Alien Swarm is a game and Source SDK release from a group of talented designers at Valve who were hired from the Mod community. Available free of charge, the game thrusts players into an epic bug hunt featuring a unique blend of co-op play and squad-level tactics. With your friends, form a squad of four distinct IAF Marine classes. – Steam
I started playing Alien Swarm a few months ago when I went through a phase of loving F2P games. But unlike any other free-to-play game, Alien Swarm brings out the most unique style of action than before. The goal is to complete the chosen stage, fighting of extra-terrestrial beasts aching for the taste of human blood. Throughout the game, you can upgrade and unlock guns and equipment. The best part about this, is that you can play online. With friends or strangers. The fun is never-ending as the stages get progressively harder. If you have ever played Call of Duty’s arcade-styled minigame, Dead Ops Arcade, then Alien Swarm will be familiar. Alien Swarm is a must get for any kind of person. Don’t like the intensity and pressure of going online? You can also practice offline with bots. No more looking like a fool in front of your friends! When you start a game, you will need to pick a role. Each role will carry out its own certain tasks. For example; if you choose to be an engineer, your task is to open doors and disable equipment to protect your fellow players. If you are a medic, you will heal other players. Head over to the Steam store now and get Alien Swarm for free!
“Surgeon Simulator 2013 is a darkly humorous over-the-top operation sim game where players become Nigel Burke, a would-be surgeon taking life into his own shaky hands, performing life-saving surgical maneuvers on passive patients.” – Steam
Surgeon Simulator 2013 is a brand-new way of surgeon games. As well as being incredibly hard to control, mind-boggling and skill testing- it can also be a hilarious experience. The surgeon’s hands are near enough impossible to operate, and it makes a simple task such as picking up a scalpel like an ancient Chinese mind game. Despite all of this, it is a great game and a definite buy if you love puzzle games. The levels get harder and harder as you complete more and eventually you can perform a brain transplant in space! Or even a alien autopsy! There are hidden levels such as Meet the Medic, a classic short film from Team Fortress 2. Surgeon Simulator 2013 provides hours upon hours of entertainment, and all in all is one of the best indie games on the Steam market.
Garry’s Mod is a physics sandbox. Unlike regular games there aren’t any predefined aims or goals. We give you the tools and leave you to play. You spawn objects and weld them together to create your own contraptions – whether that’s a car, a rocket, a catapult or something that doesn’t have a name yet – that’s up to you. –Steam
To me, Garry’s Mod is more than a game. You think of anything at all, and you can do it in this game. Because of it’s extraordinary community on the Steam Workshop, you can accomplish just about anything in Garry’s Mod. Play piano, fly the T.A.R.D.I.S, fight zombies, build a rocket to the moon, have a death-match with your friends, and even role-play! The game is actually a modification for the well-known source engine, Half-Life, and therefore you can implement pretty much any other Half-Life modification or source game into Garry’s Mod! For example, you can spawn in the heavy from Team Fortress 2 and move it’s rag-doll about! Also, you can load any maps from any other source game, and various Garry’s Mod game-modes support Counter-Strike maps (e.g. Prop Hunt). As well as sandbox-ing with your friends, and driving around your Lamborghini, you can also play a wide variety of game-modes. A good well-known game-mode is DarkRP, a role-playing mode in which the goal is to collect as much money as you can and just interact with the community. Depending on what server you are on, you can buy money printers, cars, guns, and you can also get a various number of jobs such as a hitman, the mayor and even a gun dealer! But I am getting side-tracked from Garry’s Mod itself- all in all, Garry’s Mod is a action packed, fun filled, highly modifiable, and just a great game for any one. At only £6.99, you cannot go wrong!
