[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 earlier this week - including a puzzle game inspired by Portal
, two arena shooters and a platformer by O-MEGA, the developer of Every Extend.
Game Pick: 'Epsilon'
"A challenging Flash-based puzzler based around solving tasks using various fictional technologies such as wormhole manipulation, gravity shift, and even time reversals."
Game Pick: 'Robokill'
(Rock Solid Arcade, browser)
"Robokill is a top-down shooter where players can configure their robots using weapons and upgrades acquired from defeated enemies, crates or even friendly shopkeepers. The demo for this commercial release allows players to sample four missions in total, which equates to more than one third of the entire game."
Game Pick: 'inno vation'
"A black and white platformer created by the developer of Every Extend. The game has been out for a while now but was only recently translated for western audiences. In the game, players are given control of a wild boar on a search for treasure and rare items."
Game Pick: 'Paperblast'
(Jesse Venbrux, freeware)
"The second arena shooter to be featured this week, Paperblast
is a new game from the developer of the slightly avant Execution
and the Karoshi
series. Fight enemies made out of paper, score points and avoid the bullets."
