Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9

Humble Bundles are a great way to pick up new games. Sometimes they're computer games, sometimes they're Android games, but they're always awesome games. So what happened when there are eight games that you can download for computer and Android?

Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9, that's what.

So what's on tap? (That's an Android touchscreen pun. Doesn't work so well on the computer side of things...)
  • Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror by Revolution Software: If you like things that are beautifully animated and in the vein of classic point-and-click adventure games, then you're looking for the second installment of the Broken Sword series.
  • Bridge Constructor by Merge Games: Deceivingly fun. I know it's strange to say about a bridge-building simulator - the title doesn't pull any punches - but it's oddly addicting (and macabre in a sense, depending on the bridge you build).
  • Type:Rider by BulkyPix: Typography is very cool. If you don't believe me, go watch the documentary Helvetica. Type:Rider takes that to the next level with font-inspired platforming action with a unique aesthetic.
  • Ravensword: Shadowlands by Crescent Moon Games: An epic action-adventure title that pretty much gives you anything you would want in a fantasy game. And by that I mean plenty of dragons, trolls, and other mythological creatures you can kill with your medeival weapon of choice.
  • Kingdom Rush by Ironhide Game Studio: There are a lot of tower defense games out there, but few have the cartoony charm and colorful battles of Kingdom Rush.
  • Knights of Pen and Paper +1 Edition by Paradox Interactive: There are two types of RPGs (and, I suppose RPG players) out there: the pen-and-paper type, and the video game type. "But how can you have a video game with 'Pen and Paper' in the title?!" Because you play as players playing a pen-and-paper RPG. It's all very Inception, if Inception was a 16-bit RPG.
  • The Shivah by Wadjet Eye Games: Decidedly darker than most of the other games included, you take the role of a rabbi facing a declining congregation in a point-and-click adventure that deals with some pretty heavy topics of faith.
  • Savant - Ascent by D-Pad Studios: A unique take on shoot 'em up-style games, heavy on the music thanks to the contribution of Savant.
  • Syder Arcade by Studio Evil: But what if you want your shoot 'em ups to be a little more old school? The hectic Syder Arcade might be a little more your speed.
Note that the latter five are only unlocked when you pay more than the average, but that's not a problem, because a) as of this posting, the average is a mere $3.90, and b) did you forget that a portion of the proceeds go to charity, and that c) all of the games are DRM-free and multiplatform, and that d) game soundtracks are included? Of course you didn't! There are five days left for this bundle, so go ahead and buy it and start gaming at home or on the go.
