TORIBASH - Strategic turn based fighting
Brilliant game concept; a turn-based ragdoll-physics beat-em-up, respringing the muscles and joints of your fighter for each quarter-second of the battle.

Armadillo Run
Elegant hybrid of Pontifex and The Incredible Machine. A good measure of a physics engine's realism is how *funny* it is, and this one's good.

Laser Squad Nemesis
Got around to giving this a go, and enjoyed it a lot - a nicely pared-down version of the X-Com games, dropping all the fiddly micromanagement to make something a lot more fast-paced and elegant. Good to see a hotseat game in the 21st century, too.

Resources for purely sound-based games. "Our rule of thumb is that an audio game has got to be playable without visuals, that the playability is as easy or hard as with graphics and that at least 95% of the (visual) game consists in sound as well."
