Amazon is best known for selling the widest possible range of products at prices that often undercut rivals by a fairly substantial margin. Of course, Amazon is much more than that now. The company’s streaming movie and TV service attached to Amazon Prime grows more competitive each day, and there are plenty of other areas Amazon dabbles in. Among the company’s offerings is the Amazon Appstore, which provides a third-party alternative to Google’s own Android app store.
And there’s one area where Amazon has Google beat: The company gives away one new app for free every single day of the year.
Remember when we told you that the Amazon Appstore was the one app every single Android user should have installed on his or her device? Well, today’s free app of the day serves as yet another reminder.
Monument Valley is, without questions, one of the most beautiful mobile games ever made. The app is well worth its normal $3.99 price tag, but Amazon is giving the Android version away for free for one day only.
Here’s Monument Valley’s full description:
In Monument Valley you will manipulate impossible architecture and guide a silent princess through a stunningly beautiful world.
Monument Valley is a surreal exploration through fantastical architecture and impossible geometry. Guide the silent princess Ida through mysterious monuments, uncovering hidden paths, unfolding optical illusions and outsmarting the enigmatic Crow People.
Ida’s Dream now available.
