Humble Mobile Bundle Offers Contre Jour, The Room, and More
Some of these games have even won awards.
A new Humble Bundle, available for the next ten days, lets you buy four Android-compatible games for whatever price you choose, and six if you pay above the average. Any amount of cash will net you Contre Jour, Anomaly Korea, Plants vs. Zombies, and Bladeslinger, but pay more than $5.52 (at the time of writing) and you'll also get Metal Slug 3 and The Room. Not sure whether these games are even worth a cent? To help you decide, here's a brief description for each:
Contre Jour is an arty black-and-white physics-based puzzler. You control the environment to help a little one-eyed creature make his way through each level. The game was named Best of Show at SXSW this year.
Anomaly Korea is a reverse tower defence game, which makes you the invader. As you might have guessed, the game is set in Korea, except this is a Korea infested with aliens.
Plants vs. Zombies is a non-reversed tower defence game (so... just a tower defence game then), except your towers are cartoony plants that stave off a variety of zombies.
Bladeslinger is a third-person action brawler in which you play as a cowboy armed with a gun with a blade on the end of it.
Metal Slug 3 is an arcade classic, a side-scrolling shooter in which you come up against things like zombies and UFOs.
The Room is a 3D escape-the-room puzzler. You're trapped in a room with nothing but a safe, and you have to work out how to open it. The game won the BAFTA Award for Best British Game this year, and this is its first appearance on Android.
