Iji (PC Windows/Freeware)

Just found this little freeware gem. Looks at bit like Another World, but the gameplay is comparable with Metroid or Zillion.






Quote:
Iji is an action-packed strategic platform shooter with a detailed story, large levels with multiple paths, powerful bosses and lots of secrets. There are alternate gameplay events, dialogues and scenes depending on what you do, a wealth of extras and bonus features, and seven stats to upgrade through a leveling system. Iji herself has superhuman strength and abilities, and can crack Nanotechnology, use her enemies' most devastating weapons against them, and be a pacifist or a killer which changes her mood and the fate of those around her. Soundtrack by Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne McCullhough, songs also by Tom Mauritzon and Captain Goodnight (and LifeForce, but their song was not originally recorded for Iji).

I can confirm it is a nice game to play, with quite an interesting story, some 'side' quests (posters) and things to unlock.

However, I'm waiting for the 1.3 version to play it further, since it seems it will bring some important changes, as mentionned by the author in the 'news' section.


By the way, it is a game created by GameMaker, as is the Lost Vikings 'clone' named the Lost Snowmen (mentionned by s2325 here)

Here are two 'best of' made with GameMaker recommandations threads:

http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=407895

and the main GameMaker creations thread:
http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showforum=12


There is a large variety of games, some for quick games, some very involving. I'm sure most people here can find something to their likings.
Of the few I tried, I can vouch for:
Robbie Swifthand , a sort of puzzle/platform/trap avoiding game (a bit like Rick Dangerous)

Frozzd , a platformer in space (playing with the gravity of the planetoids)

Mega Block Man , a 3D platformer
