Product Description

Meet Stinky, a young little imp who’s always getting into trouble in DOWN THE HATCH! Constantly hungry, Stinky goes to desperate lengths to fill the rumbling in his tumbling.

His latest adventure has brought him to a tremendous treasure trove of treats: the Great Refrigerator in the Sky. It contains an endless supply of food, but its stores are so heavenly an imp is forbidden to eat them! Things like cake and pie and his favorite snack of all… donuts. Donuts! The very shape of a halo and the heavenliest of pastries! Naturally, the temptation is too great to resist. In his excitement, Stinky topples the Great Refrigerator and all the goodies go falling out...

Join Stinky as he falls from grace in a sinful shower of decadent desserts. Tilt your device around to help him cram in as much as he can before he hits bottom!

Yes it seems repetitive, and is in a way, but when you get past the first few levels it gets more and more difficult to avoid the obstacles, steadily increasing the challenge.

Your mission is to eat as many donuts, cakes and pies as you can while avoiding the various obstacles coming your way. I don't know how many levels there are but if you look at the achievements there seems to be quite a few. I've only gotten as far as the fourth level so far. You get 10 lives, and lose one each time you are hit. You can gain them back by eating the velentine candy box. Once your lives are used up game is over and you start again, trying to beat your score and get to higher levels. It does keep your score and achievements.

There seems to be some confusion as this is offered by End Games and the fake reviews are also from people giving fake reviews for other End Games apps.
Down The Hatch is actually created by Nom Productions so I don't think they are responsible for the fake reviews. As for IAP I didn't see any. Clicking the news link gives you a message which reads-

"Welcome Amazon Users! Thanks for downloading and playing down the Hatch." There are right and left arrows but they don't do anything.

Clicking the Nom Productions icon takes you to their blog. It looks like they only have two games, this one and Nomsters which I don't think is available yet. They are working on a third. I saw no place to purchase any of these games on the blog, however there is a post saying Down The Hatch was featured on GooglePlay and clicking that takes you to GooglePlay home page, not this game. There is also a link bringing you to the Amazon FAOTD.

I think children and adults can enjoy this game. Although young children probably won't get past the first level.

Stinky, an imp, tips over the refrigerator and dives for the falling goodies falling through the sky. The items are many of his favorite foods such as pies, cakes and his favorite donuts. It sounds easy except for the different flying enemies that dive at you, pop off of the walls, falling stalactites and spewing sewage. Gameplay was simple and smooth and the tilt functionality was done very well on the Kindle Fire.

The game play is good but almost two easy, I got four trophies in the first game. Overall the game is ok but so far very repetitive and you can tire of it quickly. It might be a good game for your children except you have to turn off the WIFI to avoid letting them go to the internet with the links in the game.

What I don't like is that once you get beat you simply have to start all over again at the beginning which is what makes the game even more repetitive and soon boring. I also don't care for the new trend to put a message link in the games so the developer can send you information directly into the game home screen.

The game is a three star rating. It might have been a little higher as I don't see the need for the full internet access, links and news link. There are also multiple fake reviews first thing in the morning and some even rate multiple games from the developer. I would rather see a new game with no reviews than the fake ones which is a turn off for many people.

Down The Hatch is yet another tilt game, the object of which is to navigate Stinky the imp down random backgrounds while eating everything in his path and avoiding enemies. There are of course power ups, health restores, and objects in the game to spice it up a bit - something that almost all title games have.

I can't do my standard review on this game because I would put everything in the "bad" category. I found the music and sound absolutely terrible (the constant fart sounds don't help either), but my three year old daughter thought it was "funny" and "fun". It kept her busy while she ate and in the car ride to daycare. That is quite an accomplishment - only done before by Angry Birds and a few other games.

The graphics are nice enough, and so are the animations, but there is no real oomph to the game. Everything is overly cute and even the enemies have oversized eyes. The game caters to a much younger demographic.

I also found the endless falling on each level to be incredibly boring, with very little changes, and too much repetition. Once again my daughter enjoyed it, so my point is moot.

I don't like that this game requires two network permissions in a game the targets children.
"Open network sockets" gives this app free range Internet access, and the aptly named "Access information about networks" allows it to do exactly that.
I am afraid that at any point they will add some more links to the game (there are already two - the "News", and link to the developers web page) that will allow your child to purchase other games from the developer, or worse - IAP.
My daughter's tablet is rooted, and I installed quite a bit of protective software on there. I also password protected her WiFi, but the above is still a concern.

Cute graphics and it played smoothly on my Evo. My kid enjoyed it immensely. I myself wish there was another way to control other than the tilt feature. Read more

"Catch the falling items" game, been done a million times. Looked pretty good on Toshiba thrive, it's probably best to play these on a tablet.
