12 Kindle Games on Sale for $0.99; Plus Lots of New Active Content


SCRABBLE for Kindle

Amazon is running a 99 cent sale on a dozen Kindle Games. Lots of good ones too, including Scrabble, Slingo, EA Sudoku, Triple Town, and Panda Poet. The sale ends September 12th.

Aside from the sale, there seems to an influx of new Kindle Games and Active Content hitting the Kindle Store. Below is a list of nine new Sudoku games, interactive stories, and other active content that has been added so far this month.

Note that Kindle Games and Active Content work on the Kindle 3, Kindle 2, and Kindle DX, not any of the Kindle apps, and probably not the upcoming Kindle Tablet either.

The King of Shreds and Patches (An Interactive Novel for Kindle) by Antiquarian Productions

The King of Shreds and Patches

The King of Shreds and Patches is a novel-length work of interactive fiction in which your choices control how successfully you navigate the story.

As the main character, you will explore a historically accurate recreation of Elizabethan London, circa 1603, interact with some fascinating characters both historical and fictional, and thwart an occult conspiracy that threatens to bring down the entire city — or worse.

You receive a note from your old acquaintance John Croft. You expect nothing but an evening of good food and drink and tall tales. Instead, you quickly find yourself plunged into a conspiracy of black magic that involves some of the most powerful and important men in London – and possibly even someone else, someone much closer to your own heart.

Interact with XVII-century London by typing simple commands like “Go to London Bridge”, “Examine the note” or “Ask the bartender about the play”. An elaborate hint system reveals as many clues as you desire to solve the story without spoiling the fun.

Lovers of mysteries, horror, adventure games puzzles alike will play the role of the protagonist, experiencing the story from the inside.

Japanese Puzzles Volume 1 (A Puzzle Game for Kindle) by puzzle.tv

Japanese Puzzles

Japanese Puzzles is a collection of 5 different kinds of logic puzzles.

This collection contains 100 logic puzzles: 20 each of Kakuro, Number Islands, Hitori, Picture Cross and Sudoku.

In Kakuro, you insert numbers into a grid of squares so that the sum of the numbers matches the clue for that section without repeating digits. Number Islands is played on a grid of uncolored squares. Each square must be painted black or white according to a set of rules and numeric clues given. Hitori starts with a grid of squares containing numbers. The goal is to black-out some squares so that the remaining cells do not contain duplicate numbers in a given row or column. Picture Cross has an empty grid that must be colored according to numeric clues given for each row and column. In Sudoku, your 9×9 grid of squares starts with a few numbers, and your goal is to fill in the remaining squares such that no numbers are repeated in the same row, column, or box of 3×3 squares.

Instructions and step by step tutorials are included, and hints are available to help you keep going if you get stuck.

If you love number puzzles and are looking for something new, you’ll love Japanese Puzzles on Kindle!
