Jeu du loup

Jeu du loup, 3.59 Euros = $3.80

This is another app that I just don't "get".

To start off with, it took me forever to figure out how to play this game in French. Even when you order from the French iTunes page, you get the English version (The Wolf Game). You need to go into your iPad settings > General > Scroll down to "International" > Language > French. This is a pain to do and takes a while for the iPad to set up the new language. Of course, now all of your iPad settings are in French so you have to switch it back to English when you are finished playing the game.

Another annoying thing about this app is that it doesn't want to seem to play in a landscape orientation if you are using Reflector App to show your iPad screen to the class:

This is a game against "Le loup". On the first screen, you choose the number of players and your colours:

When you start to play, you touch the button in the middle of the screen which causes it to spin with many images on it. You touch it again to stop it. Then you drag the image into your basket:

Every now and then when you click the spinning button, the wolf will appear:

This is the only time that you will hear any vocabulary, as the wolf says "Je mets mon chapeau" and you put it on his head.

The goal of the game is to fill your basket before the wolf gets dressed.

Yes, that's it, folks. Kinda dumb, zero educational value. Maybe fun for little kids.

Below is a video of the game (sideways!):

My rating: 2 out of 5 stars.
