I figured the blog is in Spanish (since it has links to Spanish Wikipedia). Here's some of the interesting games from the database that caught my attention:
  • Tecno - The Base - a futuristic FPS made in the early 2000s style, although apparently it was released much later than that.
  • PaybackTime 2 - an obvious X-COM clone, which was distributed as shareware in the nineties (here's their home page from back then), released for free in 2011.
  • Cosmos Quest series, obviously inspired by Sierra's Space Quest games.
  • StarFight series shmups.
  • A huge number of games produced by the German developer Motelsoft, ranging from Amiga and DOS adventure and RPG games to Windows FPS titles.

CodeRED: Battle for Earth and its sequel, CodeRED: The Martian Chronicles, are single-player precursors to Alien Arena. As far as I can tell, these are the final versions of both games (v4.0).

Just learned about a new game on the Chocolate Doom engine called CyberShade. It's an FPS which focusses on fighting lots of enemies at once. The game can have up to 99 single-player and 99 multiplayer levels, with continuous looped gameplay (once the last level is reached, it goes back to level 1). Currently, there are 4+1 single-player and 3 multiplayer levels. Other feature enhancements compared to Doom include random teleporters and an updated automap that shows enemy positions.

A distinctive feature of CyberShade is that it uses a palette of only 16 colours:


CyberShade is still in development. The current version can be downloaded from the official Doomworld thread of the project.

I just learned that the author of Dark Rage, a fairly obscure DOS side-scrolling shmup that came out somewhere in mid-90s, released the full version to the public last year.

Here's a gameplay video: YouTube link.
