Humble Mobile Bundle 2 debuts Star Command on Android


6:30 PM on 09.26.2013



The Humble Bundle people are at it again, with the second official mobile bundle, though they have had other Android-based bundles before they started numbering. This is the standard Humble Bundle affair: pay what you want, designate how the money is allocated, pay more than the average for extras, grab some soundtracks for good measure, and then check back in a week when the bundle will "surprise" us with new additions.

To be honest, this grouping of games is a bit underwhelming. Reactions to Star Command were mixed (though Chris gave it a positive review), and Punch Quest was already a part of my Android library. The other titles are Time Surfer, Bloons TD 5, Ravensword: Shadowlands, and Carmageddon, none of which are really tickling my fancy. Regardless, the bundle is already doing just fine for itself, grossing more than $350,000 in its first day.
