Dungeon Hunter HD --  Free for 24 hours.

Ah, December.  The month of friends, family, festive holiday cheer, giving gifts, awesome sales, and free Android games.

Gameloft, the developer behind Android games such as Let's Golf, N.O.V.A., Asphalt 5, and Assassin's Creed, are offering up one of their most popular titles -- Dungeon Hunter -- for an appealing price of free-ninety-free (that's $0).  Originally priced at $4.99, Dungeon Hunter offers a robust RPG/adventure game right on your Android phone.

You won't find this title in the Android market, so you'll have to head on over to Gameloft's website to get in on this deal, or hit the break to learn more about Dungeon Hunter for Android.

 

  • Discover the enormous world of Gothicus and achieve different types of quests and missions: explore, kill, protect, find special items… 5 faeries, each with their own personality, will help you, providing protection, powers and advice.
  • Create your own character: choose his class from Rogue (to act stealthily), Knight (to use the blade as your favorite weapon) or Mage (to perform the most powerful magic).
  • Evolve and progress along your adventure. Gain experience points by killing enemies or succeeding in certain quests, and choose how to distribute them according to the skills you want to favor.
  • Tons of items, weapons and armors to find or buy from the merchant. They will change the look and abilities of your character.

Android gamers won't want to miss out on this deal, so head on over to Gameloft's website and get your copy now.  And it might be a good idea to keep checking that link over the coming days.  You'll notice the "free-hd-game" part of the URL, so maybe Gameloft plans on giving away other quality Android titles?  [Gameloft]

Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter HD -- free for 24 hours

Confirmed! Downloaded to N1 using mobile browser set to user agent Android! Thanks man and thanks to Gameloft!! and Android Central for alerting us!!

I love that they're giving away free games but I'm not an RPG guy. No thanks after watching that video. I'll stick to Word Feud.

"Sorry, but there are no available game for your mobile. If you are using a web browser, please try to connect with your wap browser. " Great, now I'm probably going to get spammed by them. Thanks a lot for suggesting a game I can't even get. I have a Droid Incredible.

Ensure "Mobile View" is enabled in your browser. That will take you directly to the download page. I had the same issue on my Incredible.

From @gameloft: If you're using Samsung Captivate, Fascinate or other Galaxy S device, please click Samsung GT-i9000 Galaxy S and let us know if that works.

I tried to get it to dl, but the link sent via sms does not work on the cell, but thru firefox on desktop it knows I'm not a mobile phone..

Yes, very annoying, you have to look down below to select Dungeon hunter. They're trying the bait and switch.

EDIT: posted this to the wrong comment - meant to follow the comment about when you change your phone the game changes to a paid game.

When you change your phone to anything the game changes to a racing game, not 100% sure about this deal anymore...

For us Galaxy S (Vibrant, Fascinate, Captivate) owners you might want to try it on the GT-i9000 Galaxy S model, that's what they said to do on their twitter account. Of course I can't install it until later, thanks to AT&T's divine wisdom, but if this works, then I really hope they put NOVA out. I've been dying for a decent FPS for android.

Doesn't seem to update the demo I already have installed. And it would make it so much easier if Gameloft would simply add their games to the market!

Had to force close and restart the download. Takes a few minutes. You are going to want Wi-Fi to download.

Runs very well and looks great on Droid X.

Well done game - reminds me of Diablo,

Thanks Gameloft!

All the games say "Buy $4.99". How do you get the free version?

*EDIT* Go to the website on your computer and enter your info there. When you go to it on the mobile browser it shows all the games with the price.

I have a fascinate and I am still getting the "sorry, no games available for your phone" message. I selected the I9000 device.

This wouldn't be so hard if Google would get their head out of their @$$ and let developers discount a game to $0.00 in the marketplace. The Android Market will never compete with iTunes unless apps can be offered for free for a limited time. The way it works now, if you make something free it's free forever.

Gameloft refuse to use the Android Market as a distribution channel for their games. Their choice. A poor one in my opinion. Agree that such promotions should be allowed within the Market but this is not the reason Gameloft games are not sold there.

Getting the following message.

Sorry, but there are no available game for your mobile. If you are using a web browser, please try to connect with your wap browser.

Scratch my edit up a few comments. The link they send just takes me to the same mobile site where the game is listed for $4.99, even after I change my phone type from Fascinate to i9000. Weird.

I'm on a Captivate. Used the Vibrant link instead of the i9000 one. Works fine.

Captivate on Cognition Rom 2.1.7

I'm on the Epic 4g and can download it without problem, but it won't install. I tried downloading it again and it still won't install.

(EDIT) Ok, I deleted the file from my phone and re-downloaded a new one and it worked. Can I just say that no 4G option to update sucks.

what???!!! are you kidding me??!!!! i just bought this game last month.... oh well hope they do this again with NOVA and AVATAR. those are the only two i don't own yet.

I get the download link when using I-9000 for my Fascinate, but then I get the "sorry, no games available for your phone" message. It also shows my phone as "Samsung SCH-I500 Galaxy S" on the page.

Simply click on the text that shows your phone as "Samsung SCH-I500 Galaxy S." It will then take you to a page that will let you change the phone type to I-9000 Galaxy S, then select download, worked for me. good luck

Apparently, mine was also. Eventhough I don't know how to send spam. What is going on with the site?

The site's spam filter seems to be a little over zealous at the moment but to be fair we have been seeing less advertisements for shoes etc. ;)

Nexus One didn't show as an option, so I picked HTC INcredible. It still says there are no games for my phone. How does it know I have a different model?

I get the download link when using I-9000 for my Fascinate, but then I get the "sorry, no games available for your phone" message. It also shows my phone as "Samsung SCH-I500 Galaxy S" on the page. - same here :-( SMS txt comes over w/ link but does not work

Try it from the mobile browser. If you're not using the stock browser, make sure it is set to Android and download using the I-9000. Should work.

When I go to the site via my stock browser, it doesn't give me a chance to select the phone type - it automatically detects Samsung SCH-i500. The only way I was able to try i-9000 was going to the website on my desktop and sending the download link via SMS.

Would check it out but it won't send an SMS to a perfectly-fine Google Voice number.

Would it kill GameLoft to send the download link to an EMAIL ADDRESS instead, which is free, always works, and which basically 100% of all Android smartphone users have their phone set up to access?

I guess if Gameloft is determined to give me and the Android Marketplace the finger, I'll give them one back.

I just went to the listed URL on my mobile browser and there was a download link. It even knew what device I was using (Nexus One), but downloaded the Milestone version according to the filename...?

I'm yet another Fascinate user getting the "sorry, no games available for your phone" message. Very frustrating!

No luck with my fascinate, if i do it from the phone it automatically says sorry but there are no games available for your mobile, and if i do it from computer, when i click link in the text it takes me to the same page

The file name said Motorola Droid, even though I'm using my HTC EVO. It loaded just fine and it plays great, so I'm not going to mess with it...it was free after all.

Seriously, when are Gameloft going to stop acting like whiny little b*tches and start selling stuff on the Android market? I refuse to buy a single one of their games from their store for a whole bunch of reasons, not the least of which is that it seems it hardly ever works properly! It's so annoying that they haven't even given a REASON why they won't sell stuff on the Market.

Great, wanted to see this game in action for a while now.

Now that I've got it installed, I'm getting the ol' "Low on space" notification. Any way to avoid this? Will installing to SD card help, and if so, how is this done?

Thanks for the tip AC.
Very nice indeed, great game and a must for every Android user.
Works great on my SGS i9000.

Cheers.

@rabaker07 how did you get it installed? I haven't been able to download it on my Captivate. I tired the mentioned "tricks" and nothing. So much easier if it was int he market. I don't think I can install from the browser thanks to AT&T. I eitehr need the apk or it needs to be in the market.

Installed on my Incredible, downloaded the 130mb file in under 4 minutes over wifi. Works perfectly. Thanks Gameloft.

Not sure if people caught the twitter comment from Gameloft about the Captivate not being eligible. They are WRONG. I've been playing the game for the past hour or longer on mine. YOu will need to get the SWM to install it. Just choose the Samsung GT-I9000 Galaxy S option from the list and it works fine.

I've tried the i9000 and Vibrant options... I still get the "not supported" error when I click thru to the link. I'm on Cognition 2.3B6.

Ah well.

It's really simple, I've done it with other apps. You download the file to your phone, you dock your phone to your computer, look for the download(s0 folder and copy/cut the apks to your computer. I have them saved in a folder named APK in My Documents. Then make sure you are set for the SWM and click, worked great.

That is what I had been trying, but how do you download the .apk to your desktop if they give you a text message to get the app?

(EDIT) I tried the url on my desktop but it wants to charge for.

I figured it out. When you click the link that you are texted you can change the phone that it detects. Then select the i9000 and download. Then Copy to you pc and use the SWM to install it!

No need to download to your PC, I just got it straight to my phone by editing the download URL to use a different phoneId. Get your download URL, then change phoneID=#### to phoneId=4350

I think I can tell you the reason why, its the ROM you are using that is making it problematic. If these are optimized for the phones themselves, they may very well be set to work on certain ROM components that cooked roms do not have.

Asphalt 5 is in the Android Market, and it is a Gameloft App, not sure why they don't have the others, but given the Droid X has a larger and better screen then my iTouch I am getting games for the Droid and will happily pay more for my platform.

I didn't have to choose phone. I just went to AC on my mobile browser and hit the link. Downloaded, installed, got update, force closed, relaunched and away I went.

Didn't get to play last night, I had a Christmas party, played a bit today though and it works flawlessly. No lag or choppiness. The graphics look great on my 4" SAMOLED! GT-I9000M

Thanks for the heads up AC! This should hold me over till Diablo III is finally released in 2025? :/

Downloaded Dungeon Hunter just fine on my HTC Incredible. Checked out the Gameloft Twitter and they hinted that another free Android title will be up this week! :D
