Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Joining Hands

Today's Free App of the Day is Joining Hands
Originally $1.99

From the product page: Enter the Whispering Woods and meet the Peablins! They are curious little creatures who share a common belief: hold hands with your friends and the Bogeyman won't take you. This has worked as long as they can remember so it must be true. Join the Peablins on their quest to find all their siblings and cousins! Basic gameplay: drag and drop the Peablins so that all the hands in the level are joined and all the Peablins are happy. And remember: Leave no hand behind! 

This is a attractive, fun and sometimes challenging logic puzzle. Not at all aimed only at kids, despite the look of the main character, the Peablins. You get a set number of Peablins per level. The Peablins have one more more hands and are placed on a hexagonal grid. (Think Chinese Checkers, those of you who know Chinese Checkers).

 You have to arrange the Peablins so that no matter how many hands the Peablin has, each hand is holding another Peablin's hand. You also need to cover the hexagon with the star to gain full credit. There's a time element, too, though you aren't as far as I can tell right now, able to replay to improve your time. Be sure to go to "Extras" when starting the game and set up a profile. You can play without doing so, but by setting up a profile, each member of the family can have their own game going. And you'll probably want to!

 A level in progress can be paused and restarted, or just paused. If the level is finished, you have to go back to the level menu and then replay the game (if, for example, you didn't cover the hexagon with a star). Replaying for a better time, as I mentioned, isn't possible. Four star game. Five if you could improve your time. The one two-star review complains about the network location permission.

9 of 10 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
