For people looking to gorge themselves on ad-free mobile gaming, offerings don't get much better than those we get from Humble Bundle. Every couple of weeks the organization hands out at least six games that you can tote around in your phone or tablet. All you have to do is pick a price that's over a dollar to walk away with at least three games. Beating the average will get you three more, with others set to appear one week from now.
The Humble Mobile Bundle Eye Candy, as this week's collection is called, offers a set of visually pleasing titles. This bundle includes Deep Under the Sky, Botanicula, and Haunt the House: Terrortown for those who pay over a dollar but less than the average.
A week has passed since the Humble Mobile Bundle 10 made its presence known, and if you've been snatching up these pay-what-you-want deals for a while now, then you know what this means. That's right, more games. In addition to the six previously revealed titles, we also see the likes of iPollute, Sorcery, and The Tiny Bang Story.
iPollute is a puzzle game made distinctive by its stop motion clay animation.
The Tiny Bang Story is an adorable point-and-click adventure title with hand-drawn graphics in which you explore a steampunk world that has been devastated by an asteroid.
The original Sorcery joins Sorcery 2, which was among the six games already included in the bundle.
Noodlecake is one of those reliably solid publishers that tends to show up a lot in Android Police's game roundups. Like Crescent Moon before them, they've now got their own Humble Android Bundle showcasing some of their games at a great price. You can pay what you want for up to nine Noodlecake games at the moment, including three that are brand new to Android, and more are sure to come at some point.
The first of three debut games is Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork. This quirky title is essentially a Galaga-style shooter, but it's overlaid with a fine veneer of Sunday funnies humor.
Crescent Moon is a solid publisher of Android games, offering titles from a variety of developers across nearly every genre. Today it's the latest company to partner with Humble, offering an impressive collection of Android games in a DRM-free format with a "pay what you want" structure. Four of the games included in today's bundle can't be had on the Play Store, at least at the moment. Right now you can pay $8 to get all ten titles, and more are on the way.
The new Android games in this bundle are Space Chicks, 2-Bit Cowboy, The Deer God, and Exiles: Far Colony.
Humble Mobile Bundle 9 may now be just the fix for residents of America's mountainous Northwest who venture out to the warmer, southeastern portions of the country and suddenly find themselves homesick. The current bundle has been updated with two games that kind of take players on a virtual trip to the Rockies: So Long, Oregon (explicitly) and Mountain (not so much). These two titles will go out to anyone who pays over the average, including those who already have.
So Long, Oregon is a side-scrolling game with what the Humble Bundle refers to as "historically accurate terrain collision rendering." The graphics are nearly basic (okay, bad) enough to make the original Oregon Trail look like a treat.
We've hit that point in the life of every Humble Bundle where a new set of games jump in to flesh out the original selection. This time around, we're seeing the likes of Epoch, Mikey Hooks, and Zombie Gunship join the seven games that made up the initial batch. People who paid over the average at the time of purchase will get these new titles automatically, and those who do so going forward will get them just as well.
Humble Mobile Bundle 8 first contained Doodle God, Doodle Devil, Epoch 2, Little Big Adventure, Tentacle Wars, Tower Madness 2, and Wave Wave. It's easy to see where Epoch fits on this list, as it provides background for the sequel received by people who paid over $5.
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.
Just like traditional radio, listening to internet radio without paying money requires putting up with ads. Well, usually. Radical.fm tosses this entire concept out the window by letting users stream music for free. If listeners would like to donate to the company to help out, it would be nice, but such generosity is not required. There's a catch, though. The Android app, despite just launching, already looks like it hasn't received an update in three years.
Radical.fm touts access to over 25 million songs, which is no small number considering the "pay-what-you-can" asking price. The app functions similarly to Pandora, prompting users to create stations and adjusting to suit their tastes based on likes and dislikes.
It's that time again. The Humble Bundle folks are back with another mobile bundle. This time we're looking at six games: Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Bag It!, Carcassonne, The Cave, The Room Two, and R-Type II. Three of these games are available for whatever you feel like paying, but you need to beat the average in order to get all six along with the next wave of games that's sure to arrive roughly a week from now.
The average currently sits at just over $4, which makes beating it an absolute steal. Yes, all of these bundles are great values, but this time in particular you're standing to gain at least three games that go for $5 each.
It's that time again. Another bundle of games has hit the web courtesy of the Humble Bundle folks, and as always, they're charging the sweet price of whatever-you-feel-like-paying. There are six games up for grabs this time around, with two requiring you to pay over the average.
Regardless how much you pay, the Humble Bundle will let you walk out with a digital version of the popular board game Catan ($3.99), the jetski racer Riptide GP2 ($2.99), the parkour simulator Vector ($0.99), and that game where you shoot zombies from the comfort of an AC-130 gunship - Zombie Gunship ($0.99).
