    Hello,

    I'm new to Android.

    Have seen in reviews and comments about games that advertising pops up in the free games and is annoying.

    Do all free games have advertising?

    Do games that you pay for have advertising?

    Thanks

    First question: No, not all free games have advertising, but many do or they are 'lite' versions, which are basically demos.

    Second question: None that I've seen. If you pay, ads are usually gone.

    Ads in games are an alternate way of letting people play games for free but still generates revenue for the developer. Usually the ads only show up in menus and such and are not on display of the main game, so they're as unobtrusive as possible.

    Hi jerofld,

    Your quick reply is much appreciated.

    I will advise the kids, probably better to buy some games as they are relatively cheap.

    Will also try some of the free ones and see how it goes.

    Thanks
