Gameloft has agreed to change their policy on Android HD+ games sold thru their store. This is a welcome change considering Gameloft was not allowing users to re-download already purchased games. The unfair policy was changed after pressure from the Android community regarding the issue. Gameloft’s store still sells games at more expensive prices than the Market, which is also angering Android users who may have purchased the game in-store and then seen the discounted price elsewhere. Gameloft released a great deal of new high-definition games in mid-May, but the games were subjected to terrible reviews by Android users facing a mess of problems on their phones with force closes and failures. While the HD Android games were a nice change for Android gamers who are used to getting the short end of the stick due to the iPhone, the games weren’t quite up to par. A preview of the games can be seen in the video below:
“Hello Dave, We’d like to announce you that policy regarding Android HD+ games sold through our own store is currently changed to allow you to re-download a game that you paid for. Unfortunately this change will take a bit of time but rest assured we will announce once it is live. Thank you for your patience. Take care,
Customer Care Manager
Hopefully Gameloft continues to take steps in the right direction to improve its support for its HD Android games.
