Alien Monster Mix and Match for iPhone review

£1 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Jackson Fish

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

Alien Monster Mix and Match is a simple, fun educational matching iPhone game for kids or very bored adults.

Alien Monster Mix and Match is a simple, fun educational matching game for kids or very bored adults.

There are three spin dials of mixed up sections of friendly looking, colourful alien faces – no nightmares after playing. Spin the dials to match the face parts and make an alien. You get a cheery “Hooray!”, occasionally a simple video of a hippo holding balloons or a monkey with a cupcake hat.

It’s very simple – maybe so simple that really it’s for very young toddlers or a 5-minute time filler for under fives. There are 11 faces to match.

My (just) four-year-old daughter loved it and played for some time.

She especially liked the shake to spin the dials for the next turn, and the congratulatory cheering.

(This works just great on the iPhone, but the iPad version of Alien Monster Mix and Match requires a child to use both hands and while it wasn’t dashed to pieces on the wall I wasn’t sufficiently confident to not be at her side throughout her play.)

  • Disney Universe review

    Disney Universe

    While it borrows liberally from the LEGO games, Disney Universe's brand of co-op-focused flair puts its own personality-packed spin on the fun-for-all-ages formula.

    Rise of Nightmares

    This grindhouse gore-fest may be generic schlock, but the unique control scheme will pave the way for more interesting gaming fare in the near future.
