The Google Play Store Free App of the Week section will highlight the weekly offer on popular apps which all of them that supposed to be a paid title will become free of charge for only a week. According to 9TO5Google, consumers can download the first free game app of the week, "Card Wars-Adventure Time" which normally priced at $2.99.
