30 Top Free games for April & May

Posted by Dan Mousavi On May - 9 - 2011

Google started with in app purchases this month and because of that it gets really hard to decide, if a title that claims to be free is really a free game or if it has in app purchases, that make it unplayable without paying something.
We played most of the listed games long enough to ensure, that you get a good portion of the game for free, but we cannot guarantee anymore, that a game that seems to be free won’t cost money down the line through in app purchases. Another problem we have is with wrongly labeled games like the unlisted Lord of Magic, the game is essentially a demo version with only three levels, but since the game is good and should have been on the paid games list, I kept it at the bottom.
If any of the listed free games is nothing more then a glorified demo version down the line, please let us know in the comments and in the market comments, it is now impossible for us alone to guarantee that a game that looks like a free game is not a cuckoo egg, so we need your help in exposing them.

Amazon Appstore launches with Angry Birds Rio for free

Posted by Dan Mousavi On March - 22 - 2011

Today Amazon launched it’s own appstore in the US and as a launch special, you can download Angry Birds Rio for free in the first 24 hours.
Sadly, it only works in the US at the moment and a credit card is required to download anything, even the free games.
To download the Amazon appstore, visit http://amzn.to/getamazonappstore from your phone.
To browse the Amazon Webstore from your PC, visit http://amazon.com/appstore .
Amazon plans to give away a paid app every day, we’ll see how it fares in the long run, but early impressions are bad, most apps will cost more than on the Android market, which makes the trouble to go through Amazon not worth it. If they can’t get exclusives (and we truly wish they don’t, exclusive games suck) or alternative payment methods, this appstore will flop as much as all the other markets out there besides the official one.
