Grab 7 Cool Metroidvanias For Only $14 In Humble’s New Bundle

We’re less than halfway through 2024, and it’s already been a great year for Metroidvania fans and Steam Deck owners. If you want a few games on deck to play after Animal Well, Humble’s Metroidvania Mania bundle lets you grab as many as seven great metroidvanias for as little as $14. All seven games are Steam Deck-verified, so you’ll have no problem unlocking new abilities and charting deeper reaches on the go.

The Metroidvania Mania bundle comes with seven excellent games that all take after the genre’s namesakes, the Metroid and Castlevania series–in particular, Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The gist is usually the same, as you adventure around a vast map, defeating bosses and collecting abilities that let you then find your way into new areas you couldn’t previously reach. Each game has its own specific and unique take on the idea, though, providing plenty of reasons to keep going back. And as is common in the genre, secrets abound in each, which will scratch your itch to explore and uncover everything each game has to offer.

The headliner in the bundle is Axiom Verge, a 2015 retro title that wears its old-school Metroid inspirations on its sleeve.

If you pay enough, you can also nab its sequel, Axiom Verge 2, along with a bunch of other games.
