Prize Claw Halloween
Prize Claw Halloween (free) by Game Circus
If your kid is into those prize claw machines that never spit out actual prizes, get this app and tell Junior to shut his hole.
Ok that’s a little mean, don’t do that! But do try to amuse him/her/it with this app because (a) this prize claw rarely drops anything, (b) it’s free, and (c) it’s very Halloween-themed which I hear children are really into this time of year.
Prize Claw Halloween is far from perfect. In fact, it’s kind of a visual nightmare, but it does do a pretty good job of making a game out of methodically and repeatedly retrieving virtual junk from the prize box. There are puzzle pieces that can be picked up to complete a picture, there are powerups, there are objectives, this thing could really keep the offspring busy.
One thing to watch out for, though, is that said offspring might start buying in-app items without you knowing so keep an eye on the action if you’re watching your iTunes budget.
