As a mom to a preteen one thing I have learned (and quite quickly I might add) is that gone are the long days of summer waiting for friends and playing outside and these are the days of digital entertainment and apps. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of fun and useful apps and I do think that they help to limit everyday boredom. I even enjoy playing them from time to time!
There are lots of apps on the market and with all the hype around some of them, it’s hard to find the right ones that are for you and your family. I admit that I don’t play many app games, but the ones I do I want to be challenging and keep me entertained, without having to be on the go constantly.
Talking Tom and Friends have been a fun and engaging app that launched over 5 years ago and just hit the milestone of 4.5 billions downloads. Yes friends, that was 4.5 billion. To capalize on the craze, they franschise has created a new app: Talking Tom Gold Rush! And it is a lot of fun!
Talking Tom Gold Rush (which you can download for free here!) is all about Tom and his friends chasing a bank robber and retrieving his gold. Each bar of gold that is collected can is then used to build their houses for some added incentive. I have had the honor of playing the game, along with my 11 year old and we both love it! You don’t have to actually run (which I was skeptical about) and every one gets more challenging so you have to be on your game. You can connect with friends to compete for high score or simply compete against yourself. It’s simple yet exciting all at once.
And if my daughter likes it then I know it will be a hit! Did I mention you can download it for free right now! Download it here and have some fun yourself! I bet you enjoy it as much as we have. I want to know what you think! Download the app and play for a bit and then come back and tell me about it. It’s a good game and good for family fun as well so you can share with the whole gang!
