Amazon Kindle Adds Free Video Games

Talking with Charlie Rose last week, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos quipped: “The number one thing people are doing on iPad right now is playing video games … The number one thing people are doing on Kindle is reading books.” Not anymore! The Kindle Store has added two free video games for the eReader.

The first game is entitled Every Word. The simple black-and-white interface is included above. Check it out: “You are given six or seven scrambled letters with the goal of finding as many words as you can. You score points by filling out the words in each empty spot on the board using only the letters that appear at the top of the game board. Keep at it until time runs out or until you fill up the board. The more words you make, the higher your score!”

The other game is entitled Shuffled Row–it seems like solitaire Scrabble on speed. Here’s more: “See how many words you can make from 60 lettered tiles. The tiles are added to your row one at a time so you’ll constantly be working with a new set of letters. After you submit a word, the letters you used will be removed and new ones will be added.” (Via Information Week)
