Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Rocket Nova - Ad-Free

Today's Free App of the Day is Rocket Nova - Ad-Free
Originally $0.99


This is an arcade/physics game where you guide your rocket ship along a path to collect objects and make it to a portal. You guide the ship by holding and dragging your finger ahead of the ship. I like the fact that inertia is factored in--the ship will try to follow the last path drawn and there's a slight lag in changing direction. Other reviews complain about the lack of responsiveness--but I thought it was part of the "physics" aspect of the game. You can earn one of three achievement levels for a stage--the size of the star you earn changes based on the number of objects you scoop up and the time you take to do it. The graphics are kind of old style comic book, which I like. EDIT: I'd give this game two stars--I think it's much better than the average stars, but the fact that it's not saving the progress in my game when I completely exit the game is a major flaw. It plays in only one landscape mode, and is playable in airplane mode. There's no exit button, but it exits cleanly using the device's back button. That's the good news. The bad news is that you lose all of your levels and have to start over. :( I like this game--I'd get it and hope they fix this.

4 of 8 reviews are four stars and above.

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