If you like your computer games retro and if you absolutely must be able to shoot at the enemy, you’ll love bullets. This retro shooter stands out from the rest because you only have ten bullets at your disposal, which isn’t a lot when you’re tasked with taking down as many invading space vehicles as you possibly can. That means you’ll need to create some pretty impressive chain reactions if you’re going to succeed.

Another one for the nostalgia lovers amongst you, Abobo’s Big Adventure is a NES-inspired 8-bit game in which you play a man trying to rescue his son.
