    How wants to play a PC port of a mobile game? It's like the downsides of a console port x100.

    With the exception of Uplink tho, that started on the PC.

    I'm actually pretty disappointed with the Android port of Uplink. I was hoping they'd have redesigned it somewhat for touch, but it feels pretty much like a straight port. Still fun though..

    I've already IM'd with the Bundle folks about listing Frameworks in the Linux requirements (like Java, Mono, etc) in the future for those sensitive to license issues.

    Of this Bundle, SpaceChem uses Mono. You've been warned.

    Oh no, not mono! This is going to ruin everything!

    ... Yes, with the exception of Uplink. And Spacechem. And Bit.Trip beat.
    And let's ignore the fact that a port from mobile is actually much better than a console port because mobile control schemes on most games are not that different from PC. (touchscreen=mouse, onscreen keys=.... keys)

    But yes, two of the games are VERY high quality mobile "ports". So better write off the whole thing.

    Don't forget you can tailor how much money goes where, even among the developers.

    Please don't use the "PC" connotation, it does not really mean anything and is *usually* pushed by Apple or Microsoft...

    PC, acronym, Personal Computer

    "Any general-purpose computer whose size, capabilities, and original sales price make it useful for individuals, and which is intended to be operated directly by an end-user with no intervening computer operator."

    It is perfectly fair to say something is a "PC game" as compared to a game released for a console or some sort of mobile device. The real problem is Microsoft (and to an extent Apple) trying to push the idea that PC only means Windows.
