IndieGames.com The Weblog co-editor Tim W. sums up some of the top free-to-download and commercial indie games from the last seven days, with Score Rush making one of five picks:


Best Of Indie Games

"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 reworked Ludum Dare competition entry for mobile devices, a side-scrolling runner which originated from a Sony ad, a simple but cute puzzler about a boy who had fallen off the moon, and a co-op twin-stick shooter for up to four players on the same couch."

Here's the full list:

  • 'Lame Castle' (Be-Rad Entertainment, browser)
  • 'Fallen From the Moon' (Gamystar, browser)
  • 'Mind Wall' (Seth Robinson, commercial indie)
  • 'Score Rush' (Xona Games, commercial indie)
  • 'Starfare' (Freemotion Studios, freeware)
