Amazon Fire Tablets are perfect for a lot of things. Whether it's watching movies or being productive on the new Fire HD 10, one thing that kids love most about using a tablet is playing games. The Amazon Appstore has a lot of great options, but there are also plenty of not-so-great choices. These are the best kids games for Amazon Fire HD tablets, whether for a Fire HD 7 or the Fire HD 10 Kids Pro — there's lots of fun to be had.
Minecraft is one of the world's most popular games today, even after its official release in 2011. Since then, the game has expanded onto nearly every platform, including Amazon Fire Tablets. The sheer scope of the game and limitless avenues for creativity makes it a great game for kids to explore and build.
The open world is filled with your imagination in building anything and everything from pixelated-looking block pieces. Depending on the four modes you are playing in, the creative process is a bit different. In Survival Mode, you explore the world, looking for various resources needed to build items you want, like structures and weapons. In addition, there are some creatures like zombies and creepers to be aware of.
Creative Mode is there to let you build anything you can imagine with unlimited resources and no fear of being attacked by the creatures. Adventure mode lets you build worlds for others to explore, or you yourself can wander through other player's creations. The fourth mode is Spectator, where you are free to view creations from others while being invisible.
Minecraft has a social aspect to it as it can be played with others online, so that's something to keep in mind as your child gets involved. Minecraft has some impressive creations, like full recreations of popular buildings from movies or structures found in the real world. Minecraft can allow anyone to explore their creativity and learn problem-solving skills.
