[Every week, IndieGames.com: The Weblog co-editor Tim W. will be summing up some of the top free-to-download and commercial indie games from the last seven days 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 edition include an abstract shooter with a message, a bookmark-activated toy for your web browser, a Minesweeper

Game Pick: 'The Legend of the Golden Robot'
(Rob Donkin, browser)
"The Legend of the Golden Robot
is a Minesweeper
RPG hybrid, mixing the classic tile hunting game with turn-based battling, leveling up and item hoarding. You can buy items at the shope, hear rumours of special treasures at the inn, then head out to dig up the land and find some valuables."
Game Pick: 'TransmoverNG'
(Polygon Gmen, browser)
"Transmover New Generation
