Just past 12:00 a.m. PDT . . . the END of the Amazon Day and the promotion still appears valid.

 

This may run thru the weekend.

 

As viewed thru my Kindle Fire, the apps are grouped on one page with . . . Memorial Day - Download These Free Titles, Get 1,000 Amazon Coins.

Sucks that San Andreas isn't compatible with my Nexus 5 but the 1000 coins was nice. So far, only purchased Final Fantasy IV. Not sure what to spend my other coins on.

Free coins!
But my S3 can't run San Andreas =(

Ah well.


I honestly think it's not compatible with most devices. My sister has an S3 which she has Vice City on. I have the HTC One/Nexus 7 (1st Gen) and I can't run San Andreas or GTA 3. It saddens me, but I'll get to play them when I get my next phone upgrade.

SOB! Not compatible can't purchase GTA. I stupidly selected "always complete action with Amazon App." Can that be changed and if so how?

I don't get why my Nexus 7 can't run GTA SA, but whatever. Paying with not real money to get 20 dollars of additional also not real money is fine with me.

I think it's safe to say this offer is to get people to purchase a Kindle Fire and/or Amazon Fire TV. You could always use the 2,000 coins on GTA 3 and Vice City which is playable on Android devices. If I'm not mistaken, you could play all three games on one device ..... as long as it's an Amazon product.

 

 

I wonder what they have planned for Memorial Day.

San Andreas & GTA3 are apparently specially coded only for use on amazon tablets, while vice city isn't. dunno why amazon chose to do that, so will have to get those two from google play. What I'm concerned about is the vice city I had downloaded off an app site was version1.0.3, a current version, while the vice city I paid amazon for is only version 1.0.1, an outdated version...

If my Note 3 is incompatible with San Andreas, can I still purchase the game somehow?

You can purchase it through the website, it'll warn you that it may not be compatible with your device but won't stop you from purchasing it.

Thanks guys! Time to pick a few games myself

Deus Ex is an easy no. What a poorly made game, especially if you loved Human Revolution.

I really don't know what I am going to do with all these coins... 3k+. I don't really play games on my phone and I don't have a Fire TV. I thought about getting one but my house if full of streamer, 2 xbox 360s, a PS3, 2 Chromecasts, an Xbox One and maybe a PS4 soon. I With Google I/O in a month I better wait to see what they have planned. If only the Fire TV had Amazon's Special Offers...

Not sure what to do with your coins? I'm a bit bias as I thoroughly enjoy strategy driven games... but here's my list of recommendations!

 

Autumn Dynasty ($4.99)

- Best RTS game available on Android right now. Hands down. Might even be one of the best RTS games I've played in the last decade. It's a damn good game.

 

Devil's Attorney ($1.99)

- Strategy courtroom game. Silly game on the surface, but very complex and underrated. Original to the core. If you have points to burn, you wouldn't regret trying this one out!

 

Anomaly Korea ($3.99)

- Best Anomaly available.

 

Star Command ($2.99)

- Unique starship simulation/strategy game. Not the best, but you'll get some enjoyment out of it.

 

Dungeon Village ($4.50)

- Get your charger ready... because you'll be playing this one for a while. WARNING: Seriously addicting.

 

Game Dev Story ($2.50)

- If you haven't already played it, what are you waiting for? Get to it!

 

Riptide GP2 ($2.99)

- Personally, my favorite racer on the market. It's not just a silly racer, it's got tons of options that will keep you playing for a while.

 

OTTTD ($2.99)

- Silly tower defense game. Highly enjoyable.

 

Threes! ($1.99)

- My wife can't stop playing. I guess that means its good? 

 

Out There ($1.99)

- Good reviews. Haven't played this one enough to share my verdict on it. Recommended by a few friends, so I ended up downloading it!

 

Fieldrunners HD ($2.99)

- Non-linear, open ended tower defense game. Challenging and very fun!

 

The Bard's Tale ($2.99)

- Stupid funny. Clever dialogue and interesting story. Worthy of at least one playthrough.

 

Terraria ($4.99)

- 2D Minecraft with more options. But you already knew that.

 

Minecraft Pocket Edition ($6.99)

- Fan of the original? Enjoy this "lite" version on-the-go!

 

Monster Wars/Legendary Wars ($0.99/each)

- Deep tower defense games. Lots and lots of options to tinker with. Highly enjoyable!

Hah - wish I paid attention to this earlier when the photo apps were valid but thanks for the tip. I had no interest whatsoever in GTA San Andreas and didn't realize that they offered coins with purchases like that. Though I did have a handful of coins from before. Now, for whatever reason, I have 2700.

I never use them though, besides buying Minecraft long ago. I just rely on the free app of the day to fill in my library. I have a few of the ones nJoy7 listed just from getting those - though I will look into Autumn Dynasty. I just have a hard time playing anything on the Kindle Fire vs. the iPad. It just seems so slow and unresponsive in comparison. I wish I could use these coins on Kindle books instead.

Nice recommendations. Dungeon Village looks like a neat little game, grabbed it.

You made me check that out - I missed it in the list originally. Looking at it now I might do the same!

Sweet. Did all this to get Threes and still have $24 in coins leftover.

Best thing about Dungeon Village...once you buy it, you BOUGHT IT.  It's not a "free" game that then takes 8 hours to build a store unless you pay...nor is it a game you pay for then STILL pushes in-app purchases on you.

 

I'll have to check out that RTS though.

Considering getting Ticket to Ride, but $7 seems steep.

thanks nJoy7  for the list.

Grabbed Autumn Dynasty and dungeon village.

To add one more to the list you made, Detective Grimoire is an pretty good point and click adventure game. ($3.99)

Yeah I wasted like 3 hours two nights ago on Dungeon Village. It's so simple and relatively easy, but it's just cute and addictive.

 

I do wish there was a user controlled battle aspect of it, but that's not a huge complaint. It's like a mini mobile Majesty, I love it.

Why would you pass on 900 free coins, spending 700 of those free coins, and then getting another 2000 free coins?

I actually did end up getting them, I won't be using them on my Kindle, since it's sold, but if I can find a way to use them otherwise, I will. I haven't tried using them on my Nexus 7. I am under the impression that I can't, although I could easily be wrong.
