Product Description
Safari! HD
Choose from three game modes
Safari! HD
The longer the chain, the more points you earn

An array of cute animal faces peer from your home screen just waiting to be linked with their friends. Go on a matching safari, and swipe your way through mazes of wild little beasts.

It's a Swiping Samba Safari

Quickly connect three or more faces by swiping your finger across a chain of matching animals. The longer the chain, the more points you earn. Connect only neighboring animals in rows, zigzags, or circles. Once you connect them, they disappear and new animals drop onto the board.

You'll enjoy the colorful graphics, and sweet African samba music playing as you go on your matching safari.

Wild or Tame Gameplay

There's a game mode for everyone. Choose to play any of the Safari! HD options: Survivor, Time Attack, and Endless. In Survivor mode, the clock is running, but you have the opportunity to add time--earn 2,000 points and your time bar increases 50%. In Time Attack mode, match as many animals as you can in 100 seconds. In Endless mode, relax, enjoy the samba, and play until your heart's content: no ticking clock, or loud buzzers interrupt this cool safari.

Check local and global high scores and submit your best. Safari! HD supports OpenFeint so you can Safari with friends. Safari hat is optional.

This version of Safari! HD was optimzed for devices with a large screen. If you do not have a device with a large screen, please consider installing the standard version (Safari!) which is specifically designed for small screens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly addictive and fun July 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
The app description above does a good job of describing the game in its entirety: connect a chain of 3 or more matching animal faces by swiping your finger, there are 3 modes of play, and OpenFeint allows you to submit your high scores to compare globally with other players.

The game is challenging, colorful and fairly addictive for young kids (starting at age 5?) to adults; you could easily end up playing this an hour or more past your bedtime. Game play is smooth, no lagging, and completely stable in my experience. Sounds are top notch, including the soothing background African jungle noises. The game responded accurately to the swiping of my big thumb, even though I'm not wild about this type of touchscreen game, in which your finger covers key elements, making it hard to see what you're doing.

If you think larger animal tiles would be easier to select or view, try the non-HD Safari! version which is also free today (click this link: Safari!). It's identical except there are 6 X 6 tiles versus a 7 X 7 grid.

Every time you create a chain, the chain disappears, the animals above drop down to fill in the vacant spots, and new random animals fill in the vacated spots at the top. This is where strategy comes in - maneuver animals by taking away chains below, and thereby creating new longer chains. This is more easily practiced in Endless mode as opposed to the frenzied time pressure of the other modes.

The modes of play cater to two types of people: "Endless" mode for those who don't like time constraints, e.g. who like regular chess, and "Survivor" and "Time Attack" modes for those who like the thrill of time limits, e.g. who like speed chess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Addictive July 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
Not much to say here other than it's a pretty basic game at heart -- connect as many matching animal faces as you can. Don't get it twisted though. Survivor mode is where it's at. You can find yourself playing for a long stretch and lose track of time. Also, the graphics are bright and colorful so this is a game that will definitely keep your kid(s) or even YOU interested during long car rides, long waits at the DMV, dentist etc. Overall, I give it a 5 out 5.

Thanks, Amazon FAotD!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but great distraction and fun July 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this as Amazon's free app of the day, tried it out, and the next thing I knew, an hour had passed. If you play it in Endless mode, it provides a stress-free way to pass the time while, say, waiting in line. You can always make it more challenging by trying to make really long chains - but only if you feel like it. Game works in portrait mode. Looks great on my Asus tablet (no surprise - it says "HD" right there in the name). Only thing I'm irked about is why it needs network access. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I guess a firewall is in my near future. I guess after today, what most people want to know is if I would pay $1.29 for it, and my answer is "very likely".

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Little Gamr July 13, 2011

This is a fun little game. I like the animal heads better than the jewels or bubbles in other games. Although simple, it can be addictive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice on Kindle Fire!
Works very well and fun to play on the Kindle Fire (due to the massive screen size).
I like the new concept instead of a match-3 game.
