Some Reviews of Create & Play:

'What a simple, but brilliant concept' (Smart Apps For Kids)

'Arthur & Charles Present Create & Play is an easy must-have iPad game for kids of all ages (parents too) and should be in Apples New & Noteworthy section if not the Game of the Week section truly brilliant app.' (Crazy Mike's Apps)

'Arthur & Charles Present Create & Play app is a wonderfully fun game for kids! But kids better hide it because I caught more than a few adults hogging our iPads, making funny monsters and playing the games!' (Apps For iPads)

'Building faces through the different customizable facial features will bring to life your kids' imagination. And it's also fun for the parents as well! The games are fun brain exercises that will help improve kids' memory and spatial skills. Great illustrations plus smooth animations make this a fun and creative app for the whole family.' (iHeartThisApp)

'Arthur and Charles Present Create & Play is a super-cute and very charming universal app offering a lot of creativity and simple, fun gameplay... Although a kids' game, adults will delight in exploring this app as well, as will the older siblings of this target audience of younger children. I am very smitten with this app and the art of Moopf.' (GiggleApps)

'Arthur & Charles Present Create & Play has such a friendly feel to it... Moopf's art has appealed to all the ages at my house and it's been fun to watch everyone notice different little details on the faces. This app has been a charming surprise and a hit with my kids.' (The iPhone Mom)

Yeah, I wanted to ensure that multiple members of the same family could have their own 'account' in the app so they could create their own faces to play the games with without getting rid of those made by others.

If you'd like to see some examples of the faces you can make in Create & Play, I posted many to Tumblr over the last month:

I have 4 promo codes for the app left over that need using by the 7th September. Would be a shame to let them go to waste. They are:

Please post if you use one so others know which ones are left. Enjoy!

Just a heads up that I've submitted an update to Create & Play today. This adds the following:

- A new 'Share' button so you can send your face creations by email or save them to your device's photo album. You can choose the size of the image you want to save (up to 256 x 256 on iPhone 4 & iPad), whether you want round or square corners and whether you want a border added. Makes it perfect for creating faces to use as your avatars etc.

- 50 new face pieces covering Halloween and monster themes. That gives a total of 228 face pieces in total now - the possibilities are huge!

- A new Halloween-themed animated background when playing the games.

Hopefully it will be available by next Monday and I'll update the thread when it hits.
