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 addictive little iOS title with humorous in-game lore, a microbiology-themed twin-stick shooter, a short point-and-click adventure game that you can play right now for free, plus the Mac port of Zach Gage's popular word puzzler SpellTower.

Here's some recent highlights from

Game Pick: 'Outsmart!' (stellarNull, browser)
"Outsmart! Is a fun little browser game that will have you playing as Anneite, a highly motivated young woman who is, unfortunately, engaged to a slacker of a fiance."

Game Pick: 'P-3 Biotic' (BatCat Games, commercial indie)
"P-3 Biotic charges players with protecting a nucleus at the center of a petri dish by constructing minefields and using power-ups to fend off invasive bacteria."

Game Pick: 'Pocket Minions' (SiuYiu, commercial indie)
"Pocket Minions is a brilliant blend of Little Computer People and Settlers, with a bit of Tiny Tower and some fresh new ideas thrown-in for good measure."

Game Pick: 'SpellTower' (Zach Gage, commercial indie)
"Zach Gage's popular word puzzler SpellTower is now available in the Mac App Store, arriving as one of the first games to support the recently launched Mountain Lion Mac OS upgrade."

Game Pick: 'Robo Quest' (Glauzer and AdM244, freeware)
"Some might say Robo Quest is too cute for its own good, but if you are willing to overlook said cuteness you'll be rewarded with a great little game you can play for free."

Game Pick: 'Worlds' (Curious Planet, commercial indie)
"In this action-adventure stealth game, players have missions (with multiple solutions) to maintain the balance between different worlds, while avoiding alerting people of the existence of other worlds."
