[Every week, 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 delights in this latest version include a new release update from the prolific dessgeega, an isometric shooter by Sigma Team (of Alien Shooter fame), a life simulation game, an innovative tower defense game, and a Breakout remake by nekogames. Game Pick: 'Mighty Jill Off - Jill Off Harder Edition' (dessgeega, donateware) "Not an entirely new game, but an enhanced version updated with reworked tile graphics and a second tower to conquer -- although you will need to beat the first level in under twelve minutes to unlock this extra content." Game Pick: 'Theseus - Return of the Hero' (Sigma Team, freeware) "A game by Sigma Team that uses the updated Alien Shooter engine, recently released as freeware. This isometric action game features ten playable stages, in which some are actually rescue missions instead of the standard alien genocide fare." Game Pick: 'Kudos 2' (Positech Games, commercial indie - demo available) "A sequel to one of Cliff Harris' earlier commercial releases, which has been described by some parties as The Sims in 2D. There are plenty of improvements over the original, although the artwork by James McKelvie has to be the main draw of this life simulation game." Game Pick: 'Immortal Defense' (RPGCreations, commercial indie - demo available) "Rarely does a developer spends an entire year updating their first commercial venture instead of concentrating on the next release, and allowing players to access one-third of the full game in the demo seems illogical but the critical acclaim for this innovative tower defense game has paid off in spades. One review even went as far as proclaiming it a better game than Portal and Bioshock - a shocking revelation indeed." Game Pick: 'Nekogames Kuzushi' (Yoshio Ishii, freeware) "A Flash banner game created by the developer of Cursor*10 and the Hoshi Saga series. This Breakout remake turned sideways consists of a single area filled with blocks for the player to destroy, although the concept isn't exactly a new one -- Firestorm Productions released a similar freeware title called Poing PC some time back."
