Polarium is an abstract puzzler with a simple premise. You must guide a glass cube along a set route of black and white tiles, whilst polarising the background to protect the cube from being destroyed. This intense and rapid gameplay mechanic, revels in the same class as classic SHMUP Ikaruga, but has the pacing of slower, cerebral games such as Portal.

Everyone raise your glasses in celebration of four fantastically free games for everyone to enjoy this Friday! Without further ado here are your games!

Up first is [Unnamed] for Windows which asks you a simple question. Don't you think the games now are all the same? Don't you think people have no imagination to develop games? Well, this is something different. Next on the list for celebrating is Amazing Paulsonothon for Windows, Mac and Linux. May I present you a mysterious and great man of very curious talent. From grand crown city of Tyan comes a lowly guardsman who has risen above the rank and file. Taller than the mightiest tower, stronger than the greatest dragon and smarter than your average pheasant. I present you, The Amazing Paulsonothon, axe thrower ordinare!

If Axes are not your thing how about a little memory? Stack Overload for Windows is a logical game based on the idea "find a pair" like other "match up" and "memory" games, but with some interesting additions. The player plays the role of one of the rival programs that try to overflow the stack of the other program and cause the crash. Become a program! Crash the others! From flat cubes to 3D cubes Polarium for Windows and Mac is your final Freedom release! Polarium is an abstract puzzler with a simple premise. You must guide a glass cube along a set route of black and white tiles, whilst polarising the background to protect the cube from being destroyed.

Check back next week for more fantastic free indie releases!

Don't get an Ouya. Please don't get an Ouya. You're paying so much money for SmartPhone level hardware in a tiny box. You're ripping yourself off.
