The Jackbox Party Pack 3 has just gone on sale for the first time. It’s currently 50% off at $12.50. That might still sound like a lot for a Fire TV game, but this pack includes 5 unique and very popular party games in one app. The included games are Quiplash 2 (3-8 players), Trivia Murder Party (1-8 players), Guesspionage (2-8 players), Fakin’ It (3-6 players), and Tee K.O. (3-8 players). The great thing about Jackbox games are that they all allow you to use phones and tablets as their controllers, so you do not need multiple remotes or game controllers to play with a bunch of people. These games are compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models and of course work with both remotes and game controls.
Cube Jump Dash, has just gone free for the first time. This simple game was released a little over a year ago and has been $0.99 ever since. It’s a different take on the Flappy Bird style of game and features a fun 8-bit inspired retro soundtrack. Cube Jump Dash is compatible with all Fire T\V and Fire TV Stick models and works with either a game controller or the remote control.
The game Cyboid has just gone on sale for $1.99. This matches the lowest price the game has been. It is one of the few first-person shooter games available on the Fire TV and the only one with original high-speed 3D gaming, reminiscent of classic shooter games like Quake. The developer tells me the sale will last until June 21 and it is to celebrate their latest update which has improved aiming, game controller support, and performance in general. It’s compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models, and works with either a remote or game controller.
BRIK eXtreme, a variation of the classic arcade games Arkanoid and Breakout, has just gone on sale for $2.09. This isn’t much of a drop from the regular price of $2.99, but this game has only been on sale once before, which was over 2 years ago, so I figured it’s worth mentioning for those interested in some classic 80’s arcade action at a discount. The game is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models, and works with both a remote or game controller.
The Mezzmo app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick has just gone on sale for $1.20. This is media player app was released exactly a year. This is the lowest price it has ever been and only the second time it has ever been on sale. Mezzmo is a media player app that is often forgot next to giants like Kodi and Plex. It can stream files from any DLNA / UPnP media server, so if you already have a Plex server running, you can be up and running with Mezzmo in seconds. Of course, Mezzmo does make their own server software aswell.
If you’re curious about giving Mezzmo a try, they have a free trial app you can check out before committing to buy the full version. The free version is full featured and identical to the paid app, but expires after 15 days of use. Unlike Plex, which relies on a monthly subscription model to access all features, Mezzmo just sells their software for a one-time fee with nothing else to pay later. Mezzmo is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV stick models.
The game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has just dropped down to half price at $4.99. The last time this game went on sale was well over a year ago. This game was originally released on the Xbox and has since been ported over to the Fire TV and other Android devices. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is compatible with both Fire TV set-top box models, as well as the newer 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick. You will need a game controller to play the game, since it’s not compatible with the Fire TV remote.
Tennis Champs Returns is a retro tennis game that has just gone free for the first time. This game was released a little over a month ago and has been $2.99 ever since. It’s a remake of the original Tennis Champs game from the Amiga PC. This Fire TV version of the game is programmed by the developer of the original Amiga version. Tennis Champs Returns is compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models. It works with either a remote or game controller and features up to 4 player local multiplayer, as well as other game modes.

Several classic arcade games have gone on sale for $1.49. The games are Galax, Galax Zero, Radiant Galaga, Meteorite Smash Classic, Meteorite Smash, and Jumping Jack. The developer of these games tells me they’ll be going back to their regular price of $1.99 in a couple days. All games are compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models, and they all work with either a game controller or the Fire TV remote.
AirPlay/DLNA Receiver PRO has just gone on sale for $1.99. This is the new lowest price this app has ever been. It has gone on sale for $3.99 a few times in the past, but has never before dropped to $1.99. I’m pretty sure this is the best selling AirPlay receiver app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. It allows you to send video and mirror the screen from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to the Fire TV. This app has been around since 2014 and has been receiving constant updates to keep it compatible with the latest versions of iOS, which is the most important thing to look for in an AirPlay Receiver app. It’s compatible with all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models.
