A lot of the iPhone’s appeal for parents is the ability to hand the device to their screaming children to shut them up for the last few hours of a cross-country road trip. But even in this niche, one that should be easy for developers to pander to a specific audience, an audience has fallen by the wayside. What about the kid who’s too old to learn the alphabet from Elmo, but too young to go on a killing spree in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars? Nibble Games has your answer: Nibble Jump.
Nibble Jump is a 2D puzzle-platformer which drops you in the shoes (paws?) of a hungry bunny, hopping around eating all the fruit in each level. It’s cutesy game, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s easy. Throughout each of the forty levels, you’ll contend with obstacles like breakable floors and spike pits. Choosing your route and nailing the timing is key to keeping your furry friend alive and his belly full.
It isn’t a particularly long game, and it doesn’t show us anything we’ve never seen before, but if a family-friendly platformer with nothing but five-star reviews sounds like something you (or your kids) would be interested in, you can pick up Nibble Jump from the App Store for $0.99.
You can learn more about Nibble Games on their official website.
