Gameloft giving away Dungeon Hunter HD for free

That Christmas deals thing Gameloft is running has DELIVERED THE GOODS today, with the game publisher deciding to give away a copy of its Dungeon Hunter HD Android game to anyone that wants it.

With this being an “HD” reworking, the handsets included in the promotion are rather limited – you’ll need something with a decent processor and high-res screen.

Also, it’s not found on the Android Market – it’s a direct download to your phone via Gameloft’s site. Get the full list of included phones and do everything you need to make it work over on the game’s listing page.

  1. OK I chose my phone from the list (Desire Z), got a text, clicked on the link and it says: “Sorry, but there are no available game for your mobile. If you are using a web browser, please try to connect with your wap browser.”. Any clue?

    Same here. If this is what I can expect from Gameloft in general they won’t be getting any purchases from me.

  3. Same for me.

    They’ve put up a tweet saying they’re extending the scheme because of the troubles. They know their system is a bag o’ shite.

    Same problem here. This is exactly why Gameloft need to be using the Android Market!

  6. HTC Desire – I successfully downloaded it over WiFi.
    I DID have to change my browser settings to enable the “mobile view”
    As soon as I did this it recognised my phone and gave me the download.

    What I don’t like is the permissions it wants…:
    * Edit, Read and/or receive SMS/MMS
    * Full Internet access
    * Modify SD Card contents
    * SEND SMS MESSAGES?? (Why does a game need this!?)
    * read phone state and identy
    * Change network conectivity, change WiFi State, prevent phone from sleeping.

    A little OTT for a game no?

    I have downloaded but not sure if I will install TBH.


    • Yeah, the permissions are questionable…I understand the need for 4 of them but edit, read, send and receive SMS/MMS??
      I don’t see how that is needed

    Worked on my Desire pretty seamlessly, although the file name had “Motorola Milestone” in it – and when you launch it for the first time it asks you to download 241MB of data before playing the game!

    No thanks.

      Why not? Those MB are stored on your SD card. Most major games require additional data, since they’re so graphically advanced. You’re missing out :)

    No such luck on the ZTE Blade, I’m going to try fake it in the build.prop, see what happens.

    why no concern about the overreaching app permissions?

    • True, it even says in the text that message rates may apply. I guess I’ll pass until this company becomes, sort of, normal.

  10. Has anybody had any luck on Desire Z/HD? I’ve tried enabling and disabling mobile view and I do get different websites but I still don’t seem to be able to download anything.

    Just got it working on my ZTE Blade.

    If you want to get it to work, just change your build.prop so it reads like this.

    ro.product.model=HTC Desire

    and order the desire version.

  12. Hmm I click Desire/bravo and get sent to £5 buy option.. not freebie..

  13. ahhh, change browser on phone to “mobile view” got freebiee. Happy days :D

  14. I got it to work on my Desire Z. What I did was:
    – Visited on my phone
    – Clicked/tapped on “Your Model: HTC Desire Z”
    – Chose “HTC” as manufacturer
    – Chose “HTC Desire/Bravo” (choosing Nexus One worked as well)
    – Tapped “Free Download”

    The .apk was downloaded and installed and works beautifully :D
    I’m guessing choosing other makes/models would work as well

    Hope it work for you :D

  15. I get the same as people above me. It wont download, not even an option. I have to pay 5 dollar.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
