LowProfileGames

Here are some games that you, the viewer, probably never even heard of (when they were released to the market of course) - though not necessarily for the worse.

Teleglitch

Top-down shooters are not quite extinct yet.

The Spirit Engine 2

One of very few indie games that actually deserves its great music - and one of even fewer indie games that is fully freeware.

Alien Shooter (2003)

When Jeff Gerstmann describes the game as "you shoot at aliens", you should already well know that it's inconsequential and cheesy silliness.

Journey of a Roach

Journey of a Roach's shortness and unrealized potential makes it difficult to recommend over Daedalus Entertainment's other publications.

The Whispered World

You can polish gold coins with grindstones and make arrowheads out of them in this one.

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav

'Tis quite a bittersweet tale.

A New Beginning

With such a generic title like that, it is no wonder that this game is so low-profile.

Ultratron

In which psychedelic neon-laden visuals hurt the gameplay.

Hoard

Pillaging and burning has never been so cheesily fun.

A showcase of how silly robots can be when left to their own devices.

Titan Attacks!

If you want to look how old-school arcade games would look like given "modern" treatment, there's Titan Attacks.

Gratuitous Space Battles

In this game, 2D space battles are reduced to a matter of mixing and matching ships and parts. No playing space admiral in this one.

Kudos 2

It's a young adult life-simulator minus a lot of the frills in The Sims and with a hell lot more text to go with its complexity.

Cubetractor

Singaporeans can make games too. With that said, it is competently done and it does contribute some things to the box-pushing/pulling subgenre of puzzle games.

Action Henk

It is a time attack platformer which rewards skill, but it is low-profile for reasons which can be obvious.
