First off, the title is referring to the 5th time Humble Bundle has teamed up to provide content for Android devices and is not anything to do with Google’s upcoming 5th iteration of Android – it got me confused for a few seconds too! View the video below:
Humble Bundle offers collections of games (and also sometimes albums and e-books) at a price determined by the consumer at the point of purchase. Games are usually from small indie development teams eager to get their creations noticed and in the hands of as many people as possible. Humble Bundles often provide games for Windows, Mac and Linux, although every now and again an Android Bundle is released (you can still install and run the games on a home computer too though). You can download the games for as little money as you like, although paying over the current average (only $6.81 at the time of writing) will net you some extra content including a few more games and the some soundtracks as well.
You also have the option to decide who receives the money you spend, be that the game developers, the Humble Bundle operators or a donation to charity (Child’s Play or the Electronic Frontier Foundation), or a combination of the three of your choosing. Paying at least $1 will also net you a Steam activation key for all of the games you are eligible for. The Humble Bundle with Android 5 currently includes:
Beat Hazard Ultra: A music oriented arcade shooter that can use the tracks stored on your smartphone
Dynamite Jack: A top down stealth action game featuring a captured space marine trying to escape his prison
Solar 2: A quirky physics intergalactic exploration game where you control an asteroid
NightSky HD: A beautiful physic puzzle game where you control a spherical object through a variety of gorgeously rendered environments
Paying above the average will unlock:
Splice: A biology inspired bacterial splicing puzzle game
Super Hexagon: A tough as nails reaction based action game, steadily climbing up the Google Play charts
Dungeon Defenders Second Wave: A cute fantasy style tower defence game with fantastic 3D graphics (also includes all current DLC)
Crayon Physics Deluxe: A creative and interesting physics based game
Sword & Sorcery EP: A future/retro inspired audio-visual treat
Humble Bundle say that getting hold of all of these games and soundtracks separately could cost up to $170 dollars, so the ability to name your price is an incredible bargain, especially considering the bundled Steam activation for your home computer. A list of mobile device requirements are listed on the site, which you are also prompted to take a look at before confirming your purchase. Also take note that you will need to allow 3rd party applications to be installed from the settings menu of your device as the downloads will be in Android package format (.apk) for manual install and not directly from Google Play.
