This month Gameloft (GFT) are celebrating their 10th Anniversary and instead of them receiving gifts they have decided to give out 10 free iPhone/iPod touch games instead.
Fans of Gameloft will know the great games they have available in the app store. Lets Golf and Real Football 2009 are two of their popular ones, not forgetting NOVA a fantastic sci-fi FPS. All quality, polished games for a small price but very much worth it.
So Gameloft are launching ‘iPhone Happy Hour’. For two hours everyday from the 10th of May to the 21st of May one of their iPhone or iPod touch games will be free. Now there is no catch to this great offer you just have to keep a watch out to when exactly it is free. There are no details about which games will be on offer and it won’t be the same time every day. Gameloft have recommended you follow them on twitter at @gameloft so you can see as soon as the offer is available.
Any questions? Here are a few gameloft have already answered.
1. How can I participate? What do I have to do?
This is not a contest! There are no questions to answer or no lottery to enter. Everybody can grab a game for free once he/she sees the Happy Hour tweet and time hasn’t run out yet.
2. How do I download the game?
The same way you would usually download it: on the App Store! You won’t even have to search for it, a direct link to the App Store, accessible from both your computer, your iPhone or your iPod touch, will be inserted in the tweet.
3. Is there a limit of free games you’ll deliver?
No, once a game is free, there will be no limit of people who can download it in the 2-hour window. Just be quick!
4. Are the Happy Hour also for iPad?
No, sorry, only iPhone and iPod touch.
5. I live in country XXX, can I benefit from the Happy Hour?
All countries where the App Store game section is available are eligible. You obviously need an iTunes account to download a game, even if it’s free. One of the reasons we’ll change the time of the Happy Hour every day is for everybody in the world to have a chance to take advantage of it!
6. Is Twitter the only way to know? Is there anywhere else I can know about the free game of the day and when the Happy Hour start?
We’ll only communicate the availability of each free game on Twitter. This is because it allows for instant communication with our fans and the Happy Hour only last 2 hours. You may find the news elsewhere on the web about it but we can’t guarantee the Happy Hour will still be running when you see it.
7. I don’t have a Twitter account, what should I do?
We suggest you create one, it takes only a few seconds from http://twitter.com/ ! Once you’re done and connected, go to http://twitter.com/gameloft and click on “Follow”. You’ll then receive all our Tweets on the “home” page of your Twitter account. You can also download one of the numerous Twitter clients from the App Store. Plenty of them are free and they allow you to receive tweets directly on your iPhone or iPod touch.
Let us know which games you manage to grab in their great giveaway and may I take this opportunity to wish Gameloft a Happy 10th Anniversary on behalf of the team at Touch Reviews.
