    This bundle, available until August 8th, 2011 (4 PM Pacific Time). allows you to set any price that you’d like to pay for five independently developed (Indie) games, and give parts (customizable by you) to charity. All the games are compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Buying the bundle also allows you to play Minecraft for free until August 14th.

    Including the Frozen Byte pack, this is actually the forth Humble Indie Bundle. This time the games included are: Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammefight, and “And Yet It Moves”.

    Crayon Physics Deluxe 2D

    Crayon Physics Deluxe sandbox/puzzle game, where objects you draw (bridges, blocks, balls, etc.) are transformed into real objects that use the same sense of gravity and physics that our world uses. It has over 70 levels, where the goal is to make a small ball reach a star. This is done by making use of the physics in the world to knock the ball into the star.

    Also included is a level editor.

    Cogs


    The second game included is Cogs. This is a 3D game that focuses on the use of sliding tiles to complete puzzles and construct objects. It has three modes. Inventor Mode: which uses sliding tiles to construct gears, pipes, balloons, chimes, wheels, props and more.

    Time Challenge mode, which is similar to inventor mode, but puts a time limit on the puzzles. Lastly, move challenge mode, which only gives you 10 moves to find a solution.

    VVVVVV


    The third game is “VVVVVV”. This game focuses on your ability to alter gravity up or down, meaning you all towards the ceiling. The storyline has you rescue some of your subordinates who have been lost in space. You find them by searching through space, which includes using your gravity reversing powers to avoid spikes, obstacles, and other strange moving creatures.

    Hammer Fight


    The forth game is Hammerfight. In this game, you control a flying machine that uses various medieval weapons, like a mace, swords, an ax, and of course, a hammer. By rotating the mouse it allows you to swing the weapon around and bash it into enemies and obstacles.

    And Yet it Moves


    The fifth, and last game included is called “And Yet it Moves”. This game is another game that allows you to alter the gravity of the environment. You use the left and right arrows to rotate the gravity to the left or right side, or the up key to completely flip the gravity. You move and jump using the WASD keys.
    A large part of the game is finding ways to make it through areas, up to platforms, and past rocks without falling too far too fast and causing your character to die. There are also more advanced obstacles in the game, such as lighting things on fire, moving bats around (which fly to the opposite side of the gravity), etc. Luckily, the game has many check points, allowing you to easily start back from where you left off in case you should die.
