Hidden object game Living Classics marks Amazon's first foray into social gaming, with the Facebook app taking inspiration from familiar tales such as Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and King Arthur.

Living Classics is the first fruit of Amazon Game Studios, a team that is aiming to deliver "a great, accessible gaming experience that gamers and our customers can play any time."

Players have to spot the moving objects in scenes populated by characters from favorite childhood stories, in a quest to reunite a family of foxes.

Amazon enters the social gaming sector just as others are looking for a new formula: both Zynga and Facebook have taken a battering on the stock market of late, though Zynga output still accounts for four of the social network's top five apps.
