Micron was actually on my wishlist and The Sea Will Claim Everything looks like it could be interesting, but I'll pass on Snooker. Still 5/7 games from a bundle that I want, and one maybe is not bad at all for a bundle.

grviper: Funny thing, this bundle has 3 "?" games, and the next three bundles are announced as "??? bundles". What if they went mad and made the next bundle 100% mystery?
That actually would tempt me.
The Sea is good.
A good preview of the game's mood is its freeware prequel

klaattu: The alt text for the next bundle is The Double Bundle, so this will probably be the name of the next bundle.
Double... Fine?

I'm definitely interested in The Sea Will Claim Everything.
Micron reminds me of Ichi, and I liked Ichi.
International Snooker ...
They seem okay, but not enough of an incentive for me to change my mind and buy the bundle despite my disinterest in the first four games. The Sea ... is supposed to be great, but I've already got it from BIAB1.
I fail to see the Lunar aspect to this bundle...

Also, why are people dismissive of the snooker game, honestly curious? True, it doesn't strike me as particularly good, but is there some established cheap/free snooker game that's outright better?
Hah, I love snooker, I guess they've timed it with the World Championship. Out of left field this bundle turned out pretty neat for me. Only The Sea I've had from Bundle in a Box (but I'm all for supporting the Kyratzes).
Echoing Spinorials question, are people dismissing the snooker game out of disinterest, or is it actually not great?

The content of most IR bundles have very little to do with the titles. The last bundle I can remember that actually related to the title was the Halloween bundle.

Well... http://www.celeris.com/virtual_pool_3_windows.html
A classic. Pool, snooker, career, trick shots... The only major issue is the online DRM, but there's a crack for that. Worked equally fine both on a tiny WinXP netbook and on a Win7 beast plugged into a TV.

The desire to play this game has to do a lot more with whether you find snooker video games interesting than with the quality of the game itself. It could be the best snooker video game in the world, and I'd still have little interest in playing it compared with other games in by backlog.
hm. Might get this now. Dungeon Hearts I was interested in before, and Micron seems like another hypnotical toy to play around with.
well sadly it will not tempt me, I was only interested in BTTF, as I have Pid and CC already :)

Having just played Dungeon Hearts, I'd recommend against it. It is not a good game. Clearly meant for a handheld device. And for a much younger audience.

I bought it for the snooker. The graphics and sound are good and the AI is not too bad. Plus it's also got Mac native binaries! Nothing else decent for Mac.

However no mouse-based cue stroke. Only set a power level and click. English works well, and I like the ball tracks (cheating) :).
