Amazon Free App of the Day: Muffin Knight

Damn, this week must be the week for crappy giveaways from the Amazon Appstore! Today’s free Amazon app, Muffin Knight, didn’t even have enough on its preview page to get me even remotely interested. I wasn’t even going to download it until I realized that I owe it to our readers to test the waters before I go on bad mouthing the game.

The game plays like a side-scroller, you run left and right trying to gather as many muffins as you can from where ever they randomly appear. Of course there are a few obstacles and creatures you must avoid but the biggest threat is the games software bugs. I couldn’t keep the game from freezing up and eventually uninstalled itself (doing me a favor I guess).

The story line didn’t really make any sense to me, why is a knight at all interested in muffins? Wouldn’t he rather be slaying dragons or something? Instead you are set out on a mission by some old lady who’s only request is to gather hundreds of muffins. The more muffins you gather, the more money you get. You can use money to upgrade your weapons and unlock different characters. I wasn’t able to get this far because of all the issues I was having so I can’t really recommend that you try this app.

At the every other day price of $2.99, I am surprised to see that this game has maintained a 3 1/2 star rating. Maybe there is something I am missing and my hardware prevents me from experiencing something that others seem to enjoy. If you still want to go ahead and give it a try, head on over to Amazon for the free download. If you don’t have the Amazon Appstore on your device, be sure to check out our Quick Tip page for help. Jump past the break for a couple screenshots.
