The first Humble Bundle for Android was a smashing success, selling hundreds of thousands of copies to benefit charity and the independent developers behind the titles. The bundle is now back for a second round, and it’s more exciting than ever for Android owners. See, all the games released in the first bundle were previously available for Android. This bundle? All new to Android.
Canabalt HD: Adam Atomic’s endless runner, one of the finest examples of the genre, makes its debut on Android. Originally released back in 2009, this stylish game featuring music by Danny Baranowsky has players jumping from rooftop to rooftop, trying to run as far as possible before meeting their demise. The Android version features special 3D effects exclusive to this game. The desktop version features a hotseat 2-player mode as well.
Zen Bound 2: Use rope to tie up wooden sculptures, with the goal being to cover a set percentage of the figure to complete it. The game was known on iOS for making use of three-dimensional space, requiring an order of thinking not seen in many other games.
Cogs: This puzzle game takes sliding puzzles, and adds gears to them. The goal is to make each board’s gears all turn each other, by sliding the pieces around to get the setup just perfect. Other levels involve elements like pipes, and even three-dimensional cube levels.
Avadon: The Black Fortress: Explore a world inspired by the RPGs of old in this game by Spiderweb Software, only available for tablets. This should appeal to fans of turn-based games, and computer RPGs of the 90’s with its theme and isometric, grid-based gameplay.
Swords and Soldiers: In this strategy game taking place on a layered two-dimensional plane, players summon soldiers and resource collectors to try and overwhelm their opponent on the other side. This game is only available by paying above the average price of the bundle.
That’s a rundown of the five titles, all making their debut on Android. The bundle title is somewhat inaccurate, as it does feature the PC/Mac/Linux versions of the games, and in Canabalt‘s case, features a new version of the game not seen outside of the Winnitron arcade cabinets. The bundle is available now, and is on sale until April 2nd.
