Kickass game for 5year olds and parents [Coop Phonics, UNIVERSAL]

Here is another trailer I did...shows a bit more of the average gameplay.

Thanks Now if only I could get gamer parents to play it! That is the hard part. This is my first app. I am a long time developer of console games.

I know there is nothing quite like it on the market. But getting the word out I am finding is almost impossible. I gave out 50 promo codes and not one review. Shame because parents who play have a blast with their kids.

Ok, as a gamer parent of two, this does look pretty cool. Going off the video, I'm not sure my daughter is going to learn much, as she's well beyond simple stuff like swim and fly (she's 5 1/2). But then again, i've been working with her on reading for some time now, so she might be ahead of the game for her age. At any rate, I'll give it a whirl and see how she likes it.

My son is only 6 months, so it'll be a while before he could get into it, heh.

I'll post a review in a day or so.

Awesome!! You are the first parent I have been able to find! Thanks for giving it a shot Wizard Mike. I made the game by myself with my Daughter!
It is my first App and really just wanted a game for parents to be able to play WITH their kids. I think you will have a blast. The game cover letter sound basics...and has about 50 unlockable animals. The core of the game is reading animal names

Here is a better trailer.


If you already bought it! great. If not...I could gift you a copy. Just send me a mail to coopplaygames@gmail.com

Thanks so much!

My one year old enjoys iPad apps and so I've tried this on her. She's obviously too young to really test how good the learning aspect is but it held her attention and she responded well to the repetition of words and sounds.

I hope you get some traction with this, it's a really interesting idea and I bet you've got a ton of ideas how it might evolve too.

This looks pretty good, but what is with the 'KickASS' and BadASS'. I don't know, but it just scares me off with the bad language in the description as this is a kids game, right?

Maybe I am being a little sensitive.

The core gameplay looks good, but I have somewhat similar reading games for my autistic son. I must say that nothing has really grabbed his attention so I have somewhat given up on them, but I would probably rather pay $1 for this. Wish listed..

Downloading it now. I am very curious how my 2 year old will do with this. She just turned 2.

I think aapl changed the rules so that people with promo codes can't leave a review.
