Four more games have been added to Humble Bundle 6. Those who have already purchased the bundle can access them through their download page, while those who purchase the bundle now and beat the average—which is $6.03 as of this writing—will also get these games. Soundtracks from all four games are also included. They can be redeemed on Steam and Ubuntu’s Software Center or downloaded directly.
The four games are BIT.TRIP RUNNER, Gratuitous Space Battles, Jamestown, and Wizorb. Every game except Wizorb was also included in Humble Bundle 4. The bundle will be available for one more week. So far, it has generated $1,490,705.38 in sales.
Analysis: While this bundle is solid, it doesn’t surpass Humble Bundle 5, but to be fair, that bundle did raise the bar rather high. I do have to criticize the fact that the new games are almost all repeats from a previous bundle. If you already own Humble Bundle 4, you won’t find much use for this batch of games unless you want Wizorb. Still, you could do far worse than this batch. BIT.TRIP RUNNER is a challenging runner/rhythm game, and Jamestown is a solid shoot-’em-up. Whether you’d enjoy Gratuitous Space Battles depends on how willing you would be to really sit down and learn the game and whether you’d enjoy a style of gameplay that involves inputting commands and then sitting back watching the action unfold. Wizorb, the newcomer to the bundle, is a brick breaker with a retro JRPG coat of paint on it. I don’t know if this would encourage a deluge of high spending donors to open their wallets like Humble Bundle 5 did, but being able to get all these games for less than $10 (unless the average is boosted higher) is still a good deal if you don’t own most of them already.
