Amazon Appstore free app of the day for Nov. 5, 2012: League of Evil has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is League of Evil.

League of Evil is $0.99 in Google Play. It 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.

League of Evil is described as follows:
The world needs your help! Evil scientists worldwide have joined forces forming a "League of Evil"; the only super agent who can stop them is YOU!

As a specially trained agent you can double jump, flipping your way over obstacles. You are also trained in wall jumping gaps to reach new heights. So get ready to show your sick acrobatic moves across 160 challenging levels! Fight your way through your mission and find the mad scientist to deliver a well earned pixel punch in the face!

The world is counting on you. Now go save everyone!


- Over 160 levels of super agent action!
- Sick acrobatics: Jump, flip, wall jump, wall hug, double jump
- Multiple world locations
- Decapitations
- Pixel art and chiptune retro style game!
League of Evil is rated at 4.7 stars in Google Play, and has 3.9 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

With these ratings, we'd say "buy" this app while it is free.

There is a version of the app in the iOS App Store.  It is $1.99 and is rated at 4 stars for the current version, and 4.5 stars overall.

There is also a League of Evil 2 app in the iOS App Store, priced at $1.99 and rated at 4.5 stars both overall and for the current version.

We continue to be disappointed with the FAOTD program. It began promisingly enough, with Angry Birds Rio, but we've gotten tired of the endless games or niche apps, and especially apps which have no uptake in Google Play, and seem to be FAOTD as a desperation move by the developer.

We'd like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as CalenGoo instead of niche apps or endless games (we just assume every day that it's going to be a game; it's gotten that bad). opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term "App Store." Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
