Webgame Wednesday: Recursion

Recursion is a nifty platformer, neatly haunted by the ghosts of Super Mario Bros. Your ship has crashed on a mysterious world, and you must escape by collecting stars and raising flags. (OK, I don't get the connection either.) What makes this one stand out is its warped puzzles and clever art style--which transforms 8-bit gaming into a near-needlepoint experience.
