PBI submissions Xye, Adventures on Planet Zephulor, XBubble, I Have No Tomatoes

There are no lives or continues in the game. If the player dies, he/she simply restarts at the beginning of

PBI submissions Njam, FloboPuyo, Fly Hard, Don Ceferino HazaƱa, Circus Linux, Formido

and collecting powerups while trying to avoid ghosts who chase you.

FloboPuyo

Clone of the famous Puyo Puyo game.

Puyos are fancy smiling bubbles... But they can really be invading sometimes!

win the game if your oponent reaches the top of the board. You can play against computer or an other human.

games/flobopuyo

Fly Hard

This is a game similar to Thrust - you pick things up with your ship, carry them off, and drop them somewhere.
Exactly why this needs to be done is not well explained.

Features realistic(ish) physics: Explosions toss things around, some weapons knock enemies back, and of
course gravity is a constant companion. Improved weapons are available to replace the pathetic
peashooter that the player starts out with.
