The Blackwell Legacy
This game sounds a bit like a cross between the TV series The Ghost Whisperer and Medium. A medium named Rosangela Blackwell and her spirit guide Joey Mallone go around helping tormented ghosts and solve mysteries with a supernatural twist. The Blackwell Legacy is the start of a miniseries of games that star this unlikely team. Their first case revolves around student suicides at a local university.
Rabbi Russell Stone struggles financially to keep his New York synagogue open. As things start to turn for the worse, he learns that a member of his congregation has passed away, leaving Rabbi Stone enough money to save his struggling synagogue. The Rabbi feels that something doesn't feel right and decides to investigate. The Shivah features three different endings, rabbinical conversation methods, and a very different style of combat.
Puzznic, which was first released to arcades by Taito in 1989, combined Tetris and Sokoban. The objective is to move matching puzzle pieces together to make them disappear.
This is essentially a dating game, in which your objective is to find a date before your school's Summer Session ends. To make yourself more appealing, you can upgrade your character by doing things such as lifting weights and buying new clothes. At the same time, you have to keep up with your homework and not fail classes. Summer Session has five possible endings, increasing replayability.
College Romance: Rise of the Little Brother
This is another dating game in which you play as a college freshman. You meet a number of girls with varying personalities and dreams. Whichever girl you eventually end up with leads to a different ending, some of which are good and some bad.
This is a fantasy sim in which you choose to be a human, elf, or demon. Each character has a different attribute that will affect your game, so choose wisely. You can pick a job that helps improve some of your skills, which can give you the chance to unlock more advanced jobs. At some point you'll want to choose a romantic partner. There are six potential ones, two for each of the three races (human/elf/demon). Spirited Heart has 20 regular endings plus six special marriage endings.
This is essentially a Breakout clone set to a horror movie theme. You can play through the 50 levels of varying difficulty in the single player mode, or play against a friend in 2-player mode. You can even edit your own levels with the level editor. There are three level types: the normal game, monsters level (ghosts appear to hinder your progress), and timed level.
