Seriously, this game is completely awesome and has only been played 6 times. It’s a cross between a retro arcade shooter and a tower defense game and it is done really well. It definitely deserves more plays so someone go play this one now!
There are a lot of wicked awesome games out there. I thought I’d share my favourites so far so that you can check out some absolute gems. So here is my personal top 10:
1. Planet Life
A fun little game about life in the rat race. Manages to be incredibly cheerful despite featuring people starving to death in their apartments during the night.
2. T in Y World
Awesome ASCII art adventure game. Especially cool because players can expand the world that everyone plays in and can even edit the rules of the game. It really encourages people to get creative with how they play with it. Plus, the music is totally sweet.
This game is super intense. You are forced to dash across a deformable landscape that is being smashed by a barrage from alien invaders, and can stop along the way to shoot them down. Awesome.
Fun little game about a socially reclusive snail. This is the game that I think does the best things with the theme. Totally worth checking out.
5. Disregard All Humans
Who doesn’t love smashing and stomping on things with a big green dinosaur?
6. Cloud Realm
Floating villages and dogfights with mechanical dragons!
7. Memento XII
Takes the old ‘escape the room’ scenario and does some cool things with it.
8. Sub Atomic
Sick old school point and click adventure game. Reminds me of Monkey Island and games like that. Funny stuff.
9. The Tiny Pirate Knows Magic
It’s a short game but it’s hilarious. Go play this now!
10. Urth Defense
I love this one because I made it. Defend the planet from waves of missiles.
My game is now complete!

I made a tiny game for the tiny world theme. I’ve played it and think it is fun, but I’d love to hear other people’s opinions. Have a play and let me know what you think.
Looking forward to playing everyone else’s games.
Inspired by the Tiny World theme, I wanted to make a game that plays in a tiny window. In my game, you have to defend a tiny world from an onslaught of missiles. I’m hoping the tiny window will make the game more frantic and give it a certain claustrophobic feel.
