Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 4/14/2012: Reversi Paper Blobs has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Reversi Paper Blobs.

Reversi Paper Blobs is priced at $2.00 in Google Play, and it is normally priced at $2.00 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Reversi Paper Blobs is described as follows:
Classic Strategy, Blob Style

In Reversi Paper Blob, help the friendly green blobs vanquish the evil spiky blobs. Flank your opponent's blobs in order to convert them into friendly blobs. Capture heart squares to convert more of your opponent's blobs. Avoid the skull squares, as the occupying blobs will decay over time.

Matter of Life and Death

If you've played Othello or Reversi, you'll find the gameplay here familiar, but the new skeleton and heart squares--plus those quirky, funny, blobby character pieces--add both extra challenges and endearing elements to a deceptively simple game. Capture and hold a heart square through a countdown timer, and all of the surrounding pieces reverse to match your blob. Land on a skull, and your piece eventually fades away.

The game also offers two different modes. Learn the game through single-player mode against one of four different AIs, or challenge a friend in the two-player hot-seat mode.

Meanwhile, there are 23 reviews giving that 2.1 star rating in the Amazon Appstore. Poor game play, bugs, and permissions paranoia are among the issues listed in the Amazon Appstore.

Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
