I think it's great they are making new DC games all the time but why do so many of them have to be shooters? They are just so similar, time to find a different genre in my opinion.

Totally agree, whilst i'm a shoot-em-up fan myself, the vast majority of homebrew releases seem to be in this genre.

Names escape me at monent, but i know there's been a puzzle game and a top down (?) Rally Racing game and Gunlord (was it ?) was in the Turrican ilk, but i'd love to see one have a crack at a homebrew aracde/adventure game or survival horror or platformer.

Still, it is great to see the DG getting continued support from the homebrew community.

Rush Rush was what i was thinking of, but the puzzler was Wind and water (something i have too much of :-) ), so delighted to herar there's been another homebrew puzzle game.Was it any good?.

It's a solid Lumines-inspired effort. Here's a fair review of it,
