GameTap Thursday: Agent 47 causes an Emergency

Filed under: , ,

As Agent 47's first adventure enters into free games rotation on GameTap this week, maybe it's good you learn how to handle what's left in his wake with the new subscriber game Emergency 3. Emergency is an RTS where you'll handle various scenarios using several emergency response units. The real sleeper standout this week is Penumbra Overture: Episode One. The "episode one" bit will indicate to you that this game is shorter than it should be, but this first-person action adventure actually ends up delivering in unexpected ways. The new subscriber games this week are:
  • Clockwork Knight (Saturn) - A side-scrolling platformer about a toy solider saving a clockwork fairy princess. If you didn't have a Sega Saturn -- and really not too many people did -- it might be worth checking out this quirky little-known title from when side-scrollers were en vogue.
  • Emergency 3 (PC) - If you can get past the interface and some irritating AI, there's actually an interesting game here. A variety of scenarios and real-world aspect make it different than the RTS' we're used to.
  • Penumbra Overture: Episode One (PC) - It's supposed to be a three episode game, but we're not holding our breath. Definitely check this one out, maybe if enough people play it GameTap will fund the other two episodes.
After the break we have GameTap's updated list of free games. There are 27 new titles which have entered rotation and beginning this week we are bolding the new ones for easier reference. Ghosts N' Goblins (not to be confused with Ghouls N' Ghosts which is subscriber only) and the classic Final Fight are definitely worth a free spin.
