We were unable to find 6 Games: Hybrid Mind in Google Play, and is normally priced at $2.39 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

6 Games: Hybrid Mind is described as follows:
Six Great Games That Play Great Together

Six great games from Hybrid Mind Studios all come together within one low-priced app.

Orange You Glad
Orange You Glad features 20 levels of citrus madness, ten special power effects, and 25 unique and humorous items to avoid. Can you gobble enough oranges with your tongue to advance to the next level? It's not as easy as it sounds. Find out how to reach Orange Frenzy mode--it earns double points.

Power Vacuum

Power Vacuum is a fast-paced puzzle game. Help the atom recover its lost electrons on each level by carefully guiding the electrons around the white energy areas, but don't let them touch. There are 20 levels available, and ten are picked at random each time you play. You have 60 seconds per level to get the electrons to your goal.


Avoidal offers a simple but exciting premise: use your enemies to destroy as many blue stars as you can. Activate red seekers and yellow spikes, then get out of the way as they plummet towards the blue stars. Earn bonus points by destroying the blue stars as quickly as possible.


Contentric gives you just 10 seconds to collect the blue squares, refill your time limit, and avoid the black squares and borders. How long can you last? Contentric is a fast-paced agility game in which you avoid obstacles and collect items in a race against the clock. The obstacles you avoid are indirectly controlled by you, which adds a zen-like quality despite the game's frenzied pace.

Robot Reaction

See how many robots you can destroy in Robot Reaction, a fast-paced chain reaction game. The ten exciting levels with six different robot types support online leaderboards for high score competition. Each of the robots explodes in a different way, and you only get once chance in each round, so think quickly and choose carefully.

For the Twin
In For the Twin, a simple, fast-paced matching puzzle game, find your example's identical twin from among the dancing aliens. A game that both kids and adults can enjoy, it features six unique challenges with ten levels each, 30 different dancing aliens, an offbeat electronica soundtrack with seven original songs, and online leaderboards for competition. Who knew that aliens were all twist-and-turn tango twins?
6 Games: Hybrid Mind appears to be an Amazon Appstore exclusive, based on the splash across the Amazon Appstore main page. It is rated at 2.6 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

It's interesting that the blurb is that these are six great games from Hybrid Mind, but the developer is listed as DifferenceGames, LLC.

Based on the Amazon Appstore reviews, the games are quirky, at best. It makes sense, therefore, to combine them, as they may not do well on their own. The developer also uses Adobe Air, which many Android users hate with a passion.
