Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Pirate Adventures: hidden object game

Today's Free App of the Day is Pirate Adventures: hidden object game
Originally $2.99

This is a hidden object game. The complaints are that there is too much talking and the same scene repeats over and over again. I think those are legitimate complaints. They are the same scenes over and over again within a chapter, and there is a lot of talking.  At least you don't have to tap to make the conversation advance, though if you do, you can make it move faster. You can also choose "Skip dialog" from the menu to skip the whole conversation.

I think that if you have a smaller screen device, it could be very hard to find objects. In fact, I think that if you have a smaller device, some of them can be quite difficult.  You can't zoom in on locations.  It does look like every chapter is a different location.  (I've done two chapters so far.)  And there are mini games.  If you like hidden object games, this one isn't perfect, but it is free! And it has a bit more variety than some of the reviews might indicate.

Though you do replay the same scene, sometimes you search by silhouette, sometimes by item name.  Sometimes you have to get all the instances of a similar item, such as candles or dice.  There are also "find the differences."  It is timed, and clicking randomly incurrs a 20 second time penalty.  There is a rechargable hint.

38 of 57 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!
