Metamorphabet is a beautiful game for iPhones and iPads that will amuse adults, while delighting and educating kids. It takes you on a charming trip through the alphabet, encouraging you to experiment with the touch screen to see what you can discover.
There's an element of a puzzle game in Metamorphabet. There are no instructions - a letter appears and you are free to interact with it as you wish, and then things will happen. After some things have happened, illustrating a word beginning with that letter, you'll be able to access the next one. Each letter is full of beautiful and creative animations.
Fun for adults, safe for kids
Adults will no doubt enjoy the journey, although there is little incentive to play through it twice. However, as an app for kids who enjoy the repetition, Metamorphabet will no doubt entertain for many hours.
Parents can relax in the knowledge Metamorphabet has no in-app purchases or ads. You can access other apps by the developer, but only by going through a parental gate that should be too much for really young kids to break. There's also a reset button, so kids can play Metamorphabet from scratch - after your first play through you are able to play each letter in any order unless you reset the game.
Metamorphabet is a lovely and unusual game that will delight anyone who picks it up.
