The latest pay-what-you-want compilation from Humble Bundle collects a wide variety of PC-combatible Neo Geo classics from SNK, and many of the featured games are playable within the Firefox and Chrome internet browsers.

The Humble Neo Geo Bundle features multiple entries in SNK’s long-running Metal Slug and The King of Fighters franchises, along with a handful of lesser-known greats released throughout the 1990s.

All bundle buyers receive DRM-free copies of SNK’s landmark one-on-one fighting games Art of Fighting 2, Fatal Fury Special, Samurai Shodown II, and The King of Fighters 2000, along with the kaiju brawler King of the Monsters, run-and-gun shooter Metal Slug, side-scrolling beat-’em-up Sengoku 3, and arcade-styled sports sim Baseball Stars 2.

All eight games are playable on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, and can be downloaded and played directly from Humble Bundle’s website via in-browser emulation software produced by DotEmu and officially licensed from GameTap.

Donors that exceed the bundle’s average purchase price will also get a collection of four .mp3-format soundtracks, the original Metal Slug, sequel Metal Slug 3, one-on-one fighter The Last Blade, competitive shmup Twinkle Star Sprites, overhead-view shooter Shock Troopers, horizontally scrolling shoot-’em-up Pulstar, golfing sim Neo Turf Masters, and The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match Final Edition.

Customers who pitch in $10 or more will unlock the bundle’s final rewards tier, which adds digital copies of sequels Shock Troopers 2nd Squad and Metal Slug X, in addition to the fighting games Samurai Shodown V Special, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, and The King of Fighters 2002 Ultimate Match.

Bundled copies of Metal Slug, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, The King of Fighters ’98, and The King of Fighters 2002 include digital codes redeemable for Windows-compatible Steam versions.

The Humble Neo Geo Bundle will be available for purchase through December 22.
