Get five Android games for whatever price you want

And if you pay more than the average, you'll get a sixth game. Plus, you get the desktop versions, too! It's the latest Humble Bundle, with some proceeds going to charity.

Don't let the name fool you: The Humble Bundle 4 for Android also includes Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of each game.
Don't let the name fool you: the Humble Bundle 4 for Android also includes Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of each game. Humble Bundle

Most game bundles have one thing in common: the games have been around awhile. They might be solid titles, sure, but many times they're so old that most gamers already have them.

Not this time. The Humble Bundle 4 for Android comes with five games, four of which are making their Android debut. In fact, they're not even available via Google Play yet, so you couldn't purchase them separately if you wanted to.

Don't have an Android device? Don't sweat it: you also get licenses for the Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of each game.

As with other Humble Bundles, this one works like this: you decide what price you want to pay. A penny? Sold. A dollar? Sold. $65.09? Sold. Whatever amount you deem fair, you can divvy it up among the developers, a couple of worthy charities, and the Humble folks.

If you pay at least $1, you'll get license keys for use with Steam, a convenient way to download and manage your games. And if you beat the average purchase price (currently $6.05), you'll get a sixth game: the award-winning oldie-but-greatie, Machinarium.

All the titles are blissfully free of DRM. So, what does your name-your-own-price buy you? Here's an overview in handy video form:

Good stuff, am I right? While you're figuring out what to pay, keep in mind that Machinarium for Android normally sells for $4.99, and Crayon Physics Deluxe for desktops costs $19.95. Personally, I think you'd be crazy not to pony up at least the average.

Your thoughts? What are you willing to pay game developers for their hard work, worthy charities for their good doings, and the Humble bundlers for putting it all together?
