Gearbox recently released a stripped down retro version of Borderlands 2 you can play in your browser. You can choose from one of the 4 new Borderlands 2 characters and fight hordes of enemies in an area 2d shooter. From the handful of games I played, I chose Salvador and made it to level 16. There is a fair amount of gun types to choose from but I seemed to prefer the machine guns to the others. Shotguns seemed to be a bit underpowered as the intial blast is strong but they took too long to reload.

Its a fun game to try out in anticipation for Borderlands 2 launch this September 18thand you can play it here:

If you strip the "/demake.php" off the end of that domain, it looks like there are a few more things that will become available as time marches onward to the Borderlands 2 launch. Should be interesting. More as it develops.

Wow, sorry about fading out. I made it 2 levels and then got distracted. I have played it a couple of times since, same thing. I must not be a real gamer =)
