Free Conquest and Colonization of America is a remake of a fantastic old game from Microprose called Colonization. Those who have played Civilization will find the game style very similar. In Civilization, the game time goes from pre-history to the future, but in Free Conquest and Colonization of America, all action happens during the exploration age, from 1492 to 1800. The goal of the game is to build a colony in America and make this colony grow big enough to be able to achieve independence from the motherland. A player can choose among the English, French, Dutch, and Spanish nations, each having its own qualities and problems. During colonization, the player will face many challenges, such as negotiating (and making war, if necessary) with other European colonies and native tribes. Winning the hearts of the colonists (by making they feel that the colony is their home) is the key to getting enough support to fight for independence. Allowing religious freedom in your colony will attract more colonists persecuted for their faith in Europe.
Hydra Slayer is a Roguelike game focused on one thing: slaying Hydras. It is inspired by mathematical puzzles about brave heroes slaying many-headed beasts. Since each weapon can only cut off a specific number of heads (no more, no less), and then the Hydra regrows some of the lost heads, to defeat each Hydra, you need to find the sequence of attacks which kills it in the least number of wounds. Hydra Slayer also features divisor weapons, blunt weapons to stun heads, missiles, and shields, and a number of other magical items which are unique to this game.
Kinonk is a Pentominoes program written in C++. Pentominoes is a two-player board game where the goal is to be the last player to put a pentomino (a piece composed of five squares) on the board. Kinonk can also play Katamino, a variant of pentominoes. It uses a simple brute force algorithm, and can play any position perfectly if given enough time. You can constrain its time by giving an arbitrary time limit, or simply let it analyze everything. Charts can be generated using a Perl script included in the package.
