sorts of space junk. At the same time, you are trying to collect valuable, high-speed particles. While it has both touch and keyboard controls, this game is especially well-suited to mobile play.
Tanira Transit. This game is in the “crossing a busy road” category, only the busy road is outer space, and the traffic consists of asteroids and comets. The main problem is, your rocket ship can’t speed up or slow down. Once you launch it, the die is cast. Timing is everything. My best score is 11. No doubt I could do better with practice. The game fits the smart phone format well, but can be played on anything, using either keyboard or touch.
Purple Dude Dash. This is a one-level platform game, in which the object is to collect 20 gold coins in as few seconds as possible. My best time so far is 27 seconds, but I’m sure others can beat that. Give it a try! The game uses mouse/ touch or keyboard controls. The format is best suited for a tablet or laptop.
Flight Path Impossible. This is a side-scrolling endless flyer game, featuring a little red plane that you need to pilot between jagged mountain peaks. The game uses mouse/ touch or keyboard controls. The format is best suited for a tablet or laptop.
Make ’em Smile. This is a sorting game. In a sorting game, it’s as if you are working on a conveyor-belt, tossing parts into different bins as they slide by. Naturally, the speed gradually increases. The game uses mouse or touch controls, and is the perfect format for smart phones.
Saucer Attack! In this game, you must fend off an attack by the Saucer People, who are dropping stink bombs on your capital city. The stench is demoralizing the population, and will lead to surrender if you don’t do something. All you can do is use a hilltop defense turret to shoot the bombs as they fall. Shooting at the saucer itself is counter-productive. Your shots are likely to bounce off and hit the city. The game features my original game art.
Susan Dives into Regret. This is the second action game in the Susan Series, a vertical jumper in which you help the stick-figure adventurer escape the Shaft of Ever-Lasting Regret. Turns out the Shaft does not go on forever, but has seven levels. It is possible to win. The format is perfect for phones, and the game has the usual control options — keyboard, mouse, or touch.
Circle Shooter. Ironically, given the title, this is not a classic shooter. The computer does all the aiming and shooting. Your role, as player, is to load the correct ammunition. Otherwise, the auto-shooting is ineffective, and your turret will be quickly rammed and destroyed.
