[Every week, IndieGames.com: The Weblog co-editor Tim W. will be summing up some of the top free-to-download and commercial indie games from the last seven days 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 delights in this edition include a Canabalt-style action runner with neon-coloured visuals, an iOS game that allows players to have just one life, a puzzle game featuring rabbits, bunnies and puppies with a craving for chocolate, plus a student game that's all about mixing animals in a blender.

Here's the highlights from the last seven days:

Game Pick: 'Stalwart' (Jonathan Whiting, browser)
"Stalwart is a browser game that you should very much play. It's got a knight, neon colours, flaming balls of fire, destructive beams of light from the sky, and the most wonderful music."

Game Pick: 'One Single Life' (FreshTone Games, freeware)
"One Single Life is an iOS game that you can download for free, but once you're dead, that's it. It's a little like an extremely short version of Canabalt, where each level presents a gap between two buildings that you need to jump over."

Game Pick: 'Chocolate Castle' (Lexaloffle Games, browser)
"The concept of Chocolate Castle is pretty clever: each level presents one to four types of animals that can only eat chocolate pieces matching the colour of their skin tone, and they'll disappear immediately from the board after having their fill regardless of whether there are other chocolate pieces still undevoured or not. Chocolate pieces of the same color have to be connected if you want an animal to eat them all in one go."

Game Pick: 'Hydra Castle Labyrinth' (Buster, freeware)
"Hydra Castle Labyrinth is a new freeware 2D platformer created by the accomplished Japanese developer E. Hashimoto (Akuji the Demon, Guardian of Paradise). You play as a knight who has to recover a crown hidden somewhere inside the Hydra's castle, defeating a variety of dangerous enemies while collecting any treasure, items and special weapons that you can find along the way."

Game Pick: 'Blendimals' (Exploding Cow, freeware)
"The premise of Blendimals is pretty simple. In order to reach your goal, you will have to casually fling helpless animals into a giant blender, hit high, and make use of the chimera that emerges from the whirlwind of parts. It sounds silly and really, it is."
