Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Captain Fishblock

Today's Free App of the Day is Captain Fishblock
Originally $0.99


This is a cute physics based game. You drop blocks of ice containing fish onboard your boat. Each level you have a primary goal--total number of blocks, weight of blocks or height of blocks for example, a time goal and an additional goal of not knocking the dog off the boat (not sure if this is consistent on all levels).

You can earn up to three stars on each level. Only the primary goal is mandatory to clear the level with at least one star. If a block falls off the boat, your level ends. If you don't make the time goal or other goal, you clear the level but lose stars.

My only issue is that there is no way to pause the game or start a replay within the level. If you want to start over, you need to drop a block into the water to get the replay option. If you clear the level but want to play it again, you have to go to "select level" and reselect the level. It's playable only in one portrait orientation, but is playable in airplane mode.

I had no issues playing the game on my Fire HDX, though at least one reviewer did.

3 of 6 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
