Today's Free App of the Day is Rescue Roby
Originally $0.99

This was the free app of the day on June 21, 2013. I guess Amazon, who has had a couple of stinkers in the past, went for something tried and true.

Here's my review from last year:

This is a charming physics-style game; you save Roby the Robot from being recycled by destroying crates and letting him drop into a shipping crate. The game starts with a short, cute video that explains the plot. I really liked the game. The one-star reviews talk about difficulty downloading, which I didn't find. The game downloaded quickly and opened perfectly. I'll be playing this one a lot.... Four stars from me.

Played it again this morning--still four stars! A lot of the negative reviews have to do with issues with particular devices. I installed and played fine on my Kindle Fire HDX7.

3.7 of 123 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Sago Mini Monsters.

This app is also free right now for a limited time. Originally $2.99

It's for younger kids. From the reviews, it apparently does require an internet connection. Not compatible with the original Fire, sorry!

From the product page:

Sago Mini Monsters lets kids create their own creatures and BRING THEM TO LIFE! Decorate your monster, feed it, and be sure to brush its teeth! When you're finished, snap a photo to save and share. Make as many as you like, EACH MONSTER IS UNIQUE!

WHO WE ARE: Sago Mini Monsters fosters empathy, pride, and ownership. Part of the AWARD-WINNING suite of Sago Mini apps, this app is sure to bring smiles to your little one. 4.4 of 17 reviews are four stars and above.

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

Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
