I really like all the Punflay Apps and with this one being part of the Mathomatix series, I knew it would be a hit with my son. Now even though Aidan is only 3, he is slowing picking up on this App. It is a little more difficult than other apps but that is because it is geared towards 4 and up. The app is fun and so bright and colorful, not to mention that it is 5 mini-games in one! There is a game where you have to make a pizza with the 3 toppings shown only, tilt the phone to feet the animal it's correct source of food (cat like fish...), a game where you have to fill in the sequence of pictures (moon, moon, planet, moon, moon, ...), a bowling game where you have to knock down the pins corresponding to the numbers at the top, tap animals in the correct sequence of the sounds they make (bark, meow, bark, meow..) There is so much to learn in this app that for less than $1 dollar I think it is a deal! I can see my son getting bored with it eventually of course, but for now he is loving it and so far there are a lot of challenges for him to tackle and master.
The space rocks portion of this app is the best part. The sound pattern recognition didn't generate new patterns so it will become boring quickly for your little ones. In general, the playability of this app is limited.
