Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
 – 

Classic fps

A classic fps whose influence nearly ruined the genre, but you can't really blame the game for its imitators.

Cognition Game of the Year Edition
 – 

Competent point and click

Not the greatest I've ever played, but it scratches a particular itch.

StarDrive 2
 – 

Could've been more

This game brings so many elements together that I'd love in a space game... but it's somehow less than the sum of its parts

Stable Orbit
 – 

Beautiful but basic

This game looks great, and it's a decent space station builder, but it feels limited.

Enforcer: Police Crime Action
 – 

Unique but unpolished

There's not much in the way of police sims like this aside from GTA mods, but to be honest, those mods probably have more polish than this game.

Diluvion
 – 

A casual-friendly submarine game with interesting FTL influences

Approachable gameplay that doesn't make you fuss around with too much submarine stuff. The ability to go to a 2D internal view and assign crew stations is a novel touch. The forthcoming 1.2 update looks to significantly improve upon the game, as well.

Airport Madness: World Edition
 – 

Casual air traffic control game

If you've played one of these, you've pretty much played them all. Manage departures and landings while avoiding crashes. Too casual for my taste.

A Valley Without Wind 1 & 2 Dual Pack
 – 

Ugly and unapproachable

Like most of Arcen's games, you have to look past the ugly presentation and noticeable faults to find the kernel of unique and interesting ideas. I was unable to do that for these games.

LA Cops
 – 

It's OK.

A decent top down/twin stick shooter, with a basic partner cover system and janky collisions. There are better games to play.

Breach & Clear: Deadline
 – 

A mediocre and misguided departure from the previous game

I guess if you really like zombies it could be worth a shot.

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition
 – 

A classic with modern presentation

Nice to play one of the most famous puzzle games of all time with some modern improvements

Meltdown
 – 

Well-produced but uninspired mobile shooter.

The game feels and plays well, but feels and looks like a mobile port. Fun but shallow

The Silent Age
 – 

A short and somewhat simple point and click

Not super challenging, and rather short, which works in its favor. Time travelling puzzles are mostly good

In Between
 – 

Difficult and well-made but not groundbreaking

A difficult puzzle platformer about shifting gravity with a compelling story
