Small / Independent Gaming Links - Part II

This is a followup to my first post. Click the link below to see some links and thoughts about a few interesting, independent, free games that you may never have heard of.

First off, we have two constructor set type puzzle games. You use the tools provided to put together machines that accomplish certain goals.

Fantastic Contraption - Assemble a self-propelled contraption to move past obstacles and reach the end goal.

Incredibots - Similar to Fantastic Contraption, but with a lot more complexity in regards to the types of machines you make.

The Eyeballing Game - Very simple concept, but engaging nonetheless. Find out how accurate you are when gauging angles, distances and straight lines.

Auditorium - This is an interesting concept. You move and resize circles to deflect rays through certain spots on the screen. As you successfully do so, bits of music play. The object is to get all of the bits of music to play at the same time. It's basically a puzzle game, but the ebb and flow of the music as you try and manipulate the rays properly lends an ethereal and calming air to the whole process.

Minotaur China Shop - I havent played this one yet, but the concept makes me giggle.

Fun-Motion Physics Games - Blog with commentary and links about various games with physics.
