    Terraria, although I've never played it myself.
    Thanks to Kwes for the signature!

    I'd describe Terraria as Minecraft meets Castlevania. The old Castlevania. It's a good little indie game.

    • Cave Story+
    • Commander Keen
    • Dungeons of Dredmor
    • Terraria

    Retro Shooters
    • Aquaria
    • A.R.E.S.
    • The Binding of Isaac
    • GundeadliGne
    • Gundemonium Recollection
    • Hitogata Happa
    • Jamestown
    • Serious Sam DoubleD

    First Person Shoters
    • The Ultimate Doom
    • Doom II
    • Final Doom
    • Heretic
    • HeXen
    • Wolfenstein 3D

    Platformers
