Halos Fun – What’s More Fun Than Flinging Oranges? (iOS App Review)

halosfun_iconLooking for a free kid safe game that doesn’t contain any in-app purchasing or ads?Check out Halos Fun from PikPok. PikPOk is a name that pops up here quite often as they’ve made such acclaimed games as Into the Dead, Giant Boulder of Death, Robot Unicorn Attack 2, and Super Monsters Ate my Condo just to name a few. As great as those games where, they weren’t completely what I’d call children friendly. With Halos Fun, they’ve created a game that is not only 100% kid safe, but one that is free with no strings attached.

Now lets get down to what’s most important when it comes to kids games and that’s fun. If a game isn’t fun, they’re not going to play it. In Halos Fun’s case, they can justify using that word in the title. The game itself, at least to me, seems like a cross between something like Angry Birds and Peggle. You launch oranges with a slingshot, similar to Angry Birds, but instead of “killing” pigs, you collect rings to complete the level. Collect all the rings to win. The part of the game that is similar to Peggle is that there are pegs scattered around that you can bounce off of, but they will break when you hit them.

What’s neat about the game though is that since it is a kids game, they don’t put pressure on the kids to try and complete the levels with a limited number of oranges. Instead, they can use as many oranges as they like to collect all rings and pass each level. There are challenges however associated with each level based on how many oranges you use, but they are optional.

Of course as fun as the gameplay is, it also helps that Halos Fun is a graphically good looking game. The art is very bright, colorful, and fun to look at. The audio in the game is also very good and very uplifting and fun as well. Overall, Halos Fun is a great kids game. It’s a game they can play for fun without feeling stressed. I like the fact that there are zero ads in it and no in-app purchases. It’s amazing that this game is free as I’d easily pay for it if it weren’t.
