[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 browser game inspired by old Game Boy titles, a survival roguelike game, a top-down space shooter with both single and multiplayer modes, and a game where you'd get only one chance to save the human race. Here's the highlights from the last seven days: Game Pick: 'Cat Astro Phi' (PhotonStorm, browser) "Cat Astro Phi is a space exploration shooter in the style of an old Game Boy title. The protagonist keeps losing his cat Jonesy on alien planets, and must constantly grab keycards, pick up energy cells and rescue the feline." Game Pick: 'Rogue Survivor' (Roguedjack, freeware) "Rogue Survivor is a survival roguelike sandbox game with plenty of depth to explore. You are put in the role of an average person in the middle of a zombie outbreak, and must stay alive for as long as possible. Apart from finding weapons and barricading yourself into a safe area, you'll need to make sure you have a good supply of food and perhaps some friends to help out." Game Pick: 'One Chance' (Awkward Silence Games, browser) "One Chance follows the story of scientist John Pilgrim who, along with his team, manages to find a cure for cancer. However, it quickly becomes apparent that the 'cure' kills all human cells, and everyone on Earth begins to die. You're given seven days to find a cure and save the human race, but here's the twist - you've only got one chance." Game Pick: 'Steel Storm' (Kot-in-Action Creative Artel, freeware) "Steel Storm is a top-down space shooter with both a single-player campaign and a full multiplayer deathmatch mode. Through a series of missions, you zip around shooting down enemy ships and turrets, and grabbing every collectible you can find." Game Pick: 'Battle Dex' (Bandera Games, freeware) "Battle Dex is an online turn-based strategy game that features some card-play as a way of turning the battlefield in your favour. Before each battle you can choose a deck of cards with special abilities, and deploy them during battle. As you win battles, you'll receive more cards and be able to build better decks."
