Today's Free App of the Day is Color Sheep
The reviews indicate though the icon has a high "cute" factor, it's not really for young kids. I think kids who are good at quick arcade style games would be able to handle it. There's not much storyline, though. I played a couple rounds, not long enough to get any of the powerups. I'll play with it some more to see if I can get a higher score. On a tablet, it benefits from being on a surface for tapping the buttons.
From the product page:
Hordes of vicious wolves have emerged from the mouth of Wolfcano to steal life and color from the world. Now the Knight of Light, Sir Woolson, must ready his color-changing fleece and magical powers as the last defense against the darkness!
Color Sheep is a fast-paced arcade game in which players change Woolson’s color to match oncoming wolves by mixing different intensities of red, green, and blue light. An intuitive swipe-based interface makes forming combos a breeze. When Woolson is charged, tap him to release an incinerating laser blast! Magical items dropped by enemies summon fantastical nature spells to protect Woolson and smite the evil lupine invaders. With adaptive difficulty, over twenty color combinations to master, and Facebook integrated leaderboards, Color Sheep is easy to learn but hard to put down!
Note: Color Sheep requires players to perceive a wide range of colors and is not recommended for those with color blindness.
