Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Fish Jam

Today's Free App of the Day is Fish Jam
Originally $0.99

A matching game with piranha-like fish.  Bug eyes and big teeth abound. The game opens in landscape mode. Annoyingly, it opens upside down if you have the Fire HDX oriented with the camera at the top. Then, it switches to portrait mode, and doesn't flip.

 The camera will be on the left side. The game starts with a brief tutorial. Very brief. It doesn't tell you very much--be sure to read the blurb; it tells you more. Basically, you try to catch as many yellow, blue and orange fish as possible on the rotating rings as you can before time is up. As the game proceeds, the rings move faster and faster. You can play in two person or one person mode. You can also turn the sound on or off.

 You can tap or swipe to catch fish. It works well to hold the Fire and tap or swipe with your thumbs as if you are texting. Fish caught in a row provide a multiplier. I don't find the game particularly compelling. Graphics are good, it's bright and attractive, but I think I'm getting repetitive injury syndrome from playing. I'd give it 3 stars. OK as a Free App of the Day but I don't think I'd pay for it.

10 of 16 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!
