Indie Intermission Sunday Round Up: Retro Revival


Hello and welcome to Sunday and my round up of my top free picks for the week. This week has been yet another great week and with the amount of games online the difficult bit is often picking from the vast selection of awesome titles. This week I have picked some older games and some different games but they all have one thing in come, they are awesome.

As always if you want to link to the original article click the title, however if you would like to play the game click the image.

Monday: ’Boredom’ Are You Really That Bored?

Boredom ss01

Boredom is a great little game that adopts this amazing minimalistic style and really runs away with it. Although the visuals are crisp and simple the gameplay is highly refined and allows for some great challenges in the unrelenting platformer.

Wednesday: ’This Is Not Sparta’ A Spartan Holiday

This Is Not Sparta ss02

This Is Not Sparta is a fun little title that is very cute and although it has no real story or depth is just a lot of fun. It’s basically an infinite runner but with some great graphics and interesting mechanics really make this a stand out time waster.

Thursday: ’Alphaland’ A Glitch In The System

AlphaLand ss03

Alphaland brings in a lot of really neat ideas creating this pseudo broken game that makes up the majority of the mechanics. Alphaland really brings in many great ideas that I’ve not really seen used very much else where making this one stand out game.

Friday: ’House Of Dead Ninjas’ A New Style Of Kung Fu Fighting

House Of Dead Ninjas is a game that has been around for sometime and has really generated quite the cult following over the years and it is easy to see why. The graphics style is spot on and goes hand in hand with all the sound choices making for one fun little title that brings back a lot of what we love about generations past.


 I hope you have enjoyed my run down for the week and have enjoyed playing some if not all of the games I’ve selected this week. If you are looking for a new game to try be sure to come back tomorrow midday for an all new Indie Intermission.
