Indie Royale Replay Bundle Vol 1
Indie Royale is re-running a bundle of popular games, so if you buy regularly you probably already own these. However, Defense Grid: The Awakening is a great tower defense game - so if you don't have it this is probably worth picking up.

Defense Grid

Gemini Rue

Fly'N - Steam Flash Sale
I've been posting the normal Steam Sale playlists on my channel for the Holiday Sale, but I wanted to mention Fly'N since it only has 90 minutes left on the $5.00 flash sale. If you like platformers take a look:

Eclectic Delights Bundle
Bundle In A Box is back with another interesting bundle. This one doesn't really seem to have a particular theme like the previous offerings, so it's a rather wide selection. Here are the three games I've reviewed:


Delve Deeper

Adventures of Shuggy

Humble THQ Bundle
With only a day left, if you haven't picked up the THQ bundle from Humble you should really take a look at it. They've added several bonus games, so it's without question a great value. I've already posted reviews for two of the games since it released:

Saints Row the Third


Indie Royale Winter Bundle
Indie Royale just released a new bundle, and apparently I already have my two favorite games from the selection reviewed. If you haven't played Greed Corp or BIT.TRIP RUNNER, they're definitely worth checking out. Hamlet potentially looks interesting as well, but I haven't had a chance to play it yet.

Greed Corp


IndieRoyale Harvest Bundle
The IndieRoyale Harvest Bundle has 3 days left and offers several solid games for a minimum of approximately $5.50. Here are reviews for everything except the two platformers (Mutant Mudds and BasketBelle).

Pineapple Smash Crew

Avernum Trilogy


Groupees Build-a-Bundle 4
Groupees is back with another build-a-bundle, which will cost you from $1.50 for 2 games, up to $5.75 if you want all 9 titles. There are three RTS type games - Stellar Impact, Men of War, and Fantasy Wars.

Orczz is a line-defense game, similar to Plants Vs Zombies. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a speed control though, so it takes quite a long time to slog through the levels. Robin Hood is somewhat like the Commandos series - older and runs at fairly low resolutions.

Velvet Assassin is somewhat like Hitman - unfortunately the biggest flaw is that once you're seen you have no ability to kill the enemy with melee attacks, unless you have a morphine power-up available. This can be rather frustrating. You should at least get a chance to kill them, especially if they're right in front of you.

Vitrium is a first-person puzzle game, somewhat like Q.U.B.E. - though the gameplay is much rougher at this point. They don't fully explain the mechanics in the tutorial, and if you make a single mistake on any part of the level you go back to the very beginning. This can be frustrating in the bland tutorial areas. They definitely need more checkpoints for these.

Finally there is Zombies, a rather short but still review-worthy isometric shooter:

It's rather unfortunate that Velvet Assassin and Vitrium have annoying flaws, they looked like they had the most potential when I purchased this bundle.

Humble Indie Android Bundle 4
The Humble Bundle is back with the Android Bundle 4 - again promoting games that run on both PC and phones. As always, the PC versions work on Windows, Linux, and Mac.

For some reason, Machinarium - a game that has been in the most previous Humble bundles is the "beat the average" bonus. If you don't care about that, paying $1 or more will get you Steam keys for Splice, Eufloria, Crayon Physics Deluxe (bundle repeat), and Superbrothers (repeat). Waking Mars is only DRM free.

I'm not a huge fan of any of these games, though most of them are fairly solid.
