Today's Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Doodle Kingdom

Today's Free App of the Day is Doodle Kingdom
Originally $0.99


This is another in the series of "Doodle" games where you combine elements to create other items. I enjoy the Doodle games (Doodle God, Doodle Devil, Doodle Farm, etc) enough that I picked this one up for 99 coins some time back. In all the Doodle Games you are recreating the world (or a version of it) from scratch. In this case, it's a magical kingdom.

What makes these games enjoyable for me are the graphics, the fun of seeing what combinations of elements create, and reading the quotes that accompany each new element created. Sometimes the combinations are logical, sometimes unexpected. (peasant + bird = pegasus). The game could benefit from a help screen. It does have a basic tutorial and some popups when you first enter one of the three modes: Genesis, Quests or My Hero.

Genesis Mode is where you create the world by combining elements. Quests Mode has quests which become available after you have certain elements created. The Return of the King requires "Castle" to be discovered or created. Necronomicon is required for "The Necormancer's Uprising" quest and "Dragon" is required for "How to Train Your Dragon." My Hero is a kind of endless runner game with your hero where you complete mini quests to earn stars and coins. There are achievements that can be unlocked.

The game plays in portrait mode but will rotate 180 degrees. Per a review, it can be played offline. As I said, I enjoy these games for their humor, graphics and creativity and give them four stars. If you are more into action type games, you may not like this game as much.

15 of 27 reviews are four stars and above.

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