Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 4/1/2012: Micronytes has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Micronytes.

Micronytes is priced at $1.50 in Google Play, and is normally priced at $1.50 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Micronytes is described as follows:
Micronytes, Macro Fun

A patient with a strange disease needs your help. You control the microscopic Micronytes on their hunt for the evil green germies. Will you manage to cure the patient? Find out in this entertaining animated game for Android.

Gameplay is simple yet addicting. There are 80 challenging levels for you to advance through, subdivided into four different worlds. Along the way, see if you can collect all the in-game trophies and OpenFeint achievements. It won't be easy.

Shake, Rattle, and Jump

Micronytes features a variety of control systems. Choose from "tactile and shake," D-Pad controls, onscreen joystick, and more. Controlling your character is not hard, as there are only three movements: left, right, and jump. Jump multiple times to soar higher on the more difficult maneuvers.

How Does It End?

The game offers several different outcomes, depending on how many trophies you can collect while you play. This makes Micronytes a highly replayable app.

All that Jazz

Music is one of the main characters in Micronytes. The soundtrack is a journey through different styles, including jazz, orchestral, and emotion-filled grand piano songs. You'll find yourself humming along to the sounds of Micronytes long after your game is over.

What They're Saying

"Micronytes is a new platform game for Android that features HD graphics, intuitive controls and a catchy, quirky soundtrack. The Fantastic Voyage-inspired plot has a tiny protagonist trying to cure a sick patient from within their body." -

"[Micronytes has] the same addictive qualities of Angry Birds with a much more slamming, big band jazz soundtrack. The gameplay is smooth and entertaining and really makes for a unique (and awesome) experience." -
Micronytes has a rating of 3.9 stars in Google Play and 3.3 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

It's not too big a difference between the two markets and averages out to a mid-3 range app. There are 61 ratings in Google Play and 31 in the Amazon Appstore.
