Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: The Howler

Today's Free App of the Day is The Howler
Originally $1.99

This is a simple and unique game. The illustrations are done in a steampunk style. The idea is to move your hot air balloon from an initial location to another location, in later levels picking up and dropping off packages. You control the balloon by tapping on the screen (or by voice, such as speaking/yelling at your device). Tapping (or yelling) lifts the balloon, not tapping (or silence) lowers the balloon. When you lift the balloon, it moves it into air currents designated by arrows on the side of the screen. You have to avoid crashing into buildings and spires or letting the balloon go too high, where it will be lost and you'll have to restart the level. There is a time element, too. You can run out of time and have to restart the level. You can restart the level at any time. I haven't tried controlling the balloon by voice as hubby is still asleep. ;D Pleasant game that performs exactly as advertised. I've played a few levels so far, and had to re-do a few to get there, but not unreasonably so. I'll be playing this one today. 12 of 14 reviews are four stars and above.
