Amazon Appstore's free app of the day for March 5, 2013 is Wonderlines: Match-3 Puzzle Game

Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Wonderlines: Match-3 Puzzle Game.

Wonderlines: Match-3 Puzzle Game is priced at $2.99 in Google Play; it is normally priced at $2.99 at the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.

Wonderlines: Match-3 Puzzle Game is described as follows:
Once, during an expedition to South America, a famous archaeologist found some strange hieroglyphic writings. They described rules of the sacred game, which was the main challenge for anyone who desired to become the High Priest. When he returned to Europe he gave the writings to best video game developers, and now you too can play this ancient and mysterious game!

The main principle of the game practically stayed the same, only instead of just matching several stones of a single color in a line, you need to match balls to destroy them over a selection brown tiles.

There are three game modes in this magic kingdom: action, puzzle and Zen. The game also has a lot of different power-up like crystals, bombs, dynamites, and wildcards that will help on difficult levels.

- Fun and relaxing gameplay
- Superb backgrounds
- Three game modes: puzzle, action, and Zen
- 70 levels and 6 power-ups
- Gentle calming music

This game can be challenging or relaxing means for your mind according to game which mode which you will select! Who knows, maybe someday you’ll become a High Priest.

Wonderlines: Match-3 Puzzle Game has a 4.4-star rating in Google Play; it has a 4.1-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.

Buy this while it's free.

There is a version of the app in the iOS App Store. There it is priced at $1.99 and has a 4.5-star rating for both current and overall ratings.

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).

Amazon.com 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. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.

Apple has already lost a portion of that lawsuit, which said Amazon.com had participated in "false advertising."
