It looks like the Kindle store is getting up to speed and starting to put out some better apps and games now. Games will be reviewed as I find time to play them. Here are some of the new items to check out:
Note: Unless otherwise mentioned – these are available for Kindle, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle DX, and Kindle 2nd Generation.
Castle Dungeon – An Adventure Role-Playing Game for the Kindle. This looks pretty interesting and already has one five star review. Available for $2.99.
Gem Falls – a Pattern Matching Game. (Kindle Touch users can do a happy dance and purchase this game). Available for $1.99. This is Nickel Buddy’s first game on the Kindle (they have exercise apps out) – so it will be interesting to see how they do.
Cut the Shapes – a puzzle game where you need to cut the shapes into identical parts – looks pretty interesting. I think the Grabarchuk team likes to deal with shapes. At $2.99 it is supposed to be good for visual skills. Maybe it will make me younger by playing it.
Lingo – a puzzle game based upon the TV show. I guess this makes me really behind the times because I have not watched tv in a year or so and have never heard of this. Word games, brain games and a cure for cancer all in one easy application. On sale for $2.99.
Poker Squares – a combination of poker and solitaire in one small bundle. At $1.99 – you can lose your money without anyone else being around.
Spanish Anywhere - A Spanish Language Learning Tool for the Kindle. It looks to be a decent reference for the language – but at $5.99 it will be interesting to see how many people are willing to pay that much. It does have some good pronunciation guides in the images I have seen – but users will still complain because they can’t actually hear pronunciation in the app.
