Name your own price for a four-game Android bundle


The Humble Bundle for Android 2 includes four games--five if you pay at least the average selling price. And you also get desktop versions.

I love a good game bundle. And the Humble Bundle folks are back with another one that’s just for
Android users. Well, sort of–it’s also for Windows,
Mac, and Linux users.

The Humble Bundle for Android 2 comes with four indie games: Avadon: The Black Fortress, Canabalt, Cogs, and Zen Bound 2. Purchased separately, they’d cost you around $57 (almost–see below).

When you buy the bundle, however, you set the price. Two bucks. Twenty cents. A 10-spot. A portion of the proceeds (whatever portion you want, in fact) can go to charity, so it’s not crazy to open your wallet a bit more than you otherwise might.

But wait, it gets better. If you pay more than the average purchase price (currently $6.36), you get a bonus game: Swords Soldiers, which is actually debuting for Android and Linux as part of this deal. (It was previously just for Windows and Mac.) Just to clarify, it’s that fifth game that brings the bundle’s value to $57.

I can’t say I’m familiar with most of these titles. I have played Canabalt, and it’s a blast. But having checked out the promo video, which has clips from all five games, I think they all look pretty good. A little something for everyone.

And as I mentioned earlier, the bundle includes not only the Android versions of these games, but also the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. You even get the game soundtracks, a nice little perk.

As with previous Humble Bundles, you can decide how your payment gets divided among the developers, a pair of charities (Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation), and the bundlers. Pretty cool arrangement.

This is a great way to score some terrific games on the cheap. And if you’re feeling philanthropic, it’s a great way to score some terrific games and help some worthy causes. Win-win.

By the way, the bundle is available for the next 12 days.
