Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow
From The Team that brought you the excellent Loonyland II: Winter Woods (See 'Top 5 Indie RPGs') comes this frenetic cartoon-style action/ adventure in which you play gormless slaphead Bouapha, a man trapped in the eerie, enemy infested town of Sleepless Hollow.
Just like its stablemate, Sleepless Hollow focuses on action over sedate exploration, with each new location teeming with bad things intent on making you dead. You can fend off the endless waves of foes with hammers that are scattered throughout the game, and more often than not you'll have to defend yourself while solving some tricky puzzles. This makes for copious amounts of squealing as you're chased by hordes of zany enemies, and lashings of fist hammering as said hordes of enemies surround you and give you a drubbing (especially if you opt for the tragically fiddly mouse control option).
However, the excellent snippets of irreverent humour soon win you round, and have you succumbing to the temptation of just one more go 'til your fingers are nowt but worn, bloody stumps.
