25 Top Paid Games for September

Posted by Dan Mousavi On September - 8 - 2011

Hello and welcome to another Toplist. This month we saw a huge rise in free games and while the sum of paid games didn’t really drop, they are starting to get overshadowed by the huge quantity of quality free apps on Android. Of course the reason for that is that there are still no useful ways to actually pay for content. Since Android Market still requires a credit card, a payment method that by my guess 90% of europeans don’t have or won’t use on a mobile device (even I don’t have a personal credit card and Dennis Zimpel is using a prepaid credit card that he got just for Android). There was hope this month, because Vodafone started to allow carrier billing on Android in Germany, but they screwed it up by enforcing a policy, where your device has to be bought through them (the IMEI gets bound to your contract when you buy a new device) which makes it totally useless for a huge chunk of german Android users who were ready to buy a simcard just to be able to pay. Most people I know buy their device without a contract, especially developers usually have self imported dev devices through events like Google I/O or ordered them through the Developer Program.
So there still is no way for any of my creditcardless friends and readers to actually buy stuff from the market, so it is no wonder that more and more developers start to develop ad-supported games, if it is the only way to actually make money on Android. I’m still hearing rumors about general carrier billing in Germany for Android, but they are still rumors, so we’ll have to wait and see when the paid situation will get better.

Sorry for the little rant, it’s not all bad at the moment. There are still wonderful new game concepts that are coming out for Android, here are the best 25 Games we found this month.
