SUPERHOT (Prototype) (WWW)
Action 13 September 2013
SUPERHOT is an unusual FPS developed by Blue Brick studio. Finished in just 7 days, the first version of the game was presented during the 7 Day FPS Challenge in 2013. Gameplay of SUPERHOT consists of eliminating subsequent opponents in sterile rooms and corridors, where time stands still as long as the player doesn't move. The game focuses not on the shooting itself, but rather on achieving the mastery of time control which allows you to dodge bullets while accurately aiming at the heads of your enemies. You start the game with no weapons, but you can find them on enemies’ corpses. Ammunition is limited and even a single shot can kill your avatar, forcing you to restart the game. SUPERHOT features a minimalistic visual style with a palette of colors basically limited to white, dominating the environment, contrasting with red opponents and marks left by the bullets.

A free fan-made 2D web-based game, later published by Bohemia Interactive. The production was based on the survival game DayZ, which in turn was a full-fledged version of an ArmA II mod. In terms of content and mechanics, MiniDayZ is not much different from the original—the game is set in the zombie-infested Chernarus and you, as one of the survivors, are trying to last as long as your can in the hostile world. You explore the vast area in search for food and equipment, and the latter can be also crafted, allowing you to get weapons or other useful tools to fight the undead. Zombies are not your only enemies, as other survivors can also be a problem; they can try to kill you and take your supplies. The game features a singleplayer mode and 16-bit visuals.

A unique online game developed by M28 studio. We start as a single cell and must devour other cells or granules lying on the map to grow bigger. However, with increased size comes decreased speed, and we lose mass when we are idle. This means we must remain mobile and look for food, but also avoid contact with viruses the can be bound on map. The game gets even more complicated with the option of splitting a cell into two (up to sixteen) to increase the speed. The problem is that our unified avatar has to be 10% bigger than its prey, and after splitting each part must have 30% mass more than the cells it wants to eat. All of this is presented with very simple, if not minimalistic, visuals

Action 20 March 2015
A spin-off to the popular browser game League of Angels. In contrast to the first game in the series, League of Angels: Fire Riders is a mix of a MMORPG, a strategy game and a card game. The title was developed for mobile devices, but it is also available via web browsers. The game takes place in the same universe as the original League of Angels, in which humans and angels combine forces against the evil. During the game the player can recruit more than a hundred characters of different classes and use them to create a unique team. The gameplay consists mostly of fights in which the key to victory lies in the selection of the right team members and to using the correct tactics. As the game progresses, the characters learns new abilities and upgrades their equipment, which allows the player to take on even harder challenges, both against AI-controlled enemies and other players. The game offers many game modes and various minigames that enable the player to obtain valuable experience and equipment. League of Angels: Fire Raiders features cartoonish graphics.

A browser MMO developed by Bigpoint. The game takes players to the depths of the ocean, where they take control over a submarine and explore a vast world, fight numerous opponents (including other players in the PvP mode), and complete numerous assignments. One begins his journey by choosing one of the three feuding factions - one's decision determines not only the appearance of his character but also the type of the ship he gets to control throughout the entire adventure. In Deepolis, a player is tasked with surviving in the most dangerous territories of the in-game world. He can do this by leveling-up, developing his character, acquiring new vessels, and special upgrades, such as more efficient turbines, better armor and various weapons (featuring torpedoes, mines, depth charges, sonic guns, and lures). Deepolis delivers decent audiovisuals. Moreover, a player is bound to appreciate the simple, yet intuitive interface.
