November 8, 2012 - Written By Justin Diaz

If you’re any kind of fan of indie games out there, you most certainly know about the Humble Bundle and Humble Bundle For Android. Allowing you to pick up a bundle of games by paying any amount you want for the pack and the proceeds of what you pay go to charity. You also have the choice to distribute some of it to the developers which I urge you to do. These guys are putting out great games for us and a lot of their hard work deserves to be noticed. That being said, put on your game hats and ready your thumbs because Humble Bundle For Android 4 is here!

Bringing with it the always noble cause of raising money for charities, Humble Bundle For Android 4 serves up a great set of games this time around. Splice, which is a microbial based puzzler will challenge you to commence cellular alteration to connect and complete a sequence of puzzles. Eufloria is an epic real time strategy game that will have you centered around themes of plant growth and bio mechanical evolution, where you’ll do everything from taking to space and conquering asteroids to growing an organic army of seedlings. This game is accompanied by an amazing ambient soundtrack and boasts beautiful visuals for your enjoyment. Next up is Waking mars which is described by its creators, Tiger Style, as an “action gardening” game. You are stuck beneath the surface of mars, and you must help bring the planet back to life using  the heroes trusty jetpack and a little help from his crew on the surface. Waking mars has been nominated for Best Mobile Game and Excellence in Audio in the 2012 Independent Game Festival.

You might find your inner artist in Crayon Physics Deluxe, a physics based puzzle game. Your drawings and doodles will transform into objects which you can then use to manipulate a ball to the goal in more than 70 uniquely designed levels. This game is available for the first time on Android. One of the two best in this entire pack is SuperBrothers: Sword and Sworcery, which was voted one of the best video games of 2011 by Time Magazine. This is a completely unique and lively experience for an adventure game. The games storyline is unveiled in episodic segments, each one having you make your way through a different mythical realm to complete it. You will use your sword to battle and utilize sworcery to solve the many puzzles that lie within the game. Every scene displays rich engaging graphics, and the auditory detail will plunge you head first into the game as if you were the hero yourself.

Lastly and most of all my favorite is Machinarium. Before I get you all hyped up on this diamond in the rough, you must put forth a minimum of $5.89 to the Humble Bundle cause to unlock this game. Trust me though it’s worth it. This game alone was like $6 or $7 on the Play store. Machinarium is a Point and Click adventure game where you play as heroic little robot that has had his love taken away from him. You must travel through the dilapidated machine city while solving quirky mind-boggling puzzles that will allow you to progress further. Achieve this goal, and your one step closer to saving your girlfriend and friends from the bully robots that have taken them hostage. Quaint yet gorgeous visuals and a somewhat soothing background tone of melodic audio set this game apart from any of the others. I very much enjoy this game and if you like games that test your brain but still tell a story that you can feel involved in, than you will love this as much as I have.

As always, you will have about two weeks to pick up the Humble Bundle for Android 4 pack of games before it is no longer available. Pending its popularity we may even see some games added in over the next week or two as they have done in the past. Indie games at their best are all you’ll find here. Each delivering an impressively refreshing gaming experience unlike any other and all with breathtaking soundtracks to play to. Pick this up quick though as the longer you wait, the more the minimum will become to unlock the special game(s). Humble games for humble folks.
