Ark 22

Ark 22 is an Action/Adventure Role Playing Game in the vein of the classic Zelda games of yesteryear.  The story begins aboard a spaceship that suddenly finds itself wrecked on the surface of a frozen world.  The circumstances surrounding the crash are vague and it’s up to your character to find some of the lost survivors, and uncover the mysteries of this strange icy planet.  This game met with positive fanfare back in 2006 when it debuted, and for good reason.  It’s a charming, well polished piece of work with plenty to appreciate.  As with the more familiar Zelda games you’ll have to fight your way through challenging dungeons, face Boss Monsters in epic combat, and solve myriad puzzles all the while working your way through an engaging story.  Also to be found are side-quests, mini-games and plenty of exploration.  The graphics are quite impressive and definitely stay true to the genre they pay homage to.  While the control might not be quite as tight as one would expect that may just as well be a limitation of the Game Maker software.  In either case I recommend playing with a gamepad for the full effect.  Free RPGs of this caliber don’t come around often so if you’re in the mood for one I can highly recommend this little gem.
