|What I liked||
I like how the app use the iPad as a controller and the user have to tilt the iPad to make the target cross hair move around. The graphics are cool and sharp and the music and the sound effects complement the game really well. I like how the game is simple and easy to pick up. It didn't take me long at all to figure out what needs to be done without any instructions.
The developer should really consider adding different power ups other than the time and the grey circle. Perhaps something that allow the user to have extra crosshairs for few seconds etc. it will make the game more engaging. Perhaps add score multipliers for x amount og freeness circle in a row etc. I could not figure out what determined what experiment results do you get but after 5 different levels the experiments result started to repeat it self. This app has a good base but I think it can be made a lot more fun for the kids.
Great app that utilizes the tilt motion of the iPad as a controller really well. Great music and and great graphics make the app more compelling but the addition of different power ups, different scoring system can make the app becomes more exciting.
