Free Stuff Sundays: ‘FreeJack’, ‘Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch’

Take competitive parkour online, and engage in first-person combat with the Robot Masters with this week’s selections for Free Stuff Sundays.

FreeJack: Free Running:

FreeJack: Free Running is an interesting specimen- it’s a free-to-play parkour-racing title for PC. For a free MMO of sorts, FreeJack has a plethora of modes to offer; registered players can take part in 8-player “Versus” racing, “Item Mode” which brings power-ups into the frenzy, the no-nonsense “Speed” racing mode; players who are of a higher rank also have access to “Hell Mode”, a high-octane escape through a shattered city,plagued with the undead. Apart from the main racing modes, FreeJack includes several mini-games, including “Jack and the Beanstalk” where players race to the top of a beanstalk, and the drift-challenge “Manx FJ”.

FreeJack is available through the official site, but requires community-registration to play.

Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch:

Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch is an Indie title from developer Michael “Cutman Mike” Hill; creator of ZDoom and ZPortal. A unique and unexpected blend of the classic platformer with the “Blue Bomber” and old-school PC-shooters, 8-Bit Deathmatch is a fast-paced, FPS set within the worlds of the Mega Man “Classic” series; from 2D-sprites to original sound-effects, everything about Deathmatch bleeds with authentic nostalgia. Players can choose to play as several protagonists and Robot Masters alike from the original saga. While Deathmatch is the title mode, there’s an original Single Player campaign that takes players through classic stages re-imagined in 3D; other modes include “Deathmatch”, “Team Deathmatch”, “Capture the Flag”, “Duel”, and the one-hit-kill chaos of “Instagib”.

Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch can be downloaded via MEGA through Cutstuff.net.

While FreeJack: Free Running and Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch are both Windows-only, Deathmatch technically can be run on Mac; it’s tedious, but it can be played through WINE or any other virtual environment.
