Best Of Indie Games: Rose, Camellia, Ziczac & Nameless
Best Of Indie Games: Rose, Camellia, Ziczac & Nameless

[Every week, IndieGames.com: The Weblog editor Tim W. will be summing 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 earlier this week - two sequels, a highly-rated tower defense game, one freeware puzzler and finally, a roguelike with no name.

Game Pick: 'GemCraft' (Game in a Bottle, browser)
"A neat tower defense game which has been getting rave reviews from fans of the genre, featuring plenty of skills and achievements to unlock in campaign mode. Expect to spend at least a couple of days to beat all challenges within."

Game Pick: 'Rose and Camellia 2' (Nigoro, browser)
"A sequel to one of Nigoro's more popular releases about female aristocrats dueling via face-slapping, made especially for visitors to the Shockwave web site. Rose and Camellia 2 is a hidden bonus which can only be unlocked by players who are good enough to beat the first game."

Game Pick: 'DayMare Town 2' (Pastel Games, browser)
"A new point and click adventure game from the developer of Submachine and the Covert Front series. Fans of Samorost 1 and 2 should not miss this, but do keep a walkthrough handy as some of the puzzles encountered during your journey can be rather difficult to figure out."

Game Pick: 'Nameless Roguelike' (Hexedian, browser)
"A roguelike game in which enemies are represented by alphabets, while items are shown as special symbols or quotation marks. Gather and use whatever equipment you can find, as the journey to retrieve a secret artifact will be wrought with danger at every turn of a corner."

Game Pick: 'Ziczac' (0rel, freeware)
"A simple scoring-based puzzler where players acquire points by making small squares with four tiles of the same colour, or attempt to create large loops for a special multiplier bonus. Comes with a functional online high score submission feature."
