Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 7/6/2012: Meowtch! has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Meowch!.

Meowch! is priced at $1.99 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.

Meowch! is described as follows:
You love cats--and cats love mischief and adventure. This is how it always has been and always will be. It's time to accept that fact and enjoy Meowch!, a game that offers lots of fun and fur-raising thrills.

Tempting Feline Fate

In Meowch!, you'll take control of three runaway cats and guide them to freedom. Can you maneuver down the roof of a brownstone while evading the clutches of the cat lady? Or from the the heights of a skyscraper without a gust of wind blowing you off course?

Find out as you embark on a series of dangerous, cat-unfriendly adventures, dodging deadly electrical wires and even deadlier enemies. Stay on your toes, keep your eyes open and your claws out, and you just might win.

But don't forget: if you make it all the way down a building, be sure to find a hiding place on the ground ASAP. Otherwise, Animal Control will be happy to snatch you up--and that would be the ultimate Meowch!

Navigate 36 unique levels through three stages, each with new challenges and a distinct visual style. It's up to you to get your feline friends to safety. Good luck!
Meowch! is rated at 5.0 stars in Google Play and at 3.3 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

The app is downgraded in the Amazon Appstore due to force closes, poor gameplay, and accusations that the devs are writing the 5-star reviews. It is true that it's strange that even in Google Play, the paid version (there is also a free version) of the app has a 5.0 rating, but with 32 ratings. That's hard to believe, though in the realm of possibility.

The free version, though, has a 4.3 star rating with 50 ratings.  Given that, this might be worth a look.
