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 edition include a new browser pick from Dino Run designers Pixeljam, a clever puzzle game by IGF 2012 Excellence in Design finalist increpare, a 2D platformer with a laid-back approach, plus an iOS release that pays tribute to Cave's excellent lineup of arcade cabinet shooters.
Here's some recent highlights from IndieGames.com:
Game Pick: 'Captain Commander' (Pixeljam, browser)
"Pixeljam's retro side-scroller has you assume the role of the titular Captain Commander who must make his way through an alien planet and rescue captured soldiers from an abundance of uncomfortable probing."
Game Pick: 'RE: Get To Schol On Time' (Spiceworx, commercial indie)
"RE: Get To Schol On Time includes a handful of wildly disparate levels, each of which features a strange objective. The game's opening level, for instance, asks players to sketch a portrait while being ridiculed by caricatures of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jack Nicholson."
Game Pick: 'Promises' (Increpare, browser)
"Increpare's Promises is a simple-looking, single-room puzzle game that will ask you to do little except think hard and ponder the value of your word."
