Kindle fire telling me to re-download an app, but app store won't load?

I downloaded a free game called Enigmatis earlier today and after playing it for about an hour, got a message/pop up box informing me that I had to purchase the full version for $1.99 to go any further. I did purchase the full version and continued playing. I had to set it down to go do some things, and when I came back, the kindle was frozen and would not turn back on. After holding the power button down it finally revolted, but when I tried to reopen the game it said I needed to re-download the app, that there was a problem of some sort. So I went to open the app store and there's nothing -it will not load. My Internet/wi-fi works. I can't understand what happened. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've only had this kindle tor a few days and I really hope I haven't screwdriver it up already... Thanks.

Caitlin - Go into the device settings on your Fire and check the date and time. If they are off, correct them. That can prevent apps and the app store from working correctly.

Does anyone know if the purchased game Enigmatis Ghosts of Maple Creek can be downloaded onto your PC? I find it hard to see the hidden objects on my Fire.

Maureen big fish games usually has those for PC or that's where I get them if I don't want to buy them on the kindle. Bought this one a while ago myself as I am addicted to these hidden object games. I bought the cheaper one as I am not sure what all is in the collectors edition that is more expensive. Mary

Thanks! That made them work, such a stupid thing that would make the apps quit though. I was about ready to throw it across the room!

Yes my kindle does the same thing. It will tell me to redownload everything I go onto. The only thing it lets me play is dumb mindcraft. So bored of it! But this is not the first time it has done this. It did it before and I put it away for a year. After that I turned it on and it was fine. But it's not so easy this time.
