Pixel Parodies’ Rise Of The Mushroom Kingdom 2 – Luigi and the Mushroom people wage warfare on the Koopas to avenge Mario’s death.

Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time – A faithful recreation of the DOS classic. Unfortunately it’s just as frustrating.’s Cats – Keep the cats following the lead cat by hovering over them with your mouse.

In the D drive currently: I’ve been content on saving a few bucks and just playing demos. Is it just me or are demos getting bigger in size but shorter in gameplay? Tron 2.0 had only one level, and it was only a boss fight with a cranky cyber-snake. Homeworld 2 was better, although I’m a bit disappointed there have been few gameplay enhancements from the original; I think the expansion Homeworld: Cataclysm in 1999 was even more innovative. Excellent story, it appears though, by putting all your struggles in a theological context.
