Review Excerpt: Here’s a solid addition to your children’s App collection on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Created for Highlights, Inc. by Mobad Games (www.mobadgames.com) the $1.99 app contains eight seek-and-find puzzles based on the original puzzles that have appeared in the print version of the magazine, starting in 1946.
Highlights Hidden Pictures (www.highlights.com/iphone) starts by introducing each hidden picture, one at a time, along with a coloring book-like scene with titles such as “Best Friends,” “On the Farm,” or “Pigs Pizzeria.” Children as young as three can touch to find the dozen or so hidden items, or pull in for a closer inspection to find a hidden hammer, cane or banana. Each correct find is filled in with color, while random jabs result in a bonk on the cowbell. Get stuck? A hint feature circles the area where an item might be found. When all the pictures are identified, you are rewarded with a shower of confetti and see the entire picture, colored in. The main menu remembers which puzzles you’ve already solved and it is also possible to replay a puzzle at any time.
