The Spiral Groove Bundle is this week’s tantalising collection of hard-hitting titles from Indie Royale. Four games -- Sniper Elite V2, Gatling Gears, Bloody Trapland and Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death -- from developers both large and small. There's also a great bonus album from Dj CUTMAN - Lost Beats and Found Friends - for those who beat the $8 price.

Sniper Elite V2
Rebellion’s Sniper Elite V2 is a first person shooter, set in World War 2, that emphasises stealth and precision over the usual all-guns-blazing approach of the contemporary video game shooter. Described by Digital Spy as “well thought out…with much to love [for any] headshot enthusiast or stealth fan” the game tracks each bullet fired in slow-motion as it twists through the air, even providing grisly X-Ray visuals to show a bullet’s entry point on its target. Gruesome perhaps, but the presentation raises the pressure in a game that eschews corridor fire fights in favour of tense ducks and crawls through the rubble of a falling Berlin.
Sniper Elite V2 is available for Windows via Steam only.

Gatling Gears

Developed by the team behind the award-winning Greed Corp, Gatling Gears from Vanguard Games is a steampunk shoot ‘em up featuring collapsing land, walker units and warring factions. Cast as Max Brawley, players must work to defeat a monopolistic corporation that is depleting the world of its natural resources in a game about which IGN said “mowing down hordes of tiny men ... is just as satisfying as it sounds”. Equally enjoyable in both single and co-operative multiplayer modes, Gatling Gears is a robust and varied twin-stick, mech-based shooter.
Gatling Gears is available for Windows via Steam only.

Bloody Trapland

Bloody Trapland is a fast-paced multiplayer platform game from 2Play Studios featuring over 100 levels filled with dangerous traps and risky jumps. Playable with up to four friends both online and locally in an expansive co-operative campaign, the game comes with online scoreboards, three different game modes, four playable characters and dozens of hours’ worth of gameplay. A challenging game, despite its simplistic visuals Bloody Trapland even won the 2011 Game Design Challenge.
Bloody Trapland is available for Windows, both DRM-Free and via Desura.

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death

Based on the popular, long-running 2000AD series of comic books, Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death, also from Rebellion, sees players take to the 22nd Century streets of Mega-City One in a mission to take out the nefarious Death Cult, a group plotting to free the evil Dark Judges from their holding chamber in a Justice Department penitentiary. You play as the titular Judge, blasting your way through 11 levels’ worth of vampires and zombies. A co-operative mode and a clutch of unlockable arcade missions combine with 16-player online multiplayer to deliver a hefty dose of rough justice to every PC.
Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is available DRM-free for Windows and via Steam.

The Bundle Album Bonus

The bundle bonus album is from Dj CUTMAN, the pioneer chiptune producer. Bringing years of experience as an audio engineer into the DJ world, CUTMAN samples classic video games infusing his creations with dubstep, electro, hiphop and soul influences. Bundle bonus album Lost Beats and Found Friends represents the very best of his work: old school but effortlessly fresh. Beat the $8 price to get this bonus album.

As ever, the bundle is cheaper the sooner that you purchase its (unless, of course, some kind purchaser opts to lower the price for others) although there is tremendous value here whatever price you pay.

Lot of hate in the reviews about the admittedly nasty EA/Origin DRM ******** - that IS a drag and is hands down the biggest detractor from this game. HOWEVER, it is also likely the only real problem with it - it's a very fun and enjoyable game with high production standards and polish. I think the peope rating it a 1 or a 2 are being a little mellodramatic. I hate EA, I hate DRM and these are valid arguements, but the game is quite fun, and while Vanguard could have chosen a better publisher than EA (like... anyone else?) The game is still pretty great.

Besides the fact that the game requires a Steam account, it also requires an EA account AND comes with an activation limit!

It seems amazing, graphically impressive, and quite addictive too :-)
By the way: an EA game sold in a DRM-free shop, OMG! Incredible!

Unfortunately, Desura is not a "DRM-free shop". There are many games with DRM on Desura.
