Monument Valley is one of the most beautiful games on mobile, and one of the most unique; it’s been recognized all over for its brilliance. If you haven’t already downloaded it to your Android device, you’re missing out, but don’t worry — thanks to Amazon, you can get it absolutely free for today only.

The Fire Phone hasn’t been anywhere near as successful as Amazon hoped it would be. Sales have been so bad, in fact, that the device has ended up costing the retail giant around $170 million. But Amazon knows where it has gone wrong, and it has every intention of making more smartphones.

Amazon is quickly learning that 3D gimmicks and a lack of third-party app support aren’t attributes consumers tend to look for in a smartphone, with one report suggesting that the retail giant has sold fewer than 35,000 Fire Phones since the device made its debut back in July.
