Great news for you Mahjong Butterfly lovers out there (some of us are addicted to the game). If you have read my past reviews, this is my absolute favorite game on the Kindle (see my Mahjong Butterfly review). Several of us were frustrated because we could only earn a portion of the 50 butterflies. I felt like I was waiting in vain for an update to ever come out – but in the middle of June they released v1.1 which now allows all 50 butterflies to be collected. If you haven’t updated – get it now and get back to collecting. If you haven’t purchased this app, it is well worth the $2.99. Still only available on the Kindle 2, Kindle Keyboard and Kindle DX – I feel sorry for the rest of you.
To finish off June, there were also two new interactive fiction releases.
The Shadow in the Cathedral by Textfyre is the first in the Klockwerk Series. I have to admit I snorted when I saw the $9.99 price tag attached to it. Really? $9.99. Must be a potential Pulitzer Prize winner. If anyone out there puts forth that kind of money for this app, please let me know how it is because I’m not going to even try it. Available for all Kindle devices with active content except the Kindle (4).
infix: Insight by black belt games is a Science Fiction interactive fiction app. At least it is reasonably priced at $1.99. Available for all Kindles with Active Content.
I’m off to collect some butterflies while we wait to see what July brings.
