All Stars Bundle 4: Nine Fine Games
UK game publisher Focus Multimedia‘s game bundle site, Bundle Stars, is offering a new bundle, the All Stars Bundle 4. This bundle features nine games, complete with Steam codes, including a number of indie favorites:
by Shiro Games
Evoland does for console RPGs what A Pixel Story did for platformers. As you progress through the game, you’ll not only unlock a history of RPGs inspired by the Zelda, Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior series, you’ll also unlock a history of game mechanics and even graphics styles, from 8-bit to 16-bit and beyond.
by DrinkBox Studios
This Mexican pop culture Metroidvania mash-up features slick gameplay, a terrific cast of characters and beautiful animation, making it one of IGR writer Callabrantus’ personal favorite indie games of 2013.
by Black Shell Games
A roguelike action game with randomly generated dungeons and tons of character classes to unlock. IGR’s DaMaGe82 called its fast pace a “white knuckle ride,” though he was less impressed by its classic arcade-inspired sound effects.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
by CI Games
This entry in Polish developer CI Games‘ Sniper series adds new gear and new features to its stealth-based, story-driven gameplay.
by Double Eleven
The PixelJunk series of games tends to run hot and cold, but this cavernous shooter is perfect for wall-dodging, puzzle-solving, scientist-rescuing action. Bring in a friend for local co-op action and the speedy spelunking gets even more manic.
PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate
by Double Eleven
Another PixelJunk game, this one has you protecting a tiki-themed forest from monsters in a hands-on tower defense game. What it lacks in innovation it makes up for with solid execution; an abundance of game modes, challenges and levels provide hours, days and weeks of game time. If that’s not enough, there’s also local and online co-op!

Originally released on the now defunct Xbox Live Indie Marketplace, this zombie apocalypse-themed RPG was one of our Top 10 Best Indie Games of 2014. IGR editor Indie-Game-Freak praised the game’s unforgiving, learn-by-failure approach and a subjective camera feature that zooms automatically into each scene’s emotional high point, “a startling feat of coding and cinematographic framing.”
Forget about the Gran Turismo and Forza series; this racing sim focuses on classic ’60s and ’70s muscle cars, like the Ford Mustang, the GT40 and the greatest of them all, the Shelby Cobra.
Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey Remastered
by Bacon Bandit Games
Word games and RPGs: two great tastes that taste great together, just like pizza…and Death? Help the Grim Reaper get pizza in this updated version of a classic game. As IGR’s Adam Fimio put it, “If you think the only thing keeping you from playing Scrabble more often is a lack of immortal combat, Grimm’s Journey Remastered has you covered.”
Evoland, PixelJunk Shooter, PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate, and LetterQuest: Grimm’s Journey remastered are all available for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Overture is available for both Windows PC and Mac, while the other four games are Windows-exclusive.
All nine games in this bundle must be redeemed on Steam.
