A classic hidden object game taken to next level with attractive graphics.
This app is designed to keep kids engrossed and entertained. Thus, not much content has been added to enable learning.
Searching for a image or pattern in a large complex image is always fun. It can keep one glued on to the screen for a very long time. With wonderful graphics, this game is one of the best one to stare at.
While ads are necessary to monetize apps, they are always tricky when it comes to apps for kids. This app throws full screen ads that might catch a kid by surprise and they may accidentally click on it. This mars the over all good experience. Though ads can be avoided by making in-app purchase. That is a good feature to have.
When social sharing option is provided, there should be some way for a parent to disable it. Maybe an option to remove social sharing button if an in-app purchase is made. Something to consider in the next release.

The tragic news of Empire State Building Shooting put parents in the position of explaining a tragic news to their kids.
While it is tempting to shield them from such news, it is important that they hear such news from their parent. No one can answer their questions and reassure their concern like a parent.
Those who have seen the Japanese movie ‘Battle Royale‘ (again based on a novel of the same name) have already encountered this theme. So have readers of the short story, ‘The Lottery‘ by Shirley Jackson. Even those who have heard of the Greek legend of King Minos of Crete asking defeated King Aegeus of Athens to send seven boys and seven girls to the Minotaur – a half-man, half-bull monster.
For many parents the movie came as a surprise. They were surprised to know that the book was already very popular among the teen audience. Should the movie be shown to young kids is a very controversial topic.
In an article on the subject by Joshua Gans asks a very pertinent question: And what age is appropriate? When ever a parent encounters a life situation that can be harsh on the kid, the question in their mind is: at what age will exposure to this situation appropriate.
We at Gungroo join the parents on this journey. A partner to a parent who is guiding the kid online just like they guide them in real life.
