One look at this game and its level of clarity and graphics make one want to look away, but if you are into puzzles and a little bit of a parkour fan, this is one game that you should try out.
The game when we tried it did feel smooth and snappy and had elements of parkour to it and a puzzle thrown in within the first stage itself. The primary enemy seems to be some of an alien lifeform which you shoot at with a gun that is charged by a unique energy type of magazine. The game also makes available collectable armour for players to provide extra HP.

A game that has the best soundtracks out of all the games on this list is what we would like to say about this one. The game revolves around the central character who as of the first level collects individual bullets, who are living, present on the floor. The enemy seems to be a cloud of malicious intent which we have to eradicate. The dialogues used may make you snicker a little occasionally.
