[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 neat browser games, a loose remake of an old ZX Spectrum classic with new multiplayer features, and a horizontal shooter with decidedly smart graphics..

Game Pick: 'Cubes' (X-0ut, freeware)
"A multiplayer-only game inspired by Nenad Jalsovec's Counterclockwise, which in turn was a remake of an old ZX Spectrum release. Essentially Tron in 3D, this version supports up to eight players simultaneously and contains four maps to choose from in total."

Game Pick: 'Zero Point' (Alaric, freeware)
"An impressive-looking horizontal shooter developed with the Game Maker engine. The current build consists of only one short level, but nonetheless shmup fans will be eagerly anticipating for more once they're through with the first boss."

Game Pick: 'Powder Game ver4.9' (DAN-BALL, browser)
"ha55ii's physics web toy was recently updated with an option to add playable stickman characters to the screen - expect to see plenty of user-created obstacle courses popping up on the site soon."

Game Pick: 'SEEK ver.0' (Eyezmaze, browser)
"A new action game by ON, who is also the developer of the well-received Grow series. Players must find matching tiles to score points and progress through increasingly difficult levels and challenges."

Game Pick: Life is a Race (cactus, freeware)
"Life is a Race! is a one button art game created by cactus for a new game competition - described in the comments as 'like a satirical version of Passage'."
