Now that we have looked at the individual games of this 4+2 bundle, the question is whether any make the bundle worth getting? In my opinion, most definitely do. Of the base games, Ravensword: Shadowlands appears to be a strong title that can satisfy an action-RPG itch very nicely, though it is likely best played on PC. Type:Rider offers a very good platformer experience on Android, and covers an interesting subject matter. Bridge Constructor is likewise a fun Android experience, but I would say it best fills the role of a commuter-game, allowing you to pick up, play, and put it down easily. As a PC game though, it does not stand out much. Those three games all impressed me enough to recommend the bundle for, which Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror failed to do. It still looks to be an enjoyable game, but it did not grab me, and I had some issues with it on the Android version. It is worth playing if you get the bundle and are interested in it, but not worth getting the bundle to play, at least in my opinion.
I found the two beat-the-average games, Kingdom Rush and Knights of Pen and Paper, to be very enjoyable. Kingdom Rush offers a deep and well-designed tower defense experience on both Android and PC. Knights of Pen and Paper is an even deeper game, but not too intimidating, especially if you are familiar with other turn-based RPGs. Either game, on its own, I would recommend beating the average for, so beating the average for both makes perfect sense.
Overall the Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9 is a very strong bundle that I can easily and comfortably recommend picking up to just about anyone. So go buy it, help charity and developers, and have some fun!
