Contre Jour, The Room, Anomaly Korea, and more great Android games featured in latest Humble Mobile Bundle
While most Android users get their gaming fix straight from the Google Play store – where hundreds of thousands of video games are available for download, that isn't the only place one can purchase Android software from. In fact, there's a number of alternative marketplaces out there, and while some of them wouldn't really recommend bothering with, others are definitely worth browsing through.
One of them is Humble Bundle, which is dedicated to bringing packs of great PC, Mac, Linux, and Android games at an excellent price, all the while making the world a better place. Well actually, there is no price tag attached to the game bundles that are being offered. Instead, customers pay as much as they want to, and as an added bonus they get some of the games' soundtracks on MP3 or FLAC. Not too shabby of a deal, right?
As for that “making the world a better place” part of the deal, some of the money that one pays for a bundle gets donated to charity. One of the non-profits that benefits is the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which fights in courtrooms and Congress to protect privacy and free expression online and throughout the world. The other is the Child's Play charity, dedicated to providing games and gaming systems for sick children in hospitals.
So yeah, that's how Humble Bundle works! In case we've already sparked your curiosity, perhaps you'll also be interested in the games included in the latest Humble Mobile Bundle. There's six premium titles featured in the set – four for all buyers and two more for those who pay more than the bundle's average price ($5.56 as of this writing). Let's go over them!
While the game's first few levels are fairly easy, Contre Jour gets increasingly challenging the further you progress, especially if you're trying to get three stars on each stage. Puzzle games fans are going to love it not only because of its unique gameplay requiring them to modify the terrain and interact with various objects in order to progress, but also because of the atmosphere created by blending beautiful, monochrome graphics with original chill-out tunes.
You'll have to take full advantage of the terrain and the limited number of power-ups your team will be given, as otherwise the bad guys won't think twice before blowing up your last tank. There's money involved as well, awarded for taking down enemy towers and used for upgrading your army, or buying new vehicles. All of this action takes place in a beautifully-rendered, three-dimensional, post-apocalyptic world. Simply put, Anomaly Korea is a must-try!
Plants vs Zombies
We must warn you that Plants vs Zombies, as many other tower defense games, is addictive and you might not be able to put it down until you've beaten all levels and unlocked all plants. Perhaps doing so is relatively easy as most levels can be beaten without having to start over, yet nevertheless, the game is enjoyable and fun. In case you still haven't played it, our advice is to give it a try!
Metal Slug 3
