So you’re a mobile gamer but don’t want to spend too much money on individual games. Verizon has teamed up with Extent to solve the problem, offering a game subscription service for Android using the GameTanium platform. For $5.99 a month, customers will gain access to a game library of over 100 titles (and over 50 tablet games) that they can play as much as they want. Titles include Doodle God, Fruit Ninja, and World of Goo.

GameTanium compiles games from various developers and offers them up for a monthly subscription. Much like a traditional app store, Extent will offer the apps in an easy to use interface that will give information about the games, including screenshots and customer reviews. Verizon is keen to point out the fast download speeds for the service using its network as well.

The GameTanium apps can be downloaded from Verizon’s own Apps on a wide range of Android devices. The company is offering a free trial for the service which will give you unlimited access for free days. After that, you’ll have to cough up the $5.99 a month to continue using the service. The subscription is automatically billed to your Verizon monthly statement, but any downloaded apps will still count towards your monthly data limit.
