Top ten picks out of the pirate bay bundle

Top ten picks out of the pirate bay bundle

In the year 2014 Australian artist trashymctrashboy created a bundle that consisted of 101 indy games and offered it for free download.

At the time it seemed like a bargain for two main reasons:

    1. All the games are for free.
    2. There are 101 games to choose from.
It was a lot like the knockoff NES cartridges you pick up at flee markets. It says 101 or 999999999 or 356 games but actually it has 4 games!


I’ve taken the time to play all the games and filter out the 10 I think that are worth your time.

 Please put in consideration these two points:

    1. The list is subjective, it’s the games I like or found playable.
    2. A lot of the flash games didn’t work on my computer, despite having a flash player installed “Gnash”.
With that being said, lets list out the games. I’ll upload my pack and drop a link at the end of the post. If you are interested in the whole thing, it’s on web archive [dot] com.

But before we look at the good games (in comparison) let’s try to understand the purpose behind this bundle and what kind of games it has?

The bundle was created as an attempt to shine a light on the less known indy developers and share their works as a work of art.

  • Some games are made as homage to the Atari 2600, meaning that the graphics and sounds are non-existent.
  • Other games are similar to creepy pastas, generally scary and creepy.

  • And some are unplayable mash of pixels and horrid noises.

While reviewing this bundle AVGN (the angry video game nerd) came to mind, I found myself shouting some of his catch phrases at the screen.

The games from [A-Z]

1. Abandoned
 
The game has a dark atmosphere to it and seems really interesting.

2. Blockman gets more

 
This game is very similar to Pacman, only that he doesn’t eat ghosts, he eats pallets and can’t backtrack an empty trail. Has an interesting puzzle mechanisms to it.

3. Bunnies back into your cage
A simple puzzle game where you try to put bunnies back into their cage using carrots. The trick is to use as little moves as possible. 

4. Connect
A numeric puzzle game.
5. CrissCross
An interesting game similar to battle tank and chip’s adventure. You need to collect keys to get out of dungeons. The keys are inside enemies that you shoot. 
6. Ghost Witch
 
In this game you play as a witch and flight ghosts. The interesting concept in this game is that you play as the witch and her “ghost” to solve puzzles and advance in the game.
7. Konky Dong
 
In this game you play as Donkey Kong and stop the Mario brothers from saving Pauline. It has a good game play and some backhand humor to it. 
8. Nitro butts
 
A fast paced shooter game. Similar to Atari 2600 games.
9. Old Man Johnson
 
A puzzle game where you save old Man Johnson from falling to his doom.
10. Snowball
 
A platform game where you generate a snowball and toss it around, the bigger the ball the better the boom!
