Today, the folks behind the immensely popular Humble Bundle announced a few new games for the third edition of its Android package deal. Four new titles have been added for previous or future customers who pay more than the average (which, as of this writing, is sitting at $6.14). The new entries are Anomaly: Warzone Earth, EDGE, Osmos, and the crowd-favorite World of Goo, which, together, cost about $15 on the Play Store.

These four new arrivals come in addition to the previous set of games—including Spirits, which we reviewed earlier—bringing the total number of indie titles you can get to nine, for a mere six bucks and some change. Given that only one of these nine games is cheaper than $3 on the Play Store normally, and the total for all of them would be $33 (without including the licenses you'll also get to play them on the desktop), it's a pretty difficult deal to pass up. There are seven days left before this bundle expires, so hurry up!

    Awesome!!!!

  • Himmat Singh

    Though I can't complain much, I am a lil disappointed all the bonus games are actually from the HIB for Android 1.

    • Matthew Fry

      Agreed. I was like, "4 new games!!! Oh.... :("

      I see your point, but for someone who missed out on the 1st Android Humble Bundle this is a chance to grab those games again at the insane deal that Humble Bundle provides.

      Though you still get Spirits for paying above the average even if you do own the 1st Android Humble Bundle. :-)

    The new Play Store doesn't allow redeeming of codes for content so getting updates is still a PITA. correct?

      The Humble Bundle Android app will notify you of updates. Not as convenient as the Play store, of course, but not a PITA.

  • Erik Patrón Coral

    I have a question, when i buy this bundle, the games are recognized as buyed in the play store so i can download updates?

    • Sorian

      If I remember correctly, no It is not recognized in the play store. BUT, there is a humble bundle app that will keep track of purchases and updates for the games (again if I remember correctly)

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

        That's correct, the Humble Bundle App allows you to grab updates though you need an account to do most things.

        • mgamerz

          You're going to likely get steam codes for all those games if you still own the first bundle. So you can give your friend a copy on steam!

          • Erik Patrón Coral

            Yes but i'm much more interested in play some of the games in my phone because 2 of them are just for tablets :(.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

            Well 3 if include the EDGE Extended Edition which is designed for 8" tablets or larger.

          • Erik Patrón Coral

            But they are just offering EDGE and in the humble blundle says that just Uplink and SpaceChem require a tablet.
            "Please note that Uplink and SpaceChem require tablets if you’re playing the Android version."

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

            That shouldn't be right. You should get Uplink, SpaceChem, Fieldrunners and Space Trip Beat for paying anything lower than the average price, so you should have those by default.

            Then if you paid the average amount or more you get those 4 games + Spirits, Osmos, Anomaly, World of Goo and EDGE from the first bundle.

            Note that Uplink, EDGE (Extended) and SpaceChem require either tablet or phablet devices with a 5" screen or larger.

            I would definitely contact the Humble Bundle team if you are stuck.

          • Erik Patrón Coral

            hummmm... that's weird this is part of the current description:
            "We’re bringing you a mountain of entertainment for your Android devices. Pay-what-you-want to get BIT.TRIP BEAT, Fieldrunners, SpaceChem, and Uplink (tablets only). And if you beat the average price, you also get Spirits, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, EDGE, Osmos, and World of Goo! Please note that Uplink and SpaceChem require tablets if you’re playing the Android version."

            And when i check EDGEs compatibility list i can see my device. I live in México, maybe they are not offering EDGE Extended here?

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

            Now that I have played the games, I can tell you that EDGE Extended is just like the Classic version but with different levels. They should either both work or none at all.

            Osmos (tablet version because there is a mobile version too), SpaceChem and Uplink will not work unless your device has a large enough screen.

        • Erik Patrón Coral

          Hi!, do you know how to get that app?, looks like it's not in the play store, i want to test it before thinking about buying this one. I had buyed the humble indie bundle V and i liked it very much because of Steam and linux access but i'm not sure about this one.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

            You can, create an account on Humble Bundle and register your e-mail address that you used to get the Humble Bundle V. Then you will have your own Humble Bundle account, within the account you created you will see all the Humble Bundles you purchased. Select "Android" from the Platform menu and click the link either on your computer or Android device.

      • Erik Patrón Coral

        Thanks! but i can't see that app in the play store, i have an Xperia neo with Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 CM 9.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

          No it isn't there. Create an account on the official Humble Bundle website with the e-mail address you used and you can download it from there. At least that's what I did from my phone's browser.

          The website isn't obtimised for mobile viewing though, something on their to-do list?

          PS: I have CM9 4.0.4 too and everything works fine!

          • Erik Patrón Coral

            Thank you!, and you are right, logging in with my phone was a really annoying experience. It didnt give me any option to download the app but its a new account, i dont have registered apps yet. The last bundle i bought was the indie bundle V but without creating an account i only registered my email to receive news but looks like no account was created in my last buy.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

            Just glad I helped, have fun playing these games. :-)

    • http://www.facebook.com/aatzeni2 Andrea Atzeni

      Same question here!

  • Erik Patrón Coral

    I have a question, when i buy this bundle, the games are recognized as buyed in the play store so i can download updates?, sorry for my bad english and if this question appears more than once, i'm having problems with disqus.

  • Cheeseball

    The return of the Humble Bundle for Android 1. :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

    So if I have already bought the bundle back when I bought all 5 original games for this bundle, I now get another 5 free? Damn! That's awesome!

    Needless to say I sent a casual request to the team for another Android bundle and I am very happy playing Fieldrunners. Spirits & Bit Trip Beat I haven't really got into yet and Uplink & SpaceChem require a larger screen than my Galaxy S II can provide (7 and 5 inches respectively).

    These other games are bonus!
