Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 4/7/2012: Bounce the Bunny HD has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Bounce the Bunny HD.

We were unable to find Bounce the Bunny HD in Google Play, and it is normally priced at $2.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Discount: Panda Campaign
Bounce the Bunny HD is described as follows:
The Right Bunny for the Job

Sometimes, there's a bunny... well, he's the right bunny for his time and place. Bounce the Bunny is just that bunny. All he ever wanted to do was bounce so high that he could collect the shiny stars in the sky that always seemed slightly out of reach.

One day, Bounce met a magic frog who shared his magical bubble-making techniques. Magical bouncing bubbles! Now Bounce was free to make his dream come true. But he can't do it without you!

Let's Bounce

Help Bounce the Bunny take off on a series of epic adventures across land, over the sea, and through the air. Enjoy hours of physics-based gameplay as Bounce flies through unique and colorful worlds, collecting stars based on your bubble designs.

Each of the game's 60 levels is easy to learn but challenging to master, with loads of achievements, unlockable boosts, and items to earn. Marvel at the 3D visuals, earn a spot on the leaderboard, and share your progress on Facebook.

The Stars Our Destination

Will you see Bounce through his victories and defeats, his glories and triumphs, as he pursues his destiny? Can you get every star on every level?

There's only one way to find out. Get bouncing!
As we said, we were unable to find Bounce the Bunny HD in Google Play and it is rated at 2.8 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

This is a somewhat strange app, as Bounce the Bunny is produced by BackFlip Studios in the App Store for iOS (it also has a reasonable 3.5 star rating). However, this Android app is by END Games Entertainment, but there is also a BackFlip Studios in both the Amazon Appstore and Google Play. We've seen developers use different names between Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, but not two names in the same store.

Based on that, we have only the Appstore ratings to go by, and those say crashes and bugs are frequent.

Those who are considering "buying" a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers. 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. has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
