The Humble Bundle folks are at it again – offering up excellent games and supporting charity at the same time. This time it's the Humble Mobile Bundle 3, and that means six – yes six – Android games are on sale, and there are two big debuts. You get to name your own price with the Humble Bundle, but you have to pay above the average to unlock two of them.

Ridiculous Fishing and Swordigo are brand new arrivals on Android, and they both made a big splash on iOS. Ridiculous Fishing lives up to its name – you snag a bunch of fish with your line, then fling them upward and blast them with a shotgun. Yes, that does sound ridiculous. Swordigo is a bit more conventional, but still highly regarded on iOS. This one is a side-scrolling hack-and-slash adventure game. The rest of the games from this bundle are already on Android, but it's a strong group. There's Kingdom Rush, Epoch, rymdkapsel, and SpellTower. We've got the trailers for these embedded down at the bottom.

You can pay any amount and get all the games except Ridiculous Fishing and Kingdom Rush. Pay more than the average to get those, plus you'll secure access to additional games that will be announced next week. The longer you wait, the higher the average tends to creep, so you might as well get going if you want to save money. Although, this is charity – don't be stingy.

    Swordigo was awesome on iOS, glad it came to Android finally.

  • spacekobra

    Ow... my spare time.

  • xnifex

    Wow this kicked up quick. Normally they wait a week between the main humble bundles.

    • Himmat Singh

      Not the case for the past few months. Its more often than not been one after the other.

  • JWolf_PDX

    Curse(Bless) you Humble Bundle!

  • MacMan156

    Worse than a steam sale :P

  • sweenish

    I've grown tired of only a fraction of the devs supporting humble purchases. I'll wait for ridiculous fishing to hit the play store and pick it up from there. I either already own or don't care for the others.

    • Matthew Fry

      Sword And Sworcery, World of Goo, and Anomaly seem to be the only ones that keep stuff up to date.

      • Thomas’

        Yeah, but when I buy a game, I don't expect any more updates (that is, for content. Bug fixes should be there as you mentioned them). A game is simply "finished" at some point and that's what I pay for.

        If someone provides a content update - great - but as I said, that's not expected and more targeted towards brand loyalty.

        • Himmat Singh

          Indeed. Besides, Humble usually features premium games (i.e. those without IAPs and freemium elements), and these are more often than not made as a full experience from the get go. In the case of the freemium/paymium games, they get many updates cause they want people to continue spending.

        Awesome! I tried searching when the bundle launched, but that must have been too early.

  • DirkBelig

    Kicked in a buck and already tried SpellTower which is pretty cool. Gave 26 cents to Child's Play and NOTHING to the pathetic losers at EFF. I've given to them in the past, but no longer as they've become a left-wing political organization. Shameful.

    • h4rr4r

      Are you insane?
      The EFF is a pro rights organization full stop. They oppose patent trolls and DRM. If those are right wing things then the right wing can go to hell.

      • DirkBelig

        Are you a blind liberal? Sure sound like it.

        EFF used to be a good thing and I've given to them through my HB purchases in the past, but their disgraceful "Stop Watching Us" video with a bunch of Hollywood one-percenters and Communist-lovers like Oliver Stone* howling about NSA spying without mentioning Obama (who they support) AND having endless video footage of RICHARD NIXON(?!?)** signaled that they may be opposed to spying but not so much as to call out the Obama Regime for doing it.

        Is spying bad or not? Who's been in charge of the spy machine for the past five years? (Hint: Not Nixon.) Why make a 3-1/2 minute video that doesn't mention the man in charge at all other than partisan allegiance?

        Be honest: If Dubya was President when Snowden's revelations broke, do you think this video would be anything by Stone and Cusack and Wesley Crusher screaming, "STOP SPYING ON US, BUSHITLER!!!!"?


        EFF can just beg for money elsewhere. I'll give mine to the sick kids instead.

        * The irony of Oliver Stone, who would suck the dick of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez daily if he could, complaining about government tyranny is a hoot.

        ** Most of the people in the video were children when Nixon was President, so why are the video clips exclusively of him? It's a smear meant to make ignorant idiots believe Richard Nixon is spying on them despite leaving office 39 years ago.


        • Matthew Fry

          Are you a troll posting sensationalist political views on an Android blog?

          • DirkBelig

            No, just explaining how EFF has sacrificed their charter to be propagandists. Only slaves would react to knowledge with fear and name-calling. Slaves should stick to iPhone.

          • David Spivey

            Hmm... The guy who says that "Only slaves would react ... with ... name-calling" calls other people names (pathetic, losers, slaves, propagandists to mention a few)... Way to drive home your point there, name-caller. I guess you should be the one to "stick to iPhone", then, based on your last statement.

        • h4rr4r

          This just looks like a cheap video using mostly stock footage.
          Not everything is left or right, you can drop the commie scare BS that stuff went out of fashion decades ago.

  • George Fayad

    Swordigo!!!!!! Played this a ton on iOS when i had a work-provided iphone. Gave it back when i quit and have been wanting to finish it!

    • Jason Bailey

      Yeah im in the same boat, I finished it about 70% before the mrs claimed my ipad as her own. Its taken its time to come to Android for sure. Nice Zelda avatar :-)

    • Mozaik

      and best part it was free one day on ios and downloaded it to complete.

  • Mike

    Which of these games are best suited for a phone vs a tablet? I know I can install them on both, but I'm just curious what others think is the best platform to appreciate the games the most.

    • Thomas’

      Each game is better on a 7" tablet than on a phone.

  • Funem

    Nice selection of games, different from previous bundles and a bargain to buy, with the feeling of giving to charity thrown in. The best part is there are more games being coming over from iOS to Android and their debut here is a good incentive to buy the bundle.

  • Matthew Fry

    You posted this before Humble Bundle emailed me. Speedy Gonzalez.

  • Sorian

    Hmm.... They took off Google checkout.

  • Thomas’

    I wonder if these are Play Game editions of the games.

    • Himmat Singh

      Haven't downloaded, but I don't see why they shouldn't have Play Games support. A few games in previous bundles had it.
