Highly Commended Best Games App 2012: Kinectimals
For the child who wants to become a lion-tamer, there's no longer any need to run away to the circus. Just invest in Kinectimals instead…
Following in the fine tradition of games that encourage caring for your pet (from Tamagotchi to Nintendogs), Kinectimals gives your child the chance to adopt a tiger cub, teach him tricks, from sitting to skipping (and feel pretty awful when the rope trips him up), then give him a tickle under the chin. It's up to your child to make sure her pet is well-loved, fed and watered – and of course that he gets lots of playful exercise. Your child can win points to help her cub move to the next level, mastering plenty of skills along the way. Great graphics and super-cute little creatures make this a real winner for those with an animal bent.
Kinecticals for Windows phone from £2.29. Also available for XBox Kinect.
