The Humble people are on a roll. In addition to the Humble Bundle for PC and Android 11 announced just yesterday, they've launched a new Android-only bundle for cash-strapped gamers to enjoy. (You don't have to be cash-strapped, I suppose you might just be cheap and altruistic.) Bundle 8 includes seven games at the moment, with two being "above the average price" purchases and a third unlocking at a reasonable $5.
Tentacle Wars is a puzzle-strategy game in which you take control of an alien's immune system to fight off an invading disease. It's $2 in the Play Store. Doodle God and Doodle Devil, both from developer JoyBits, are impressive takes on the "combine stuff to make other stuff" style of puzzle game.
The newest Humble Bundle is out and it's a big one. Humble Bundle for PC and Android 11 includes a whopping ten games right now, with more coming soon. All the titles are available on PC/Mac/Linux and Android with no DRM. There are also Steam keys for most platforms. All you have to do is decide how much to pay.
The Anomaly games gained attention not only because they are staggeringly gorgeous, but because the gameplay was a clever twist on the age-old tower defense genre. Past games had you playing as the creeps fighting through the towers, but Anomaly Defenders is more traditional—you're in control of the towers, but it's the humans you're fighting, not aliens.

Running, jumping, shooting—these are the sorts of things you'd expect in a mobile game. Coding? Eh, less so. That's what makes Hacked so interesting. This game, created by Joaquim Verges (Falcon Pro dev) and Fabien Devos, is built around a programming language (H) and a mobile friendly code editor (the Hackpad). You play the game by creating and running simple programs, so a little coding experience is needed to get the most out of it.
So many apps to buy and so few dollars with which to do it. We can help you stretch your app budget at least a little farther with some sales. More for less? You can't argue with that. Literally, you are not able to construct a cogent argument against this proposition.
Google is set to institute a new policy in the Play Store, and it has some developers up in arms. A message in the developer console (seen below) has appeared asking developers to add a physical address to their account profile. For those offering paid apps and in-app purchases, this is mandatory as of September 30th. Failing to do so could result in Mountain View pulling the apps.
Do you want to become part of an unstoppable military machine with giant lasers and shiny white armor? Or are justice and freedom worth fighting for until the bitter end? You get to choose in Star Wars: Commander for Android. Joining the Empire grants access to powerful weapons, but the Rebel Alliance has clever tactics on its side. Whatever you end up doing, this game will still Force-choke your wallet.
At first glance, Boogey Boy seems to be another endless runner, probably overflowing with in-app purchases. While it kind of plays like an endless runner, there are levels, and you won't find a single IAP anywhere. Now if only you could outrun that boogey man chasing you.
