Kidzzle: iPhone App Written review
Here at the iPhone App Review, we see a lot of apps aimed at small children. We aren’t really ones to complain about this, but it does make os somewhat of experts in the field. In fact, we’d wager we’ve seen more children’s applications than just about anyone. As such, we’re quite happy to introduce to you now one of our new favorites, Kidzzle by developer Mimpi Studios. The app comes super-packed with enough puzzling action to keep just about any child entertained. And with more bulk packs available for purchase in-app, you may never see your child’s nose out of your iPhone again! For our full review of this children’s puzzling app, head on down below the break.
Concept and Gameplay
As stated, unlike a lot of games Kidzzle does not try to inundate your child with cleve mini-games or educational bores. Instead, it simply offers them a lot of puzzles and puzzle variations to work through. We quite liked this approach, as it gives the kid a more entertaining app to play with on the iPhone. The app comes with a free set of animal puzzle packs, which has your child rearranging animal bits in every possible way until the whole picture has been completed. For instance, the child can use silhouettes to finish the puzzles, plugging in the animals against the shapes that match. They can also piece together critters in a more traditional puzzling way. And lastly, they can use “fragments” or jumbled up parts of the animals to finish off the whole thing. As a free app were slightly concerned about the amount of material that’s here to work with. But with three unique game modes and a multitude of animals to construct, we have no doubt that your child will be entertained for hours.
Design and Graphics
Of course, even more important than the gameplay of an app aimed at children is its design. If the graphics aren’t endearing enough, your child will have no interest in it. Thankfully, Kidzzle pulls through on all counts. The interface itself is light and easy to navigate, while the puzzle’s drag-and-drop mechanic could not be simpler to use. The puzzles aren’t what we’d call challenging, but for the age group the app is aimed at, it should be just right.
We’ll spin the whole thing to you this way: For an app that’s free to try, your child will get a lot of entertainment value. Furthermore, additional puzzle packs aren’t much to purchase, and with the option for even more gameplay than what’s here, Kidzzle is a downright bargain. So if you’re looking for something new for your children to play with on your iPhone, there’s no better place to start than Kidzzle.
Kidzzle requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
