Mega Man: Super Fighting Robot

Creator’s YouTube Page || Official Download

Hey, it’s another Mega Man fangame and this one even actually stars the Blue Bomber himself! I’ve covered one of these nearly every month on Indie Overlook and there are quite a few more out there which I’d like to cover in the future, so for this article on Mega Man: Super Fighting Robot I’ll be experimenting with the format a bit.

Chalk Gameplay

Chalk

Official Site

Chalk may be one of the older indie games developed by Joakim Sandberg, also known as Konjak and more well-known for Noitu Love 2 and the upcoming Iconoclasts, but it is far from unpolished.

Princess Remedy in a World of Hurt

Psi Knuckle is the newest freeware game from Bunaguchi and it’s not pulling any punches.

Freem Page

Giant Cutter is half shmup, half not-quite-platformer, and completely bizarre. Taking place across four stages, the ship flies through space, cuts through enemies inside planets, and encounters increasingly-enormous bosses. There are no weapon upgrades and the normal attack has an unusually limited horizontal range, but the ship lives up to the game’s name as a portion of a constantly-refilling bar can be consumed to make a giant blade sprout forth from the top of the ship as it lunges forward across the screen to cut down anything in its path.
