Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 6/27/2012: Cheese Crawl has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Cheese Crawl.

Cheese Crawl is only available in free, ad-supported mode Google Play, and is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Cheese Crawl is described as follows:
Adventure Just Got Cheesy!

You've been invited to a reception at the new facility of GeneCorp, ZLC (a Zero Liability Corporation). But when you get there, you find that the new facility looks more like a dungeon, and the reception doesn't seem very festive.

Cheese Crawl is a first-person adventure RPG in the style of a classic dungeon crawl...with a twist. Welcome to the world's first wine-and-cheese-themed dungeon crawl. Battle your way through six huge levels crawling with hostile genetically-enhanced dairy products. Gather useful and unique items, weapons, and armor. Find gold and other treasures. Trade equipment at the company vending machine. Solve challenges and puzzles to help you progress towards your one and only goal: getting out alive!

This is the perfect game if you enjoy solving puzzles and mazes, amassing treasure, leveling up your character with unusual equipment, combat with hors d'oeuvres, or simply defeating an evil corporation bent on cheese-related world domination.
Cheese Crawl is rated at 5.0 stars (but with only one rating) in Google Play and is rated at 2.6 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The download is huge in Google Play, and requires wi-fi. That restriction isn't listed on the app page in, but it is enforced. If you try to download via the Amazon Appstore app without wi-fi, you'll be blocked.

Considering the ratings, we'd skip this app.
