The latest PC and Android Humble bundles are both excellent value. Buy them. Hang on, though. Does this mean I really should be taking six?
On the PC side, the latest bundle highlights several excellent Indie games, covering SteamWorld Dig, Hammerwatch and Gunpoint in the basic tier, Papers, Please, Gone Home and LUFTRAUSERS in the secondary tier and early access to Prison Architect in the tertiary tier.
For those truly flush with cash, there’s also the $65 Humble Indie Bundle 12 Entertainment System, with physical items such as T-Shirts and a 3.5″ Floppy Disk if you’re really keen.
I adored Steamworld Dig back when I reviewed its 3DS incarnation, and Papers, Please is often held up as an exemplar of minimalist storytelling within gaming (shameful admission: I hadn’t played it until I bought this bundle), so that side of things is pretty easy value.
On the Android side of the fence, Humble Mobile Bundle 7 offers Heroes of Loot, The Tiny Bang Story and Color Zen Premium in the entry level tier and Kingdom Rush Frontiers, Sorcery! and Horn in the secondary tier. I reviewed Kingdom Rush Frontiers in its iOS incarnation a good while back, and it’s still an excellent game by itself, with the current secondary tier asking price just tipping over $4.

I’ll take three highlights products that are not only discounted, but which I reckon are good value as well. Cheap isn’t always the same thing as great.
