Kindle Fire Free App of the Day (August 22, 2014): Hidden Object Manor Fable - Full Version

Today's Free App of the Day is Hidden Object Manor Fable - Full Version
Originally $1.99


This is a hidden object game. Not the best one, far from the worst. The objects you have to find are sort of pasted onto the background instead of being integrated into the scenery, which one reviewer objected to.  There's a storyline that the games are part of. There's also an arcade mode.

On the main menu, extras should more properly be called "Options." Several game styles are shown--you can set the game mode and difficulty for those modes.

There is a help screen accessed by the question mark on the main level that explains the different levels.

You can search for hidden objects by picture or word. On some levels you are given the silhouette of the item instead of a picture. It can be kind of difficult on a 7", the items are small and you do have a time limit, but the hint recharges and you can replay levels. You can zoom in and out by pinching. 

There's some variety in the types of games, which I like, to include a Match-3 level. There is a bonus mode where only one item is shown at a time.

The game can be paused. It appears to be playable in Airplane mode, but the second time I tried it, after exiting the game completely and re-starting, it required internet access. Plays in landscape mode in one orientation only. I'd give it 3.5 stars...

6 of 14 reviews are four stars and above.

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