37 temporarily free and 36 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. After a slow week, things are picking up for the weekend, and so I have some fantastic sales to share with everyone. First up is Final Fantasy IV, a great JRPG that recently received an update for immersive mode as well as support for large-screen devices. Next is Worms 3, an enjoyable artillery game that's best played solo since the online functionality is buggy. Last up is MudRunner, the mobile version of the mudding game where you'll drive large trucks through realistic sludge. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is coming to Android, now available for pre-registration

In cooperation with ArtPlay Games, NetEase just announced that it will bring the popular Metroidvania title Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to Android and iOS, and the game will be released worldwide as a premium title, just like on consoles and PC. Bloodstained was created by Koji Igarashi, the producer behind some of the more popular Castlevania titles such as Harmony of Dissonance. This is why the 2019 release for Bloodstained was hotly anticipated, which is why I'm sure more than a few people will be excited to see how the game stacks up on mobile.

Samorost 2 arrives on Android as a surprise release to celebrate the game's 15th anniversary

Amanita Design is probably best known for its point and click adventure game Machinarium, though Botanicula and CHUCHEL are also highly-regarded titles that offer similar gameplay. Of course, the studio started with a game called Samorost, and it has received two sequels since its 2003 browser-based release. Sadly only the third title in this quirky series has been available on Android. That is, until today. Amanita Design has just released Samorost 2 on the Play Store, and it sports improved graphics, a new save system, as well as fullscreen support, all to celebrate the game's fifteenth anniversary.

Warhammer: Odyssey is an anticipated MMORPG for mobile — watch the first gameplay trailer here

Back in August of 2019, Virtual Realms announced the development for Warhammer: Odyssey, an upcoming MMORPG that looked promising despite a lack of details. Well, over the last year, development of the title has been moving along, with Virtual Realms sharing a few snippets of the game along with a way to pre-register on the official website, though gameplay videos were pretty much absent. This changes today with the official release of the first gameplay video for Warhammer: Odyssey, and while this is mainly a cinematic trailer, there's a few seconds of gameplay that shows off some of the game's characters, so this video indeed offers the first look at Warhammer: Odyssey in action.

In fall 2018, Google made its interest in gaming known with Project Stream, a beta that let users play the high-end Assassin's Creed Odyssey from a humble Chrome tab. The following spring, it announced Stadia, a full-fat gaming platform that would leverage the company's computing and networking prowess to provide users access to games with no dedicated gaming hardware required. That service is available now, and it's getting a lot of attention — both positive and negative. So what's the deal?
