Been a while since I put one of these up, so chances are the Greenlight escapees listed below aren’t exactly ‘recent’, even if they are all ones I found interesting enough to vote for. Also, only the first two are former Greenlight Limbo picks, but… figured I’d include non-limbo’s too, because, variety is the spice of green. Or something.
Huenison (@RetroGamerCD) – Greenlight
Inspired by a variety of C64/Amiga and arcade classics including Vital Light, Arkanoid, Space Invaders and Tetris, Huenison is a frantic-paced hybrid of shoot ’em up and colour-matching puzzle game presented in a neo-retro, unique dot-matrix visual style. Piloting a small mobile cannon back and forth across the bottom of a well, you must cycle through your six coloured beams, firing at the descending onslaught of corresponding coloured blocks. Missed shots bring the deadly zapper closer to your cannon, and missed blocks raise the ground they touch.
tricone lab (@joshuabsinger) – Greenlight
The aim is to create units of tricone inside microscopic multicellular organisms. To solve each puzzle, you must interact with the components and structure of the organism. For example, you must often use catalysts to combine basic resource nodes into useful compounds. Or sometimes, break apart compounds to release their resources. You must change the cell structure, sometimes breaking open cell walls, at other times creating new divisions within a cell. Each level can only be solved by figuring out the right sequence of interactions. As you progress, different elements are introduced, creating more difficult logic puzzles and requiring you to think outside the cell.

GunWorld is a love letter to 8-bit action games! It’s a meticulously crafted homage to everything great about classic game design and action heroes of the 1980s! An emphasis on high challenge and non-linear progression means GunWorld is not for the feint of heart.

With each new piece of equipment additional options present themselves, encouraging experimentation and repeated level runs.
