Humble Bundle for Android 3

[youtube_sc url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBg-MYObmas"]

Hello guys! Last Wednesday, I saw on Twitter that a new Humble bundle is now live! This bundle contains 5 games available for Android and PC. The following games are:

  • Fieldrunners - Take your towers on the offensive against an endless sprawl of baddies in this tower defense classic. Your goal is to keep your opponents from crossing the battlefield and taking you down. Populate everything in between with deadly towers and create intricate mazes to incinerate, freeze, laser, and electrocute your way to victory.
  • BIT.TRIP BEAT - A charming, retro-inspired music rhythm game. Players must deflect an onslaught of projectiles, each successful deflection resulting in a musical sound. Link ‘em together to get a rhythm going! Every move is crucial, as letting anything through will threaten to disrupt the beat
  • SpaceChem - Players take on the role of a Reactor Engineer, designing complex reactors that transform raw atoms into the complex chemicals needed to survive sinister threats on the frontier colonies of space.  It’s a maddeningly addictive puzzle game, and with the help of the built in level editor, it’s ensured that you’ll have plenty of challenging atomic manipulation at your fingertips. -This version is designed for tablet so better try out the demo first.
  • Uplink - Break into computer systems and nab valuable, secret information as you take on the role of a hacker for-hire in Uplink. The hacking gameplay in Uplink is textbook cyberpunk, complete with cracking software, credits, and nasty megacorporations. It's like a puzzle-adventure with all the action taking place between bits and bytes in cyberspace. -This version is designed for tablet so better try out the demo first.

If you buy this bundle more than the average price, you will also get this:

  • Spirits - In this beautiful puzzle-platformer, autumn has arrived and you must help the spirits of fallen leaves find their way home. With only indirect control at your fingertips, you must choose a few good spirits to build stairs, change wind flow, and act as guides for the rest of the spirits, making decisions that may ultimately sacrifice the few to save the many. This really feels like Lemmings, I love that game! -me
People may wonder why Humble Bundle make indie bundles for Android. I say why not? It's great! These games deserve more exposure! Also included are the soundtracks for all the games on this bundle!  I really hope there will be more indie bundle like this in the future so we can have more games on our Android devices.

 

Indie Royale: Gone Fishin' Bundle

[youtube_sc url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XzDPizRSWs"]

Hello guys! Sorry for the late news for this. Indie Royale: The Gone Fishin' Bundle has been available since Sunday and consists of 7 very interesting games. The bundle includes:

  • SOL: Exodus - Suit up and take on the role of the Lieutenant Commander, ace fighter pilot and 2nd in command of the UCS Atlas, as you search for a new home, battle a mysterious enemy, and rescue humanity from a fiery end.
  • All Zombies Must Die! - The spiritual successor to Burn Zombie Burn!, AZMD! builds on the classic twin-stick shooter formula with a smattering of role-playing features. Level up characters, complete side quests and collect items to craft deadly new weapons. There’s no shortage of options in how you choose to dispose of the undead, but the brain-chompers aren’t going to take it lying down. The shuffling cadavers come in varying shapes and sizes, and are affected by four environmental modifiers; fire, radiation, sonic and shock. Use your weapons and the environment carefully, and you might just make it out in one piece.
  • Cubemen - Play a purely defense game in various modes on a sweet selection of levels, or go into Skirmish mode and play a new type of TD game against either the computer or another human opponent. That’s right.. Two way REAL-TIME TD against the computer or a real person!
  • SQUIDS - A unique mix of action strategy and RPG: build your team of heroes for epic turn-based battles against corrupted crabs and shrimps! Steev, Vahine and the rest of the Squids are in danger! An infectious black ooze is corrupting their world. Only a few heroes can fight back and save their lush underwater kingdoms! Recruit a small army of stretchy Squids and lead them into turn-based battles against the dark hordes.
  • Plataformance: Castle Pain - Can you save the princess ? Will you get to the end of Castle Pain ? As an heavily armored knight you must succeed in various challenging platform goodness: Slalom between bird droppings, avoid giant fireballs, flee from the ghost, escape a giant octopus, brave blood thirsty bats and much more... Let the quest begin!
  • Plataformance: Temple Death - While filming her latest movie, famous starlet Grace Belly gets abducted by a sect of evil savages. You decide to go and rescue her down the 'Temple Death'- a place filled with evil traps where only the fools can survive.
  • VectorGeddon - a fast paced missile command style game where your task is to defend earth against a massive asteroid onslaught. Can you save humanity from total annihilation?

This bundle also includes the album Pocustone by Floix if you pay the average price. Are you going to get this bundle? Right now many bundles are still coming out, but I think people may call a timeout for this bundle. Some games were already released on other bundles, and some of us may still be suffering from post-Steam Summer Sale Aftertaste.

Indie Gala: Mobile

Hello guys! A new Indie Gala Bundle is now live! It contains four Android games, and an additional three games and three albums are yours if you beat the minimum price! You will also get the PC/Mac/Linux version of these Android games. [youtube_sc url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYp9P4dXNbI"]

Here are the games included in the bundle:

  • Great Little War Game - Take command of your army and battle the foe on land, sea and air but be sure to make wise decisions as you go. You want to deploy your soldiers to take full advantage of the higher terrain, natural choke points, ambush spots and defensive walls.
  • Cardinal Quest - An arcade-style dungeon-crawler inspired by 1980s classics such as Gauntlet, Red-Box D&D and Golden Axe: Choose your champion and begin your quest to slay the Evil Minotaur! Three distinct characters await you, each providing their own unique experience: The Fierce Fighter - who can stir himself into a berserk frenzy. The Stealthy Thief - a mysterious assassin who dispatches his foes from the shadows. The Mystical Wizard - able to bend the forces of the elements to his will.

And if you beat the average price, you will also get three music albums and these games (PC):

  • Manor of the Damned - A retro inspired action RPG that invokes the memories from the great console games of times past. The game has a deep storyline, intense action, puzzle solving and exploration. You play a destitute wandering vampyre who agrees to help rid a village of a raiding specpyre family. The game features multiple weapons, semi-destructible environments, retro inspired sound effects and graphics, an industrial music sound track, and vampyres that turn into spectres and feed on souls!
  • Turba - Turba provides a gameplay experience unlike any you have encountered before. Load in music from your PC and combo blocks to your favorite tunes in this unique new twist on the “match-3” style game! Watch your favorite music come to life in a whole new way. The blocks on the game board generate and move to the beat of the song you choose.
  • Pitiri 1977 - Pitiri is a platformer, which is paying tribute to its classic predecessors – not only by its gameplay, but also by its background story. A narrative, that is set in 1977 (the glorious year of Star Wars IV, the Voyager 1 spacecraft & Led Zeppelin's “Presence”), in an imposing world, created by using hand-painted graphics, interesting characters and solid physics.

I think I'm gonna skip this indie bundle since I already got the previous 2 epic bundles and I don't use Android. Hhow about you guys? Anyone here play Android games?

Indie Royale: The Graduation Bundle

Hello there guys! Another Indie Bundle is up! This time, it's Indie Royale: The Graduation Bundle featuring 6 games! If you pay more than $7.00 you will also get Cheap Dinosaurs' acclaimed self-titled chiptune-rock album.

  • The Void - When one gives up living and using his soul, he can't only lose the soul but can also devote it to death... Before souls completely die they stick in The Void - an odd space between life and death. There is an outside chance to survive in The Void and even to come back from it. This chance is The Color - the only food of a dying soul wandering through the mournful realms of The Void, governed by monstrous Brothers and malicious Sisters, who are desperately struggling for the last drops of it. The Color is not only the sense of life of these mysterious creatures but also gives power and vital force to the whole Void.
  • Dead Pixel - A toxic waste spill finds its way into the water supply causing the recently deceased rise from their graves. Now you have to shoot your way through the hordes of undead to reach your only hope for survival. On the way to your rescue you will have to search stores and houses for supplies, and trade with other survivors.
  • The Ship - A multiplayer game of subterfuge and assassination, played on a series of 1920s cruise ships. Hunt down and murder your quarry while looking out for the assassin hunting you. Take care of your needs by eating and sleeping, improvise weapons from whatever you can find on board, avoid the cameras and security guards and, whatever you do, don’t lash out with a croquet mallet in front of another passenger!
  • 1000 Amps - Light up the world! As Plug, you are charged with restoring the expansive Amp-Tree-System, and thwarting an enigmatic intruder. Solve puzzles and explore!
  • LaserCat - Jump, dodge and explore in the search for your Owlfriend who has been kidnapped by Wizzord the magic space frog! Playing as Lasercat, you need find all of the keys in the fortress to unlock Owl's prison cell. A retro styled exploration platform game featuring 225 rooms filled with traps, creatures and deadly, deadly lava.
  • AirMech - A revolutionary action-strategy game that puts you in the battle as a giant transforming robot!

I bought this bundle because of the Ship. It includes an additional 2 packs so you can give it to your friends or trade it. AirMech looks interesting, along with the other games. The Void is a bit weird... and creepy.. but yeah. great indie bundle. Anyone wanna play the Ship? (I'm rather interested in The Void, myself. Considering this greatly! -ed)

Indie Royale: The May Hurray Bundle

 

It's been a while but a new Indie Royale indie bundle is up! I've been busy for the past weeks, but I'm still gonna post every indie bundle that I discover! The games that are included in this bundle are:

  • Dungeon Defenders - Long ago, Etheria was once a land of living legends… Throughout the ages, brave warriors across the realm stood together against the forces of evil, led by immortal beings known as the Old Ones… After a titanic struggle, these champions locked away the power of the Old Ones, inside Eternia Crystals…These legendary heroes have recently left their younger kin in charge of the common castle chores… Bored with their dreary duties, the inexperienced pupils decide to play… And accidentally unleash an ancient force that has long been dormant!

You get some sweet bonuses as well! If you pay at least $7.00, you will get an album: Starscream's Future, Toward the Edge of Forever from the NYC chiptune futurists.

I really love Dungeon Defenders. Got addicted to this game but stopped because no one wants to play the game with me. =( The other games are new to me. Recently, I've been trying to control myself from buying more indie bundles because they are too many. How about you guys, are you still buying indie bundles?

Indie Gala IV

Once again it's time for some indie bundle! I apologize for the very very late news. The 4th Indie Gala is up (and has been for almost 2 weeks)! [youtube_sc url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyegDQ4lZPY"]

Right now there are 9 games available on the bundle but after several weeks they'll release another game. The games included in the bundle are:

  • STEEL STORM: Burning Retribution - A top down action shooter with old school spirit. It marks the return of top-down shooters with new twists. The game has score oriented competitive gameplay, and is designed for people who like fast paced action, hordes of smart enemies, destructible worlds and ground shaking explosions.
  • A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda - The first chapter in a full featured episodic hardcore action packed side scrolling platformer, in the traditions of retro classics, where you play as Ares, a combat robot created for the sole purpose of saving humanity.
  • Alien Shooter - The endless darkness and the somber, long passages of a military complex have become the abode of evil, as thousands of blood-thirsty creatures fill its offices, storehouses and mysterious laboratories. Your mission is simple: clear the base at all costs.
  • Alien Shooter 2: Reloaded - A large-scale sequel to the first part of Alien Shooter. This is the unique alloy of arcade action and RPG elements which combines the well-established world of classical games and the unmatched dynamics of the first part.
  • WAKE - An indie game by the creators of The New Satan Sam and Lunnye Devitsy. You are an engineer on a fancy cruise ship, which has gotten hit by a meteorite storm and is now sinking. You must escape the ship and reach the safety raft conveniently atop the sinking ship.
  • LUNNYE DEVITSY - A puzzle platformer concerning a small alien who has fallen off the moon and is now trying to make his way back up there.
  • Really Big Sky - A super fast, twin analogue shooter for the modern age! Way over in the big void of space live some aliens.

  • Altitude - Blast your way across the cartoon skies in this fast-paced game of aerial combat. Nimbly Games has crafted an instantly accessible, rewardingly deep, and ravishingly fun multiplayer action game.

I can see that some of us are getting tired of bundles and the reason is that these bundles keep releasing the same games over and over! But hey, if its very cheap, then that's fine. Right? (right! -ed)
