Thanks for posting about the Revolver sale. For some reason, I thought the sequel to Sometimes Always Monsters was the one in the sale, but it's not even out. Hopefully, my .99 gives them incentive to hurry up.

Jade Empire is also .99.

Anyone know how to use a different Google profile for games on the shield? It's easy on a phone or tablet. Btw trine is shield compatible.

I assume you're talking about the Shield TV. I only have one Google Play account, but have you tried going into the system menu? There should be an icon on the bottom left of the screen where you can go into the menu and see which account is associated with your Shield TV. If you can't change accounts, it is also possible to clone the app on the first account, copy it to an SD card or a flash drive, and then see if you can sideload the app.

In theory, couldn't you also just set up the 2 account as in the family share plan?

I can add a second Google account fairly easily but getting games to use it has proven impossible. And this may sound weird but all my Google play game account stuff is under a different account than my regular Google account including my apps etc. Haven't had a problem till I finally encountered an app making me log in and I have carefully avoided creating a Google + profile on that account for so long.

All this stems from stuff a good decade or so ago.

Edit: To make that a bit more clear, I buy my apps and my main Google account are under a different account than my Google games account.

I was wondering if anyone's tried getting a refund for a game that's no longer available for download. All the Chaos Rings except the latest have been taken down, and they were quite pricey. I don't see any way to redownload them from my account, and the self-refund request system rejects it on account of being too old, I assume. Has anyone tried this?

Delisted Google Play games should still appear in your account purchase history, and you should still be able to redownload them on your compatible Android devices. For instance, I can still see Soul Calibur in my account purchase history even though it's no longer for sale on Google Play. Refunds are only allowed within the two hour window of purchase.

I had found mine by going to 'my apps and games' or whatever from the website on a computer then scrolling through everything tied to my account. The first game (at least) isn't compatible with Android 4.something+ so I can't use it on my new phone after downloading anyway

Edit: fyi the 2nd game is still available on Amazon's app store for $15.99, apparently

Do you have it installed and it shows up under Installed? Or is it listed under Library? I have 1 and 2 and neither show up under Library. I never downloaded 2, and I only have 1 installed, but starting it up gives me a Japanese error message. I don't want to update it only to get another error message telling me that service for the game has already ended; despite being single-player RPGs, I think all the games have a DRM server check before the game boots up. Do you know if I can get a refund in this scenario?

Edit: I was able to update and play Chaos Rings 1, but 2 is nowhere to be found in my Library or the Play Store since I've never downloaded it. I get the feeling that if I uninstall CR1, it won't show up in my Library either. Can either of you suggest otherwise?

Only thing I (just) found out is:

If you find the google play page of the game and bookmark it, you won't have to cycle through all your apps again

 

also it appears there's more on amazons app store than I thought, they just didn't show up because they weren't compatible with my new phone (I guess)

 

 

edit: this is supposedly the link to Chaos Rings II:

https://play.google....x.chaosrings2gp

Tells me it's not available in my region yet maybe it'll work for you(?)

Strike Team Hydra is .99. It's a turn-based strategy game that looks to be like XCOM without the base-building aspect of XCOM. I can get behind that.

Bertram Fiddle: Episode 1 is a comedic adventure game that is currently free on Google Play:

https://play.google....n=featured_sale

This one is supposed to be Android TV/Shield TV compatible although I cannot confirm this. It might work on Shield TV with a mouse plugged in.

King of Math Defense is also free:

https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

Think tower defense meets math problems. Not Android TV compatible but it's free!

Death Point is on sale for $2.49:

https://play.google....diks.deathpoint

The game is a Steam port that has been called a top down Metal Gear Solid clone. It is Shield TV/Android TV compatible, and TouchArcade says the game has controller support.

And this isn't a deal, but Orangepixel has released its first open world game Ashworld at $3.99:

I posted that deal 3 posts above yours, but it's all good. At least someone else is trying to keep the Android thread alive! ;)

Oh, jeez. That's the last time I rely on the 'search this thread' feature. I got zero hits for 'bertram', so I figured I was good. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's all good, buddy! I don't think anyone reads the Android deals thread most of the time anyway.

But here are a few more deals.

Ace Academy, a visual novel style game, is $1.99 down from $9.99:

https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

Radium 2, a puzzle game, is 99 cents down from $3.49:

https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

Supposedly, Radium 2 is Android TV/Shield TV compatible although I can't personally confirm at this time.

And, finally, The Bridge is on sale for $5.99 down from $9.99:

https://play.google....n=featured_sale

The Bridge is Android TV/Shield TV only.

Realpolitiks Mobile is on sale for $3.99 down from $5.99:

https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

It looks like a deep strategy game that is only Android TV/Shield TV compatible which is weird since it has "mobile" in the title.

(Edit: Realpolitiks does not work on Shield TV.)

King of Karts is $2.99 down from $5.49:

https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

It is a karting style game with game pad support. Can't provide more details than that.

Duck Warfare is free down from 99 cents:
https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

They're ducks. They fight in a military strategy setting. No big whoop.

Office Story Premium is on sale for 99 cents down from $2.99:

https://play.google....m_campaign=sale

Looks more exciting than the office where I work.

As always, Google Play gives you two hours from the time of purchase to request a refund for apps if you don't like them or can't run them on your device.
