Hungry Time! HD ($.99) – Cute iPad Game for Kids
Honestly, when I first received a message to make a review for this game, I thought it sucked. The gameplay was simple, in fact too simple. It rains fruits and you would have to hit them with arrows (when you are an owl) or it rains arrows and you would have to move the apple to avoid getting hit when you select the bunny. Too simple eh?
But I was reviewing it as an adult’s app. Stupid of me. It was titled, Hungry Time. This game was glaring obvious that it was children’s game. It tested it on my two 2-year old nieces and they absolutely loved it.
Talking Tom HD! (Free)
Talking to is a fun animated cat that responds to touches, like screaming in pain when you touch his toes, says no when you touch his tail or gets knocked out when you touch his head. He also eats.
Whats more fun about this app is that it mimics whatever sound you input, at a higher tone. Just see the videos below for samples!
Ben the Talking Dog (Free)
If they get tired of playing with the cat, then you can download Ben, the Talking Dog.
The app system is actually the same in general, in addition, Ben the dog can mix chemicals being a “retired chemistry professor” and all. You can also touch his feet and hands, but not knock out by repeatedly tapping his face.
You can also make him talk by feeding the device with your voice, but this time, the dog speaks in a lower tone.

Spongebob. That alone is a reason to get it. Well, this game is a really a dynamic puzzle iPad game for your Children. You would have to guide the rolling marbles with pictures of the Bikini bottom by drawing slides and tilting the device.
