Games are free. You can simply visit your Playstore depending on your phone to download any game of your choice. However, it has its limits because for you to move to the next stage, you have to make some inapp purchases that are definitely not free. This is where Appspace comes in. How? Well, Techmoran interviewed Kola Ladejobi and he told us how Nigerians can download games for almost free and much more. Excerpts
Can you tell us about Playzone?
Playzone is actually the name of the games app store from Appspace. Appspace was recently incorporated in Nigeria in March 2017. Launched on the 1st of October 2017, Playzone is a mobile gaming subscription app store that allows Nigerians with a monthly subscription of N400 download premium android games free and also offers free in-app purchases. Your subscription to Playzone also offers uninterrupted gameplay with No ads.
Nigerians love freebies, why should we pay to download games from Playzone?
I am a Nigerian and I know what if feels like having to buy each premium android game from other app stores. it will cost me a lot to pay and download them one by one and it saddens me. Secondly, even after downloading these games from other app stores, I will still have to use my real money again to purchase in-app items for enhancements or progressions to next levels. Today, with only N400 naira per month you can download as many of these top paid-for games for free from Playzone.
Playzone subscribers also enjoy free in-app coins, armour, swords and power-ups etc.. Access to all levels and all add-ons free. This you cant get on other Google play store. So Nigerians can enjoy unlimited premium game downloads and uninterpreted gameplay.
Is there any difference between downloading games on Google Play store and downloading on Playstore?
Yes, as I mentioned above, I will give some examples. On Google Play Store Garfield Kart today costs N445.00 to download the game, and you will notice a statement saying offers in-app purchases. This means that total cost to enjoying the game is N445.00 + VARIABLE NX.00 . which means after paying for the app, you will still have to be spending much more real naira to progress within the game. So imagine if you want to download more premium games like this, it will cost you much much more. However, downloading this same Garfield Kart from Playzone is free and you will also get free in-app gifts. So with only N400 per month, you can download many for like this free.
Secondly, on Google play store one might ask how about the free games, yes games like stormblades or subway surfers are free to download, but you notice a statement saying contains ads and offer in-app purchases. You will still spend real money to progress and fully enjoy the game. Again, people who download games like stormblades and subway surfers from Playzone will enjoy no interruptions from no ads and they will get free in-app gifts the more they play
Can you download Nigerian-made games on Playzone?
Oh Yes, this is one of the main reasons for Playzone app store, there are a lot of Nigerian gamers that a looking for platforms to showcase their games and the competition in Google Store is fierce and all their months of hard coding sometimes leads to discouragement. However today, Nigerians game developers can have their apps distributed on Playzone, not just in Nigeria but also globally. Nigerian game developers are welcome to upload their games on Playzone.
