They would often play games for fun but their very favourite thing was sitting together, watching the stars glisten. One unusual day however there were no stars to be seen, they had just gone!…

Rocket Robo Rocks
I bought this for my two boys (7 & 8) not knowing what to expect. They have had tens of hours of fun in a visually rich environment with challenging gameplay. The game designer deserves credit for a well though out game with an intuitive touchscreen interface allowing play into the third dimension. However it is a level game and the levels get harder and more difficult toward the end. Be prepared for some frustration in the final levels as they are quite hard. This game is excellent value. Highly recommend.
