[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - How to make a usual game even more fun? Perhaps take it to the new level? Make it engaging, interactive, easy to grasp? This is what AppsAndKids has done with a new "Animal Tiles for Kids" iPhone app. Not only does it provide an entertaining activity for the kids but also allows to develop logical thinking, fine motor skills and to learn different animals.
Consider puzzle solving as an example. Puzzle solving is something that kids and adults engage with every day. If the child is trying to solve a puzzle, he or she is actually preparing to solve much bigger problems in the future.
That's why so many puzzle games surround our children. They are given jig-saw puzzles, asked riddles, offered the tangrams to collect. It is also popular to give the tiled images to small children in order for them to collect the correct full image. It can be either an image of an animal, a fruit, or anything else.
This is how the idea of Animal Tiles for Kids game has been developed. All in itself being fun and useful activity for the kids puzzle solving can be made even more attractive with the help of an iPhone.
The game is geared towards the kids of 3-5 years old and is designed in a way that allows kids to easily navigate the game without any particular instructions or supervision. Children are presented with an image of an animal scattered into tiles. After the animal - say it's a cow - is correctly collected by simply dragging the tiles, it congratulates the child with a small dance. And it will even say "moo" if touched again.
Besides the development of a problem solving and pattern recognition skills, the game allows kids to improve finger movement coordination, recognize animals and definitely to have lots of fun. Parents at the same time can be sure that it is not some type of a "time-killer" app, but a game which actually provides a value to the children. Therefore parents may have a deserved little break - even the best ones need that. Sometimes.
Positive feedback and traction from the customers is starting to flow back. "Animal Tiles for Kids looks great for 4 and older" says Jen, one of the parents using the game with her children. And it surely does.
