[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 independent PC Flash/downloadable titles released over this last week. The goodies in this latest version include three cool browser games, a freeware adventure game and an action game with distinctively unique puzzles - and all games mentioned in this edition are guaranteed to give your brain cells a thorough workout. Game Pick: Nanobots (Erin Robinson, freeware) "A very neat looking freeware graphic adventure, from a female developer and contributor to Dave Gilbert's Blackwell series. The game was also scripted by Resonance developer Vince Wesselmann." Game Pick: 'Boat House' (GUMP, browser) "A new escape the room game by the developer of Rental House and Guest House. The story pretty much starts off from where your last adventure ended, and once again you'll be presented with a number of cryptic puzzles in a traditionally fiendish adventure game style." Game Pick: 'Bingo Area' (Yoshio Ishii, browser) "A small web game by the developer of Cursor 10 and the Hoshi Saga series, in which players will be required to select one or more cities from the map of Japan to match the level quota. Sounds complicated, but it only takes a couple of clicks to figure out the pattern." Game Pick: 'Bowja the Ninja 2' (Robin Vencel, browser) "Bowja the Ninja 2 (in Bigman's Compound) is the sequel to the similarly titled puzzle game from Pencilkids. Your mission objective is basically to infiltrate the enemy's hideout, disable their satellite system and find a way to escape, armed with only a bow and a quiver of arrows." Game Pick: Virtual Silence (Virtanen, freeware) "An action game where the player takes control of a young boy named Jason, who has to sit through a series of experimental tests in a virtual world, under the watchful eyes of his caring mother and an unnamed doctor."
