I am a huge fan of apps, especially apps for kids! I spend a lot of time researching and finding apps for my daughter. She gets excited when I tell her I downloaded a new app for her! We heard about Alphie the Squid recently and thought we would give it a try!
First, I was impressed with the music when we first opened up the Alphie app. It opened with a peaceful and slow instrumental song that sounded familiar to me — the theme song from the Forrest Gump movie! As a mom, I’m used to hearing a loud TV in the background or screaming kids. The music in this app actually calmed us down while we were playing! It’s the perfect music to get you prepared for an “under the sea adventure!”
I also love to find apps that are educational and fun at the same time. The Alphie app is sure to entertain your child while providing educational facts during playtime! When your child starts a new level, they get to read a fact such as, “A baby giant squid is born under an inch in length.” As your child finds new prey and predators in the app, they can then go to the gallery and read the fun facts highlighting the diversity of sea creatures in the game.
This app was fun, engaging, and challenging at the same time! It’s exciting to advance to the next level to see what it has to offer! Warning: Although this app seems to be perfect for children, you might just find yourself immersed in the challenges under the sea! I think this app is perfect for the entire family! My daughter and I both think Alphie is adorable, too! What do you think? Look at those eyes!
Join Alphie, a cute baby squid, as he embarks on his life adventure to become a giant squid. Explore the wondrous ocean, its tidal pool, coral reef and depths by riding currents, beating sharks, navigating mazes and growing all the time. Enjoy the vibrant art, funny animation, immersive game play and beautiful music.
How to play:
Help Alphie eat and grow by touching the screen to lead him to swim and explore the ocean, discovering mysterious sea creatures. As you move through each level of ocean, collect all different types of food and fish. Help Alphie dodge, ink, and trap predators. As you strategize to survive, hypnotize your prey and camouflage yourself in colorful seaweeds. Quick reflexes will help you navigate through the mazes and evade attacks from unfriendly creatures. In each level you need to eat enough to keep growing to pass through two current gates. Earn extra points by finding gold treasure chests and uncovering treasure fish! For high score, earn even more points by eating lots of fish consecutively.
Download the Alphie App on Google Play, Android, or iTunes! **Please note, the game is free for on Googleplay and Amazon for the first four levels only, after which the rest of the game is available for $2.99.
