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 the sequel to Megadev's House of Dead Ninjas, a soccer-themed tactical puzzle game, the free Flash version of Tom Sennett's Deepak Fights Robots, plus a flashy multiplayer bumper car game for both Windows and Xbox Live Indie Games.

Here's some recent highlights from

Game Pick: 'Super House of Dead Ninjas' (Megadev, browser)
"As Megadev's follow-up to last year's hit, Super House of Dead Ninjas is here with more than cosmetic upgrades to its time racing, head rolling, and action platforming."

Game Pick: 'A Tale of Colours' (SavePointJohny, freeware)
"A Tale of Colours is a cheerful and well-designed offering that successfully follows the traditional genre formula of exploration, platforming and evolving your in-game avatar in order to further explore and platform."

Game Pick: 'Deepak Fights Robots' (Tom Sennett, browser)
"Deepak Fights Robots is a single-screen arcade-style action game in the vein of Bubble Bobble. The game has a really satisfying flow that makes it difficult to put down, and the soundtrack is excellent throughout."

Game Pick: 'The Football Playbook' (The Football Playbook Team, commercial indie)
"The Football Playbook strips soccer down to its bare tactics, making the game playable and enjoyable with just using the mouse. Described as a 'digital collection of tactical puzzles,' each of the 42 levels is a snapshot of a football match."

Game Pick: 'Sticky Bump' (KeeWeed, commercial indie)
"In Sticky Bump, up to four players compete to gather as many traffic cones as possible in a single-screen arena while avoiding the enemy Bully cars."

Game Pick: 'Cubistry' (The Hohng Company, freeware)
"Similar in premise to the oft-ported computer game Shanghai, Cubistry presents players with a cube that must be dismantled by matching pairs of identical squares."
