snakebyte group has launched GameStore a new Android gaming subscription service. The new service offers android gamers access to over 400 ad free games without in app purchases for a flat monthly fee.
Applications available through GameStore include premium titles like Evoland, Pac-Man Chamionship Edition DX, and The Walking Dead Pinball. Ad free versions of games like Subway Surfers, King of Thieves and Cut the Rope: Time Travel are also available.
While there are certainly many games that gamers will recognize from developers like Square-Enix Montreal, Capcom, ZeptoLab and Headup Games, many of the games are not. GameStore’s promised 400+ titles include numerous games from relatively unknown developers with game titles like 3D Jungle Run, Bangalore Metro Train, and Fireworks Finger Fun.
Many of the titles included in the GameStore subscription are playable offline. It should be noted that while GameStore games are downloaded to the user’s phone or tablet, they cannot be played once the users’ subscription lapses.
GameStore acts as an app store, and cannot be downloaded through Google Play. That means that users who want to try out the service will need to download GameStore from the service’s official website, allow installations from unknown sources in their device’s settings, and install their new app. Users should always exercise caution when installing Android apps from anywhere other than Google Play, this article should not be viewed as a guarantee of the safety of the GameStore app or any applications installed using the app. On the issue of malware, snakebyte CEO Mike Steup had the following statement:
GameStore brings mobile gaming into the 21st century, removing risk, and destroying barriers, providing a virtually endless selection of high quality games that gamers can enjoy without worrying about in-game purchases or unwanted malware,
GameStore is starting things off with two launch promos. First, users who give the game a a try this January will receive a free 30 day trial, while those who try out the service afterwards will only have 15 days to test out the service. Second, early birds who subscribe in January will have a monthly fee of 4.99€ (roughly $6.10), instead of the planned regular rate of 7.99€ (roughly $9.80 USD).
