Vive le différence!
Make sure to get the soundtracks for Waking Mars and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, highly recommended
Very much enjoying Waking Mars. I'm a little bit of the way through the second chapter. Not having an iDevice, I've been waiting for this to come out on PC for ages. :) I just hope that the decision to go for bundling at launch works in their favour.
I've always liked the look of Eufloria and haven't got around to it till now, so there is at least one other thing in the bundle that I wanted. (I now own Machinarium three times, and I've already played Sword and Sworcery.) I'll just have to see if it works on my computer, as I'm stuck with horrible Intel graphics which it says it doesn't support, or possibly on my phone.
All in all, looks like a good bundle.
"Harry uses the One Ring to defeat Magneto and save the Rebellion!"
With thanks to RaveTurned in comments on the main page.
Just looking at the requirements page, I noticed a couple of the Android APKs are in 100s of Mbs - Waking Mars is 223Mb
TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY FUCKING THREE MEGABYTES FOR A FUCKING MOBILE GAME - WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK!!
Until recently there was a 25Mb limit on APKs - some phones still can't deal with more - hell until last year most phones wobbled if an APK went past 3Mb!!
I'll miss the days when people made mobile games for mobile phones - they seem to be a-ending as people demand "big" games crammed into small boxes
Actually, I just noticed that Splice is even bigger - holy maboly...
I just hit the 'install this monstrous bastard onto my monstrous bastard of a phone' (Galaxy S3) button - we'll see what happens when it's been downloadified then...
I'm expecting a weighty game (or perhaps a Force Close!) :)
IndieGameStand has The Journey Down, chapter 1 for PWYW. When I saw that this was the point-and-click adventure game where every character is an African mask, I went for it immediately. Ten dollars gets you the previous game, Gimbal, and the next game on sale as well. Average price is still under two dollars, so hop on. (I gave them four, btw.)
I have to ask, since I got Spirits from the last Android humble bundle - I played a few levels and quickly decided it wasn't going to captivate me, as most mobile 'complete puzzle, receive stars out of three' fail to do. Now it's back in Indie Royale, so is there something more to it than I've seen?

Waking Mars ran for a whopping minute and a bit before crashing - again and again at the same spot - on the world's best-selling smartphone, no less, so they're going to get some flaming there then...
For the record, of what I saw, no idea why my eyes were being made to BLEED to read the TINY text and the image of the girl you're talking too looks like it was stolen from Facebook - but otherwise it seemed interesting - but not interesting enough to install it on the PC, perhaps...
I'd test it on other devices but I don't think I have anything which would cope with a 223Mb APK - HTC Desire hasn't got a hope (it has 97Mb of free memory at most) - ZTE Blade isn't much better - Vega Tablet won't run a 198Mb APK...
Actually - there aren't really that many Android devices it WILL work on when I think about it - current gen tablets and phones only, really
