Underplayed games & hidden gems

Seeing another thread like this pop up again I'm wanting from a moderator to change the title to simply - "List of Underplayed Games & Hidden Gems" and I will continue to keep this thread updated.

Also maybe a *sticky as I continue to update with more info along with everything I already have.

And I will continue to add people's suggestions, right now the games listed with descriptions can be found on page 1, 4 and will continue to add on 5.

There is a list of games only at the bottom of page 3, but a brief Description I think helps out alot more.

Anyways, I'm going to add a few new games on page 5...

You meant the thread where Gameloft games are listed as "hidden gems"?

I guess these are hidden gems?

Eve of Impact
OmegaPixel
Necrorun
Monkey Ninja
Spooky Hoofs (was surprised to find out not a lot have heard of this game)
Totem Runner (this is pretty new, but i dont think it got the attention it deserves)
Captain Antarctica (this came out before Super Mole Escape, and they are very similar, and both are pretty fun. This didnt get the attention it deserves either)

Dragon odyssey frane

I dont think those 3 are "hidden" in the TA community. Especially Epichearts. Everyday since it was released, it finds its way to the first page of the games thread.

I don't think there are any gameloft games, besides it's also for the general public so technically alot of games could be considered " hidden gems", although the majority of the games mentioned are actual "hidden gems"

Changed the title and added a few reserve posts for you to collate the information in one place rather than throughout the thread.

About the sticky - I think there are getting a bit too many stickied threads already. We'll see how it goes.

Frotz - text based adventure game engine. It's bundled with some free adventure games but you can also play old Infocom classics

The Quest - not really unknown but it's an old classic 3D RPG many people probably missed it. It's free roaming sort of like a 2D version of Elder Scrolls.

Real Ski Jump HD - Ski Jump game made by the creator of Sonic

The little crane that Could - sort of a 3D crane simulator where you have to drive a crane and perform various tasks with real physics.

Feed me Oil - not exactly unknown but I think it's one of the best liquid puzzle games. I like it better than where's my water which gets a lot more attention.

Windosil - I dont know how to describe it but it's just an amazingly interesting game. Maybe more like a toy than a game.

Vector Racing - vector graphics racing game very simple but kind of fun

Black shades - FPS sniper game
