Best of Indie Games: From Mari0 to Mushroom Kingdom Fusion

Sister site IndieGames.com looks at the top PC Flash/downloadable indie titles released over the past week, including a fan-made title that features a portal gun, and an experiment in 'minimalist beauty and color.'
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' (Stabyourself, freeware) "Stabyourself's 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) "In Sminis, 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) "Hubris 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-style gameplay." 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."
