Organizers for the Humble Indie Bundle have debuted new Android versions for several popular iOS games, including Adam Saltsman's iOS/online hit Canabalt HD, with its latest pay-what-you-want sale for indie releases.

Other titles released to Android for the first time and offered in the bundle include Ronimo Games' Swords & Soldiers, Secret Exit's Zen Bound 2, Lazy 8 Studios' Cogs, and Spiderweb Software's Avadon: The Black Fortress (available for Android tablets only).

Along with Canabalt HD -- which was ported by Kittehface Software -- those who purchase the bundle will also receive a special 2-player version of Canabalt for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It was previously available only on Winnitron indie game arcade cabinets.

As with previous Humble Indie Bundles, sales from this "Humble Bundle for Android 2" campaign are split between organizers, participating indie developers, digital rights advocacy non-profit Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Child's Play charity.

While this sale spotlights the new Android versions of the games, when users purchase the bundle, they also receive them on other platforms like Windows, Mac, and Linux (some appearing on Linux for the first time). The "Humble Bundle for Android 2" promotion ends in two weeks.

The first Humble Bundle for Android, which began on January 31st and also ran for two weeks, sold over 150,000 bundles and made $920,000 in revenue. It included titles like 2D Boy's World of Goo, Hemisphere Games' Osmos, and 11 bit studios' Anomaly: Warzone Earth.
