[Every week, IndieGames.com: The Weblog co-editor Tim W. will be summing up some of the top free-to-download and commercial indie games from the last seven days on his sister 'state of indie' weblog.
This week on 'Best Of Indie Games', we take a look at some of the top independent PC Flash/downloadable titles released over this last week.
The goodies in this edition include a casual trading game with historical elements, a zombie survival game set inside a well-stocked building, an iOS game from Castle Crashers
developer The Behemoth, and an educational tower defense game that teaches about climate changes.
Here's the highlights from the last seven days:
Game Pick: 'High Tea'
(Wellcome Collection, browser)
is a casual trading game where you play as a smuggler trying to meet Britain's demands for a rare commodity during the early 19th century: tea. There is an abundance of tea in China, but the only goods that the Chinese are interested in trading with is opium."
Game Pick: 'Survivor: The Living Dead'
(Radical Endeavors, freeware)
"Survivor: The Living Dead
is essentially the story of a curvaceous young woman named Amber Chaplin and the adversity she faces after her brother is eaten alive by a zombie. She finds herself making a last stand in a two-storey building filled with, for some reason, a fair number of random guns."
Game Pick: 'Super Soviet Missile Mastar'
(The Behemoth, freeware)
"Super Soviet Missile Mastar for the iDevices is a mini-game which originated from the console release of Alien Hominid HD
. Your objective here is basically to help guide a Soviet rocket towards a floating map of America flying high in the skies, all the while trying to avoid copters, planes and even birds that'll bring your missile down quicker than you can say Tetris
Game Pick: 'Cube Droid'
"Cube Droid Saves the Galaxy
is a block-pushing puzzle game that plays rather similarly to Sokoban
, but with a few new surprise additions like laser towers, cannons and roaming enemy droids best categorized as 'unfriendly'."
Game Pick: 'RIZK'
is a 2D tower defense-like game that requires you to nurture and safeguard an alien plant that serves as your only means of escaping to the next level. In order to accomplish this, you'll have to carefully budget a somewhat meagre stash of coins in order to create your strangely ameobic-like minions."
