[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 new release from GROW series designer EyeMaze, a pair of Ludum Dare 20 contest submissions, a one-button browser game about crushing people, plus a new iOS app from Popcap's new experimental division 4th and Battery.

Here's the highlights from the last seven days:

Game Pick: 'The I of It' (Gameshot, browser)
"The I of It is a deceptively simple puzzle platformer with a clever idea: you're the letter of an alphabet trying to find your significant other, who one day decided to run off without letting you know where it went. You can grow or shrink in size using the cursor keys, and occasionally you'll find buttons to press or bombs to avoid while on your search for your missing partner."

Game Pick: 'Unpleasant Horse' (4th and Battery, commercial indie)
"Unpleasant Horse is a score-based arcade game created by Popcap's new division 4th and Battery for iOS devices, where you play as the titular creature who has to fly around the sky stinking up clouds and killing ponies for points. You do this by landing on the back of an unsuspecting pony and dragging it down to the ground, where a sea of menacing saws await those who dare to approach them."

Game Pick: 'Appy 1000mg' (Sebastian Benard, browser)
"Appy 1000mg is an oddly-titled 2D exploration platformer created by Sebastian (developer of Time Pygmy) for submission to the recently-concluded Ludum Dare 20 contest. The story is about a protagonist who wakes up on the ledge of a mountain, unable to remember what has happened or how he got there."

Game Pick: 'Spike - A Love Story' (Mike Houser, browser)
"Spike - A Love Story is a one button game, requiring you press the space bar to slam down on top of your potential love - or crush your crush, you could say. He doesn't simply walk through, however, and you'll need to watch carefully and keep your wits about you, otherwise you'll end up getting fired."

Game Pick: 'Myrktorch' (Gustav Kilman, freeware)
"Myrktorch is a 2D platformer created by Gustav Kilman (developer of Streambolt) for the Ludum Dare 20 competition, where you play as a robed protagonist who can slay the undead with the illumination from his holy light. Killing ghosts will diminish the light bit by bit, but you can restore its glow just by standing next to a burning torch."

Game Pick: 'Grow Nano 4' (EyeMaze, browser)
"GROW Nano 4 is positively tiny in comparison to some of the other titles within the franchise. As always, the visual design is bright, quirky and filled with strange things that don't really have connection with each other - fanged monsters and cake aren't normally the best of friends, after all."
