Everlands – Free Amazon Android App for 8/15/11

Name: Everlands

Story-Based, Hexagon-Shaped, Strategy Puzzle
Dark and sinister forces have invaded the colorful world of Everlands. Everlands animals must unite to combine the best of their abilities, together standing against the great threat that casts a shadow over their beloved homeland.

Each animal has unique strengths, weaknesses, and features. Defeat the foes of Everlands through strategy and tactics by combining dozens of animal abilities, leading them through more than 20 carefully prepared levels. Reveal the truth behind the source of mysterious evil in a unique turn-based game.

Game Objective
The goal of the game is to win battles by capturing as many enemy hexagons as possible with the strengths and abilities of your animal hexagons. If you manage to gain more than half of the combatants in that round, you win the battle.

Animal Hex health and attack power levels
Strategic Gameplay
Click on each animal hexagon to see useful information about that animal’s abilities. Based on that description, you place that hexagon on the board to prepare for battle against the enemy. Keep in mind the number and direction of the attack sides of each hex. The sides of your animal’s hex that have no attack direction are undefended. Those are the sides the enemy will try to attack. Ideal placement allows your animal to point its attack in the enemy’s direction, while leaving its undefended sides away from the battle’s front.

Flick Kick Football – Free App of the Day from Amazon

Name: Flick Kick Football

Hear the roar of the crowd as you curve a beautiful strike past the wall of defenders….Gooooooal! Flick Kick Football delivers the thrill of taking free kicks on the goal: make your shot from different angles and distances, and watch out for shifting defenders and the goalie. Choose from Arcade, Time Attack, Practice, or Bullseye Mode, then use the intuitive flick controls to begin playing right away. Easy to pick up but hard to master, this classic time-killer is sure to appeal to casual gamers and die-hard soccer fans alike.

Curve your shots past the wall of defenders.
In Flick Kick Football, players assume the role of a striker taking shots on the goal. Pick one of four different game modes: Practice, Bullseye, Arcade, or Time Attack, and try out Flick Kick Football’s intuitive control system to begin making kicks like a pro.

To make a kick, simply line your finger up with the ball and flick the touchscreen in the direction of the goal. Not every kick is straightforward though: experiment with curving left or right in your followthrough, or give a longer swipe to kick the ball further. Find the technique that works for you, then adjust each kick to account for gaps in the opposition’s defense.

Challenging Conditions
Learn to curve your shots past defenders and the goalie: to add to the difficulty, some players will shift their positions constantly to throw off your aim. Try to target the corners of the net–referred to as the “skill zones” in the game–to increase your chance of scoring and earn additional bonuses.

Online Scores and Achievements
Flick Kick Football features online leaderboards and achievements with OpenFeint support. Rack up the points and then post your newest scores to Flick Kick’s global leaderboards. Think you’re good? Show off your skills online as you compete against others for the top spot!

Multiple Game Modes:
Test your aim with a series of bullseye targets lined up inside the goal. You will need to concentrate to make every shot count as you try to rack up the points before time runs out. Aim for the center of each target to score additional points and get awarded bonus time.

Arcade Mode
Fight to stay calm under pressure in this sudden death-styled goal shootout: one missed goal and it’s game over! Your only chance for survival is to try to aim for the “skill zone” edges of the goal: gain up to four extra lives this way.

Time Attack
It’s a race against the clock in this quickfire flick kicking challenge. How many goals can you score in only two minutes? As each successful goal adds on bonus time, you’ll have to keep cool and maintain steady aim to rack up a new highscore.

Go head to head against friends through Flick Kick Football’s pass-and-play multiplayer mode. Take turns passing the Android device between players after each shot: the first player to miss the goal three times loses.

A true test for the Flick Kick Football pros: how many times can you shoot the ball into the Skill Zones in a minute?
