5.0 out of 5 stars A demanding but enjoyable runner October 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Just a few days after Joining Hands 2, we get another excellent Free App of the Day. Granny Smith is a lot of fun, and it's one of the more visually impressive games I've seen in the Amazon Appstore. Gameplay is simple. You control Granny, who loves her apples so much that she's strapped on roller skates to chase a young thief who's trying to steal them. But to get ahead of him and stay ahead, you'll have to time her moves just right. A button on the right side of the screen makes Granny jump. But it's not so much knowing when to jump that's an issue as knowing when to release the jump button so that Granny, who spins through the air as she moves forward, will land on her feet. If she doesn't, she'll slow way down, losing coins and allowing the thief to get ahead of her and take one of the three apples located somewhere in each level. (You don't have to get the apples or beat the thief to the finish line to clear the level; just getting to the end counts as a win.) At least in the early levels, timing a landing is the trickiest part of Granny Smith.

But it gets easier with practice. Granny's other move, using a button on the left side of the screen to grab hold of wires with her cane and slide along them, is easier to manage. And the levels are short enough that even if it takes a couple replays, you won't feel like you're stuck in a rut. Besides, they're fun. There's a weird pleasure in watching Granny take flying leaps and burst through buildings like a superhero, never slowing down (if you've done it right) in her search for apples. As others have noted, after you finish a level you'll get an instant replay in old-fashioned sepia tone, and the game's graphics are nice enough that each replay feels like a short CGI cartoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's actually very good October 4, 2013
By ddubb
Verified Purchase
Cute, challenging, and nice little touches (like upon completion replaying your performance on the level in a sepia-toned movie). It's a nicely done game that feels very "finished". I'm happy to have it as the free app of the day, but would not feel I'd paid too much had it been a regular purchase.
I'm on the EVO 4GLTE. The graphics & interface are great & gameplay doesn't suffer being on a small screen (tho the graphics would probably be nicer on a tablet.)
My only complaint so far is that it plays loud energetic music when opened after download. You can turn it off, and I assume it will open silent next time, but if you download with someone sleeping nearby, at work, etc, I'd recommend waiting to open it.

Quick download to my kindle fire hd. Controls are very smooth and easy to use. Excellent graphics and music. The object of the game is to get the apples and advance to the next level. Great for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as apple pie! October 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
I don't normally like games with "buttons", but this one is both fun and challenging! I love the look on Granny's face when she falls, but like a senior citizen with lots of spunk, soon she's up and running again.

The levels I've played so far are not so difficult that I become frustrated, but are definitely able to be overcome with a little practice.

This game works on my Kindle Fire with no problems at all. And today, the game is a bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oldie Goldie Goody! October 4, 2013

This Granny Smith game was made available on Google Play by the developers years ago. I had purchased this earlier from Google app store on my Samsung Tablet and loved it. Now with Amazon App store offering this as Free App of the day so that I can run this on my Kindle Tablets makes me very happy.

Granny Smith may be a old lady looking character, But trust me she has lots of moves :-) She has tons of destructive capabilities and she can easily defy physics! She loves her Apple and it is your task to run after and collect those apples for her.

Over all a fantastic game. Thanks for making everyone in the family happy. Five Stars!

I have over three hundred game downloads trying to find ones that really pique my interest, & this one so far has captured my attention.

I have a Galaxy S 3 at the moment, & the graphics are absolutely sublime. The gameplay is right on and I'm not going to be putting my phone down tonight any time soon.

Thanks for a great giveaway of the day!
