I just noticed (and couldn't find any other posts on) the Google Play End of Summer Sale. Ends Labor Day. Still going on, ends ???

The not-quite-complete sale page.

Amazon Free App of the Day: Quell Reflect (Wed, 6 Sept, till midnight PDT)

Games:

Apps:

Other Notables:

There might be other deals lurking. Max Payne Mobile isn't listed on the sale page oddly.

Might want to note in the OP that Zen Bound 2 and Spirits were both in Humble Bundles (to give people a moment to think twice, preventing double purchases).

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

I don't even have max Payne in my play store. Searched for it and got nothing. I have a AT&T galaxy s3. Thanks for the info though, going to get swift key and spirits. I almost upped my HIBfor android 3 donation amount just cause spirits looked fun but decided against it hoping for a sale like this. I wish there was another 10 cent sale as I missed out on that one, but this sale will suffice.

For those of you who didn't know (like me) there are two versions of Swiftkey 3. One for phones and one for tablets. Yes, the phone one works on tablets but it isn't really optimized for it.

Also, Crystal Defenders is down to $0.99 from $1.26. I am tempted to get it, but I hear it has a lot of crashing issues. Can anyone who has a touchpad with CM9 on it comment?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

No CM9 here but game does have an online check every time you play.

Thanks OP, picked up Max Payne, works great on my Nexus 7!

Thanks! It looks tempting; I'll probably bite.

Thanks for the heads up. Went ahead and bought crystal defenders.

I my haste of putting together the post together, I hadn't noticed it was SquareEnix (and supposedly related to FF:Tactics). Thanks!

Might want to note in the OP that Zen Bound 2 and Spirits were both in Humble Bundles (to give people a moment to think twice, preventing double purchases).


Thanks. Done. I also reshuffled the lists to bubble the big name stuff to the top.

Thank OP, Picked up NOVA 3 and Swiftkey. Too bad Gangstar Rio is not available for T-mobile Galaxy S II otherwise I would pick that up too

That Play store whitelist/blacklist stuff is annoying. I have sometimes circumvented by buying and sideloading the apk from another device. That $0.10 was in December, I'm feeling confident that they'll have it again. The big publisher titles are somewhat the star of this sale, as those are less likely to break a buck. Some other deals are out of cycle; I picked up GTA III for $0.99 in March (St. Patty's Day?) The Greenlight Bundle added Android versions of Ichi, Samurai II Vengeance, Gunman Clive and Paper Monsters. CAG Thread if those interest you enough for $5.

Thanks! I updated the price. I have swiftkey 3 and a handful of others. My personal favorite on 7" tablets is Thumb Keyboard (not on sale, got as Amazon FOTD) as I like the extended layouts an ability to add a row of number keys at the top.

It's not part of this sale, but Zombies, Run is also on sale from $8 -> $3. I've been waiting for a sale on it, so I grabbed it, but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. But I know a lot of people who seem to love it as they run. Hoping it can help get me in shape a bit.

From the sale, I might pick up Crystal Defenders and Spirits.

Max Payne is not listed on the deal page because it actually is not part of this deal, but is a seperate Rockstar deal for android and ios. It does end on Labor Day as well.

I'll probably get a Nexus 7 soon but I don't currently have an Android device. Is there any way to buy something without an Android device?

You can register your google account on a friend's device. Even after you remove your account so he can't put his sticky hands all over your email you can still access the store on the web. I used to have an Android tablet. After wiping the device I left it attached to my account so that I can grab things that aren't compatible with my phone if I think I'll want them in the future.

If you don't have access to someone else's device and are a bit more computer savvy you may be able to access the store by downloading the Android SDK and using the emulator. Google around for more info on that.

I found this thread. Its called the "Android games ongoing sales." http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=254076

Nobody has touched it for almost a year though.

Edit: I also found this one called "The Official Android thread". It seems to get more traffic than the other one but its not dedicated only to sales. http://www.cheapassg...ghlight=android

Regarding threads: I had poked around but I didn't see any particularly relevant threads, so I started this one. I've been around the PCDD threads for a few months and it seems customary for each major sale to have it's own thread (e.g. GamersGate Summer sale (4 weeks), U-Play $1 sale (4 days), Origin (5? days), etc). I find this handy for first post links as well as focused discussion. Per your implicit suggestion I put an announcement in the The Android Thread to notify interested CAGs that lurk there (as I had done in very social Steam Thread).

I hope you find something good in the sale! :grouphug:

Anyone know how good it is? I mean, it looks like a fantastic GTA clone; but it seems to have mixed ratings...

Yeah, I prefer when each sale has its own individual thread. I dont like how the indie bundles have their own thread but they keep updating when a new bundle comes out. Then you have to read the OP and search through the rest of the pages to find where people are talking about the current bundle.

Not totally the right thread for this but some EA games actually downloaded and installed on my HP touch pad with CM9. I was surprised game of life actually worked. Hot Pursuit and ME3 also installed but not NBA Jams or Dead Space. Hopefully the compatibility will come soon for those as well.
Note: Only game of life is on sale.

I noticed there was a slightly different version of The Game of Life -- $0.87 (EA Nederland BV) Based on URL parsing the other version seems to be NA for North America, this version is ROW (Rest of World?) This appears legit. Last update date is the same as the other, but it is one bug rev lower (1.2.07 vs 1.2.08). Added to OP under "Other Notables"
