I received compensation for this post. All opinions are mine!
Sawyer is getting more interested in playing electronic games. He has asked to play the Wii, and recently, my iPad. He has a few coloring apps I have downloaded already, but I wanted to find some educational apps he could enjoy. I recently received a promo code in exchange for a review for Alphie the Squid.
This is an app that puts the player into an underwater adventure. You are in control of a baby squid that grows as your feed him fish. Along the way, he meets many other marine creatures, which will be added to your gallery as you pass them. The gallery opens to show you the animals you have discovered. There is also a tidbit of info about the animal, making the app a fun way to learn.
There are also helpful in-app tips that pop up as you continue on your journey. These are perfect for those just learning to play the game. Sawyer quickly caught on to the point of moving Alphie around the ocean bottom. You simply tap him and drag your finger around the screen – and he will follow!
We have had fun playing with Alphie the Squid. Sawyer doesn’t care much for the educational aspect and gallery just yet, but I think he will be more interested in that once he begins to read. He just enjoys dragging Alphie the Squid all over the ocean!
