[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 fun 2D platformer about collecting boxes, a cute one-button RPG, a 3D racing game with cel-shaded graphics, and a new release from Gamma Bros. creators Pixeljam Games. Here's the highlights from the last seven days: Game Pick: 'Dear Agent' (cactus, freeware) "Dear Agent is a fiddly but ultimately rewarding platformer created by Jonatan during the Blekinge Tekniska Hogskola Game Jam. Over several levels, your mission is to kill all the terrorists and destroy all their equipment, before escaping through the exit." Game Pick: 'GLORG' (Martin Jonasson, browser) "Developed for the GAMMA IV one-button game event held at this year's Game Developers Conference, GLORG chooses the counter-intuitive premise of boiling down the gameplay of a dungeon crawler action RPG to single-button clicking. Players can navigate between scenarios familiar to classic roguelikes with the simple interface of a stationary mouse." Game Pick: 'Super Crate Box' (Vlambeer, freeware) "Vlambeer's first release is mucho good funo, because you get to fire lots of different guns and it's all very crazy. Points aren't based on how many kills you make - it's based how many crates you collect. However, each crate changes the weapon you're currently wielding, and there are a huge variety of slicers and dicers to play with." Game Pick: 'Corporate Climber' (Pixeljam Games, browser) "In Corporate Climber you play as a working man who is trying to get to the top of the corporate ladder, having started his first job without even a piece of clothing to his name. To climb to the top of the building you would have to reach the elevator that takes you to the next level, and every new floor presents a different challenge or another puzzle for the player to solve." Game Pick: 'Cloud 9' (Rockin' Moses, freeware) "Cloud 9 is a gorgeous F-Zero like racer with futuristic vehicles and ballistic speeds. It's still early in development and has one track right now, but it's still worth taking for a spin just for the visuals. There's a cel-shaded theme going on with both the racers and the environment, and it all looks very pretty indeed."
