Reviewers comments

This app has the options to Play or Autoplay. It is a narrated story about cows discovering the game of cricket. The text appears on each page with the words highlighted as they are read out loud. In Play mode, the reader can tap pictures on the screen, which may cause activities to occur and which are often amusing. Tapping cows makes them laugh, jump or moo at different pitches; crickets hop; birds lay eggs and sometimes other surprises; animal spectators cheer in their own special way.  Readers can take a team photo, with their own face included as part of the team. Occasionally, a child’s voice suggests ways in which the reader can interact with the story. Young children may find this book entertaining and amusing.

Online information

There is an option to tell a friend via email. The reader can Like the developer on Facebook.

Other

Use of substances: On a few pages, one of the cows holds a drink, which resembles a glass of wine.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
