Video games use to be a lot simpler than they are today. Mario-like 2D side-scrolling games are a thing of the past. And that’s sad, because they were so much fun.
Thankfully, independent game makers are keeping 2D games alive. And you can play a lot of their work for free.
Take Bonesaw: The Game for example. It was made by a proud Clarkson University graduate. It features the school’s hockey team, The Golden Knights. You must save the team from an evil referee. It’s silly, but fun.
It’s also a fairly long game. You’ll get to play over 30 levels. Not bad for a free game. You’ll download an archived file. And you’ll need a program like 7-Zip to decompress it.
