Act Fast — These Games Are Free for a Limited Time to Help with Coronavirus

Staying inside during the coronavirus pandemic isn't easy for most of us. As important as it is to keep away from others, it can be challenging to keep to ourselves day after day. That's why mobile game developers are stepping in to help; many are making their games free for a limited time, to provide some much-needed fun during scary times.

So far, it has been quite a rolling process. As such, not all of the games will be free at the same time, and not all games will return to their original prices at the same time, either. We're sure we'll see new games pop up as developers follow one another's lead, so make sure to check back for all the latest free titles.
