Android Games


Gameloft is offering another free download for fans of its top-notch 3D games. Having previously provided free copies of the adventure game Dungeon Hunter, Gameloft is running a one-day promotion that will provide free copies of Hero of Sparta to anyone with an Android phone compatible with the device.

Hero of Sparta tells the story of King Argos, a warrior king who must destroy a dark god and the wicked Greeks who worship him. Sparta is a classic journey fighting game with lots of stories, bonus points, and special attacks that can be unlocked. It’s a fun, good-looking game that has proven popular in several formats.

Interested parties can open their phone’s browser and navigate to Then search for the “Limited offer: free download” link and you’ll be able to obtain a free copy of the game. An additional download of game data will also be required, but users will be slashing away in no time once the Wi-Fi connection reappears.

While my previous attempts at purchasing Gameloft games have been so frustrating that I’ve sworn off the company until it distributes the Android Market, I was thankfully able to download Sparta without issue today. Here’s a list of the phones that are compatible:
