In honor of the new Kindle Fire tablet PC, Kin Games is now going to cover Kindle Fire games. The Kindle Fire is a full-fledged Android tablet PC capable of running any game already available for the Android operating system. And while it’s true that the Android Market is not available on the Kindle Fire, the Amazon Appstore is available. Any games that can be downloaded from the Appstore for Android can run on the Kindle Fire. If you’re looking for free games for the Kindle Fire, 3 out of the top 5 are free, the rest are $2.99.
Update: Someone on Google+ pointed out that Plants VS. Zombies should be on this list so I’m adding it here:
Plants vs. Zombies (Kindle Fire Edition) – Send the undead back to their graves by pummeling them with an army of fearsome flora. Earn achievements and cash, then save up to buy new upgrades for your defenses. Don’t wait too long, though: these unexpected houseguests are demanding to be fed, and brains are on the menu…
Here are five of the most popular games for the Kindle Fire
Muffin Knight $2.99 – Follow the story of a little boy on his journey to return the old fairy’s magical muffins. A strange curse was set on him: With each muffin he touches, he turns into a different creature. The old fairy promises to turn him back into a boy when he gets all the muffins back. Muffin Knight is an action-packed platformer with stunning visuals and myriad fairytale characters, each with their own unique abilities. Play as 15 different characters, each with their unique special attacks.
Angry Birds Free – Your job is to help the Angry Birds seek vengeance against the pigs with the help of a finger-powered slingshot, a good dose of strategy, and a bit of luck. The goal of the game is to catapult each bird toward the pigs, who hide behind a variety of destructible materials. Use each bird’s unique skills to break through crates, boards, stone, ice, snow, glass, boulders, and dynamite to vanquish the devious pigs. It’s the world’s most popular physics-based casual game for many reasons: quirky characters with unique abilities, 285 levels of challenging pig fortifications to defeat.

>Bejeweled 2 $2.99 – Bejeweled is back! The casual game that became a phenomenon a few years ago on the Web returns with this engaging sequel to the original game. As you may know by now, Bejeweled is an immensely popular matching puzzle game with a great interface and addicting gameplay. Bejeweled 2 is simple, relaxing, and fun: The object of the game is to line up at least three identical gems in a row. Swap adjacent gems to make matches. Tap on the gem you want to move and then tap again on the space where you want it to go. Every time you make a successful match, those jewels burst into showers of brilliant color. Match four or more jewels to create prized power gems, yielding higher scores and more dazzling cascades of light. Match five gems to create a Hyper cube–with startling, explosive results.
Bubble Buster Free – Bubble Buster is a deluxe adaptation of the classic bubble bursting game. Bubble hunting addicts will enjoy this classy adaptation of the puzzle game genre. Bubble Buster requires cold logic, grace under pressure, and a steady dead-eye aim. Do you have what it takes? The premise of the game is simple, but there’s nothing simple about mastering this game. You eliminate bubbles by connecting at least three bubbles of the same color. Your cannonball is a bubble of a specific color. So, if you have a yellow cannonball, you must try to try to connect it to two or more yellow bubbles. You aim by tapping precisely where you want the bubble to go. However, your cannon shoots in a straight line; simply tapping a space behind a bubble will only make your shot get stuck in front of that bubble.
