Monument Valley is the biggest prize in the latest Amazon app giveaway. The online retail giant has put $50 worth of paid Android apps and games on sale for the always-excellent price of free.

The clever Monument Valley game includes the add-on Ida’s Dream, which was formerly an in-app purchase. The Forgotten Shores addition will still cost $1.99, but it’s well worth it for the challenging and visually impressive game.

The goal is to get you to check out its alternative Amazon Appstore and get invested in the ecosystem. With a bunch of paid apps and games for free Amazon hopes you’ll buy future apps from them instead of Google Play.
