The Room is great, I got it from a Humble Bundle and it's one of the few Android games I've completed all the way through. Anyone that's a fan of puzzle adventure games should definitely grab it while it's free (to bad it's only the tablet version free today, but I believe the normal one was at one point as well). That reminds me there is apparently an epilogue level now, I need to get on that...

I was able to download, install, and play the Kindle Fire version of Diner Dash when it was offered for free on my ancient HTC Droid Incredible S. You should be able to install them even if your device isn't officially supported (thanks for not being so uptight like Google, Amazon), and considering the Nexus 7 is a good deal more powerful than the Kindle Fire they shouldn't have any problem running.

is the   nexus 7 more powerful then the new kindles ?

 

i had to return my kindle   HOPEFULLY though  since its still link to my account (factory reset the system only)    that means i can download all of these games to a new kindle  i get in the future 


WOOOO I STINK

Completely agree with squirrel (I also got it from HB).  It's worth the asking price of free and then some.

You might care to take a look at this: http://reviews.cnet....dle-fire-hdx-7/

Technically the Kindle Fire HDX has a slightly better processor, but I'd still argue that the having the whole Android OS instead of the highly restricted modification that is the Kindle Fire OS is worth opting for the Nexus 7. And in any case the processors in both are still more than powerful enough for 90% of the apps currently released.

And yes you will be able to download all your previous apps, as they are tied to your Amazon account not your Kindle, and will also be downloadable on a non-Kindle device if you go that route.

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

Only games that look interesting are the Kindle ones, but I don't have a Kindle.  Still, I'll take all the coins.  Thanks NinjaSquirrel and other guys!

How does Vice City play on phones?  Seems like it would be tough as hell, but I'm still interested.

 

Wish Terarria was in Amazon's catalog and I'd pick that up with my free coins.

Most noteworthy is Amazon is running a Kindle Fire hits promotion where a handful of premium apps have been made free for today only, and also include 20 Amazon Coins:

 

Angry Birds Star Wars Premium HD (Kindle Tablet Edition) - Normally $2.99

The Room (Kindle Tablet Edition) - Normally $1.99

Toca Builders - Normally $2.99

Diner Dash Deluxe - Normally $0.99

Fishdom Premium (Kindle Tablet Edition) - Normally $4.99

Splashtop Whiteboard (Kindle Tablet Edition) - Normally $9.99

 

If you already own some of these already and want to get the free Amazon Coins, you can just delete the app from your account at https://www.amazon.c...t/myapps?sort=b then just buy them again and it will give you the 20 Amazon Coins.

Well how do you take to virtual joysticks? Personally I can't stand them (with the exception of League of Evil, which just works somehow), but if they don't bother you too much I've heard it's basically a feature complete experience, barring a handful of licensed tracks which have been cut from all the digital versions. Bare in mind though it's a huge file (for a mobile game), so if you don't have a ton of space it might not be worth it.

Yeah, some apps work, but some don't - I've had this happen to me before. In fact, I just tried to install The Room on my Nexus through the Amazon Appstore and I get "sorry, this app is not compatible with your device". Oh well, lots of other stuff to play.

I tried Diner Dash from the Amazon Appstore on my Motorola Photon Q and it would load, and then just freeze and hang.

Most apps I get from Amazon run just fine, however.

I think the Nexus can't really sell for much lower otherwise Google would be losing money on it.

Yeah, I think the best deal to be found would likely be a gift card included with purchase, likely from Target. They did a similar thing for iPads last year, and I think it's a fairly good possibility they will extend them to other tablets this time.

ahhhhhh man i thought i found a great deal but it sucks 

 

http://www.walmart.c...Memory/21907347

 

Google Nexus 7" Tablet with 32GB Memory  for  199.99

 

but it looks like this is first gen  cause   this one  is  

  • 1.2GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30L processor
  • 1GB system memory and 32GB

and the other one i found on 

best buy

 

Along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 8064 processor with a 2MB L2 cache and 1.5GHz processor speed allows you to stay connected and productive on the go.

 

the best buy one  sounds more powerful.

 

i did  get a nice deal  from best buy (about my system blowing up and   how i said it was  3 year replacment plan )  well  i just got a call back from the higher ups from best buy saying 

 

They should of offered me to repair the system  so  they giving me 100 buck gift card to go out and buy the new kindle  HDX   for 229   Since my kindle was only 129 when i got mine on sale. (workers at store said i had to pay 100 bucks more if i wanted to  replacment  tuesday night)

  Hell  i was expecting them  to give me the  16 GB  hd fire   for 169  (40 bucks)   but they dude goes for all my trouble they will give me a 100 buck gift card to upgrade to the  hdx

 

since they  did that for me  going to need a new washer and dryer  i will now probally  buy  from best buy ..

 

HEADS UP ABOUT BUYING THE PROTECTION PLAN

 

i was told   if they did offer me the  169 system  for the busted system the  99.99 i paid for the 3 year replacement plan  would of been voided   even though i only use the  warranty for  3 months.  (so i would of lost that entire 100 bucks)     when i do buy another system i  highly doubt im going to buy the  warranty again.  I will just use a  credit card that  DOUBLES amazon one year warranty .

how do they replace it. Do they send you a new one or used one   or cash    (meaning can you get a warranty on the one they send you)

Reactable Mobile - $9.10 $4.83
Star Traders RPG Elite - $2.99 $1.99

Has anyone played the Android version of Sine Mora? I already have it on PC, but I'm just curious how well it would translate to touch controls considering it requires a good deal of precision.

They send you a new one, and you have to send the old one in. It's well worth the money as it covers spills, drops, things like that.

(Our kids drop or throw, or spill things on the kindle fire all the time. Having the gumdrop case is a must as well)

Thanks for the heads up! It seems most of these discounts are in the form of IAPs and various halloween themed content, so I wasn't sure exactly how or if they should be added to the OP. If anyone cares to chime in on how you feel about F2P premium content discounts being in the OP, or have suggestions on how to list it, I'm all ears :)

What task killers apps is everyone using? I need a "kill all apps button" task killer to free up every single RAM possible on my Gingerbread phone before I start any games but I hate how they all use RAM themselves (oxymoron) or don't have an easy "kill all" button.
- Easy Task Killer: restarts itself after killing it (8MB RAM sucker)

Anything better?

I use this one: https://play.google....oid.taskmanager

 

I also use their file manager (also free): https://play.google....ngs.android.pop

 

I don't think you actually want a "kill all" button...



#142 robodobo

Nevermind, I found 'TasKiller free'. which works just enough.

Note for others: Use the "kill all apps" button (the header logo) then relaunch TasKiller again and press settings and then the 'Kill Me' button to permanently kill TasKiller (otherwise it'll use 17MB). The app itself loads fast so it's not a problem for an extra step before launching game(s) on slower devices that need all the RAM possible.

It can ignore apps if you really care about receiving specific app updates while playing your game(s) though... :/

I'm tempted by HOTD: Overkill - TLR but from the reviews I've seen it's really short with not much to do but upgrade the few weapons, and there's DLC on top of that to get everything out of the game.

Odd that this game isn't available at all, let alone at a discount, on the Google Play store. EA's been releasing versions of its big sports games on mobile (Madden and FIFA, at least), so it makes sense that 2K would, as well.

You should be able to get a refund within 15 minutes. I've heard of people contacting CS and geting one beyond that window up to 24 hours.

edit: Just reread and saw the word "like" in there. I assume this is Amazon and not Google Play? No idea, sorry. Amazon's support is usually pretty good so it's worth a try.
