If you haven't picked up on the charity-driven bundle of Android games that went live last week, maybe the addition of Cogs, Canabalt, Zen Bound 2, Swords & Soldiers HD, and Avadon: The Black Fortress will tempt you. Those that have got in on previous Humble Bundles will recognize these titles, though many of those announced initially with the Android Humble Bundle 4 aren't even on Google Play yet. Those first titles include Splice, Eufloria, Waking Mars, Machinarium, Crayon Physics Deluxe, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. Waking Mars looks especially cool, but really, they're all fantastic games.

The catch with the new bonus games is that you have to pay more than the average donation price, which currently sits at $6.18. See, they have a pay-what-you-want structure here, and you get to pick how you want to split up your donation between devs, the Humble Bundle organizers, and charity. Where available, you'll also get Steam codes to play these games on your PC. There's also an Android app available to keep tabs on new bundles, get game updates, and download previous purchases. 

Head on over to Humble Bundle's site to get started. So, who's already got the bundle? What's your favorite game in it so far?

I really like Zen Bound 2 on my Nexus 7. Cogs is pretty good, though the spinning around gesture is a little buggy on the smaller tablet.

If you didn't get these under the $0.25 sale, this is a superb opportunity.

I got it last week too, and after seeing this today bought a pack for my girlfriend as well, since she liked machinarium so much when I showed it to her on my phone.

Wow. I paid $20 last week and thought that was cheap already. Now they go and give me more games?! Really wanna support these developers as more than a few of them are great iOS games finally making their way to Android.

For the past month or so I've been playing the hell out of Borderlands 2, and just started playing Mass Effect 3 again (in anticipation for the Omega DLC); and the weird thing is, once I played Eufloria, I dropped those games and started playing that instead! An amazing game - unique and addicting! Starting with a small colony of seeds and only one planet, then expanding and conquering others - repetitive but satisfying! Nice visuals, and a great soundtrack. weird how such a simple game can drive me away from today's blockbuster games. Kind of sucks though that the game is so poorly optimized for Tegra 3, although maybe that's just on the Nexus 7. Runs like a slideshow sometimes, compared to other high-end games like NFS: Most Wanted, Dead Trigger, Mass Effect: Infiltrator....ok, those are all shooters, but still...

Cogs is a pretty good puzzler. Wasn't it included in the previous bundle as well? Maybe I got that mixed up with that $0.25 sale.

Like the fact this allows me to catch up on a previous bundle via the bonus unlockables! Great for late arrival to the humble party!!
