Kindle Fire Free App of the Day (August 18, 2014): Jump Birdy Jump

Today's Free App of the Day is Jump Birdy Jump
Originally $1.99


This is a cute physics game that is better than the review average indicates. Your little birdy is sitting on a sling. You pull the sling to make the birdy hop from sling to sling with a goal of collecting all the stars on the way as you make your way to the other (apparently a girl) birdie. You receive a time score but apparently whether you get one, two or three stars for a level is based on the number of stars you collect. My main negative is the inability to see the screen as a whole, as you can in, say Angry Birds. It would be nice to be able to zoom out and see where the stars are for planning. I would give it four stars for gameplay. Apparently the music is somewhat annoying (I rarely have the sound turned up on my devices), and when you quit the game, and re-enter, you get a "More Games" screen that is easily bypassed. I didn't detract a star for that, like some reviewers did. The music can be turned off in the options menu. Playable in airplane mode. Plays in portrait orientation but will rotate 180 degrees. Three one-star reviews--one by you-know-who, two from 2013.

5 of 12 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HDXs.

Have fun!
