A common criticism of Android is that it doesn’t get all of the games that Apple’s iOS gets. This is true, but it’s quickly becoming a moot point. More and more developers are jumping on board the Android train, and six games hit Android for the first time today with the fourth Humble Bundle for Android.
Android players, and PC gamers, can pay as much, or as little, as they want for five excellent games. Those games are Splice, Eufloria, Waking Mars, Crayon Physics Deluxe and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. Those who beat the average of $5.89 will also get the charming Machinarium. All the game sare playable on Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.
Many of these games are already available on the PC, Mac, Linux and iOS, but it’s the first time any of these games have been available on Android. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery is an especially welcome addition as iOS players have been gushing about the game for over a year now. Android players will finally get to experience one of the finest games, and soundtracks, of the touch generation.
In the past, the Humble Bundle has brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars for developer and groups like EFF and Child’s Play Charity. Even if you already own some of the games on offer, it’s always good to send some money to the groups working to make the world a better place.
Even better, you could gift the games to a friend who doesn’t own any of them. It’s a cheap early Christmas gift that offers many hours of entertainment.
