Amazon Appstore's free app, 7/19/2012: Dibbles: For The Greater Good has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Dibbles: For The Greater Good.

Dibbles: For The Greater Good is not available in 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.

Knots 3D is described as follows:
Guide your little heroes through this perilous magical land. They will gladly sacrifice themselves to get their king to safety.

The Dibbles will carry out any order you give them, even if it means sacrificing their lives (which is usually the case). Get the king to the exit and save as many Dibbles as you can in this Lemmings inspired, comical puzzle game.

Place command stones by tapping the screen. The first Dibble to encounter the stone will carry out the order.
Dibbles: For The Greater Good is rated at 3.1 stars in the Amazon Appstore.
