$5 Hero of Sparta Android game is free for today only

It's three days before Christmas, and that means everyone in this country is broke from buying all their holiday gifts. Luckily for you, Gameloft is giving you a gift of its own - one of its best Android games, a $5 value, for free.

It's near the end of the publisher's 24 days of free mobile content, which started December 1. For the most part, these have been cheap casual games, or add-on content. But now that we're in the final swing, the prizes are getting bigger.

Hero of Sparta is an ambitious action adventure game for Android, featuring real-time combat, 360-degree fighting arenas, all sorts of attack combos to master, and even cinematic quick-time events. And yes, it's a total rip off of God of War.

The game normally costs $4.99 from the Android Market, and at midnight tonight will continue to cost $4.99. But until then, you can snatch it up at no cost at all.

And don't forget to keep checking Gameloft's blog for the final two days of the cheer-filled holiday giveaway.

    Ok, I can't access their site through my phone and when I go to the site on my computer, it says the game is still $4.99. WTF is going on?!?!?

    Gamelofts download system is such crap and there games are buggy as hell...they need to get on the damn market like normal developers. They never fix bugs either so if a game is broken it stays broken.

    I can't even get into their site, I just get a page saying "Forbidden". Any ideas?

    Gameloft doesnt like to post their games on android market, have to get from their site.
