Four Free Gameloft Games

I guess Gameloft wanted to join the frenzy. Here's a recent tweet:

They're dropping to free permanently and adding ads on menus and loading screens.

Yeah, just saw this from their Facebook page:

What kind of games will be offered? We've selected a variety of classic hits taken from our catalogue of action, sports, casual and family titles, plus anything in between.

How long will this offer last? This is a permanent price change. Once these games are free, they'll stay free in the future, too.

Are these games demos or lite versions? Will I need to unlock them progressively through in-app purchases? No, these are the full games, and they will be entirely accessible after they've been downloaded. The only change is that menus and loading screens now display ad banners. No additional screens or unskippable ads have been added, so you can get the full original experience of each game.


So technically, if these are dropping to free permanently, then it's not a "deal", but guess this still warrants putting here.

Say what you want about Gameloft but at they always seemed to take the format seriously (untill recently with weak freemium business model).

I winder if this means they'll be updating paid editions to include advertisements.

Maybe this explains why they pulled Let's Golf 2.
