      Thanks for tip. Honestly I prefer to pay 2 USD for a pack of games than seeing ad instantly everywhere... And I see that two games are already marked as "Coming Soon".

      Definitely is is worth to check it - so far it is almost the best I have seen on Chromecast and you can refund your money it if you do not like it...

      Might be someone can make a review here?
