Bring out the cake and candles as the Amazon Appstore for Android celebrates its first birthday. And to commemorate this milestone, entertainment enthusiasts can take complete advantage of various eye-catching deals that are set to roll out all through the week. According to the company, the festivities extend to many well-known games and apps already available on the virtual platform.

Some of the titles featured in the array include Fruit Ninja, Splashtop Remote Desktop, TuneIn Radio Pro, Pac-Man, Monopoly and Dr. Seuss’s The Shape of Me and Other Stuff. Furthermore, owners of the Kindle Fire and other Android based devices can also indulge in Wolfram Alpha, Tetris, The Lost City, Jamie Oliver’s 20 Minute Meals and AccuWeather Platinum.

The party kicked off yesterday, as one of the acme paid apps dubbed Plants vs. Zombies went up for grabs tagged at just $0.99, which is a 67% off from its original $2.99 price. Today, Amazon continued to tread on similar grounds by offering two more apps at discounted prices. From sporting individual tags of $2.99, Dr. Seuss’s The Shape of Me and Other Stuff and Wolfram can now be purchased for $1.49 and $0.99, respectively.
