Rorschach is an adventure game for PC and PSP in which you play the role of a detective called to an asylum where the chief doctor has been brutally murdered. The asylum is filled with suspects withholding the information you need, but in Rorschach there are no predefined questions. Everything that is said can also be used as a question on any person in the game. You'll need to make friends, manipulate and confront people to find their dark secrets and only then will you be able to find out who the murderer is and why he did it. [thanks to Jens Bergensten]

Super Mogura Tennis

October 30, 2007 1:11 PM | Tim W.

Super Mogura Tennis is a new tennis simulator by Krobon Station, a development team known for their eccentric horizontal shooter series made in the style of Parodius.

The Z, X and C keys are mapped to standard shots, smashes and special moves. Press down, then up and Z to make a lob. Execute volleys or drop shots by tapping the down cursor key twice before pressing Z. The blue gauge must be full before a special move can be initiated.

Your concentration is reduced quickly when attempting returning a smash. Without concentration, the general play does not slow down and returning an opponent's shot could be very difficult.

Only two playable characters and one type of court can be accessed in this demo. Also requires a decent hardware to run at a consistent speed.

'This is a test of a technique I call Orange Mapping to render a Mercury Skin. Orange mapping is basically a way to additively blend when rendering dynamic height maps that prevents capping at 1.0.'

Elebest is a decent Diner Dash clone by Square Enix, in which tables are replaced with elevators and kitchens substituted with buildings. The aim of the game is to place people into elevators and sending them to the floors they wish to arrive at, usually indicated by the color of their clothes. A time limit is shown on the top left of the screen, and players should avoid having a crowded lobby or the game will end.

Certain stations such as a cafe can be used to temporary clear the lobby a little. Bonus points are awarded when more than one passenger arrives on each floor, achieved by grouping a number of them dressed in similar colors into the same elevator. Watch out for men dressed in black, because they do not mix with the crowd and prefers riding the elevator alone if possible.

Six stages in total.

Stopple is a DirectX remake of Bloxorz, created by Rupert Hawkes with full permission from the original author Damien Clarke. The objective of the game is basically to get a piece of block to fall through a square hole at the end of each stage, all the while trying to avoid falling off the edges.

The player will be introduced to switches, bridges, tiles which responds to different pressures and even teleporters to complicate matters. Later on, smaller blocks are introduced to increase the overall difficulty of each puzzle.

There are thirty-three stages to complete.
