Happy Street

Since we’ve had a lot of reviews already on action or strategy games, we thought it would be great to include a game where users get to interact with other people in a friendly manner. Not sure where the game publishers came up with the name, but I’m assuming that everyone on this game live on a street and are incredibly happy (Why can’t we live there in real life…). As soon as you download this app, you will get what you expect. No not happiness, but a game filled with lively colors and a set of cute characters.

If this game isn’t action or strategy then what exactly is it? Well, Happy Street allows the users to build their own characters as well as interacting with the many other real players that are connected through Game Center or Facebook. In Happy Street, you get to customize not only your characters but the village that you live as well. Since the game, allows you build shops, hotels, and various other structures in the game there is always something to do in your village. Building structures isn’t the only thing that you can do in this app. You can always go sculpt, cook, explore other places in the game.

Is it suitable for kids? This app is definitely a kid friendly game where violence isn’t the main focus. In this game rather than destroying villages, you are building them up and interacting with other friends. The game itself could be a little challenging for children who are too young to understand what a building is, but for kids who are a bit older and already are in school, this game is perfect for them.

Is it educational? It’s really difficult to determine the educational value of a game because kids can learn many different things in games that could be useful later on in life. However, since this game is structured in a way to help users build their own village, we think it would be a helpful game in allowing kids understand their own towns that they live in!

Happy Street is a nice refreshing change from the puzzle and war games we have seen lately. It’s nice to be able to visit your neighbor without having to conquer their land. All in all, this game is definitely a fun game for kids and adults to play. We would definitely recommend you to give it a try!

Panda Pop, doesn’t it sound so wonderfully cute? The name I believe speaks for itself if you are wondering if the game is appropriate for your kids, but since we at Mobile Apps for Kids want you the reader to have the best information to make informed decisions about what apps your children play, we of course couldn’t wait and tried the app for ourselves.  

So, besides the cute name what is Panda Pop? If you played a lot of puzzle type of games before the game play might seem familiar to you. Your goal is to match colored balls with the ones that are floating above you in a vaguely familiar setting that you might have seen in Kung-Fu Panda the movie. The background music takes you to ancient China with the traditional music matches the background images of old Chinese homes. Throughout the game, you won’t see any violence or bloody gore. This isn’t your Spartan Wars or any other type of diehard fighting or war game. This is an easy going puzzle game that a person of any age could enjoy. Of course, the game itself might be challenging for younger children (which in our opinion isn’t necessarily a bad thing).  

Besides, the suitability of the game for children. The game play though not unique is surprisingly addictive. Perhaps there is something about the human brain that loves to match colors and solve puzzles. Nevertheless, you will find yourself advancing from level to level without having known how many hours have passed. The possibility of you enjoying the game more than your children is great so beware for those with addictive personalities! As you continue to strategically match the colored balls and make your way through stages, you might wonder where this end? Well, this game has 250+ levels and variety of items for you to choose from so the game may seem endless for sure.  

Since, we are a big fan of child friendly games we definitely think this game is worth a try for anyone who is interested in solving puzzles on their mobile phones. It’s challenging enough for you to be stretched but not so much where you will start getting a headache. Since there are so many various levels and items, we can definitely say that this game has a high replay value. Considering that it’s free, its even more worth it to give it a try. One caveat though, if you have Facebook on your phone, your child may be able to connect the game to your Facebook account. So, do be aware that connecting the app to your Facebook is a possibility.  

All in all, we can be confident that you will enjoy this game even if it is to just pass the time and give this game a pass for being safe your children to play as well.
