Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Swingworm

Today's Free App of the Day is Swingworm
Originally $2.99

This is a physics game with a caterpillar-like creature. You swing the caterpillar from item to item collecting berries and eggs in the early levels with a goal to earn the right ot climb a very tall tree. Different from many physics-based games, you can multiple swipe the caterpillar to help him move to the next platform. You also can backtrack if you miss; you have, as far as I can tell, all the time you want; the faster you go, the more stars you earn, but you can still complete the level. A timer in the corner tells you as you approach the time that causes you to lose a star. You can pause the game and replay specific levels if desired. There are episodes; in the first episode all the levels involve collecting berries to get the bug that controls the tree to allow your swingworm to climb it. There are six episodes and 95 levels total. I found the icon kind of terrifying, but the game graphics are quite pleasant and cute. The music is fun. The game is simple but getting all the stars is challenging. There is a knack to swinging the caterpillar to get it to stretch enough to reach at times. This plus the ability to earn stars gives it a replay value.

6 of 7 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G.
