Carmageddon launched early. The promo version will be pulled after a day. I don't know if that means from the time it went up, or end of day May 10 which was the original launch date. If it's not available for your particular device you can try an app called market helper (must be rooted. not on play store) or an Android PC emulator like bluestacks.


Thanks for the heads up about Carmageddon. I definitely made sure to pull a copy. On a random note, I wonder if this will stay in our app archives? I have pulled full promos from Google Play in the past and those remained available for my future use.

The SCI guys released Carmageddon on GOG/iOS/Android free for their Reincarnation backers. We got mailed GOG codes, but the AppStores don't support that so the "free day" is fulfills that. Thus I expect it'll stick around in your Play Store library.

Long time android users probably have it from the $0.10 sale back in Dec 2011. ...they need an updated version of that sale...

I hate that sale, it was just before I got with the times and got a smart phone...:cry:

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

The follow up was a 25 cent sale when they hit 25 billion downloads. I'm worried that at 200 billion downloads all of the 99 cent apps will be $2.

Tapatalk is the free app on Amazon today. It's apparently just free now. It's the same version as the $3 one on the Play Store. Perhaps they'll no longer support and update the Amazon version or they're changing up their business model. Maybe it's just free for a limited time but they don't specify.

It's not a game, but a great mobile forum reader for sites like CAG. CAG 3.0 is (seemingly always ;)) just days away and should improve things on the mobile end, but Tapatalk is great until then. It's also extremely handy for many other sites and if your data use is limited it can be a more efficient way to browse forums.

wow, thanks for sharing. I've been using the CAG fan made mobile app, but while it's good, still has a lot of bugs needed to be worked out. Will try this out and see how it fairs:)

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

only thing about tapatalk i'm not nuts about is that it runs at startup and always runs in the background. obviously that's necessary because of notifications of new posts and messages and all that, but if you have spotty battery life or a lot of processes running already, it's another drain.

I had an odd thing happen to me. I saw the Carmageddon promo, but decided I would support and paid for it. It didn't work on my android phone, so I uninstalled it. I figured I'd install it later on my Nexus tablet. Google Play Store automatically refunded me for the app a few minutes later. Is that normal? Can I turn it off somewhere?

I've since downloaded the promo free one they had to my tablet. It just seems a bit weird to auto refund me without getting my authorization, or even if I don't complain and ask for a refund.

Google Play auto-refunds if you uninstall the program withing 15 minutes of installing the game. It's for a situation like yours: you buy the game, but it doesn't work so you uninstall it.

If you don't want the refund, simply leave the app installed for longer than 15 minutes.

Yeah, this happens to me, too. I hate when I get double charged until the refund goes through, though. Like having $13.98 charged for The Amazing Spiderman until the refund hits. That gets me nervous.

Perhaps it's because I have notifications off, but Tapatalk is not listed among the running apps on my phone. Even if it were I imagine it would be a pretty insignificant drain considering how other similar apps work. I haven't had issues with background apps like that actually impacting my battery or device performance since I had older hardware on Gingerbread.

If you're rooted, I don't see why anyone wouldn't be, you can use an app called Greenify. It'll keep all selected apps in hibernation mode so they don't waste battery, processing power, or RAM. It'll speed up your device and free resources. Just don't hibernate anything you need real-time notifications from like Facebook, G+, messaging apps, etc.

Hey FidelityNy,

If I've installed Android onto my touchpad recently, does that mean it is rooted? I'm very new to all of this, so sorry for the question. :)

comments seem to imply that it regularly prompts you to buy the other Dash games, but even still, I love me some playfirst so I'll give it a try:D

This is a really great implementation of a fantastic board game. Warning: learning curve might be high, and it is somewhat abstract, but an excellent strategy game.

Not necessarily, but most custom roms come pre-rooted. You can use a root checker to verify whether it's rooted or not. You can also tell you're rooted when you have an app called "Superuser" or "SupeSU" in your app drawer and you don't recall putting it there yourself.

If you managed to install Android on your HP Touchpad, then yes, it is rooted already.

Thanks for the heads up on Tigris and Euphrates! I've had my eye on it for a while, but I've never played the board game. This is the same company that produced other board games like Le Havre and Puerto Rico on iOS, so hopefully if this gets a spike in sales on the android side of things that they'll port over some of their other games.

Thanks for the heads up on T&E. I love board game adaptations for touch screen and phones. I wish the Android and Apple would sort them a little better because a high quality board game adaptation. I'd love to see games like Power Grid, Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, Dominion or Thunderstone converted to digital form.
