Pay what you want for this Android (and desktop!) game bundle

Some proceeds go to charity, and in addition to the Android versions of these games, you get them for Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. What's not to like?

Humble Bundles are renowned for offering name-your-own price indie game collections. But mostly they've been computer games. That changes today--sort of.

The Humble Bundle for Android comes with three games: Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Edge, and Osmos. If you were to purchase them separately, they'd cost you $10.47.

Buy the bundle, however, and you can pay whatever you want. A buck. A penny. Twenty bucks. A portion of the proceeds (whatever portion you want, in fact) can go to charity, so it's not crazy to open your wallet a bit more than you otherwise might.

But wait, there's more. If you pay more than the average purchase price (currently $5.94), you get a bonus game: World of Goo, which normally sells for $4.99 all by itself.

All four games have 4.5- or 5-star user ratings on Android Market. Of them, I've played only World of Goo, which is singularly awesome, but obviously the other titles are just as awesome in their own right.

Now for the icing on the cake: The bundle includes not only the Android versions of these games, but also the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. That brings the overall value to around $60. You even get the game soundtracks, a nice little perk.

As with all Humble Bundles, you can decide how your payment gets divided among the developers, a pair of charities (Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation), and the bundlers. Pretty cool arrangement.

If money is tight, here's your chance to score some terrific games on the cheap. And if you're feeling philanthropic, here's your chance to score some terrific games and help some worthy causes. Win-win.

By the way, the bundle is available for the next two weeks.
