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 fan-made title that features a portal gun, a charming character-based puzzler in the vein of Lemmings
, an experiment in 'minimalist beauty and color,' plus a debut title from App Store newcomer Sylphe Labs.
Here's some recent highlights from IndieGames.com:
Game Pick: 'Mari0'
is a relatively faithful little recreation of Nintendo's much-loved franchise, but there is one twist. In this fan-made title, Mari0
has a portal gun."
Game Pick: 'Sminis'
(Angry Rock Studio, commercial indie)
, players control the movement of tiny robots as they navigate various danger-filled obstacle courses. The catch? Players can only control whether the Sminis start or stop moving along a predefined path."
Game Pick: 'Hubris'
(Andrew Yoder, freeware)
is Andrew Yoder's experiment in 'minimalist beauty and color'. Created over the span of a winter break, Hubris
is a short game and one that is heavy on the atmosphere and light on game play."
Game Pick: 'Caveman Craig 2'
(Parabox Games, commercial indie)
"The sequel to Caveman Craig
, Caveman Craig 2 :The Tribes of Boggdrop
will have you playing as the titular prehistoric gentleman. Here in this strategy survival game, you're going to have to pelt things with rocks."
Game Pick: 'Mushroom Kingdom Fusion'
(Fusion Team, freeware)
"Easily one of the bigger fan games around, Mushroom Kingdom Fusion
will feature a large roster of familiar characters and a variety of iconic worlds, all of which have been modified for compatibility with Mario
Game Pick: 'Hang in... Go!'
(Sylphe Labs, commercial indie)
"Hang in... Go!
mixes solid puzzle-platforming with mechanics that play to the strengths of iOS hardware. It stars a green blob that is able to attach itself to nearby surfaces, and can stretch, swing, and slingshot itself to reach faraway platforms."
