App Deal: Cyboid game for Fire TV is Free for the first time

Get Cyboid for Free

The Fire TV game Cyboid has just gone free for the first time. This is a high-speed 3D first-person shooter game that is reminiscent of the old Quake games. The game normally costs $1.99, but the developer is experimenting with a new subscription model that unlocks all in-app purchasable extras in the game for a $0.99 monthly subscription, so they’re offering it for free to gauge the new option. Even if you don’t pay the subscription or buy any of the in-app items, there is plenty of fun to be had with what is included with the core game, which is what you’re getting for free during this sale. The sale is scheduled to end on April 5th. The game is also available on sale and for free for Fire tablets as a separate app.

  1. Thank you so much for posting the news, Elias!

    Actually, the Amazon versions have are a few subscription options:

    $0.99 per two months, $1.49 each quarter, $2.49 for six months or $3.99 for the year.

    Google Play doesn’t have a bi-monthly option, so that version of the game only has the $0.99/month.

    thanks for the free game! it’s been awhile since I’ve seen a free game posted here, hope to see more. anything free is great on firetv.

    • You’re very welcome — I’m glad you like it and thank YOU for the “thanks” — I appreciate it!

      Based on the number of installs over the past week I’m making the game free permanently — in fact, it’s already free on Amazon and the next update will do the same on Google Play.

      There’s a few new features in the next updeate… the Touch Layout is now configurable (due to popular demand/complaint!) and you can configure the Touch Overlay to be always on when learning the controls.

      The next version should be ready in about a week or so and it’ll be a combined app (finally!) on Amazon, so no more seperate Fire TV / Fire Tablet versions.
