Amazon.com has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today’s app is Symphony of Eternity.
Symphony of Eternity is priced at $10.45 in the Android Market, and is normally priced at $2.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we noted previously, prices sometimes differ between the two stores.
Admittedly, I blinked at the $10.45 in the Android Market.
Symphony of Eternity is described as follows:
Symphony of Eternity, a role-playing game for Android, boasts an gripping story, quirky characters, and freewheeling combat.

One day the pair rescues a solitary girl from a band of bloodthirsty monsters. Explaining that she is of royal blood and the sole survivor of a treacherous palace coup, the mysterious princess opts to join her rescuers on their journey for the magic weapon.
Discover how their destinies are intertwined.
Characters and Combat
If you enjoy old school computer role-playing games such as Might and Magic, Symphony of Eternity should be your next sojourn. The game’s combination of turn-based gameplay with an auto-battle feature makes for smooth, simple, and freewheeling combat. You can control every move from the touch screen, so it’s easy to stay focused on the game.
Quirky, comical, and emotional characters make appearances with their own purpose in the story. Customize characters with different gear or offensive and defensive skills based on total merit points. Nurture your character to your preference by allocating points to desired skills. If you would like to increase attack power or critical strike rate, you can–among many more skill options.
Symphony of Eternity features high quality WVGA graphics, and also supports output to a high-definition monitor. It’s easy to immerse yourself in this game’s beautifully-rendered world.
Symphony of Eternity has a 4.5-star rating in the Android Market, and a 4.5-star rating in the Amazon Appstore.
Such amazing agreement between the two different Android marketplaces are rare.
One comment in the Android Market is “Android’s 2D Final Fanstasy. You won’t believe the quality of this game till you play it. Must have for rpg fans.”
Another comment in the Amazon Appstore is “This game is well worth the $3 so naturally anyone who doesn’t already have it should jump on the opportunity to have it for free. i have well over 20 hours played and continue to play.”
Considering the price in the Android Market and the reviews: get it now.
Those who are considering “buying” a Free Amazon Appstore app might want to consider what it means to developers.
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.
