Google In all honesty, this has taken far longer than I anticipated. Google, the world's largest internet advertising company, has removed several popular ad-blocking tools from the Play Store. While they are technically in the right to do so - they violate the Play Store developer distribution agreement - it's still a bit of a dick move. Luckily, though, unlike some other platforms, you can easily sideload the adblockers onto your Android device.

There are very often no alternatives to ad-infested games. If you play a lot, Android seriously sucks. For those of us who want to pay for a game, there's simply no option.

Games are now either freemium, or Riddled with ads. Usually both.

Oh, while i'm writing, no harm in some shameless advertisement of my own. Check out my new game, The Silent Age ;) No ads, no IAP.
