Sudoku :
SudokuThe sudoku is a grid game defined in 1979 by Howard Garns(USA), but inspired by the Latin square, and also from the problem of the 36 officers of the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler.
The Sudoku game has a grid of de 9×9 squares containing 9 grids of 3×3 squares. You have to place the figures 1 to 9 in each square, but , each figure can only appear once in each of the 9 grid of 3×3. And it can appear only once in each line and column.
The name sudoku comes from the abbreviation of the japanese game rules « Su-ji wa dokushin ni kagiru » , which means « it can only be one unique figure » (by square and by line). This abbreviation is associated to the letters Su- figure and Doku unique. In Japan, Nikoli is still the owner of the sudoku name; his competitors use an other name : they can call it by the original american name « Number Place » , or also by the word « Nampure », shorter. Some no japanese editors write it « Su Doku ».(source Wikipedia)

Transcend :
TranscendSubmitted at the 7th Independant Game Festival (IGF) by its author Jason Rohrer, this game looks like nothing known : you pilot a kind of ship called the ‘Glyph’ which tries to eliminate the enemy ships , the ‘Anti-Glyph’ and above all the ‘Great Anti-Glyph’. In order to do that, your ship will have to increase its shooting power by gathering ‘Eléments' in the center of the playground. In the first level, these are some small plants that grow into flowers. Obviously, the enemies (the Anti-Glyphs) will try to prevent you to win.
It is one of the rare 2D game (the only one ?) to produce stereophonic sound effects according to the game state. The only game to have a similarity with this one is Cultivation (normal, it is from the same author).
An amazing game, beautiful, and even psychedelic to be tried absolutely.

Yoda_SoccerYoda Soccer was inspired from Sensible Word Of Soccer (SWOS) a 2D soccer game from the 90’ that was originally on Amiga. The version for PC was out in November 1995. Yoda Soccer has been developped in the Blitzmax language ( ).

It is more over a soccer manager game , where the realism has less importance than the management strategy. So, Yoda Soccer is more like the games Kick Off 1 or 2 from our youth than a recent 3D soccer game. The keyboard is settable for the two players, because Yoda Soccer allow to play alone against the computer but also one to one against a friend. To play the game, you will have to fill a data base. For that, an editor exist allowing to create its own soccer players. (source official web site and
