If you still can’t get enough from puzzles, but want to have a less text-heavy experience than Maniac Mansion or Day of the Tentacle: Remastered, then the Humble Mobile Bundle: Puzzles (Critical Hits) will provide many hours of head-scratching fun.
Mobile gaming is perfect for short brain-teasers in aesthetically pleasing environments, so this bundle is a pretty good collection of indie games. Starting with 1 Dollar, minimalist connect-the-lines klocki and click-and-find-out Hook come with relaxing picture-puzzler Zenge that even tells a story with lonely journeyman Eon who is stuck between worlds and time.
Paying 5 Dollars or more unlocks much more complex games like subway simulation Mini Metro, satirical work simulation Human Resource Machine, and turn-based puzzle stealth game Deus Ex GO. I already wrote about the PC releases of Mini Metro and Human Resource Machine, so it’s great to be finally able to play them on the go, while the Deus Ex mobile version also seems to be less than a cash-in time-waster, but more of a full and entertaining game.
Paying more than the average price of around 6 Dollars gives you the snowball-rolling Sokoban-inspired puzzler A Good Snowman Is Hard to Build, tongue-in-cheek city planning simulation Concrete Jungle, and Slayaway Camp, an awesome stealth game ode to 80ies slashers.
There’s really a lot to love in this bundle, and I’m happy to say that Humble Bundle has found some more interesting bundles to promote in the last few weeks, while also providing free stuff. So if you don’t want to spend any money, you can simply get the Human Resource Machine soundtrack and Slayaway Camp Deluxe Edition content including the soundtrack, wallpapers, avatars, papercraft templates, a poetry audiobook, diary and journal scans, concept sketches, videos and other treasures from the development of Slayaway Camp. So don’t wait too long before the offer expires in about two days.
