We didn't play test BvB Racing a lot with kids, the controls might take a little while to learn but if there is a need, we could add "kid friendly" controls in updates.

King of Opera we did test extensively with kids and that game seems very popular among kids, families with young children.
At first I wasn't aware that this was a multiplayer game on one device. That is awesome! I had both iPads out and had the game opening on both when I was presented with the split screen option to choose my car.

The kids loved it. The steering wheel control was a bit awkward at first but after a few races they both said they really liked it and preferred it over simple controls like arrows, etc. The 4-yo said the wheel was tough but I think this game might be a bit out of his league anyway.

I played a few races with them and found it to be quite fun. There's just enough difficultly to it and the races last a perfect amount of time.

Overall an excellent game. I especially love the artwork. The UI is well designed and makes great use of the screen real estate. It's all so well put together. I hope this game gets the attention it deserves!

Thanks!!

We'll keep working on steering wheel designs, functionality but great to hear that your kids preferred that over buttons as we thought that wheels are more fun than buttons etc., at least in this game (as the game is not a "driving simulation game").

We've used "local multiplayer" as the name for the "single device multiplayer" feature after seeing Apple starting to use it in AppStore's "Multiplayer" category - but I guess it's a bit misleading as WiFi etc. multiplayer is often called "local multiplayer" too.

I fixed the links on the first post on this thread, or just search "bvb" on AppStore on iPad. The game is available globally so you should be able to download it.

Thanks for buying King of Opera, and great to hear that you're liking it!

Blonde vs Brunette Update #1 submitted to Apple!

The update should go live in next 10 days or so, a bit depending on how long the review process takes. Below is a list of new features in the update:

- Single player challenges at three different difficulty levels .
- Crazy jumps astronaut style with Space Race Pack (premium feature).
- Cool controls for Moon Car.
- Mirror power-up - makes the game even more unfair!
- Small improvements here and there.

We can't share screenshots of the new features yet as "Who Will be the Challenger?" question is still open! : ) You can cast your vote at http://www.facebook.com/bvbseries

We'll share more details once the update is live on AppStore.

Yeah that makes sense, we would appreciate greatly a gameplay trailer so if you can do it - that would be sweet!!

We've been thinking that it's better to use game play videos that people produce vs. doing our own, kind of benefits everybody. We've used PC builds for the in-game footage in our videos but the videos we see people produce with actual iPad, iPhone game have been much better, give better idea of the game.

You can follow this thread, or send me (jouni at tuokio dot com) your email so I'll ping you once the update goes live.
