The time has come to turn out your pockets and support developers and charity at the same time. In return you get some great Android games on the cheap. The Humble Mobile Bundle 6 is now available with six games split into the customary two tiers.

If you've never purchased a Humble Bundle before, here's the skinny. You get to pay whatever you want and that gets you access to the first tier of games—in this case Elliss Infinity, Duet Premium, and Combo Crew Special Edition. If you pay more than the average price (as determined at the time of purchase) you unlock the second tier which in this bundle is Threes!, Mines of Mars, and Joe Dever's Lone Wolf (full game). You can choose how your money is split between the Humble Bundle folks, developers, and charity (the EFF and Child's Play).

This is a good mix of games, most of which haven't appeared in past Humble Bundles. Threes! in particular is hugely popular ($1.99 in Google Play). The special edition of Combo Crew is presumably offered without in-app purchases like in the Google Play variant. The best deal might be Joe Dever's Lone Wolf, which is $4.99 for the first act with IAPs for the next one. This version gives you access to the full game. More games will be added soon as well.

The Humble Mobile Bundle 6 runs for two weeks, through Tuesday August 19 at 11AM. The longer you wait, the higher the average price will creep, so you'll do yourself a favor by jumping on it early. Of course, you can always pay more. It is for a good cause after all. Don't forget to take advantage of the Humble Bundle Android app, which makes it much easier to manage all your purchased games.

    Personally, I really enjoy Threes!.

    Joe Dever's Lone Wolf is freaking awesome, already had a copy from the Playstore but got the bundle as well for the other good titles (Combo Crew, and Threes). Don't skip this one and there are still more games to be added =]

  • Himmat Singh

    Somewhat underwhelming. I've played Combo Crew and it's an alright game. The rest don't interest me so much.

  • Badouken

    Eliss Infinity is worth this bundle alone... Solid controls and tons of challenge! The other games look really good as well!

  • sweenish

    I wonder how committed these devs will be to updating the HB apps. I quit these because too few devs failed to keep the bundle versions up to date.

    Until they either incorporate the Play Store somehow or require Play Store update parity (as in within 24 hours), these bundles don't get my money.

    But do play Threes! It's great.

    • Damian

      Google should give developers the ability to create promo codes which you could use to pay less or get the app / game for free. Is there any downside for this feature?

      • Kenneth

        Google's cut of the profits.

      • realitysconcierge

        Steam certainly doesn't have a problem doing it

    • Funem

      The only app I have from Humble bundle that I don't remember having an update was the original Plants vs Zombies. It seems well behind the current one. The others seem up to date to me. The apps are linked "in some way" to the play store as IAP's are handled by the play store though the game updates are not.

    This is a damn good deal

  • Michael

    It's "Combo Crew - Special Edition" meaning no Street Fighter characters.a

  • Funem

    Combo crew still has over £10 of take it or leave it IAP's of which unlocking the Capcom fighters for 69p each, or about £2.50 for all the existing and possible future ones is an optional IAP, I thought this was disappointing as most other Humble bundle games I have, dropped the IAP's as special editions, like they did with Lone Wolf. I have all the others on there that I wanted from the play store already but I buy the Humble bundles when they are out as the cause is good.

    Threes is a great little game

    • Himmat Singh

      What happens when you click them? In the past, all instances of IAPs in Humble versions were either wholly removed or the store was made "free".

      • Funem

        Nah you have to purchase them. It is listed on the humble site that stuff isn't unlocked for free.

        • Himmat Singh

          So how do you pay for the IAPs then?

          • Funem

            Via the Google Play Payment system,

  • Izzy

    imma let you finish but eliss infinity is one of the best games of all time

  • Kieng62

    Gimme that code Thank!
