Best Of Indie Games: Cut, Copy, Paste, Profit

Best Of Indie Games: Cut, Copy, Paste, Profit

[ The Weblog co-editor Tim W. rounds up the week's top indie games on his sister 'state of indie' weblog, highlighting the most interesting titles that have come to light in recent days.]

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 2D platformer with a clever copy and paste gimmick, a 2D action game where you attack enemies by commiting suicide, a one-button effort about the adventures of a fish with a human-like face, and an action RPG where the characters are depicted as circular dots.

Here's the highlights from the last seven days:

Game Pick: 'Jump, Copy, Paste' (Arvi Teikari, freeware)
"Jump, Copy, Paste is a 2D platformer in which you overcome obstacles by copy and pasting parts of a level to build new platforms or create a passage through a wall. Parts which are greyed out cannot be affected by your copy and paste ability, so players need to work around those areas as they collect all yellow pieces to unlock the exit door."

Game Pick: 'Siromaru' (Abaruzu, commercial indie - demo available)
"Shiromaru is a 2D action game in which you attack enemies by commiting suicide and causing a chain of explosions. The longer the chain reaction, the more extra life items appear for you to collect."

Game Pick: 'Tiny and Big' (Black Pants Studio, commercial indie - demo available)
"Tiny and Big tells the story of a thief who had stolen our hero's most valued possession - a pair of underpants. The game basically is about him trying to chase after Mr. Big who had escaped to the top of a tall mountain. Armed with a raygun and a grappling hook, you must cut pillars and solid rock to build yourself platforms to stand or jump on."

Game Pick: 'Fish Face' (Beau Blyth, freeware)
"Fish Face is a one-button arcade game with three levels to play, each taking roughly five to ten minutes to complete. Here you play as a fish that uses its buoyancy to move in and out of the water, avoiding walls or enemies that will hurt our aquatic friend on impact."

Game Pick: 'Dragondot' (Nathan McCoy, browser)
"Dragondot is an action RPG in which you play as a dragon that can only claw at its adversaries at first, but will gain new and improved abilities whenever it gains enough experience to level up."
