Briefly read the description of Field Runners, it seems to be a Tower Defense game? If I already have my share of TD games via Defense Gride and Orcs Must Die!, would I enjoy it?

This single has been topping the music chart in korea for the past 3 weeks, a very catchy song i must say.

I've watched this music video 5 times, yet I still can't decide if it's the worst or the best music video I've ever seen.

It's definitely Tower Defense. In fact, it's a very Tower Defensey Tower Defense game. Basically 'okay here's 1 bad guy, here's 2, here's 4, here's 16, here's 32...' that's pretty much all there is to it. Just lay down traps for more and more and more bad guys.

Mildy amusing for a bit but gets old really fast.

Then again, I think Tower Defense is an extremely tired and overdone me too genre full of games slapped together to make a quick buck so consider my opinion based on that.

Got it for free from Amazon. Played for like an hour and got really bored, since nothing ever got past. It's one of the tower defense games without any defined paths. You get a huge rectangle, and you build your towers into paths. I usually don't like those.

My favorite Android one is HexDefense, but there's really only one really useful weapon.

I'm with you on that. Not much innovation since The Horde (1994, 3DO/PC). Below is the shortest least yawn-worthy introduction. It was a damn fine game, and slightly ahead of it's time. It combined city planning, defense planning, resource growth and defense, as well as action.

That actually doesn't look half bad. I think I would rather play that than most modern tower defense games. They could probably re-release as an indie game now without even having to do much to it.

Edit: Okay I looked it up and I am disturbed out by the Kirk Cameron cover image.

Thinking of old games that I'd like to have on a tablet, reminds me of RoboSport (1991). Yes sure, Frozen Synapse is reinterpretation. But I much preferred the style of RoboSport. You plan actions of a small team of robots in advance then everyone (networked multiplayer/AI) executes their action simultaneously. It also had a very cool game save/replay feature. It was in the 3 games that I kept on my 386 laptop's 80 MB drive all the time, the others being Civ and Dune 2 (Though I now keep FreeCiv and OpenDune on my phone... go figure). Hmm, I could DosBox it...

Oddly I cannot find any youtube videos that show it off, despite it being a Maxis game.

About HBfA#3, in my opinion, Spirits looks good and I would go BTA, but I think the BTA price will be higher than -75% of this game on Steam, so I will pay humble $1, as I've got Spacechem and Uplink. CAG all the way.
They'll also add another game on start of 2nd week. I would hold with judging this bundle before until they finally add it. Anyway, I guess it will be RUSH, since it has been discounted a few days ago as daily deal and two other Two Tribes games were included in previous bundles for Android.

I don't remember Field Runners being in a bundle, but I know Uplink and Spacechem were in previous Humble Bundles. I'll probably buy it for a dollar to have BIT.TRIP.BEAT and Face Runners, while skipping the BTA. All of the Android bundles have been pretty crappy IMO, but they're decent buys for $1.


I think Field Runners was part of the 10 cent sale awhile back, not in a bundle now that I think about it. Same with Spirit too I think.

But yeah I guess for a buck it ain't bad, I'm so used to the $5 Indie Royale's and the $6-$7 BTA that I was thinking the bundle would be $5 +

The other thing that bothered me about the Hmble Android bundles was that they wouldn't show up in your App list on Google Play (since there was no way to redeem them over there I don't think) , so they were a pain in the ass to keep updated. I really like having all my Android stuff in 1 place. Any word on whether that's changed or not?

That 1C bundle is massive, but the only things I'd want from it are to complete Kings Bounty, and Pneumbra which I didn't know was 1C. If anybody already has those consider me!

And yeah, welcome to the next year on Steam Gifts.

They released an android app to version check (check your Android HIB download page) and let you know if you're up to date or not. If not it opens your browser and downloads the never version. Not slick, but much better than not having it. I'm used to haveing a hodge podge of Play Store, Amazon Store, and a few sideloaded things (occasionally Play Store thinks my Nook is unworthy when it can handle something.) I've gotten quite a few nice Free App of the Day from Android, and they had some different $0.10 sales than Play store, though usually its shovelware.

There's an Android Humble Application that tells you the status of your games: installed, not installed, update available.

Not going to get myself too excited about the latest Humble Android bundle. Last one turned out to be wholly underwhelming after I played the games.


Couldn't be worse than the last indie gala mobile. The Cthulhu game, the only I was really interested in, has the worst controls I've ever dealt with on a phone and it is practically unplayable because of that. The horror title is awkward at best and only scared me once: It was in my pocket and screamed, I was unaware it was still on.

Nope. I don't think that's currently possible. A few Kickstarters (including Shadowrun) hit this wall (it's the same with that half-eaten fruit store).

Oh, I won the 1c indiegala pack. DtS is near the top of my playlist. I've got Cryostasis on Gamers Gate too.

A steam gifts auto word change would be swell. I don't know, maybe something like, "i won that game from the La Brea tar pits."

"I've entered the La Brea tar pits hundreds of times and I've never won anything."

Hey does Crysis games go on sale other than the seasonal sale? I just finished Crysis that I picked up from the recent summer sale and I'm kicking myself for not purchasing Warhead and the sequel. I'm normally not the biggest fan of fps but this game was pretty awesome.
