Humble Bundle For Android 2 Goes Live 45

spidweb writes "The latest Humble Bundle has gone live, with five new games for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Android. It consists of Zen Bound 2, Avadon: The Black Fortress, Canabalt, and Cogs, with Swords & Soldiers thrown in for anyone who pays at least the average. As always, the games are pay-what-you-want and DRM-free, and this is the initial Linux and Android release for many of them. Of course, as is the tradition with Humble Bundles, other games are likely to be added on later."

    There have been a few... Desura runs Indie Royale, Get Games did littleBIGbunch, there's another group called Indie Gala that's done something similar, and there's been a couple of other various indie game bundles that have run as well.

    Canabalt is a side scroller game that shows a character running across rooftops and through buildings. You can only control the jumping of the character, which must be used to jump over gaps and evade obstacles. The goal is to cover as much distance as possible without falling into some kind of pit or smacking straight into a wall. It's a really simple but a fun concept. It does trigger that "Ok, just one more go" thing every time you've stumbled in your run.
    Cogs is a nicely designed puzzler game, but in the end it's just a sliding blocks puzzle. They do some interesting things with it, but in all honesty, these types of puzzles frustrate me more than I enjoy them. It's all dressed up in an very steam-punk type of thing and there are quite a few original things in there but the core concept of the game will probably lose my attention fairly quicly.
    Zen Bound 2's menu system looks absolutely impressive. When I tap the "new game" button (on my HTC Sensation) it shows a black screen and nothing more seems to happen. Maybe I'll try this one on Windows later, as it does seem like an interesting game.
    Haven't tried or looked much at the Avadon game yet. Also be aware that it won't run on Android phones, only on Android tablets. Supposedly it's some kind of RPG type of game.
    I haven't played Swords & Soldiers on Android or PC yet, but I did play it quite a bit on the Wii, where it was originally released a few years back. It's definitely a fun game with good production value. It's a strategic side-scroller game where you have a base on the left side of the playing field and the enemy starts all the way to the right. You can build soldiers that slowly march towards the other side of the playing field. As they encounter enemy soldiers they duke it out and the survivor moves on. It's not unlike DOTA or LoL in that aspect. You can aid your own soldiers by using lightning bolt blasts or healing spells and such.
