Play as a former USAF pilot that’s called upon to deliver certain illicit goods for the criminal underworld.

Krashlander is all about the physics. Speed down huge mountain slopes to gain speed and wipe out the robots in your way. Manipulate the body of your skier using the directional pad on the right side of the screen to crouch, bend backwards or forwards, and extend.

Quetzalcoatl is totally unique yet quite familiar. The idea of the game is to drag snakes through blocky mazes in order to get their points to match the colors underneath. The difficulty is that you have a limited amount of space to work with, requiring you to plan ahead and, at times, backtrack. The game includes a total of 180 fiendishly designed puzzles to work through.
