This adventurous, educational, and completely relaxing app has been brought to you by Alphie The Squid….

alphie the squidIn my home, the iPad is king. My husband, my son, and I, all have our own iPads. My husband and son have the iPad Mini and I have the iPad 4. My son uses his a LOT. Needless to say, we are always on the lookout for good apps.

We like educational and/or kid-friendly games for our son. So when I was asked to review the new app ‘Alphie The Squid’ I was on it like jam on toast.

An app that’s both fun and educational is just a cherry on the top.

Alphie The Squid is an ocean exploration game that follows the journey (or more accurately you take Alphie on a journey) of the adorable Alphie… a wide-eyed squid.

You do have to be careful or Alphie will become fish food as you swim through the levels eating along the way to stay healthy and strong while discovering new ocean life along the way. Alphie has lost his mother and he needs you to help him survive.

Check out this video:

My son is enjoying playing ‘Alphie The Squid’, exploring the ocean and actually learning some things about squids and other oceanic creatures that he didn’t already know. Yay.

Something I wasn’t expecting, was to find the game so relaxing. Yes, relaxing. From the beautiful imagery to the soothing music, ‘Alphie’ can take your stressed-filled day and breath a sense of calm into it.

When you play Alphie The Squid, I highly recommend you have the sound on and up. So if you’re playing somewhere you don’t want to bother others, wear headphones.

This app truly needs sound. Trust me!

I do love that a wide range of ages would enjoy this app. My son is ten and he wasn’t bored with it, and as I said, even learned something. He says, “Young kids would like it, too.”  Like he’s so old.
