Ocular Ink is hands down one of the most fun and unique freeware games I've played in the past few years. Just reading the official storyline will already give you a clue as to how wacky this game is: "... In a strange and twisted land where evil dismembered body parts roam the countryside, you play the role of a young paintbrush-wielding eyeball that is determined to free his home town from the fearsome clutches of the evil eye-pirate known far and wide as Patches Deadlights."
Yes, you really *are* a "paintbrush-wielding eyeball" in this game. Basically you roll around the 3D landscape, fighting baddies throwing things at them. You throw things by "drawing" a line from the object (say, a rock or a bomb) to the enemy, by pressing down the left mouse button, dragging it across the screen, and releasing the button. The right mouse button is used to move around (click on the spot you want to roll to), and interact with other eyeballs (for instance, to talk to them or purchase upgrades) and other objects. You need ink in order to draw, and this ink is also your "life force" - it's game over if you run out. Although it is mostly a very furious freeform shooter, some strategies are essential in Ocular Ink as well. For example, you have to be careful not to put yourself in the trajectory of your drawing, or you will be hurt by your own shot. Certain places have few rocks with which to throw, so you have to 'lure' enemies to blast a few large rocks into smaller pieces you can then use.
As you progress in the story, you will learn new drawing skills such as creating bombs (by filling an area quickly with your brush) or shooting laser (by drawing a circle around an enemy). The game's unique gameplay is enhanced by a neat plot, cool enemy bosses (the cowboy eyeball is my favorite), and varied landscapes. Sometimes you also get help in the form of friendly eyeballs who join in the fray.
