What's the catch?
After you've played the game for a while and decided you like it, you are asked to buy the game if you want to keep playing. Buying the game gives you full rights to play it anytime, and usually unlocks extra features like high score tracking, or additional access to certain game types. There's no obligation — buy only the games you like best.

How long do I get to play a downloadable game for free?
At the beginning of each game, you will see a screen that tells you how much longer you can try the game for free. Once you've used up your free trials, the game will inform you that to keep playing, you must buy it. You will see a button that reads "Buy it now". Click that button to go to our secure purchase form (you will need to be connected to the internet in order to buy a game).

Make sure you are connected to the internet. Start the game you want to buy. The loading screen will appear, and on it is a button to "Buy It Now".

Can I send this game to a friend?
Yes you can, but it's much easier to send them a web link so they can download it themselves. Each game has a "tell a friend" button in its loading screen, and this button lets you send a custom e-mail to a friend, telling them about the game and including a direct link so they can download it directly from us if they want to.
