Google’s app and game deal of the week are now live, with another two great titles discounted to just 20c. This week we have Star Walk 2 – Night Sky Guide by Vito Technology and the ad-free version of Trivia Crack.
Google Play App Deal of the Week
Star Walk 2 – Night Sky Guide
If you’re an astronomy fan, you’ll appreciate Star Walk 2, it’s an app that will give you information and some truly stunning visuals of the objects you see in the night sky simply by pointing your phone at it.
As an app that gives you information about objects you’re pointing your phone at you will need a digital compass in your device – luckily that’s the majority of Android devices. The app displays 3D models of celestial bodies including Planetary nebulae, Constellations, Dwarf planets, comets, and asteroids as well as Man-made satellites. You also get Layer by layer planets and missions.
The app is an updated version of an original app – naming it Star Walk ‘2’ is your first clue and includes more support for higher resolution ‘retina displays’ as well as sound effects and a ‘stirring’ soundtrack.
The app runs on devices running Android 4.0.3 and weighs in at a hefty 157MB. The app will cost you 20c, but even paying for it upfront you’re going to be looking at some in-app purchases with IAP available or between $0.99 – $3.58 per item. Even with the IAP it’s worth having a look at for 20c, head over to Google Play and check it out.
Google Play Game Deal of the Week
Trivia Crack (Ad-Free)
If you ever look back at your time playing Trivial Pursuit and think of it as your game then you’ll definitely appreciate Trivia Crack.
Load up the game, spin the friendly spinner wheel and you’ll be asked one of hundreds of thousands of questions from 6 categories in over 20 languages – and if you think you have some better questions you can alway create your own in the included factory. Winner is the first to win six crowns against your opponent, who you can chat with – or use trash talk to try and put them off their game – and winner takes home a coveted collectible card – new cards being added all the time.
Just like the App Deal of the Week, Trivia Crack also contains in-app purchases with each item priced between $1.36 – $145.10 per item so you’ve been warned. The game runs on devices running Android 2.3.3 and above so you should be right on the majority of Android devices you own, and at 56MB it’s not terribly large in size. Head over to Google Play and check it out.
That’s it for another week and even with IAP Star Walk 2 is my pick this week, I guess it’s just the astronomy nerd in me coming out. Either way, your Google Opinion Rewards credit should take care of both these so check them both out now and we’ll see you next week.
