Bugs and Bubbles, by Little Bit Studio, is an amazing app and a wonderful follow-up to their highly successful Bugs and Buttons… I expected no less from this wonderful app. With the same beautiful graphics, and simple music, children will once again be delighted with squishing and directing bugs and bubbles. There are all new games, but some similar concepts presented. Patterning and counting start out easy but progress quickly. Matching letters and colors were a big hit with the younger ones. A new type of game, with bugs and bowling, had the kids laughing and trying to get that last pin. Other new games include a math scale, and even a bug maze in which you have to tilt your device. Even adults will find this challenging. Writing practice is also turned into an exciting adventure!
A similar menu interface allows kids to get right to the games, and swishing allows them to access the next menu of games. There is a cute little hand that demonstrates how to play. The games have cute sound effects and also employ some new finger skills. There is also an area to collect stickers. Kids have been asking when there is going to be more bugs and buttons… and now the app is here! The price is $2.99, a bargain, as it provides hours of entertainment from young to old!
