Learn fun science principles with a carnival game theme with the cute characters from Max and Ruby. In Water Blast, connect water pipes as Ruby guides you to learn about the properties of water and how temperature can affect it. Or learn the position and motion of objects with simple puzzles in Ball-O-Rama, playing with force and trajectory on different surfaces as your child pulls balls to make it into a desired hole. Each level is timed and can be seen in the green bar in the upper right corner. The faster the puzzles are done, the more stars earned. Completing the levels also rewards your child with items that can be used

The games were very simple to learn and needed little explanation. The levels were colorful and the controls worked pretty well, even on the Ball-O-Rama which was great since the game relies on accuracy and is sensitive to how far the ball is pulled. My six-year-old son also tried the game. He enjoyed playing it and needed no explanation on how to play. He especially liked earning the rewards for the Make Believe scenes. The rewards kept him motivated to keep on playing. I enjoyed all the parental features and settings. Especially the i Learn integration that allows you to keep track of your child’s learning.

Max and Ruby Science Education Games comes with 5 levels for free. If you like it you can purchase the rest for only $2.99. The lessons are great and the games are fun. Not much more a parent can ask for. It is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
