Google Play Store Freebies: Get Batman Arkham Origins & Assassin's Creed Pirates For Free (Reg. $5 Each)
Looking for fun new games to play on your Android device? Then check out Batman Arkham Origins and Assassin's Creed Pirates as both of these are free for a limited time on the Google Play Store. They usually cost $4.99 each to download.
For all of you iOS users, don't despair! Although there is no word on how long it has been free, looking around the App Store on my iPhone, I found that both of these are also currently free there as well with loads of reviewers posting how much they love both. In fact, I gave both games a whirl on my iPhone and I have to say that I was the most impressed with the graphics and smoothness of the Batman game. For some reason, I initially thought that the Batman game would be more like The Simpson's Tapped Out but it's actually very different. Instead, you need to complete missions around Gotham City and luckily, there is a handy tutorial to teach you just how to do that. This is definitely the perfect game for any Batman fan and in fact, when I showed my hubby the game, he said: "this is pretty cool!"
It's cool, indeed, especially since the next Batman game won't be coming out until 2015, so at least in the meantime, there is something to keep you Batman fans appeased. :D
Assassin's Creed Pirates is slightly different but the concept is similar. It seems to me like although Batman Arkham Origins can easily be played on a phone, especially one as small as the iPhone, Assassin's Creed, on the other hand, would be better suited on a tablet. When I first launched the game, it seemed very two dimensional but the very first task throws you right in the midst of the ocean and asks you to navigate a ship. The graphics definitely impressed me the most as I certainly didn't expect as many details as there was in the scenery. One of the biggest differences between the PlayStation 4 and the third console was the level of details, such as random leaves rolling around, more pronounced waves in the ocean and in fact, I noticed the same kind of details when playing this game on my phone.
Both are definitely worth a download, especially since they're free. Be sure to let us know in the comments section which game is your favourite!
