LugaruHD kicks hard...

And by hard we mean hardware - It requires a pretty powerful machine to enjoy...
It seems LugaruHD is HW OpenGL only, software OpenGL wouldn't be fast enough to handle it.
Otherwise, it's pretty nice and very fast on a GF7800GT, in 1440x900 with High details.
Ported by Yannick Erb.

Anyway, Lugaru (pronounced Loo-GAH-roo) is the predecessor to Overgrowth. It is a DRM-free, third-person action game available for Mac, Windows, and Linux. The main character, Turner, is an anthropomorphic rebel bunny rabbit with impressive combat skills. In his quest to find those responsible for slaughtering his village, he uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy involving the corrupt leaders of the rabbit republic and the starving wolves from a nearby den. Turner takes it upon himself to fight against their plot and save his fellow rabbits from slavery.

GISH - sticky glob of gaming goodness...

Gish isn't your average hero, in fact he's not your average anything... see Gish is a ball of tar. A Sunday stroll with his lady friend Brea goes awry when a shadowy figure emerges from an open man hole and pulls Brea into the ground below. Following Brea's calls for help Gish suddenly finds himself in the subterranean sewers of Dross, a long forgotten city filled with twisting corridors, evil traps and some of the most demented creatures imaginable.

With his gelatinous structure as his only means of defense Gish must follow the echoing cries of his damsel in distress deep into the earth below. What freakish creatures dwell in this subterranean land? Who is Brea's captor? And just how far down does the rabbit hole go?

Life isn't easy when you're a 12 pound ball of tar...

The version available was ported by Yannick Erb.

You'll need to download the demo version of the game or buy the full version and install data from it.

Super Methane Bros - Puff and Blow...

Super Methane Brothers is a 1993 platform arcade game released for Amiga by Apache Software Ltd..
The gameplay is similar to Taito's Bubble Bobble.

Puff and Blow each have a Methane Gas Gun which fires a cloud of immobilising gas. If this comes into contact with a bad guy he will be absorbed into the gas and then float around the screen for a limited time. Bad guys are harmless in this state. Puff and Blow must suck the floating gas clouds into their guns and throw against a wall to destroy them. Bad guys then turn into bonuses which can be collected.

This is a conversion of the Commodore Amiga game, by Mark Rombust with permission by Apache Software Ltd to release this game as GPL. AROS port has been done by Yannick Erb.
