Metroid™ – It's you against the evil Mother Brain in the thrilling battle of Metroid!
The first installment of the immensely successful Metroid series introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic bounty hunter Samus Aran. As Samus™, your mission is to penetrate the space pirates' home planet, Zebes, and keep them from destroying the galaxy with the dangerous life forms known as Metroids. Metroid has all the high-tech weaponry, creepy tunnels and crawly alien creatures that anyone could ask for.
With its deep and complex game play, excellent music and a rare sense of setting, it establishes a frightening ambience that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time.
Aahh! Spot The Difference – Demonstrate your skills of observation in this addictive "Spot the Difference" game! Complete 40 challenging levels in 4 unique scenarios by spotting the differences between the upper and lower screen.
But you must be quick, as most of the objects and the camera are constantly moving. You can also test your skills in three additional modes: Survival, Speed Attack and Time Attack. You will earn one star for finding the required number of differences, two stars will be awarded if you find more, and if you find all the differences in the level you will receive three stars.
Aya and the Cubes of Light (demo version) - Keep on the Light! Solve the cubic mazes and rekindle the stars! Exceptional hybrid of puzzle, platform game and 3D action!
What's gotten into Cseom!? Instead of keeping the Cubes running, he's taking the Energy Packs out of the terminals! The Cubes are the power sources of the stars, and if they stop working it gets dark!
Play Aya, the daughter of the Cube Corporation. Teleport onto the Cubes to collect the Energy Packs to get the Cube engines working again. But it's not that easy to find your way around; you'll have to think around outside the box and mustn't get disorientated, even when you're upside down!
