Looking for four awesome indie games at a great price? Well, IndieBundle.org has just released the Perilous Puzzle Bundle which includes Spoids, Hairy Tales, and Great Permutator all for $5. And if you grab the Bundle+ for just $2 more, you get the much anticipated Wyv And Keep: The Temple of the Lost Idol. $25 worth of indie games for just $7! 

Each game is redeemed on Desura and all four come with the Steam Greenlight Guarantee (if the game is released on Steam, you will receive a free download key for Steam).

Spoids:

As the commander of the Defense Space Station, respond to distress calls and travel from planet to planet using your powerful arsenal to buy enough time to complete each mission. With the unique objective based system, Spoids offers a challenge for all levels of ability.There are hours of gameplay including the story missions, unlimited wave mode, four medals to unlock at each planet, and a host of enemy and weapon types to master. Each mission is completely voice acted by a set of memorable characters that need your help.

Hairy Tales:

A “fiendishly difficult” puzzle/action game that has been praised for its creativity and multiple solutions, Hairy Tales combines tile-dragging mechanics with fast furious action. It’s inspired by ChuChu Rocket and Lemmings, and tells the zany adventures of a group of not too bright folk spirits, as you help them puzzle out evil conundrums in their mission to save their tile-based world from sickening corruption.

Great Permutator:

Just a puzzle. Hard and tricky. You should build a complex system of conveyors and action blocks to move colored boxes in right order. If you like clever engineering puzzles like LightBot, Manufactoria and SpaceChem, you should like this game.

(Bundle+) Wyv And  Keep: The Temple of the Lost Idol:

Wyv and Keep is a grid-based action/puzzle game following two young treasure hunters into the land of Amazonia. Take control of the duo and use teamwork to solve mind-bending puzzles, navigate challenging action sequences, and find hidden riches deep within an ancient temple. Play by yourself, with a friend locally on one keyboard, or online, dodging fiendish traps, evading cannibalistic pygmies, shopping for hats, and even exploring an active volcano. Even create and share your own puzzles with the included cartographer.

 

Act quickly as this bundle will only be available for 6 weeks! IndieBundle.org

And that's it...survived the last level (loved the way there's no timer, really didn't think I was going to make it).

Any plans for more levels? I'd definitely be happy to pay for an expansion?

Loving this game - a great tower defence game and many of the towers feel different to the "standard" set you get.

Just one point - I've seen a couple of messages about pressing a key (fast forward and show flightpath) but it doesn't say which key it is and I can't find anything in the options to see / change what the key bindings are.

It should show in the video screen that plays next to the message. I wonder if the game is not showing the videos because of specific codecs you may have installed.

But L-Shift should show the flight paths and L-Ctrl or middle mouse button should speed up the game.

Ah yes - I missed that as I tend to read the text. To be honest even with your pointer I nearly missed it. Worth adding the key's to the text too I think.

Slick game. It's really, really hard though, hard as your mom's boiled spuds. Probably not recommended as your first TD game - you'll wake up dazed, battered, and bruised (like what happened when your mom caught you messing with the guinea pig).

Only played a few levels, but there doesn't seem to be any maze building or juggling (thumbs up). There's no meta game; it's just a list of levels to click and play (thumbs down). It doesn't seem to innovate in any way; it's just a standard TD (thumbs down). But it is smooth and frantic and cheap (like your mom), so all you TD fans should probably get it.

Come back when you're older, Luke. Your synopsis would have been okay had you not ruined it with your... *ahem*, "humor". Don't speak like this to anybody, ever again.

Anybody in real life who would so much as chuckle to this is only doing so to avoid making you feel awkward and stupid, and anybody outside of your social clique who has heard your "jokes" more than likely has formed a very low opinion of you.

This game is definitely something that needs to be played. It is very refined and the controls are smooth. The only thing that would make it better is if they had a mobile version for iOS or Android so I can play it on the go. Keep up the good work and I hope you make more games.

Really boring, ordinary tower defence.
