Beyond All Reason: Open-Source RTS Inspired by Total Annihilation:

No Trace of Duel Toys 2, The Black heart, or Super Cosplay War Ultra can be found ...

And the correct download link for Golden Axe Myth should be:

Golden Axe myth is gone ...

so is Blue Lacuna.

Thanks, links fixed

No One Lives Forever 1 and 2 are free:
WHAT!! No way. These two are probably my top 5 games of all time. They are both critically acclaimed and a classic FPS that focuses a lot on story, humor and gameplay. Sadly, they are not as popular as they should be. I could possibly write a big review on these games if time permits. I will be updating this list soon to include these FPS in a category where story based freeware FPS are limited.

Streets of rage Remake .... appears to be gone. There is just a graphic left. sad

LittleFighter2 - not Supported past Windows 7 ....

Lugaru - Costs $10 - Only a Free DEMO Game ...

I have updated the link for SORR. Let me check for the other two.

Little Fighter 2 requires MS VC 2005 SP1 to work, I will try it out in the coming days.

There's an open source version of Lugaru that I have updated in the links, will check out if it's fully free.

TAGAP3 (The Apocalyptic Game About Penguins #3) is a Windows 2-D platformer shoot-em-up sequel to TAGAP/TAGAP2

TAGAP3 Continues the Story Arc of TAGAP / TAGAP2 ...

2006 –IAU ridicules Pluto by revoking its planetary status
2015 –NASA's New Horizons probe tries to spy on Pluto
20XX –Planet Pluto responds

And that response is a declaration of war. The only thing standing in between the approaching space penguin army and the unsuspecting Earth is one cyber-penguin, Pablo. Of course, thanks to their Prophet, the Pluto Conclave knows this – and Pablo is thrown into a prison cell before he has any idea of what's going on.

Now, stranded in a prison cell on an alien world, Pablo has to escape, save the world and somehow get back home.

Oh, and in TAGAP 3 You are Pablo. Good luck!

Sonic 3 A.I.R. - a fan-made widescreen remaster of Sonic 3 & Knuckles:

The game "Blue Lacuna" is GONE ... redirects someplace else

Thanks! I have updated the link. Will look into other suggestion as well.

Java Fabled Lands is a Java Based computer adaption of the first 6 Fabled Lands books. Belongs in Best Free Interactive Fiction Game - Text Based / Narrative category.

These 7 "Print" books - the first 6 of which make up this java adaptation / interactive game - are like the "Fighting Fantasy" or "Choose Your Own Adventure" BOOKS - Your real time choices actually change the game itself: and influence the Outcome! I've been stuck in there for 7 years now: and it doesn't look like I'll escape any year soon.
