Another week, another weekly Humble Bundle – and this one’s all about games from Japanese developers. Naturally, this means that some of them are off their trolleys.
For the price of $Whatever, you get your hands on Unholy Heights, One Way Heroics, and Gigantic Army. Unholy Heights is an okay-ish management game in which you play as the devil running a housing complex for monsters. One Way Heroics is an excellent one-way roguelike that’s perfect for a 20-minute break. Gigantic Army is a side-on mech shooter that is quite a lot like Cybernator or Front Mission: Gun Hazard.
Opt to pay $6 or more for your Humble Bundle and you also get cavern shooter Pixeljunk Shooter, action RPG Ys: Origin, and fast-paced arena brawler Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae. Which is sort of like Devil May Cry‘s Bloody Palace mode, if you remember that.
Finally, if you drop $10 or more, you’ll get the ludicrously fast-paced SHMUP Astebreed. It looks bright and pretty, and it doesn’t appear to be a bullet hell game. Haven’t played it, but it’s reportedly a bit of alright.
Not a bad Humble Bundle, honestly, and probably worth considering if you’ve got a bit of cash to spare.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
