Update: As per tradition, the latest Humble Bundle has added a few more games to collection for those who beat the average. The Humble Bundle for PC and Android 8 now includes Solar 2, The Bard's Tale, and Bad Hotel. Plus, all three games' soundtracks are also included! For those late to the party the current average sits at $4.30, but for previous average beaters they can download their games right now. That's 9 great games for less than $5, plus it goes to charity!
No doubt, the folk over at the Humble Bundle love Android and it appears that with the newly launched Humble Bundle 8 their Android love has leaked into their PC love once more. Yes, Humble Bundle 8 is for both PC and Android, as well as Linux and Mac and of course available DRM free. As standard for Humble Bundles it's again Pay-What-You-Want, but two games require purchasers to beat the average. Just like Humble Bundle for Android 7, PC users can get in on the fun too!
Before we analyze the bundle a bit, here are the games included in Humble Bundle 8:
Pay What You Want
- Little Inferno + Soundtrack
- Gemini Rue + Soundtrack
- AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome (or its Android counterpart AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration))
- Jack Lumber + Soundtrack
Beat The Average
- Hero Academy
- Anomaly 2 + Soundtrack
- More games to come!
Not a bad bundle, to be sure, but not necessarily the best bundle either. Still, it's great to see Humble Bundle creating these works for Android, increasing the gaming environment on mobile platforms all the while embracing, "Works for PC, too!" Best of both worlds, though there's not really any leading titles in this bundle...
Who am I to complain? Humble Bundle 8 is still six great games for extremely low prices. Everyone should jump in and grab them if they get the opportunity. Plus, more games to come! Sure, it won't stand up to the Braid bundle or the Bastion bundle, but it's still a great deal. Check out the Humble Bundle site to pick the games up.
