They have a lot of *free* apps that include the in app purchases. Supposedly no catch

It's weird they would have a $20 game for free as soon as it hit their store. I'm downloading it now though so I guess it's good to go.

It's $20 from Google Play at the moment. I grabbed it from Amazon (cloud download) to at least flag it on my account.

Too good to be true, but snapping it up while the getting is good.  Thanks very much, OP!

I don't see how they could monetize this game, nor why they would want to spend so much extra time editing the game engine to include in-app purchases.

 

It's a great game, and everyone should get it for free. Doesn't even require Amazon Underground-level permissions, like a thumbprint and cheek swab of everyone in your immediate family.

I now own it, but not allowing me to download on my Note 4. Strange... any ideas? I also don't see it on Amazon Appstore App when searching.

I had no idea this was out and it's pretty much the only game I regularly look for on the App Store. I don't know shit about mobile gaming sooooo....does this work on a Kindle Fire?

I'm on a Note 3 and it doesn't look like it's compatible when I try to deliver it under registered devices. Could be the same for you but I'm not sure TBH.

Looks like a mistake. I don't see any in app purchases. The game runs in portrait mode which is odd, then again I've never played an RPG on a phone.

Surprised at how decently it controls on a mobile device. Obviously a controller is still better but they did a better job porting it than I expected!

 

Thanks Jodou!

I think so, it looks like my old Galaxy is compatible. Guessing it's because Note is considered a tablet.

It works with Nvidia Shield Tablet. Not the easiest to play though, given portrait mode.

Looks like this tells me it will work for me. Thanks OP. edit - It is a 1.5 gig download in case anyone is wondering.

It's been awhile since I've bought anything from Amazon app-wise, but I'm not seeing a download button anywhere after I make the purchase.

 

How do I actually get this to download?

There should be a download option, but it very well could be a compatability issue with your device which would keep it from being there.

Thanks op, grabbed it. Now just have to wait until I get home to install to see if it works.

Bleck.

 

I guess at least I have it purchased for now at the very least, and figure it out later if I get a new tablet at some point. :P

You could still own an android device, don't need to have service.

Wasn't able to purchase it from my iPhone so I ended up violating my government employer's ethics standards by "purchasing" it on my state computer.

I might be out of luck then, but I'd rather play my ps2 version on pcsx2, anyway.

I "got" the app, but I can't seem to download it.

On a Nexus 5X, It doesnt show up in my app list on the app, and the store page said it's compatable

 

 

Edit: I just cancelled my free 30-day prime trial 2 days ago, and they're offering me another free month. whatevs, don't even use it, but they'll never catch me forgetting to unsubscribe before it ends
