Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Little Things Forever.

Today's Free App of the Day is Little Things® Forever
Originally $2.99


This is an extremely unique hidden object game.  It is also challenging! One one-star review was added this morning because it didn't work on a Galaxy.  I give it five stars.

The main screen has a star made up of various items in a mosaic to form the star.  When you click play, the game zooms in on one of the shapes in the initial mosaic which then becomes a mosaic.  Your job is to find a certain number of objects from a list among the mosaic.  You tap on the object you've found.  Found objects remain on the screen with sparkles on them. The early levels start at four objects.  This is more difficult than it sounds.

You can zoom in on the mosaic either by pinching or by tapping on the zoom button.  There is a hint button which slowly zooms in on the area of the puzzle that contains the object.  If you find the object before the zoom finishes, you are not considered to have used the hint, it seems.  And the hint doesn't need to recharge.  Your time to complete the puzzle is noted but there is not a timer counting down.  Note that this seems to be a British puzzle; "aeroplane" was one of the objects.  As you complete levels, you earn puzzle pieces.   And yay, I finally completed a stage without hints!

Every now and then the puzzle is different.  Occasionally, one is timed...and one of the achievements is "find 10 object or more on a single speed stage." Sometimes you need to find multiples of the same object. When you finish one puzzle, you start right away on a new one. If you back out of a puzzle in progress, you restart on a new puzzle.

As you earn puzzle pieces, you will be given a puzzle to solve.  The puzzles start out as four pieces and slowly get more complex--nine, and sixteen.  In the four piece puzzle, you get four sections of the puzzle and you have to slide them and rotate to fit the pieces together in the right order and orientation.

There are four player slots that you can use, distinguished by game progress and the order in which they started the game.  You can delete players. There are nine achievements.  The first three are puzzles, there are also achievements for speed, for solving the final puzzle, for playing for eight hours, for collect 25 extra puzzle pieces, for finding a thousand little things, and for getting "excellent" on ten stages without hints. I don't see a way to replay an individual stage. It will only play in one landscape orientation, but will play in landscape mode.

11 of 12 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HDX 8.9" and 7".
