These are the Free Games on Amazon Luna for Prime Members in May

Amazon is continuing it’s 3rd month of offering Prime members the ability to play select games for free through the Amazon Luna cloud gaming service. For the entire month of May, Prime members can play the motorcycle racing game Ride 4, the first-person sword slashing game Ghost Runner, the stunt driving game Monstor Truck Championship, and the classic arcade shooter Metal Slug 3. Amazon is also adding a few new games in May for those that are subscribed to the various Luna channels. Luna+ Channel subscribers can now play Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, Retro Channel subscribers are gaining Capcom Arcade Stadium, and Family Channel can now play Get Packed. Remember, you can now use a smart phone as a virtual controler to play these Luna games if you don’t have a physical gamepad. It’s certainly not ideal, but good enough to at least see how good your connection to the service is before shelling out for something like the Luna Controller.

Amazon Luna cloud gaming is now available on Chromebooks, Fire 7, HD 8, and HD 10 tablets — No Controller Needed

Amazon has expanded the availability of its Luna cloud gaming service to Fire tablets and Chromebooks. Just like with Fire TV devices, playing on a Fire tablet does not require an invitation first. When playing on a Fire tablet, you actually don’t need a controller since Amazon has created touch controls. Obviously, having a gamepad like the Luna Controller will be a much better experience, but touch controls might be fine for simple games. At the very least, they’re a good way to try the service without first committing to buy anything. All Fire 7, HD 8, and HD 10 tablets from 2018 and newer are compatible, which means 8th-gen or newer models. You can check a Fire tablet’s generation by going to Settings > Device Options and looking under the “Device Model” or “About Fire Tablet” section. The full list of compatible Luna devices and browsers can be found here. In conjunction with Luna’s expansion to Fire tablets, Amazon is offering a Fire HD 8 + Luna Controller bundle for $115.98, which saves you $44, and a Fire HD 10 + Luna Controller bundle for $155.98, which saves you $64.
