The level to which the game was reviewed

All accessible levels of this app were played.

App description

This free version of the app presents a collection of animals, which when tapped show a real life image of that animal, plays the sound they make and the name of the animal appears on screen.

Reviewers comments

This simple game allows the player to click on a cartoon image of an animal and then have a real life photograph, the name of the animal written and said aloud to them along with the noise the animal makes. In the free version of the app there are only animals for the player to see, however, if the full version is downloaded the player can then choose from other animals, modes of transport, musical instruments, foods and scenery.

The player can select any of the 12 animal cartoons on screen. To return to the home page the player must tap the screen again.

In App purchasing

There is the option for the player to Upgrade to the Full Version of the App and there is a Link to other apps by the developer in the locked parent section.

Online information

When the player clicks on the Settings button within the App it shows another screen with many internet options. To get to the Settings page the player must click on the clog and then follow the on screen instructions (presumably put in place for an adult to use). The adult can then choose to change the language of the game and to turn on/off the words and voice over of the game. The Settings page also allows the option to Upgrade to Full Version, Like/Rate the App, Email a Friend, Leave Feedback, view More Apps and Read the Privacy Policy. There is also the option to view the company’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Game playing behaviour which may be of concern to some parents

There was no game playing behaviour which may be of concern to parents discovered during this review.

Some of the cartoon animals featured in this app may not be what children expect them to be. For example, there were three different bird options but only one dog, cat etc. Some of the real life images do not resemble what may be usual Australian animals of that choice, such as dog and goat.

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.
