Android Publishers Getting in on the Holiday Sale Fun, Too

Sep 4, 2011

Over on the iOS App Store, any kind of significant holiday or important date is a cause for publishers to start dropping prices on their apps. Android hasn’t quite gotten into this fun, but Namco and Gameloft have launched a few sales in order to get Android users some low-cost games to enjoy on Labor Day.

Namco: All these games are currently on sale for half off their regular prices through 10:00 am PST on September 6th:

Isaac Newton’s Gravity: $0.99
More Brain Exercise: $1.49
Ms. Pac-Man: $1.49
Pac-Man Championship Edition: $1.49
Pac-Man: $1.49
Pool Pro Online 3: $1.49
TNA Wrestling Impact: $2.49

Gameloft: They’re doing something a little bit different from Namco. All of Gameloft’s games are available for $0.99, but not from the Android Market, only from Gameloft’s own store. Note that Gameloft is very picky about which devices can run which games, so a title may not be available for a phone or tablet, even if it would have sufficient hardware to run the game.
