The Humble Sega Mobile Bundle kicked things off last week with a collection of six games the publisher has released into the Play Store over the years. For any price, buyers could get ChuChu Rocket, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, and Virtua Tennis Challenge. Those who beat the average were rewarded with Crazy Taxi, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, and Episode 2 of Sonic 4. Now, right on schedule, three additional apps have made their way into the bundle.

You know what collectible card battle games are missing? Math. Well, that's not strictly true: your standard Magic clone includes a lot of math, but it usually doesn't go much further than counting. The new Android game Calculords is a mixture of the standard card battle formula, lane-based strategy, and some grade school arithmetic. It made quite a splash on iOS a few months ago, and it looks like the Android translation is just about perfect.
Update 8/21/14: Following Amazon's lead, the same $0.99 sale is now live on the Play Store.
The Amazon Appstore seems to be flooding with deals lately, giving us more and more reasons to use it (or at least consider installing it next to the Play Store). After the massive $100 apps and games that went free ten days ago, today's deals affect all of Cartoon Network's games - well, all but one - and discount them to $0.99.
All it takes is a single button and some concentration to help a bizarre type of jellyfish perpetuate its species in Deep Under the Sky. In return, you get to explore an amazing technicolor world on the dark side of Venus. This is the newest game from the developer of the similarly trippy Incredipede, but it's a much more zen experience.
You have an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the latest gaming craze to sweep the nation—Swing Copters. It's like Flappy Bird, but vertical. Yeah, it goes up instead of to the right. Revolutionary. This is the second game from Dong Nguyen of .GEARS Studios, and will presumably be the first one he doesn't unpublish for mysterious reasons in a few months. It's free with ads, but the supposed in-app purchase to remove them doesn't seem to be present in the Android version.
Today, the CEO of Unity Technology David Helgason announced a collaboration with Intel to add x86 support to the company's wildly popular Unity 3D game engine. The news was presented during the keynote speech at the Unite 2014 game developers conference alongside announcements for upcoming support of Samsung's Smart TVs and Google's Android TV.
Helgason delivered the information pretty quickly, but it's not the kind of thing that requires a long introduction.
Big changes are happening over at Humble Bundle that could mean a lot more games for you and more money for charity. It's only been a few weeks since the most recent Humble Mobile Bundle launched, but there are going to be many more going forward. The Humble Bundle website is getting a special mobile section that will serve as home to a new Android bundle every two weeks, and it kicks off with the Sega bundle.
