Free Game Friday: A Gun that Serves as a Jetpack and an Art Game with an Awesome Soundtrack

Go to the Moon and hang out with a mammoth in this week’s roundup of free games.

All of this weeks free games create some surprisingly gorgeous scenes using fairly simple graphics. From stunning composition to well used filters to just plain great use of art and style, all of these games are very pretty and very, very cheap.

Super Big Gun Adventure

Super Big Gun Adventure is a gentlemanly adventure about a stick figure with a very posh hat and a super big gun. It's so big, in fact, that you can use it not just to kill your foes but to fly around levels like youre wielding your own personal jetpack. Its as much fun as it sounds.

Personal Trip to the Moon

Personal Trip to the Moon is not quite as much fun as it sounds, but its a smart and sweet little art game about a very personal trip to the moon. Its also a gorgeous game (especially given its low-rez flash graphics), and its short (youll probably play through it in a half hour or less) story hides a lot of depth.

We Were You

We Were You is part of Soundplay, an experiment by gaming site Kill Screen and the music blog Pitchfork that brings together musicians and game designers to make short games based on some of todays most interesting bands. While a few Soundplay experiments have been revealed already, We Were You is my favorite thus far. A young girl goes on an adventure with a Wooly Mammoth to the music of M83 and it all hangs together surprisingly well.
