YEEEEEEEEEES!!! I can't believe Superbrothers:S&S, Crayon Physics, Eufloria and Machinarium all are going to hit Android!
Superbrothers was iOS exclusive before and I was eagerly awaiting its' launch on Android.
I remember thinking that Eufloria would fit a touchscreen perfectly before. I'm glad the developers thought the same :)

THIS is a bundle to buy people! It includes many great and unique games. Machinarium being probably my favorite point&click game of all time.

Aaaaw, ****.
Machinarium requires a minimum resolution of 1024x600 on phones >:[
(and 1280x720 on Tablets)

Still a great bundle though and I'm more than willing to give them 15$ for this.

Beside my awesome Bada-Phone (LOLNOPE) I dont really like the old-ish games (like Jump n' Run). Hate me or not, it's just how it is. I never liked Mario, too.
Thanks to JEFFY40HANDS!

^Well, none of the games are "old".
Machinarium is the only game that could be interpreted as such, but it's still a big improvement to the point&click genre compared to older games that were very illogical and rather ridiculous.

Eufloria, Splice, Superbrothers and Crayon Physics are all thoroughly unique games and there haven't really ever been a game similar to them made in the past.

I know but I meant old-ish. I guess thei're made in that style old games were made. Amiraight?
And the only Indie-Game I'd enjoy to play is FTL.
Thanks to Amazing Monkey!

No, you are most certainly not.

As I said; the only game that could be interpereted as such is Machinarium, but it's still a big improvement to the point&click genre compared to older games that were very illogical and rather ridiculous.

The rest of the games are thoroughly unique and nothing similar has been done before.

I think you have a very narrow minded view on Indie-games..

If you're even a little bit interested, just throw 6 or 7$ on it, I mean; it's no money, really. It costs roughly the same as 3 chocolate bars and you get 6 good games for it (and I'm 99% sure they will add more games to this bundle later, without any extra cost) and all the soundtracks for the games (2 of which are amazing in this bundle; Superbrothers and Machinarium).
If you love the games you could go to the download page and increase your payment to support the charities and the developers further.

Heck, you could even donate 10$ entirely to charity and get the games. They allow you to do that.

Okay, I've downloaded all the games (that I can run) and tested them out.



Eufloria is a GREAT port. It lagged my phone, so I just turned down the graphics settings. I KNOW, RIGHT? AN ANDROID GAME WITH GRAPHIC SETTINGS.

Crayon Physics seems like a decent port, but I feel like it would work better on a Tablet, it's a bit hard to draw stuff on a small phone.

Splice has amazing graphics :o and it's a great port from what I can see, sadly my phone is old, so it lags :(
Overall it seems like a nice puzzle game.

Superbrothers works very well for a BETA. There are only a few small things that make you notice it, like the smudged Twitter login screen and the lack of a settings screen(there's a button for it).
It's an awesome game btw.

Waking Mars looks great and runs smooth, but the gameplay itself is rather uninteresting so far. I'm still only at the start of the game though(like 10min in).

I bought it without knowing that machinarium can't run on my phone = (
Still very much worth the 7$ though.
