Best Of Indie Games: Defending the City

[Every week, The Weblog editor Tim W. rounds 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 goodies in this edition include a pizza delivery game, a platformer created with the Game Maker engine, two tower defense games, and a new release from the developer of the popular art game I Wish I Were the Moon.

Game Pick: 'Pizza City' (Pixeljam Games, browser)
"In Pizza City, you play the role of a delivery boy who has to help Uncle Tony distribute tasty pizzas to his customers around all parts of the town. This requires going back and forth between Tony's pizza place and the destination of each delivery, with occasional stops at the gas station to fill up the fuel tank of your car."

Game Pick: 'CannoDash' (Ida, browser)
"You control a robot with the ability to build turrets in CannoDash, a tower defense game where enemies appear from each side of the screen in turn and chase you down relentlessly. Tanks stop in their tracks when they hit any of your turrets, but paper planes will follow you around without the need to fly around ground units."

Game Pick: 'Mars TD' (Taro, browser)
"A puzzle strategy game created by Taro, developer of the unfairly difficult platformer Super Ear Man Bros. Just like other tower defense games, the objective here is to build turrets around the map and protect your base from the incoming alien invasion."

Game Pick: 'Crazy Over Goo' (Banov, freeware)
"Originally titled Yellow Goo Love, Crazy Over Goo is a mouse-controlled platformer which comes with fifty playable levels. You control an elastic ball who is after the love of his life, both looking suspiciously like a gaming royalty couple from the early 80's."

Game Pick: 'Today I Die' (Daniel Benmergui, browser)
"Daniel Benmergui's latest is a puzzle game created in a style that fans of his works should already be familiar with. Similar to I Wish I were the Moon, the adventure is a short one and shouldn't take longer than a couple of minutes to play from start to end. The game also features multiple endings to discover."
