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?
Well this game's free, and it's a good one. Black Shades (developed by Wolfire Games) is a first-person shooter, bodyguard style. The object of the game, is to defend the V.I.P (guy dressed in white) for an allocated amount of time. In that time hordes of assassin's will attempt to kill your V.I.P with guns or knives.
While the graphics may be simple, the core gameplay is great and the responsive controls make you feel like it's your fault the V.I.P died, not the game's. You can download this game for a few measly megs from here.
Big thumbs up from me!
