Top 5 iPhone Games for Kids

Best ways to entertain the younger generation on iPhone

While it's true that video games get a lot of unnecessary flak for their supposedly damaging effects on impressionable, wide-eyed youths, there's no getting around the fact that some games simply aren't suitable for children.

However liberal a parent or cool an uncle you might be, buzzsawing a pedestrian's heads off while simultaneously repainting a digital wall with some poor soul's virtual brains is not a practice your young son / daughter / niece / nephew should be participating in.

Being the responsible types that we are, the Qi team has scoured the charts with a single child-friendly question in mind: what are the Top 5 iPhone games for kids?

And, before you ask, yes, we did find a Harry Potter game.

This colourful cartoon offering is just the thing to get the young 'uns thinking laterally. Guiding the cutesy Mokis to their destination requires a good grasp of physics (well, video game physics) and a degree of imagination - the perfect food for hungry young minds.

As fun for kids as it is for adults, air hockey never really gets old. This mobile translation from Acceleroto does a great job of conveying the fast-paced thrill of thwacking a plastic disc over a cushion of air and into your opponent's slot. Just remember to give the kid a go.

Recapturing the essence of classic puzzle-platformers like Bubble Bobble, this handsomely drawn caper pits you against an adorable brood of cuddly critters. Good clean fun for all the family. Probably a good idea to have a couple of muffins on standby, though. Suggestion is a powerful thing.
