Honestly the only place where you can usually get a deal this awesome is with the Humble Bundle, or Indie Gala (or some of the other Amazon bundles).

Before I start off this little compressed review you should know that ALL of these game require Steam and some even require Games for Windows Live.

With that out of the way - every single one of the five included games is at least of good quality. Although I haven't played some of them in a while (rest assured, I did beat them all already), I will try to give you a rundown of each title in this bundle.

Toy Soldiers is a single player only strategy tower defense hybrid that has hundreds of plastic toy soldiers take on umm... Other plastic toy soldiers. There are plenty of levels and even bosses. There is also a (very) light RPG element thanks to all the upgrades you can (and will) have. My biggest complaint about Toy Soldiers is that it uses Games for Windows Live.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a fun little shooter game that is a mix of Metroid and Awesome... So that's like double the awesome because Metroid is pretty awesome in and of itself. Unlike the previous game, there are some cool multiplayer components.
Great environmental designs and just weird looking enemies, as well as plenty of ship upgrades keep the otherwise OK gameplay pretty interesting. Once again, my biggest complaint is the inclusion of GFWL.

Iron Brigade - Another Tower Defense game, and probably the weakest one in this bundle. What sets this apart (other than a mobile commander unit) is that you can clear it co-op with a friend. Once again, GFWL is required.

Deadlight - Aaaah, now THIS is a fun single player only game.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Deals I Have Seen January 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic deal and I recommend you get it if you don't have at least a couple of these games. I have not beat all these, but I have played a bit of each. Here is a quick rundown.

Deadlight- Alright game, probably the weakest of the bunch. Kind of like "Limbo" or "Shadow Complex" with zombies and annoying voice acting. But it doesn't have as creative puzzles and game play as either of those games. Still fun though.

Mark of the Ninja- This is the best of the pack I think. Its like "Shank" but stealthy. It has some great mechanics and is consistently addicting. Great little stealth game.

Toy Soldiers- It's a pretty basic tower defense but you can control what you build. Its a solid title but I haven't played too much of it.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet- This game is pretty awesome. Old School Metroid but your in a spaceship and you have to use all your tools to on your spaceship to progress. I like it, fun game for sure.

Iron Brigade- This is from Double-Fine, the people behind Psychonauts and Brutal Legend. It is also a tower defense and I personally like it more then Toy Soldiers. You get to control a Mech that you can customize the body, weapons, paint job, and a bunch more on.

So there you have it. I would strongly suggest getting this pack.

Have bought this pack because of the 'Mark of the Ninja' and the 'Deadlight', but other games are pretty cute too. Thanks Amazon for the deal.

I bought this package specially for Mark of the Ninja and the others were a bonus. All I can say is the purchasing was easy and the games were epic, I dont regret it at all even though I could have gotten Age of Empires instead!

Awesome game pack. I got this for almost nothing and Mark of the Ninja alone was worth more than what I paid.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best sale bundles you will find on Amazon August 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
This bundle will come up on sale for $7.49 probably twice a year. When it does (as it currently is), jump on it. Mark of the Ninja and Deadlight alone are worth far more than the price of entry, and ITSP is crazy good as well. Toy Soldiers and Iron Brigade are both good game, but are really just fluff in this bundle, IMO. You definitely wont find Mark of the Ninja for less than the price of this bundle, and Deadlight typically doesnt drop below the bundle price very often either (I think it was somewhere around $6 during the last Steam Summer sale).
Anyway, get this bundle. You will thank yourself later.

I haven't really played any of the other games, but Deadlight is awesome. It reminds me of Prince of Persia, the old one. In EGA.
