LEGO Brings Its BIONICLE Line To The Play Store As A Free Game With No In-App Purchases

I have fond memories of bringing home multiple LEGO Bionicle sets when I was 12. Apparently the half building block, half action figure toys are still around and gearing for a big relaunch this year, and a new video game is here to go along with the new toys. Bionicle is a basic top-down action title that pits players against stylized LEGO monsters in a color-coded legend staring six "Toa" heroes.

An In-Depth Look At Hearthstone's IAP Model, Or: How To Make A Free-To-Play Game That Doesn't Suck

Here at Android Police, we've made our position on the prevalence of free-to-play mobile games perfectly known, to wit: most of them suck. It often seems like instead of embracing the audience-widening possibilities that the phrase "free game" implies, developers and publishers use it as an excuse to design games around compelling in-app purchases for more and more fleeting rewards. The phenomenon is well-documented, so I won't bore you with the inherently manipulative methods of most F2P games - you can read here and here if you really need a refresher.

Beloved Star Wars Action-RPG Knights Of The Old Republic Appears In The Play Store For $5

What's this? A licensed Star Wars game on Android that people actually want? Believe it or not, the fan-favorite Knights of the Old Republic just crash-landed into the Play Store out of nowhere. You can grab it for your Android 4.1+ device for five bucks right now. That's a 50% discounted price, at least according to the app description. Compatibility seems a little spotty, too: it's downloadable with most of my Nexus and SHIELD devices, but not my G Pad 8.3 GPE tablet.

In SNK's Free-To-Play Beast Busters, the King Of Fighters Gang Moonlight As Lightgun Zombie Hunters

Zombie games are not novel. In fact at this point, they're about as far from "novel" as you can get before slipping right off the treacherous slopes of ironic reference. But SNK's latest mobile game Best Busters actually manages to infuse some new ideas into the zombie shooter genre, and pull it off with the developer's signature anime style. Now if only they could do so without falling into the trappings of free-to-play mobile games...
