It’s been quite a bit since the last Humble Bundle for Android, so it may be a surprise to hear this, but the Humble Bundle for Android #3 has launched and is currently live. It returned this morning for its third time, giving android gaming enthusiasts a chance to pick up for indie games at a price you can set for yourself. As regular with the Humble Bundle, you’ll be able to specify where your money will go exactly when purchasing the game. You can choose to help fund one of two charities, Child’s Play or the EFF. That or you can give back to the developers of the game or just throw in a tip to the guys who make all of this happen, the Humble Bundle crew!
You can spend a dollar to get a Steam Key, or you can give whatever price you want. Whether you’re feeling generous or not, you’ll get four of the Humble Bundle for Android games. If you decide to pay more than the average price, you’ll get access to a 5th game. If you were wondering, all of the games are playable on Windows, Linux iOS as well as it’s main system, Android.
The Humble Bundle #3 games are as follows in their respective order. Fieldrunners, Bit.Trip.Beat, SpaceChem, Uplink and Spriits. Keep an eye out for more games as the Humble Bundle progresses, they’ll often sneak a couple more into the deal along with the soundtracks the games contain!
Here’s the full details about the Humble Bundle #3 for Android:
For two weeks, fans can pay whatever price they want to support the developers and receive the following games for Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux:
- the retro-inspired music rhythm game BIT.TRIP BEAT from Gaijin Games, making its Android and Linux debut
- renowned tower defense title Fieldrunners from Subatomic Studios, making its Linux debut
- the maddeningly addictive puzzle game SpaceChem from Zachtronics Industries
- the cyberpunk hacking puzzle-adventure Uplink from Introversion Software, making its Android debut
If a buyer decides to pay more than the average price at the time of their visit to the site, then they will also receive:
- Spirits from Spaces of Play, a darling puzzle platformer making its Windows, Android, and Linux debut
Purchasing a bundle for $1.00 or more will also unlock a Steam key for all the games. Additionally, all the games are made available on the Ubuntu Software Center.
While the PC versions of the Humble Bundle are their most popular, the Android versions I think are so much better and for one reason. The Humble Bundle seems to be more focused on Indie games and for the quality of Indie games that are out, to me as a personal opinion, they feel as if they were almost made for a mobile device (not saying that is exclusively Android) instead of being a PC title. That does not apply to all Indie titles of course, some you can really tell are hardcore PC titles. It just feels as if some of them are more simplistic thus fitting very well on a mobile platform like Android or iOS. That’s just a personal opinion though. That said, I myself will definitely be picking up the Humble Bundle #3 soon here.
