We thought we lost the Humble Mobile Bundle for good. With mobile packages seeing less movement than regular ones, Humble Bundle announced in mid-November that the would be discontinuing mobile exclusives. The idea was to include mobile games in the normal bundles, but that actuality never really materialized. Every bundle in the intervening time period has been sadly mobile-light. Suddenly, with little fanfare or warning, a new Pac-Man-heavy Humble Mobile Bundle has surfaced.
Historically, the Humble Mobile Bundle has been a biweekly event that let participants pay whatever they wanted to get a collection of cool Android games. Paying above certain thresholds unlocks bonus content, but even those price-tags usually see you sweeping up some pretty hefty bang-for-your-buck.
This bundle is one that’s guaranteed to make long-time gamers nostalgia hard. The seven games are all Bandai Namco productions featuring revamped versions of old favorites like Pac-Man in addition to some modern concoctions that retain an arcade-y feel. Buyers paying over $1 will get Crush the Castle, Pac-Man Kart Rally, and the ever-addictive Flight Control. Pay above the average, and you’ll also scoop up Puzzle Quest 2, Pac-Man Championship Edition, and Ridge Racer Slipstream Special Edition. Pay over $5, and Humble Bundle will throw in Pac-Man CE DX to boot. That’s a pretty sweet haul for five bucks.
There’s no word yet as to whether the Humble Mobile Bundle is back for good, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed for the next two weeks and hope another one pops up.
