The Humble Bundle is a famous indie game package, where you can decide how much you want to pay for it and who should get your money.
It is one of the fairest deals for gamers and the games are always high quality indie games, they have a knack for choosing the best of the best that the scene has to offer and making an irresistible bundle out of it. I own all the previous humble bundles and was very happy to see that their newest bundle is for Android!
If you buy the Humble Android bundle, you get all the games for multiple plattforms. You get the Android version and the PC, Mac and Linux version of the game and you can always download them from the website and if you pay more than a dollar, you even get a steam key to unlock them on your Steam account.
Also there are multiple ways to pay, it supports Google Checkout (you’ll have to pay a minimum of 30 cents, becuase using Checkout costs them money) and you can pay with PayPal. You can even pay through Amazon payments, so there is no excuse that you are unable to pay for these games.
So now that we have established that you are a bad gamer if you don’t buy this bundle, let me tell you what is inside.
Anomaly Warzone Earth
Did I ever mention that I don’t like tower defense games? Tower defense is putting the one part in real time strategy games that I hate in the spotlight – micro managing your defense. I like to rush my opponents and don’t like to fiddle with defensive strategies, so I never understood why people like this genre so much.
Anomaly Warzone Earth puts the spotlight of the game on the part in RTS that I love, rushing the enemy. You plan your attack route and then you support your troops with specials like smoke screens or healing, which you collect on the battlefield. It’s a lot of fun and one of the better looking games that I have ever seen on the Nexus one, it really performs well on 1Ghz devices.
The second game is Edge, one of my favorite box-based puzzle games. You tilt a box and try to navigate it to the exit, sounds simple but the minimalistic graphic style and a heavy amount of polish make it a great title. The game came out for iPhone and was then banned from the app store because of it’s name. Several years and lawyer fees later, the word Edge can now be used in all games on the App store and in the Android market and we get to play this nice title.
The third game is called Osmos and Android gamers gave this great title a warm welcome on our plattform (it has over 50k downloads in the official market already).
The goal of the game is to grow, to do that you consume other life forms, that are smaller than you. There isn’t much more to say about this game, you just have to experience it. The music in combination with the gameplay creates a unique atmosphere that you have to experience for yourself.
If you pay more than the average, you also get the popular “bridge builder” World of Goo. World of Goo is a little bit older nowadays, but it is still great to have this game on Android, because it works great with touchscreen devices. The goal is to build constructs that connect to a open pipe, if you reach it with enough goo balls intact, you get to the next level. If you haven’t played it yet, you should pay more than the average and get it, because you’ll get a lot of mileage out of it. For example it’s one of the first games that I installed on my Windows tablet and the creators even made a Meego version.
