It looks like Google has surreptitiously started a little summer promo in the Play Store with discounts on apps and games, with some going below the usual $0.99 barrier. There's no official landing page yet, so we don't know everything that's included, but more could still be on the way.

Asteroids Pack LWP – $0.99 from $1.95 (spotted yesterday)

    Reaper is a great game, if you haven't tried it yet go do it.

    • Cheeseball

      Agreed. The way Reaper does IAPs is perfect. Basically permanent, Google Play account-based expansion packs.

      • John Garlits

        Agreed! Basically it makes the free part a demo, and you buy the rest permanently. Fun game as well, and cloud saves too!

    • Ryan S

      Man I loved Reaper. Their one-time IAP is what all games should do.

      Side note - I remember raging when I found out you could never max your stats in Dark Harvest mode. Only thing I didn't like about that game.

        Help. Toi khong co kha nang cap nhat tro choi Reaper.

    Just realised I had already bought Galaxy Pack LWP.. Another reason why we need a Purchased apps tab in the My apps section in play store. So that I can re-install them when I change my device.. I may not re-install all the free apps but i definitely want to get back my paid apps when I get a new phone.

    • nxtiak

      Go to My Apps, then go to All. All your downloads and purchases are there.
      Apps purchases shows Purchased if it's not installed.

      • David Spivey

        This isn't much of an option if (like me) you have slightly over 500 apps installed on your tablet.

    • primalxconvoy
      • Kevin

        This only works if you only bought like 20 apps.

        • David Spivey

          I have many more than 20 paid apps, and this works well: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.lowpingerz.mypurchases

          • Kevin

            I have about 150+ so it's useless for me. :(

          • tdcrone

            Try this:


            Also... revealing... to realize how much you've spent in the Play Store. :)

            Edit: looks like this is what primal suggested, I can assure you it works with at least 106 purchased apps...

          • Kevin

            Thank you! Now I just wish I never seen the amount of money I spent on the Market. I think I have a problem. :(

          • John Garlits

            Thanks for sharing! It will be interesting to see how well it works. Too bad it's such a pain to go through these in the Play store itself.

          • David Spivey

            Then you didn't follow the link THIS referred to, which is not useless.

        • Johnathan Pertolick

          Works fine with 200+ apps, apparently you just can't be buggered to go through your list. Which there are apps to help you with that, but it sounds like you can't be buggered to find or use those either.

          Which makes us conclude: why should we care that you can't be buggered to solve your own problems with any of the many available solutions :

  • Matthew Fry

    Dead Space is EA and like most EA games is updated infrequently and has bugs. Still, it looks quite nice for a mobile game.

  • Renan Lazarotto

    Dear EA, south americans wants to play Dead Space on mobile too. Don't force me to pirate it. Sincerely, one random brazilian guy.

    EDIT: looks like I've talked too soon... https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ea.deadspace_row

    • http://mekakiwi.blogspot.com.br/ ED-Z が あらわれた!

      That's OK. You can just replace EA with publishers that refuse to license their shows/movies to Netflix...
      Sincerely, fellow Brazilian guy.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Sale now has some kind of a landing page..... And it looks like it will continue for some time as it mentions that next set of sale begin on 31st July....



  • John Garlits

    Try this app sale notifier. Doesn't find everything, but it's still nice to have. There are a couple others like it, but this one is pretty good.
