Last week Humble Bundle announced the Humble Mobile Bundle 5 which included up to six titles. As they typically do, additional titles are being added to the bundle. Today three more games showed up on the order page for the bundle, Paper Monsters, R-Type and Enviro-Bear 2010.

humble_bundle_9We like to talk about Humble Bumble a lot at TA, and for good reason. If you aren’t familiar, Humble Bumble lets you buy a group of games for a lower than average price, while helping developers and charity. Humble Bumble PC and Android 9 already had six games, but if you pay more than the average, you’ll now get three additional titles: Savant: Ascent, Snyder Arcade, and The Shivah.

In Savant: Ascent, you go up a tower in search of a curious orb while battling enemies. Snyder Arcade is “serious old-school gaming,” as you blast objects in outer space in this shoot-em-up. The last game, The Shivah, you are a Jewish Rabbi trying to find the truth behind money left to him.

The current average price is $3.90, so if you pay more than that you’ll get all of the titles available. Download via the link below.

Well it’s about time. Zombie fans have something to get excited about today. Already available in the Amazon Appstore since January, The Walking Dead Season One game is now ready for your downloading pleasure from the Google Play Store. This game comes from Telltale Games, and is a five-part series. The first part is free, and episodes 2-5 are available through an in-app purchase.

This game doesn’t follow the popular hit TV show, but I am told this game is very good. You play Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, that has been given a second chance at life. Interestingly enough, that second chance at life involves a heavy dose of the undead. Your actions will control how the story unfolds.

Gameloft optimizing games for Amazon’s Fire TV

Gameloft

As Amazon finally moves into the market of devices meant to help consumers get digital content displayed on their TVs with the release of their Fire TV device, one of the big factors that may influence their success will be apps, including games. We’ve already seen Google’s strategy with Chromecast play out as they slowly dribbled out the ability for services and apps to make use of the device. Amazon appears to have done more work to ensure content is ready with the shipment of the devices, but there is still room for more apps to join the party. One example is Gameloft, which has already started optimizing their titles for use on Fire TV.

Initially, Gameloft has made three titles ready for Fire TV – Asphalt 8: Airborne, Modern Combat 4, and Despicable Me: Minion Rush. Gameloft says they will be optimizing more titles in the future. The company thinks “Amazon’s broad consumer base” will help drive the reach of their titles on the platform and ultimately the success of Fire TV.

Does the ability to access leading game titles, like those from Gameloft, have an impact on your interest in a device like the Amazon Fire TV?
