It is wonderful to see classic board games be redesigned into apps for iPad by iOS developers. We’ve discovered another one of these gems that was just released on the app store called Persuasion Game. The Persuasion Game is a universal app that is fun to play and that we found captivating from moment we tapped to open it on my iPad 2.
We don’t review a lot of game apps for iPad but found this one to be unlike anything we’ve seen in this app store category. The premise of the game is fun especially since it involves self-discovery, which if we’ll be honest, is a favorite human pursuit. The Persuasion Game app is simple to learn and even comes with a “how to play” tab on the opening screen of this universal app. (screenshots below the break)

A Finish app development startup has launched an interesting iPad 2 app that is a game and learning tool for guitar. This iPad tablet app, called WildChords lets you learn guitar while interacting in a game-like atmosphere. This iPad 2 app recognizes the chords you play on your guitar and in essence your guitar becomes your game controller with this innovative iPad audio technology. The gist of the game is that you are surrounded by all types of exotic animals that have escaped from the local zoo. Your goal in this iPad game is to return the animals to the zoo by hypnotizing each animal with the strum of different chords on your guitar. Each of the animals will respond to a real-life chord, for example, ducks will follow you if you play in the chord “D”, elephants will be attracted to the “E” chord. You get the idea. When you correctly play the chords you become the hero and save the village from the wild escaped zoo animals. The animation and graphics alone will likely make this iPad tablet app an international hit for the beginning guitarists. This may be one of the best iPad 2 apps for learning basic guitar to arrive this year. We found a nice demo of the Wildchords app on Youtube (below) from Intomobile that shows how cool this app will be. As of yet it is not on the U.S. app store so we’ll update this post as soon as it hits the store along with pricing news.
As we reviewed this iPad app game that was released on the app store in June one strength stood out to us. The color animated graphics are really good! We even tested this out on our 2 year old daughter and it was too difficult for her but she was engaged by all the colorful images. We found this game experience to be fun and I got a little obsessive with it as it should be with any iPad app game. If you like challenging and fun puzzle games then you should give this one a try. The Penguin characters are a nice touch and we found that it did was challenging to navigate all the mazes and pesky obstacles. This iPad app game is also integrated into the Game Center so you can play with friends around the globe. There a lots of wacky achievements to earn and brag about to friends in the Game Center! There are 75 levels to explore so you’ll not run out of puzzles any time soon. The lite version is free on the iTunes app store by clicking here.
