Gloomy puzzle game Contre Jour comes to Android for $1.99

Contre Jour, a dark and gloomy puzzle game that has received numerous awards as an iOS app, is finally coming to Android today. It's got a dark vibe, but that adds to the interesting gameplay that will lead you through various types of levels. It's hard to explain, but something about the gray scale design is compelling. The trailer on the Play Store gives you a good idea of what you're getting into.

Unfortunately, the game doesn't have price parity with the Apple ecosystem, which has the game for just $0.99. Either way, go ahead and give it a try at the Play Store link above for $1.99, this looks like a game that'll be worth your money.

  • Apparently this is an Electronic Arts game if that's an issue for people. I bought it and got a receipt from Google Play saying it was Electronic Arts, Inc even though it says Chillingo on the play store. Just a FYI if any of you disapprove of buying their games.
  • When I followed the link above it said it wasn't available in my country. For those that are having the same issues, just do a search for it in the Play Store. Here is the link that worked for me.
  • Reminds me of world of goo. That game was a rip off. No levels ever got added and was easy to beat. I'm not spending 1.99 while ios is .99.
  • It's great that developers both (a) complain regularly that they don't sell as many games on the Android platform as they do on iOS, and (b) regularly sell their games for a higher price on Android as on iOS. Coincidence?
  • The prices are higher because they don't sell more on Android, not the other way around. Competition and higher sales volume drives price down. By the same token, Contre Jour is $2.99 on Windows Phone.
  • That may be what they think they are doing, but I debated for 2 weeks before buying this game, while I buy 99c games without a second thought.
