Your goal in each level is to guide pollution clouds from factories to air cleansing facility by changing direction of the wind with your "hurricane" pointer. Clouds shouldn't touch the pointer or high pressure winds areas, otherwise your global warming meter increases and if it reaches 100% you lose.
There are sixteen levels and arcade mode, available when all campaign levels are beaten with perfect score.
Chroelle : Quite a nice puzzler with AMAZING atmosphere. I liked every single part of the screens shown.
If this was not enough then the gameplay will help it along. MY only doubt about this game is that it might be too repetitive in the long run, but I am not sure if this is something to worry about.
A great game in my book, and the pollution theme doesn't scream in your face in a way that you get annoyed by the political correctness of it all. Amazing work once more by Mr. Chubigans.
Pater Alf : The theme of the YoYo Games competition was "Save the Planet", so that's the only reason...
I have to say that I don't like the theme of the game to much, as I think that global warming is an overhyped theme that is used by many interest groups to archieve their own goals

"greenTech" is a strategy/puzzle game in which you have to protect the planet from air pollution and global warming. To do so you control the direction and speed of the wind and have to lead the industrial air to cleaning facilities, so it doesn't get to the atmosphere.
I have to say that I don't like the theme of the game to much, as I think that global warming is an overhyped theme that is used by many interest groups to archieve their own goals (which are not always compatible with environmental protection). But the game itself has an interesting design and a very nice soundtrack. And as most games Mr. Chubigans created it is well worth playing.
"Fate by Numbers" is a full motion video adventure made as a project by some students in the Netherlands. The crime noir story takes place in a mega city in the future (the setting is similar to "Blade Runner").
As far as we know "Fate by Numbers" is the only freeware FMV adventure out there and it is quite impressive how far you can get with a small budget (all they had were 1500 Euros). Of course this is not the most challenging adventure of... (read more)
