Go Bananas Game Wins September Platinum Egg Award

Platinum Egg Award Winner - Best iPad Games and iPhone GamesThe fact is, you care about finding good games, right? Who cares which indie developer or which company made them? You’re looking for the best iOS games. Well, every month, Big Goose Egg Games issues a Platinum Egg Award that goes to the best up-and-coming iPhone or iPad (or occasionally Android) games. Most often, they are free. And for sure, my kids have to like them. The winner for the month of September is Go Bananas by MoKool Games.

Go Bananas is one of those games that starts out seeming like it is going to be ultra-easy. You are a monkey (no offense) trying to use your sling shot to get bunches of bananas. Pretty simple at first. So, simple, in fact, for a few seconds it had me wondering if I’d ever actually lose. But soon enough, coconut bombs start appearing interspersed between the bunches of bananas. Soon enough, it gets difficult. I found myself playing it again and again.

Go Bananas Monkey Game Wins September 2012 Platinum Egg Award - Best iPhone gameBut what about the kids? (I have six, so there’s plenty of people to test games on) I noticed something interesting… my youngest son had enough early success in the game (the easy part for me and my older children) to want to keep playing. I know many game designers try to find that sweet-spot of giving people enough success to feel good, but not too much to think it’s too easy. Go Bananas has found that sweet-spot. For kids and adults alike. Check it out.

Go Bananas – it’s fun and it’s FREE.
