Hi Dear Friends,

I was recently contacted by a developer of an app for Simon the Sorcerer (first game) wanting me to try it. All I had is a KindleFire HD which I didn't even know was an android type. I am apparently being dragged into the 21st century (kicking and screaming) whether I want to or not. I'm still trying to stay in the Nineteenth Century or is it 20th??


Anyway, Mojo Touch was given rights from AdventureSoft to develop game for Android. I am nearly finished with it and it is graphically and musically advanced. This is the talkie version. It is designed for touch screen play even though it has classic play (mouse cursor) option (I could not use this option.) Haven't a clue why.

It played well after I learned how to get Simon around (light tap on screen where you want Simon to go - especially through doorways). Use medium graphics mode under settings and original music (Midi) to play faster and smoother.

Avalable at Amazon and GooglePlay. Is also available for apple devices I-phone and I-pod.

Can you tell me what other adventure games will play on my KIndle Fire HD.

Thank you and enjoy Simon the Sorcerer.

Mr. Bill

There is a list here on GameSpot but many are stretching the definition of Adventure.

I have an Iphone and Ipad so I can't help on Android versions. I still prefer my adventures on the PC also. lol

The first two Broken Swords are available for Android. I played them on my phone.

I'm not sure what the difference would be. It's not like you'd plug a mouse into your android. (or is it?)
Is the "cursor option" supposed to show a cursor onscreen?

There are DOSBox apps for android, and you could play a lot of games using that. I think "DOSBox Turbo" is supposed to be the best (fastest).

There is also ScummVM for Android

I don't own an android, though I've thought about getting one (specifically the Samsung Galaxy Note). So I don't know how difficult these apps are to configure, or how well they'd work on a Kindle Fire.

Hi,
As you have amazon connections, just go to game apts and you will find a lots of games that play on you android. Some are free others are as low as .99 cents, easy learning curve. I use other anroid base readers and tablets, but use amazon most of the time. You should be able to find games on google play. I'm replaying the first two Broken Swords on a Le Pan.
Have fun. By the way thanks for all of the older walk throughs. Charllotte

Yes it does show a cursor that you can drag around with your finger. Activaing it was my problem.
