Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Sci-Fighters and Bonus App: Buttons and Scissors

Today's Free App of the Day is Sci-Fighters
Originally $1.29


Poorly reviewed game. The one star reviews cite crashes, a possible virus and boring game play. From the product page (typos come from the product page): The games idea is as simple a addicting: You and 3 opponents are set in an arena which is haunted by a monster. Each player tries to be the last man standing using classical 2d-gameplay mechanics. By using different weapons like flash grenades, a monster potion (turning you into a monster), an ice-rifle or even an automatic laser you are fighting for your life over and over again.

1 of 5 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Buttons and Scissors.


OK, I admit that this game intrigued me because, well, it's buttons and scissors, c'mon! I thought it might be too simple, but it's actually quite fun. It's not a match-3 as you might think from reading the blurb, but a logic problem where you have to clear all the buttons from the screen but cutting them off at least two at at time. You can only cut off buttons of the same color that have no other color buttons between them. 

It starts with a tutorial level and gets increasingly complicated over time. When you press on a button, your possible moves are shown. You can replay levels to try to improve your score. From the product page: Cut off the sewing buttons in the logic game Buttons and Scissors! To cut off the buttons, select two or more buttons of the same color. You can select buttons only on the same horizontal, vertical or diagonal line. Cut off all the buttons from the scrap of denim to complete the level. Try to complete each level in the shortest time possible to get a better score.

138 of 142 reviews are four stars and above.
