Typically, about a week after a new Humble Bundle launches, the indie game distributor adds a few more titles to the mix as a reward for those who contribute above the average price. This time around, Another World, Funky Smugglers, and Raiden Legacy are the ones topping off the pack if you've pitched in $5.53 (at time of this writing) or higher.
With the new additions, this brings the total number of titles up to nine, and at five and a half bucks, you're looking at around $0.62 per game. Not a bad deal. Six days remain on the clock in case you need to wait for your tax refund to come in or something.
Twenty years ago you had to pump quarters into an arcade machine to enjoy the punishing shooter known as Raiden. The game was so successful that multiple sequels followed. Now you can play four Raiden arcade games on your mobile device for a one-time fee. This is a retro gaming experience that tries to preserve the feel of the original game, and still make it work on a touch screen. So is Raiden still awesome? Let's see.
See that thing there? Shoot it. That other thing over there? Shoot that, too. That third whatsit over there? That one is a power up.
If you're old enough to remember a time when arcades blanketed the landscape, you probably also remember Raiden. This top-down scrolling shooter debuted in 1990 and attracted legions of fans. Now more than 20 years after it showed up in an arcade cabinet, you can play Raiden and its three sequels on your Android device courtesy of DotEmu.
This single download contains the original Raiden, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet. All these games follow the tried-and-true formula of shooting absolutely everything that appears on the screen. There are 15 ships to unlock and take into battle, each with unique weapons and abilities.
