Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame, an action platforming game, has gone on sale for $0.69 when factoring in the Amazon coin reward. The regularly $2.99 game has dropped to $0.99 with a 30 coin reward. Apart from the one day this game was offered for free, this is the cheapest price this game has ever been. The game features 14 3D levels and epic console caliber gameplay. The game is only compatible with the Fire TV and requires a game controller to play.
Seems like a money grab game with poor mechanics that try to force users to do iap. Reviews are pretty terrible.
Jason, thanks for the comment. I’m not going to waste the time (or money, even though it’s only a buck) on this one.
I’d love to see permissions and adware included in the description for AFTVNews App Deals. Apps aren’t worth it, even if they’re free or a buck, if they present serious privacy issues.

This app can use Non-Ad push notifications (Pushwoosh) to your device and it can access your accounts. It contains the adware Tapjoy. It uses Flurry Analytics, Amazon Insights and Google Analytics to track your game behavior to notify the developer where you are in the game to assist in the push notifications. It uses BrainTree and Fortumo to assist in using your credit cards to accept payment and any one of payment methods to sell you IAPs. It contains Facebook code built into the app but you still have to allow access to your account. It includes Google Cloud Messaging to send you messages to your smart device. It is normally harmless but it can be used to include spamming.
The app installed 14.68MB into my device memory and 55.88MB onto my SD card memory automatically.”
