If you love to fish……….with dynamite, this game is for you. Super Dynamite Fishing is a fun, fairly addictive fishing game. Yet your objective is to use unconventional means to catch the fish. You basically take control of the games character, which from the looks of him, he’s a poor good ol’ boy, sportin’ a trucker hat, overalls and a five o’clock shadow. Due to his lack of money he goes in to fishing to get paid. Any other normal fishing game you’d take your pole and cast in to the waters and see what you can pull out. Not this game. Here you visit the weapon shop and buy the required equipment, as in dynamite and shotguns so you can get out on that river and murder some fish, and even possibly find some buried treasure. Also as you rack up the cash, you can gradually upgrade your boat, five different styles. From a shower tub which you start with to a river boat, a viking ship, a battleship, and my personal favorite, The Nautilus from 20,000 Leauges Under The Sea.
Growing up, I have always enjoyed playing pool. I was always at the pool hall and I eventually bought my own table. I never got into playing on a computer or phone, but when I saw Amazon had Pool Break Pro as today’s free app, I immediately downloaded it.
I was immediately impressed. I can’t compare it to any other pool games, but I feel confident that this one has to be one of the best if not the best. A lot of people must agree because it has a rating of 4.53 stars out of 2,217 ratings (from the Android Market).
As the heading says, Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is the Amazon App Stores free app of the day.
In this real-time strategy game, you start off as the newly crowned king, Raynald II, who takes the task to rid the kingdom of rats, which under the previous king (your father) named these same rats, “untouchable holy animals”. Each level of the game you are required to complete various tasks. This includes creating guilds for wizards and warriors, marketplaces, and other buildings. Within the buildings you can purchase heroes. You cannot directly command the heroes/units, but you can bribe them with money to take on tasks. All in taking strides to rid your kingdom of these rats. To beat each level you must find certain building to reach your objective. Hit the break for more, and even a video preview from HeroCraft.

I took the time to play this for a short while, and really enjoyed it. If you love a game similar to tetris, but with a story to it, then you certainly dig this game. Brought to us by the developer RealNetworks, it regularly sells for $2.99 in the Amazon App Store. So since its free all day today, you’ll want to hit your app store app and get Collapse!
TalkAndroid is happy to bring you the first installment in a daily column where one of our staff spends a little time with the free app Amazon is offering and gives you a quick summary of the app’s highlights and whether or not it’s worth your time. Today’s offering is Roller, and if the picture above doesn’t tell you everything you need to know, it’s a Skee Ball app. While there is an ad-supported free version in the market, Amazon’s offering you the ad-free version which is usually $.99.
The concept is exactly what you’d expect: Skee Ball. Flick your finger up the track to send the ball flying into one of the holes at the end for points. It works just like the Skee Ball machine at your local arcade…and, fun fact, I’m about as good at the Android version as I am at the real thing! (Not very.)
What immediately struck me about the game was the level of polish. It has options to adjust the sensitivity of the “flick,” decent sound effects (which I immediately turned off, so I can play at work), and an excellent level of responsiveness. It’s also got multiple offerings for the color and style of your ball, and three different skins for the lane. It also tracks your high score, so you can see whether or not you do, in fact, get better with practice.
Bottom line: Get it. It’s less than 3MB, it’s free, and it’s a fun little time-killer. There’s no reason not to grab it from the Amazon Appstore.
Be sure and check back every day for our coverage of the daily free apps from Amazon!!
