Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Hero Mages & Bonus Pick!

Today's Free App of the Day is Hero Mages
Originally $2.99

Only three reviews so far, two of them four star and above.  From the product description:

Hero Mages is a turn-based tactical strategy fantasy game that combines the fun of role playing games (RPGs) with competitive and cooperative cross-platform multiplayer gameplay. Designed and developed by a single individual driven to share his passion for gaming with the world, Hero Mages also blends the best elements of tabletop miniature and collectible card games.

Hero Mages is played from a top-down perspective allowing the player full visibility over the battlefield. Each player commands a party of three fantasy heroes, including a powerful mage. Equipped with a set of dice and a hand of cards representing magical spells, players take turns commanding their party of heroes. With the power to unleash the wrath of the elements, summon heinous creatures, and manipulate the world itself, the player's mage is their ultimate hero as they leverage skill, politics, and luck to eliminate their enemies and emerge victorious!

Because the FAOTD has so few reviews and I'm unable to test it, plus we haven't had one in awhile, I'm offering a KindleBoards Alternaate App of the Day (KBAAD):  MapQuest

This is a mapping program.  You must have an Internet connection for it to work, so it won't work for en route navigation unless you have a hot spot.  However, it works very well for route planning, and was able to locate me within a few hundred yards of my location using WiFi triangulation.  It needs the signal to download the actual map data, and you cannot cache the map data as you can, for example, on the Google maps app on the iPad.  My only real quibble with the program is that, if you do create a route, there doesn't seem to be a way to save the route instructions for use when you are actually travelling.  If one of you knows of a way, let me know!

Have fun!
