DMM’s 5/5/17 Freebie Friday: Android Apps

Welcome to DMM’s 5/5/17 Freebie Friday!
This week’s Freebie Friday offers a cornucopia of mobile game apps for Android. Here are 10 of the most downloaded AND highest-rated FREE apps (4/5 stars or better) from Amazon’s Android App Store as of this writing.

Remember that free apps may include in-app purchase (IAP) options or be ad-supported, but given that these apps have been given very high ratings by MANY consumers, where IAP links or ads are present they must be pretty unobtrusive. Descriptions below are from the apps’ product pages.

Mage & Minions – Fight spectacular real-time battles against hordes of skeletons, robots, beasts, demons, aliens, dragons and many other minions.
