[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 two freeware adventure games, a physics-based puzzle game, a dimension-shifting platformer and a new monthly game from this year's IGF Grand Prize winner. Game Pick: 'Totem Destroyer' (Gabriel Ochsenhofer, freeware) "A physics-based puzzle game where players must attempt to remove a certain number of blocks in each stage to progress. Plays a lot like Jesse Venbrux's Mubbly Tower, but in reverse." Game Pick: 'Dirty Split' (Dreamagination, freeware) "A point and click adventure game with gorgeous artwork, a catchy soundtrack, professional voice acting and decent writing all woven together to create one of the more impressive freeware releases this year. Take control of a private investigator named Baxter as you attempt to solve a criminal case, which will require trips between three different cities in order to gather new clues and evidence." Game Pick: 'Shift 3' (Antony Lavelle, browser) "A sequel to the series of platformers based on the idea of shifting dimensions, featuring more twisted puzzles and achievements to unlock in this episode. The story starts off with a feeling of familiarity but quickly turns into an open-ended adventure with multiple paths to explore." Game Pick: 'Jimmy's Lost His Toilet Paper' (Petri Purho, freeware) "Another awesome monthly game under the Kloonigames banner, made in under seven days. You play as Jimmy who embarks on an epic adventure to get his roll of toilet paper back, perhaps finding love or even the meaning to his life along the way." Game Pick: 'Beauties and Beasts' (MashPotato, freeware) "A short adventure game created by Marina Siu-Chong for a monthly AGS One Room, One Week competition. The quest basically involves stealing items from unsuspecting contestants who are preparing themselves for a local beauty pageant event."
