The 8 games that are part of the Hooked on Multiplayer Humble Bundle come shy of a hundred dollars. But you can get them for a fraction of that cost, just $10.

That’s if you want to get all 8 games that are part of the bundle. There are, as you can see below, cheaper alternatives for those of you who don’t want to get all the games.

Pay $1 or more for Tricky Towers, Eon Altar Episode 1 and Primal Carnage: Extinction

Just one dollar for three multiplayer games that would set you back about $35.

1. Tricky Towers
  • Game type – multiplayer physics-based tower building game.
  • Release date – August 2016 for PS4, PC, Mac, and Linux.
  • Price – $14.99 on Steam.
  • About – Tricky Towers takes the familiar mechanic of placing tetromino bricks and provides a twist with the addition of real world physics and a competitive multiplayer focus. The goal is to build a tower higher, faster and better than your opponents. This is made more difficult by gravity's constant pull, the seemingly gentle breeze and the devilish dark magic attacks from the other players.

2. Eon Altar Episode 1

Your mobile device also offers you lines of dialogues to read out loud—hopefully in your own eccentric performance you've developed for your character.

The result of this unique game flow is that every player becomes a designer and a player at once, responsible for creating dastardly levels without ever feeling like they're really going into "level editor" mode.

Speaking about purchases, it’s worth pointing out that all of the games in this bundle are available on Steam (you’ll get a game key that you must redeem on Steam). It’s also worth pointing out that part of your purchase will go to charity and you get to choose where the money goes.
