So the BTA is now at 5.8 dollars and several of these are free on Google Play Store. Do we assume these are ad-free versions?

I had King of Dragon Pass a couple of years ago and it was pretty good (if you like text based games).

I wonder if there's a resale opportunity for the top tier that's pushing the average up???

As the other poster said, many of these are free so will be giving this one a miss.

So it looks like any freemium games are ad-free (still containing IAPs).

I've just tried the Wargamer Space Wolf game and it's a typical turn based affair, so if that's your thing, it's worth a look. Getting 20 booster packs is much better belle than in-game but of course you have to like it enough. Of course, you can play it for a few days to see if you like it?

One final point is that I just found out that IGN bought Humble recently. I wonder if that's going to change the way the deals are laid out...

Humble was good while it lasted. Maybe even more mainstream now (with prominent IGN cross-selling?), we'll see

Thats being misreported somewhat. IGN didn't buy them Zif Davies did. They own a bunch of companies,including IGN and now Humble Bundle.

According to this, IGN is the company that bought them, in terms of structure of their org:
polygon.com/201…dle
"the IGN acquisition could present conflicts of interest, since IGN may want to produce editorial coverage of games that Humble Bundle is publishing"

...back to the games, Avalanche is actually not available on Playstore at the moment (does this make it a Humble 'exclusive'?)

Defense Zone 2HD (BTA Tier) seems to have been superceded by Defense Zone 3HD and they've even brought out an 'Ultra' version. I'm not sure how I'm meant to be wowed by buying games that have been superceded twice?

I love Android games but I can't justify spending money on Freemium games. I know some cost money (Tempest is £5.49!!!) but this and the Humble app experience (a 3yr battle against problem after problem) have put me off.

BTA tier has shot up to over $6 now.
