Amazon UK welcomes in Underground service featuring hundreds of free android games

Amazon UK has welcomed in a new service called Amazon Underground - giving Google Play and Android users free games and apps.

A new Amazon service called Amazon Underground is giving away over $10K in apps and games for Android devices using Google Play. Not only are the apps and games free, but all in-app purchases are also free of charge.

One thing to note is that this is unfortunately only compatible with the Amazon UK region, so on the Amazon US accounts it'll claim that the offer isn't in your region.10 Featured Free Games

While there are over 400 hundred free apps and games, there are quite a few that stand out amongst the crowd as casual mobile games people love to play. Below are 10 highlighted games that are completely free and ready to download through the Amazon Underground app

  • Fruit Ninja 5th Anniversary
  • Goat Simulator
  • Cut the Rope 2
  • Sonic Dash
  • Farming Simulator 14
  • Ruzzle
  • Duck Tales: Remastered
  • Monsters University
  • Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
  • Looney Tunes Dash!

The only way Amazon was able to make this huge business deal was by paying the developers behind the apps and games a play-per-minute rate for the Amazon customers. While it isn't great that this is only available in the UK, there are high hopes that this "long-term program" will move globally through all Amazon supported countries. 

"We've made this possible by working out a new business model with app and game developers: we're paying them a certain amount on a per-minute played basis in exchange for them waiving their normal in-app fees."
