Fun Kid Games For Groups


The App Store doesn't include only games and software for adults, but also for children. Remember, that iPod touch is a great mobile platform especially for simple and fun games for your children. However, it is hard to find none offensive games for your child, and even harder to find an educative game. The Duck Duck Moose Partnership is trying to improve this low featured game segment within the App Store by releasing a funny, yet educative game for your child, or the child in you.

This game was developed strictly for the third generation operating system for iPhone mobile platform (or later versions of the third generation).

A great feature of this game is that everything is touchable. Every detail can be touch and explained. This game is fully interactive, exactly what kids need from games. The story line is exactly the one from the song. The graphics are really nice made, 2D but full of nice details, to enrich every environment uses. This game provides a full music experience, with the possibility of making your own music (with the musical eggs), or listen to classical music, and even record your own singing. Don't worry about controls, since the environment is fully interactive, you can touch anything, the only navigational control happens when you poke the spider (the game jumps from a screen to another).

Other elements your child can do within the game is to make the rain come down, play peek a boo with a frog, and many other fun, and non offensive, or violent mini in games. This game is educative, because you can easily teach your children everything you want them to know about the nature, some animals, and environment. Also, the tutor fly will answer questions for your child, so that you get a few minutes of rest.

Questions like "who makes a rainbow?" should keep your child fascinated enough. Your child can also play several learning games, such as counting from one to ten (in the meanwhile a squirrel will build a house), or find hidden eggs. Overall, the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" is perfect for your child to have some fun, keep quiet, and learn some important information about the environment, animals, or even to count from one to ten.

Fun Free Internet Games


Ten years ago the computer pinball games were really amazing. Since then not only computers have evolved into powerful machines, but also games were redesigned to offer more than a static action. Nowadays, you can still find pinball games online on special game sites. However, someone decided to resurrect for the last time (before a complete extinction) the pinball games. Therefore, in order to make this game even more attractive, Blue Bear Studio released an iPod touch and iPhone pinball game.
<-300x250 Medium Rectangle - center->
On October 06, 2009, Byron Wright, under the Blue Bear Studio's umbrella, released "B.I.T.S" is more than a pinball simulator, bringing new play modes and interesting features. You can currently find this application on App Store under the Games category within the "New and Net worthy" subcategory, with the latest version, 1.0, available for 0.99 price tag.


This game was developed for both 2nd and 3rd generation operating system for iPhone mobile platform. There is no actual story line; however you do get a redesigned game play with a couple of new modes (beside the standard configuration) and new features. The graphics are really well designed, with nice animations, and excellent colors.


Basically you only get one environment, but several changes do occur within the game, that will not let the environment get boring. The sound effects are nicely done. Unfortunately, you are not allowed (yet, keep in mind this is only the first version) to listen to your own iTunes Music Library. However, you get good controls, not really intuitive but once you get their location, these controls provide excellent feedback and fast response time. Therefore, if you are going to touch the top right part of the screen the game menu will appear. If you will touch the top left part of the screen, you will "pause" the game.


In order to release the ball you have to touch and drag all the way down your finger (depending on the speed you are willing to give at launch) and release your finger in order to release the ball. The bottom part of the screen, within the game, is divided only in right and left. When you touch the right bottom part of the screen you will activate the right flippers, while when you touch the left bottom part of the screen you will activate the left flippers. The B.I.T.S mode provides five levels of game (as I said before, within the same tablet or environment). With every new level completed you are going to get a bigger score and you will receive points.


A nice feature, within "B.I.T.S" is the ball cloner that will enable you to clone your ball in 60 seconds as many times you can possibly can. Beside the ball cloner you also get the power ups (on board holograms that will speed up your ball once you get it through the holograms).once you have completed the B.I.T.S mode with all the five levels, you will unlock the Multi ball Mayhem mode (in 20 seconds you will get one ball per second, meaning this mode enables you to play with 20 balls in the same time). Overall, the "B.I.T.S" is not the best resurrection of computer pinball games. Even so, for $0.99 this game is pretty fun. Probably within future updates this game will become more attractive.

Fun Online Games


The first commercialized mobile console games had only a few pre installed games. Those consoles included a monochrome display and several plastic buttons, which in time were providing less and less feedback. Even so, I still remember how much fun I had when playing on that kind of game console. It had a few games, all within the same style, puzzle games and block games.

Since then enough time have passed, too much time actually if you prefer to see that period of time in a graphic with the game console evolution. Since then, manufacturers not only improved their technology, design, build quality, but also allowed the software industry to evolve producing extremely fun (or scary depending on what kind of games you prefer) games for the latest available gadgets including the PSP, Nintendo DS, and the newly rebranded as a game console iPod touch 3rd generation.

To provide certain remember or the old times with the block game console, seller and developer Dan Russell Pinson released on September 15, 2009, the latest version of "Block Drop". You can currently find this application on the App Store under the Games category with the current version, 1.1, available for purchase and download for $0.99 price tag. "Block Drop" was developed for both iPod touch (all the generations) and iPhone (2007 model, 3G and 3GS) running the second and third generation of operating system for the iPhone mobile platform.

As you already understood this game is not part of the power consumption game category. "Block Drop" is an addictive puzzle game, which will keep you entertained for several hours at least. In terms of story line, there is not much to say about this game. However, the game play is quite straight forward, your "mission" is to successfully sink all the dropped blocks and finish on the checkered flag. The only rule is not to get into the water. Believe it or not, this game provides 999 different levels. Therefore, this game play makes it hard even for the biggest puzzle fans to finish the game before a week of continuous play.

In order to complete the game you will need to focus your entire attention and to throw in the game all your surviving skills and reflexes, achieved by now from other puzzle games. The graphics are quite nice, thanks to the 3D environment. You get nice rendition and small animation within "Block Drop". To complete the user experience, the developer added dynamically created music for each and every level played, while the controls are easy to use, and logic. No one who uses an iPod touch or an iPhone should have problems with the intuitive controls offered by "Block Drop".

Also, you get dynamically generated levels (since there are 999 of them this should have been obvious). In case you find the game hard, you can chose to use the show solution feature. You can even chose to play fast survival levels, for an extreme game experience. Beside the long hours of game play, use the high score list to check your last high score, and try to beat your last score every time you play. The latest version provides a smoother movement, and some issue fixed. Overall, "Drop Block" is a reinvented puzzle game, which needs no further presentation for puzzle game fans.
