Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 7/14/2012: Twinz - Ad-Free has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Twinz - Ad-Free.

Twinz - Ad-Free is priced at $0.99 in Google Play, and is normally priced at $0.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Twinz - Ad-Free is described as follows:
Concentration Style Match Game

Twinz is a memory game in which you uncover pairs of tiles. If the pictures behind the doors match, they remain open and play continues, but if they do not match, the doors close. Remembering the images behind the doors is the key to scoring and moving on to the next level.

An App to Change your Sudoku Experience

Unlike many traditional memory games, Twinz features timed play, five distinct levels, three difficulty settings, and allows you to share your scores with other players around the world.

  • Five different bright and colorful tile sets
  • Kid-friendly and kid-tested, but made for all ages
  • Online high score sharing with other players around the world
  • Auto-save and continue in case of interruption
  • Auto-adapt landscape and portrait modes
Twinz - Ad-Free is rated at 5.0 stars in Google Play, and at 3.8 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

That 5.0 star rating in Google Play comes with only one (singular) rating, though. The 3.8 star rating in the Amazon Appstore comes via 16 ratings. There is also a Twinz Free ad-supported version that comes with a 4.3-star rating after 12 reviews.

It seems a decent enough game; if you like this type of matching game, give it a "buy."

Twinz is also available in the iOS App Store for $0.99. It hasn't received enough ratings for any to be displayed, however.
