Bugs Or Buttons: It's Your Choice

First off the graphics in Bugs or Buttons 2 push the limit on any kids app I've seen thus far. Even on the small screen of an iPhone the texture of the insects, buttons, and background are comparable to a next gen-console; it's nothing short of impressive.

The goal of Bugs and Buttons 2 is to teach children critical learning skills such as counting, sorting, pinching, balance, and many more. By utilizing two separate modes of gameplay and over 10 different levels to try, the chance of your kid getting bored while playing this are slim to none.

The controls in both game modes work flawlessly no matter if you're sorting falling buttons into their respective bins, keeping the bugs from ruining your picnic, or any of the other engaging styles of gameplay. Yu will see no lag in the game itself or a missed tap or swipe by the interface.

If you are afraid some of the games may be a little too easy for your child, don't fret, because the game itself gears the difficulty to your performance in each round. I encourage parents to test this out to see what I mean: even though the tasks may seem basic to us within moments you will find yourself engaged in the gameplay as the speed and difficulty increases to your level.

This educational app for kids designed for ages 3-5, but every child is different. Each of the 18 activities of the kids app has its own beautiful, and engaging music.This will ensure the game will be challenging to your child regardless of age or familiarity of gaming on an iOS device.
