Android Omnibus for Hosted Games now available

There’s a new app from Hosted Games available for Android called Hosted Games. It’s an “omnibus app,” a single app that collects all of our Hosted Games titles in one place. It’s just like the iOS omnibus we’ve had for more than a year now, but now it works on Android.

If you have an Android phone, please give it a try!

What’s next:

  • Soon, we’ll also release a “Choice of Games” omnibus app for the Google Play Store. We’re going to let the HG omnibus sit for a week or so, then release the Choice of Games omnibus when we’re pretty sure we’ve fixed major bugs.

No doubt you have a lot of questions, so we’ve written up an Omnibus FAQ. It answers these questions in more detail:

Uh, it looks like I spoke too soon. The link to the omnibus is live for me because I’m the developer, but it won’t be visible to the public for another couple of hours. Sit tight!

EDIT: It’s ready now!

I’m willing to give it a go. So far I like what I see, but I’m at work now and will give me feedback later.

So it would seem that restoring purchases is a hassle, and doesn’t work for me at least…

It is a hassle, but it does work. If you’re having trouble, you’ll need to email support-gps-omnibus@hostedgames.org.

At first I thought I had an issue but turns out I used the wrong email address. sigh My mistake.

But so far from looking, I kind of like how it is organized and how I’m able to use the “favorite” feature to make scrolling through the list of my purchases easier.

I am glad it is, I had trouble finding it before I saw the Link. But it looks great and many games we’re easily connected.

God, yeah! The Play store’s search system/algorithm is notoriously bad, so thank goodness for the link!

Great app idea, no problems with restoring purchases, looks good (and extremely useful) so far. Definitely helps with managing multiple purchased games.

Nice! Any plans for an omnibus for the non-hosted games too?

It’s been answered in the OP! :smiley:

Congrats on the release! Now I could play my unread HG games right now in one place. :smiley:

I was doing it incorrectly, but the support was very helpful and now it’s all been sorted out. Thanks

Just a small suggestion- maybe add a couple of the covers of the latest HGs as they are put into the omnibus (cycle them through as new ones are released) on the preview pictures as well? It looks more eye-catching to new players than just the text if it were to turn up in their feed or if you’re brought to the page for an update.

Restoring purchases didn’t work for me either. I have no idea what my password is (if I have one at all?) And it won’t let me restore anything when I tick lost password. I just get an error. I’ll have to send an email.

Anyone know how you can leave star ratings? And can you leave reviews?
