Digital download compilation specialist Bundle Stars has just announced the All Stars Bundle, a nifty collection of eight highly ranked Steam games.
Including such notable luminaries as Tropico 4: Steam Special Edition, Magicka and System Shock 2, the only thing that makes the bundle more enticing is the price; the whole lot can be yours for just $1.99 (£1.59) for the next 24 hours.
You need to be quick though, because once the 24 hour period is over, the bundle will increase in price to $2.99.
Comprised of some of the most highly regarded games by the Steam community, your $1.99 gets you all of these cracking games as detailed below:
Tropico 4: Steam Special Edition (Windows/Mac)
The fourth game in the acclaimed strategy franchise from Haemimont Games, Tropico 4 has players balancing up the construction of their city alongside the political realities of being a charismatic dictator. Did we enjoy it? Why yes. Yes we did.
A brilliantly over-the-top action adventure that doesn't take itself too seriously, Magicka packs in single-player content and up to four-player co-op as wannabe wizards combine the elements to fashion new spells to wreak havoc upon all manner of evil foes. We loved it.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky (Windows)
A first-person survival shooter set in a post-apocalyptic Chernobyl, Clear Sky requires players to regard their aim and ability to survive in equal standing if they are to make it through in one piece. We rather liked it, as it turns out.
Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword (Windows)
With castles to siege, tactical takeovers to plan, mercenaries to hire, a huge single-player campaign and of course, staggeringly large multiplayer battles to take part in, its a fair assessment that there is a lot to do in Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword. Indeed, we were quite partial to it when we reviewed it, finding it to be both fun and engaging.
System Shock 2 (Windows/Mac/Linux)
Ah here we are; SHODAN, a proper cyber-nemesis if there ever was one. Don't give me any of that GLADOS rubbish, the primary antagonist in Looking Glass Technologies crushingly atmospheric action RPG remains to this day one of the most effective villains ever seen in a videogame. Throw into the mix a game which consummately combines FPS and RPG elements, multiple skill trees and a truly brilliant narrative, it soon becomes clear that System Shock 2 is simply overwhelmingly essential.
A point and click adventure with charm to spare, Deponia is heavily influenced by the likes of Douglas Adams, Matt Groening and the late, great Terry Pratchett. With a premium placed on entertaining dialogue, challenging puzzles and excellently hand-drawn visuals, Deponia seems like the perfect cure for the raft of overly-serious, face-shooting games that we've had recently.
To The Moon (Windows/Mac/Linux)
A deep and thoughtful meditation on death all wrapped up in a top-down, adventure RPG formula, To The Moon is a unique experience which casts the player as a pair of doctor's who enter the subconscious of a dying patient to grant him his last wish. Deeply affecting yet also challenging at the same time, this is essential stuff for anyone looking for a departure from the norm.
Prime World: Defenders (Windows/Mac)
A deft mixture of tower defence and collectible card game mechanics, Prime World: Defenders is an engaging yet different twist on the tower defence formula. We found it to be a solid title; both engaging and substantial.
So yeah, you can have all of that for just $1.99 (£1.59).
