With the individual titles reviewed, it is time to see what stands out from the pack and makes the bundle worth buying. Of the base games, I enjoyed playing them all, with the exception of Gemini Rue, but none of them leapt out to me as a singular reason to purchase the entire bundle. AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome, Jack Lumber, and Little Inferno each felt like they would satisfy only certain niches and alone could be passed over. Together though, they do offer a compelling package and make the bundle worth getting.
Of the beat-the-average games, I find Anomaly 2 to be worth the price alone. It is a strong title and a solid experience, and I have not even played it all the way through! Hero Academy could also be worth it, but only if you can take advantage of the multiplayer. Without friends or a willingness to play with strangers, the single-player is just not compelling enough to warrant a purchase.
There you have it. The Humble Bundle: PC and Android 8 only seems to have one truly stand-out title; three of the others do stand-up, while one is more dependent on your situation. Altogether it is a good bundle that can satisfy a variety of niches.
