    It appears Camel Games is now giving these three games away. I'm also left wondering what happened to their other games such as Super Tumble, as only the Lite version is left. Maybe that's going free, too? Hyper Jump is also missing from my latest search (whereas the Lite version is there).



    I'm somewhat in shock as these are some quality games!? Hopefully we'll find out the full story soon.

    Only ShootU is free now. Bummer, I was interested in the other two. What's curious is the update log in AppBrain doesn't show that the prices increased recently. I would have expected it to if the price was reduced and returned back to normal.

    Edit: AppBrain isn't in sync with the Market where the Ad versions are free. I guess that's better than nothing. With ads it's not quite free in my opinion.

    cool... downloaded ShootU and BlowUp last night for free. (ad supported now)

    I see now they aren't even in the market.. odd


    I bought HyperJump a few weeks ago, but that's gone too.


    Most likely they'll be back shortly, I hope.

    Yep, they appaear to now be Ad supported and the titles now include (Ad) as a suffix to indicate that.

    While a search for 'Camel Games' no longer shows them you can use the QR Codes from the link in my original post to still get them. They are there.

    I cannot find any of these either. I certainly wouldn't mind grabbing them for free.

    I got them last night by following the link in the original post above. Just you the barcode scanner to get them. Easy. Games are great for free.

    It appears the free full ones with the ads were a fluke since the Market now wants me to upgrade them to the lite versions again. The full versions that you pay for are now back on the Market,.....at least that's what I see. Did someone at Camel make a mistake or what?! :thinking:

    it was no mistake as they had written a new discription saying full game now free.

    more like they regretted doing it within a few hours and didnt know what to do so took em all off market and reverted back.

    Yeah I wonder if a bitter ex-employee or something might have done it. Seems all a bit too odd.

    Just don't update and all is good.

    I have about 6 apps that are on my update list that I refuse to update for various reasons. I wish I could take them off the list

    I thought you could do that but I cannot find where. It's not on the market page or in applications manager... unless I'm missing something
