Today's Free App of the Day is Vam Jump
It looks like Amazon is on its Halloween-themed game kick, even if the games are lame.
This is one of those games where the hero jumps from platform to platform.
However, it is not well reviewed at all for graphics or gameplay and many reviews call it a rip off of Doodle Jump. One review does say it's fun enough if you want a Halloween-themed version.
This app is actually damned by faint praise.
From the only five star review:
Cute little jumping vampire game for Halloween. There really nothing special about it though, I like Doodle Jump better. The graphics are ok and there isn't any glitches as far as I've experienced. Good FAotD but not worth paying for.
So, we also have Doodle Jump as the bonus app today.
2 of 9 reviews are four stars and above.
So we have a bonus pick: Doodle Jump Free.
I picked up this game last year and liked it quite a bit. (It may have been a bonus app before.) It has charmingly simple graphics. You can buy the ad-free version for $0.99 or 99 coins.
From the product page:
How high can you jump? Journey up a sheet of graph paper, perpetually jumping from one platform to the next, picking up jet packs, avoiding black holes, and blasting baddies with nose balls along the way. Laugh with delight as you blow past other players' actual score markers scribbled in the margins. And be warned: this game is insanely addictive!
