Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today’s app is Safari! HD.
Safari! HD is priced at $1.39 in the Android Market. Meanwhile, it is normally priced at $1.29 in the Amazon Appstore. As we noted previously, prices sometimes differ between the two stores.
Safari! HD centralizes family activities, shopping lists, and chores. It is described as follows:
An array of cute animal faces peer from your home screen just waiting to be linked with their friends. Go on a matching safari, and swipe your way through mazes of wild little beasts.
It’s a Swiping Samba Safari
Quickly connect three or more faces by swiping your finger across a chain of matching animals. The longer the chain, the more points you earn. Connect only neighboring animals in rows, zigzags, or circles. Once you connect them, they disappear and new animals drop onto the board.
You’ll enjoy the colorful graphics, and sweet African samba music playing as you go on your matching safari.
Wild or Tame Gameplay
There’s a game mode for everyone. Choose to play any of the Safari! HD options: Survivor, Time Attack, and Endless. In Survivor mode, the clock is running, but you have the opportunity to add time–earn 2,000 points and your time bar increases 50%. In Time Attack mode, match as many animals as you can in 100 seconds. In Endless mode, relax, enjoy the samba, and play until your heart’s content: no ticking clock, or loud buzzers interrupt this cool safari.
Check local and global high scores and submit your best. Safari! HD supports OpenFeint so you can Safari with friends. Safari hat is optional.
This version of “Safari!” is optimized for devices with large screens (like HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy S,…). Try the FREE version “Safari! HD lite” first.
If you have an android device with a small screen (like SE Xperia X10 mini) or problems to touch a single animal check out the “Non-HD” Version of “Safari!”, simply called “Safari!”
Safari! HD has a 4.5-star rating in the Android Market, and a 4-star rating in the Amazon Appstore. Note that as mentioned above, there is a version called Safari! for smaller screens. That version is also free in the Amazon Appstore today.
Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term “App Store.” Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
