[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 - including new games from Flashbang Studios, cactus, the new development team Umlautgames - and one of the highlights from the latest DigiPen student projects made available for download.
Game Pick: 'Jetpack Brontosaurus'
(Flashbang Studios, browser)
"A browser game featuring dinosaurs and jetpacks. Currently in alpha testing stage, Jetpack Brontosaurus is a follow-up to the popular Off-Road Velociraptor Safari
and Flashbang Studios' third Unity game release."
Game Pick: 'Precision'
"A new week, a new game from cactus. Precision is an action game which involves timing your jumps, collecting green bottles and descending ladders. Expect to spend anything from a minute to half an hour on completing all seven levels."
Game Pick: 'Hollow Point'
"One of the many Digipen student projects
made available for download this week, Hollow Point
is a top-down shooter which plays like a combination of Gauntlet
and Smash TV
. The game sports decent 3D graphics, well-balanced difficulty, a wide selection of weapons and even comes bundled with a level editor."
Game Pick: '6 Differences'
"A sequel to the Case's spot the difference game 5 Differences
, where pictures come alive with all sorts of animation or movement. The objective is to find half a dozen discrepancies in each pair of photos."
Game Pick: 'Thrustburst'
"A remake of an old arcade game which involves navigating treacherous caverns by activating your thrusters in short spurts. A good debut effort from the new development team Umlautgames."
