Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today’s app is Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage.
Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage is priced at $0.99 in Google Play. It is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we’ve noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing and availability between the two marketplaces.
Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage is described as follows:
He’s cute. He’s annoying. He’s an orange! To some, he’s the king of comedy, the prince of puns, the earl of irritation. To others, he’s just a royal pain in the butt. Call him what you like, just don’t call him an apple–he hates that! The smart-alecky, helium-inflated citrus has won a huge following since his animated skits debuted online in 2009. Now the Annoying Orange comes to you in this hot new arcade game for Android.
Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage features vivid fruit-spattering action in a beautifully rendered 3D kitchen. Toss characters like Cantaloupe, Banana and ‘Painapple’ to pulpy deaths with a flick of your finger while Orange eggs you on with maniacal laughter and irritating puns.
Way to Concentrate!
Rack up Kitchen Carnage points by slicing and juicing all of the produce in sight. Use blenders, cutting boards, and the almighty “Vent Hood of Death” to earn point multipliers. Create enough of a commotion and other foods hiding in the cabinets will get curious. When you see the “shake” signal, shake your mobile to ferret out members of Orange’s entourage who’re hiding in there and earn bonus time for smoking them out. Watch out for the irradiated limes as they roll by across the kitchen counter. Collect three of these prized mutant citruses to unleash the fury of the 1,000,000 watt microwave and become the kitchen’s most feared fruitatarian.
Be sure to check out the new Balloon Pop challenge where you can unleash your fruity fury and climb the OpenFeint leaderboard. Other new features include the new high-point character Fred Figglecorn as well as the new Fruitcake character bonus.
Juicy 3D Graphics and Unique Voice Clips
Kitchen Carnage has everything to woo the Annoying Orange fanatic. In addition to eye-popping 3D graphics and splatter action, the app offers fans a fridge full of more than 50 unique voice clips and animations from the hit series.

Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage is rated at 4.7 stars in Google Play, and has 3.6 stars in the Amazon Appstore. This game is a “buy” while it is free.
There is also a version in the iOS App Store. It is priced at $1.99 and has a 5-star rating for both the current version and overall.
We continue to be disappointed with the FAOTD program. It began promisingly enough, with Angry Birds Rio, but we’ve gotten tired of the endless games or niche apps, and especially apps which have no uptake in Google Play, and seem to be FAOTD as a desperation move by the developer.
We’d like to see free versions of say, Office-compatible software or useful utilities such as CalenGoo instead of niche apps or endless games (we just assume every day that it’s going to be a game; it’s gotten that bad).
Amazon.com opened up the Appstore despite a lawsuit by Apple, which has previously trademarked the term “App Store.” Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. Amazon.com has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
