Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: V for Vampire

Today's Free App of the Day is V for Vampire
Originally $1.99

This is a physics based game with a Halloween (vampire) theme.  The graphics are quite good and attractive; the vampire and skeletons are cartoonish and not likely to be scary to the younger players.  You have to break various obstacles to allow the little vampire to get to his victim.  You move the vampire once the obstacles are cleared by tapping on the screen. You have to avoid the "holy light." If the little vamp hits the holy light he shrieks but doesn't die. He will die eventually if you keep hitting the lights, but it seems to take a long time.

 There is a store, but that is only for buying ammo with the coins you earn by clearing levels. There's a reference to solutions in the store, but it's not clear that those can be purchased.

 There are achievements you can earn (see them by tapping on "more" on the initial screen) and you choose individual screens by swiping right to left on the initial screen (once you've played some levels. You get one to three skulls for how efficient you are in clearing a level. Future levels are locked until you clear a prior level. One unique feature--you can check for the "three skull" solution from the level menu if you are having trouble. This is definitely one of the best holiday themed apps I've seen, and I suspect I'll be playing it a lot in the coming days.

5 of 8 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!
