5.0 out of 5 stars Great bundle of five "indie" games that all register on Steam. Worth it for Mark of the Ninja and Deadlight alone!, January 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 5-Game Arcade/Indie Pack [Download] (Software Download)
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. A 2D survival, side scrolling shooter that focuses on getting from point A to point B while using the environment to do most of the killing for you. Great graphics, very atmospheric, and really fun. This game does not require GFWL! Yaaay!

Mark of the Ninja - An absolutely GREAT 2D side scroller that focuses entirely on stealth and is the star of this pack. Interesting level design and outstanding graphics really bring the world to life. Just like the previous title, this one does not require GFWL.

Honestly for under $10 bucks, you shouldn't even think twice. Pick it up and enjoy!
