Quick Look at Today’s Free Amazon App: Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

image

Here’s an educational game for kids ages 2-5 years of age as the Amazon App Store will tell you. I downloaded the game this morning and played it for a good while, getting a feel for it and its difficulty. Good news, I aced it! I jumped right in and picked the lemon because it started with the letter ‘L’. I then came to the color puzzle, I pick green correctly. I was proud of myself. Then I continued on to the next puzzle, which if I wasn’t the genius that my mother tells me I am, this may have been difficult, ‘put the fruit back together’. Yea, it was a breeze. Next was ”match the fruit’. This takes a few seconds longer than the others, as you have 8 tiles and more than likely you won’t pick the matching two tiles every time.

Quick Look at Today’s Amazon Free App: Chalk Ball

Today’s free Amazon app is called Chalk Ball, normally priced at $1.99.  Chalk Ball is a reincarnation of the classic “draw a line to bounce the ball where you want it to go” style game, but with a chalkboard art design.  Your goal is to draw chalk lines off which your ball will bounce, to ultimately either bounce into a gold star, or just to keep it in the air as long as possible.  Every time you draw a line, it depletes your chalk reserve, but hitting other chalk balls floating around will replenish it, and there are little chalk spirals that will completely refill it.  The concept, art design, and level of polish make this app an absolute gem.

Welcome to Air Control, today’s free app in the Amazon App Store. In this very addictive, yet simple game, you work as an Air Traffic Controller, and your mission is to guide aircrafts including  jets, helicopters, and zeppelins to a safe landing.

Then, as you set the course of the previous aircraft, another comes into view and you have to create a path for this new planes in a way that it will not collide with the other planes that are on approach to the landing strip. Concentrate on the path of each! You will direct every aircraft to the landing strip, as the sky gets crowded quickly.

Quick Look at Today’s Free Amazon App: Wave Launcher

Wave Launcher is a unique, gesture-enabled, quick action-bar for Android. It resembles a well-known and loved feature on WebOS phones like the Palm-Pre and works system-wide.

There are a number of apps that accomplish the same thing. Basically it is a shortcut to your most used or favorite apps. You can free up space from your home screens because you can select from up to 12 of your favorite apps to be in the launcher.

Wave Launcher is enabled by swiping your finger from the bottom of your screen towards the middle. The wave will appear and you will see the icons of your selected apps. You then move your finger from right to left to select the app you would like to run. As you move your finger right or left it resembles a wave.

Quick Look at Today’s Free Amazon App: 4 Player Reactor

image image

We all love free apps. Especially the free apps that normally aren’t free. And that’s what we have here again today. Amazon App Stores Friday the 6th free app of the day.

4 Player Reactor is a multi-player game, where you challenge up to 4 of your friends to various quick puzzle games. Or if you’d rather just challenge yourself, you can do that as well. The game is fairly educational, works on your motor skills, and reaction times. I will point out, I only played this game as a single player mind you, for a short while after downloading. I will say that even though I have one of the larger Android phones on the market, my Evo, I believe it still would seem a bit crowded having 4 players on this device. But the button for each player is fairly large, so it can still be fun and competitive playing head-to-head! Very curious to hear from our readers if they get a chance to play it in multi-player mode on a tablet. I would think the competition either way would get intense!

Hit the jump for detailed information and a YouTube video of the game.

Quick Look at Today’s Free Amazon App: Super Dynamite Fishing

image

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.

Quick Look at Today’s Free Amazon App: Pool Break Pro

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).
