App Store – Bouncy Bug.

Bouncy Bug is a pretty fun game app for the iPhone and the iPad that is free for a limited time. Normally, it is $0.99. You are a bug that is trapped in a world of jello trying to escape. You have to collapse each “bubble” in the jello by eating up all the fruit by bouncing off the “liquid-y” jello walls by tapping the jello walls. The physics of the game are pretty interesting as it is very similar sensation and feel as a simulation of bouncing on a trampoline. There are lots of levels of play to enjoy and play. Even though it is easy to learn to play, the challenge is figuring out the timing and angles of the bounces.

Recommended for ages 5 and up.

App Store – Car Crusher.

Car Crusher app is an interesting and fun twist in the puzzle app genre. This app is designed for the iPhone and iPad and is currently free for download. Normally, this app is $0.99.

The goal of the game is to arrange the various tools (magnets, conveyors, fans, beams, etc.) in the factory to get the car into the crushing machine while avoiding hazards like dynamite. It is a pretty engaging game with 64 levels of play of increasing difficulty. It does a pretty good job of sharpening reasoning, logic, sequencing and spatial skills.

Recommended for ages 7 and up. Younger children can play the game, but they will have difficulty in solving the puzzles. They will enjoy just moving the different tools around and watching the cars bounce around in the factory.
