For me, this would have to be the best news of the year. Being a HUGE fan of shmups, and Cave in particular, I was ecstatic when I heard that the innovative shmup "Deathsmiles" would be getting a european release.

With that out the way, it...

This one's called Cottage of Doom. It's a very simple survival horror game. With zombies. You control your character with the mouse. Left-click is move, left-click twice to sprint, and ...
Times are tough. The economy's stuffed. People don't have as much money as they used to. So who could decline a free offer? Especially an offer for a free game?
