Cube Trains is a puzzle game where you build elevated railways in a city. It features 3D puzzles, unlimited undo/redo, and smart placement of pieces. The non-linear level graph means you don't have to beat a level before unlocking the next one. The game comes with a built-in level editor, so you can build and share your own corners of the city.
Diagnil is a GUI application to help solvers of diagramless crossword puzzles. It accommodates puzzles distributed electronically using several file formats (puz, jpz, xpf, and ipuz) as well as those distributed in print form. Although software for conventional crosswords has existed for years, the diagramless variant has received little attention. Diagnil attempts to fill that void. It lets you solve puzzles by entering words, placing them on a grid, and moving them around the screen until the final shape is achieved.
Octaspire Crates! is a scriptable, skinnable, extensible, and relocatable 3D action puzzle game. All the missions, game entities (or crates), game states, and configuration of the game engine are implemented as plain text Lua-scripts. So, if you know Lua, you can write new game entities, game states, missions, and levels with any text editor, without any special development tools. New skins can be created with any image editor that can save .png images, dropped into a new subdirectory under the resources/textures directory, and changed in the configuration file config.lua. Crates has also its own (simple) implementations for all the different container classes it needs (like vector, string, and so on) to keep the external dependencies fewer.
Zaz is an arcade action puzzle game where the objective is to get rid of all incoming balls by rearranging their order. Currently it includes 20 different levels and two modes of gameplay.

Primrose is a game that presents a deep puzzle that is completely fresh. Primrose's gameplay is deceptively simple: Surround tiles of one color with another color to clear them. The surrounding tiles flip color, leading to possible chain reactions. Larger groups cleared and longer chain reactions are awarded more points. This simple setup has many interesting emergent properties, creating a challenging game without resorting to external gimmicks like time pressure. The game also features a world-wide online high score board complete with instant replay, move-by-move, of all top-scoring games.
Omnitux aims to provide various educational activities based on multimedia elements (images, sounds, and text). Possible activity types are associations, puzzles, counting activities, etc. There is support for multiple languages and multiple screen resolutions (by using SVG vector graphic files and high quality bitmap files). Omnitux activities are described in XML files, so it is possible to create new activities without modifying the program.
