Duckie Deck Card Wars is one you will certainly want to have in your bag of tricks! Card Wars is simply a deck of cards on your iPhone or iPad. As you start the game within the app, the screen is divided so that each player can sit on one side of the device. Tap to play your card and swipe to collect your cards. As in the game of “war,” the app prompts you to lay additional cards to see who is the winner of “war.” The app is simple, yet engaging enough to keep kids’ attention. KinderTown likes how the app can be played with another person. Have your child play it with a grandparent, cousin or friend! In the game children are comparing the values of the numbers that appear on the played cards.
The app could improve by including an automatic or a “versus” the computer option for those moments when two people are not available. KinderTown would also suggest a home button to exit the game at any time, and fun options such as choosing the type of cards you use, different music options or changing the color of the background, the little things that kids love! There are no in-app advertisements or in-app purchases, which makes this a great choice for children. The app is $2.99 and appropriate for children ages 4-8. Overall, this is a great addition to your iPhone or iPad.
