[Every week, IndieGames.com: The Weblog editor Tim W. will be summing up some of the top free-to-download and commercial indie games from the last seven days, as well as any notable features on his sister 'state of indie' weblog.] This week on 'Best Of Indie Games', we take a look at some of the top titles released earlier this week - two browser games, a competition entry, and a little something from the thriving doujin community. Also in this edition, we present a link to a larger summary of notable commercial indie games released in the past few days. Game Pick: 'Everyday Shooter' (Queasy Games, commercial indie) "This multiple award-winning arena shooter has finally arrived on the Windows platform, distributed by the indie-friendly folks at Steam for a very affordable price." Game Pick: 'Dino Run' (Pixeljam Games, browser) "In Pixeljam's latest game, players are transported back in time just moments before a giant asteroid crash lands and wipe out the entire dinosaur population on Earth. As a velociraptor seeking sanctuary from the impending doom, your objective is to run towards the end of each level as fast as you can, preferably before the wall of doom envelops you." Game Pick: 'Mubbly Tower' (Jesse Venbrux and Ferry Spaans, freeware) "A Tower Defense game built around the concept of making your structure as tall as you possibly can to please the king's increasing demands. Mubbly Tower also comes with an online high score table, four unlockable modes and a bonus platformer game." Game Pick: 'Bowja the Ninja on Factory Island' (Robin Vencel, browser) "Bowja the Ninja (on Factory Island) is a point and click adventure game in the style of The Visitor and Hapland. Your mission involves infiltrating the enemy's island and destroy their secret weapon, achieved by solving one or two simple puzzles in each screen to progress. A sequel is currently in the works." Game Pick: 'Bootfighter Windom XP SP-2' (Y. Kamada, freeware) "Common sights in Bootfighter Windom XP SP-2: wanton destruction, giant armed mechs and powerful weapons demolishing city buildings with one shot." Game Pick: 'Frayed Knights' (Rampant Games, commercial indie - demo available) "A preview of Jay Barnson's upcoming Dungeon Master-style indie RPG. Other notable commercial indie releases this week include Grubby Games' The Amazing Brain Train, Puppygames' Droid Assault and a new game from the developers of Jets'n'Guns."
