iGevalt - Dreidel Simulator

By Azoombi

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Description

iGevalt is a 3D dreidel simulator for Hanukkah.

A dreidel is a four-sided spinning top, played with during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah (also spelled Chanukkah, Chanukah, and Hanukah). Each side of the dreidel has a letter of the Hebrew alphabet:
נ (Nun)
ג (Gimel)
ה (Hei)
ש (Shin)

Together, these form the acronym for
"נס גדול היה שם" (Nes Gadol Haya Sham). This translates to "a great miracle happened there".

These letters also form a mnemonic for the rules of the game played with a dreidel: Nun stands for the Yiddish word nite ("nothing"), Hei stands for halb ("half"), Gimel for gants ("all"), and Shin for shteln ("put").

Dreidel in Yiddish is written as
דרײדל
or using Roman characters: dreydl

This app is a simple simulator of the dreidel itself. You can spin the dreidel with a swipe of your finger, or by using two fingers and "spinning" it. When it lands, a popup will appear that shows you what you got and what to do when you're playing the game. There are real sounds of kids playing right along with you!

Happy Chanukah and have some fun!

It's ok...

The animation is nice looking, and the kid voices are fun. However, it would be better if it was actually a game that kept score, etc. All it does is randomly play animations of a spinning dreidel. I think this is more of a tutorial for dreidel playing, especially for older kids. My 8 year old was bored with this. My 3 year old didn't care though, she just liked making it spin.

I can't believe I paid for this.

It spins. It stops. It spins. It stops.

This isn't a game. It doesn't keep track of a score. For all the explaining of the dreidel game there is in the description, it's seems there should be more too this. I felt it was misleading.

Hope the makers improve this app. Otherwise the "nun" is on me.

Awful

Doesn't do a thing. Really no point, it just spins a dreidel, u could buy a dreidel for 10c and I just paid one dollar for a worse experience. Wish I could give 0 stars
