Five amazing games for your mobile delight. This time bringing you a mountain of entertainment for your Android devices. Pay-what-you-want to get BIT.TRIP BEAT, Fieldrunners, SpaceChem, and Uplink! And if you beat the average price, you also get the beautiful platform-puzzler Spirits!
Note: Uplink and SpaceChem require tablets if your are playing the Android version.
Buying the Humble Bundle for Android 3 also gets you the games on Windows, Mac, and Linux. As another bonus, for your listening pleasure, each game also comes with an official soundtrack.
As per usual with the Humble Bundles you pay what you want. On their own, these games and their soundtracks would cost to the tune of $52, as of the writing of this article the average purchase is sitting at $6.07.
You get to choose where your money goes. Decide how your purchase is divided: between the developers, the Child’s Play Charity, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation. And, if you choose, a Humble tip for the people putting this promotion together.
Games of this bundle include
Take your towers on the offensive against an endless sprawl of baddies in this tower defense classic. Your goal is to keep your opponents from crossing the battlefield and taking you down. Populate everything in between with deadly towers and create intricate mazes to incinerate, freeze, laser, and electrocute your way to victory.
BIT.TRIP BEAT is a charming, retro-inspired music rhythm game. Players must deflect an onslaught of projectiles, each successful deflection resulting in a musical sound. Link ‘em together to get a rhythm going! Every move is crucial, as letting anything through will threaten to disrupt the beat. This is the BIT.TRIP sensation that has — so far — spawned five awesome spin-offs and sequels.
In SpaceChem, players take on the role of a Reactor Engineer, designing complex reactors that transform raw atoms into the complex chemicals needed to survive sinister threats on the frontier colonies of space. It’s a maddeningly addictive puzzle game, and with the help of the built in level editor, it’s ensured that you’ll have plenty of challenging atomic manipulation at your fingertips.
Break into computer systems and nab valuable, secret information as you take on the role of a hacker for-hire in Uplink. The hacking gameplay in Uplink is textbook cyberpunk, complete with cracking software, credits, and nasty mega corporations. It’s like a puzzle-adventure with all the action taking place between bits and bytes in cyberspace.
* Note that the Android version of Uplink is only compatible with tablet devices.
(*If you pay more then the average)
In this beautiful puzzle-platformer, autumn has arrived and you must help the spirits of fallen leaves find their way home. With only indirect control at your fingertips, you must choose a few good spirits to build stairs, change wind flow, and act as guides for the rest of the spirits, making decisions that may ultimately sacrifice the few to save the many.

So buying these games goes to a good cause and you get a DRM free copy no matter how much you pay. Also the Humble Bundle guys have a habit of adding more games through the remaining days of a Bundle, usually automatically credited to gamers who buy early.
