Game recommenditions for my nephew and niece

Hi all!

I'm giving my old iphone to my nephew and niece. He is 6 and she is 9.

And I want to load it up with games for them.

Games they have liked a lot are

- Scoops
- Sneezies
- Koi pond
- Trism (he likes puzzles)

I was looking for some other games they might like. Last time I asked I got Sneezies as a suggestion and my nephew loved it.

Thanks for the advice.

This should be in the Mass "What should I get?" thread. Anyways, I'm sure a mod will merge them soon.

You could try the games Dizzypad and Sky Burger. Both games are made from the developers of Scoops, and they both have similarities to Scoops and Koi Pond.

spawn illuminati is an entertainment app. it's not really a game. it's kind of like a fireworks show but it has a ton of cool things that you can do with it. it would be great for those ages... even though i love it as well

also arachanadoodle is a cool puzzle game and great kiddie graphix.

the 9 year old (since he likes puzzles) would enjoy cat physics. it is currently free right now too!

bed bugs

fruit ninja

those games are all really fun. and pretty kid friendly

Right off the top of my head, go for...

Dizzypad
Angry Birds
Alley Gator
Anything from Donut Games (Cat Physics etc...)
Cosmo Kid
Flaboo
HellKid
Doodle Jump/ Mega Jump
Piyo Blocks 2

Hope that starts you off right.

Invaders Must Die.

In addition to Dizzypad and Sky Burger, I'd also like to add Hoppy to my list. And I think Mega Jump over Doodle Jump would be the appropriate choice if you are going for one of them; Mega Jump's graphics are more kid-appealing and there are much more power-ups available. There are also cute unlockables you can't find in Doodle Jump.

Speedy Pigs could also be fun for them.

BowQuest: PandaMania is also free right now and a wonderful game.

Let's see... *flips through iPod*

Rolando, Trees of Doom, JellyCar (1 and 2), and Chuzzle are very kid-friendly because they have fun art styles and are easy to learn.

Hmm... Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars, NOVA, and Samurai: Way of the Warrior.

But really: Ninjatown Trees of Doom, Bust a Move, and LoveCalc.

I have 2 nephews, 11 and 6 and they cant get enough of Skee-Ball. I didn't understand it at first, because the graphics are kinda meh, but I guess the flick controls are spot on, plus you grab tickets and buy things in a store just like a real arcade so I'm assuming that's the charm.

Theres this bubble wrap app that all you do is pop the bubbles and it makes the popping noise. My three Nieces LOVE this game for some reason, plus they look so silly playing it, it'll be fun for you too! I don't know the name of it, but if you find it, or if someone knows what I'm talking about; it's a great game for kids.
