Innoquous 5 by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.fw.png

Innoquous 5, the fifth in the game series that began with 2008's Innoquous, is a huge puzzle platformer... with a twist! Hit a gravity arrow or jump into a flipper and you can rotate gravity, opening new paths through each of the huge collection of levels!

Make your way through 175 levels (100 brand-spanking new to the game, 75 from Innoquous 4) riddled with alternative paths and shortcuts, encountering tens of obstacles, unique puzzles and a need to invent some bizarre strategies to finish them!

All 175 levels are playable in six game modes, for hundreds of hours of content:

  • Standard: Get to the exit. That's it.

  • Bunny Hunt: Find the hidden bunny trapped in a crate somewhere off the beaten track.

  • Conditional: Obey a certain restriction in finishing the level that will force you to undertake new routes.

  • Time Limit: Get to the exit as fast as you can to obtain a gold, silver or bronze medal.

  • Fiery Floors: Complete the level with added flooring and obstacles to make your life difficult.

  • Chaser: Complete the level while a deadly clone of you is always one second behind you.

On top of that, there are multiple groupings of the levels in both Speedrun and the new Permadeath mode, in which you either see how quickly you can complete the entire grouping, or see how many you can complete before you die.

Find the secret note in each of the new 100 levels. They're never clear - some will even require you to perish to obtain them!

Each one will unlock a line of a poem explaining how you found yourself in this bizarre world, who sent you here, and what happens next!

If you run out of levels, the game also comes with a full-featured level creator! Give your level a name, a creator, a description, and begin drawing! Place every obstacle found in the main game, give it a gold, silve and bronze time limit, a conditional objective, place the bunny somewhere, and generally do pretty much everything found in the main game!

You can then enter the Created Levels menu, where the game will display you all of your custom levels along with tracking completion, just as it does regular levels. Feel free to share your levels with others and build up a collection! (You can find your levels in %localappdata%\Innoquous_5 on Windows.)

Orbit Frenzy by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.fw.png

You meet a race of aliens that are the friendliest in the world. They exist to love. There is no war.

One problem. They create Special Custard, a substance which to them is just a nutrient food. But to humanity, it grants extended life and is rich in minerals unseen on Earth.

You are Reginald Waft, a savvy British hipster businessman who's left it all - cheeky fried chicken with the lads, banter for days and even the occasional episode of your nearest soap opera with your mum - to ransack the planet. You might even take the concept of their planet and sell it to some British TV channel as a children's programme.

Go with your array of missiles that grapple onto things to steer, and also somehow collect the abundant Special Custard. Missile those cutesy swines before they sing you a song about learning things. And then get back to the lads back in Britain, drop a couple beers, re-curl your moustache and smash up the local gym.

Orbit Frenzy is the clean version of Telifrenzy, Allison James' (and by proxy, Chequered Ink's) entry into Ludum Dare 33.

1 Girl 2 Cups by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Wakka wakka, motherlovers.

You're an innocent, dual-uzi-wielding bikini-clad girl trapped in a Japanese burial ground, and the inhabitants aren't having any of it.

Dash around, collecting ammunition for your uzis. Find new and exotic weapons: like the Katana that is made out of purest grade aluminium maybe! Or the flamethrower that is secretly powered by love! Or maybe you're more into the inner workings of the chainsaw, since you're a bit of a carpentry fanatic... or are delusional and think that all the enemies are trees.

Upload your highscore to GameJolt, and have the leaderboard and the flashing display of the global best score permanently remind you how much worse you are than everybody else! And earn GJ trophies if you're into that sort of thing, you filthmongerer.

1 Girl. 2 Cups. 3 of something.

Hm.

Radslaughter by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

One hitman. One skateboard. Two pistols of a length that definitely isn't a result of overcompensation. Ten locations. Ten targets. Ten teddy-bears.

Slaughter them. Be rad. Radslaughter is a physics-based puzzle arcade game which gets difficult. Kill each of the targets without smashing your face open or being massively dismembered by razorblades. Find the secret teddy-bear in each level and complete them as fast as you can to get 5 stars (none of that 3 star crap here!)

Maddening Relapse by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Maddening Relapse is the sequel to 2009's madnessMADNESSmadness and its 2010 followups Remaddening and the YoYo Games-published spinoff Maddening.

The game is an intense endless runner with entirely procedurally-generated levels. You are a madman who simply goes by Madd Mann, and you perceive the world as a place where you run around in circles from an unrelenting wall, avoiding world gaps and spikes in the process. The wall conceals and reveals new terrain, and new to the series, wraps around the circle, always staying in view. The further you get from it, the closer you get to it!

Maddening Relapse will eventually also be available on iOS, Android, and potentially Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. I may also get around to other releases as well. Such is the power of GameMaker: Studio!
