Ooh look what Tinybop have gone and done now. Tinybop make fantastic apps for creative and techie kids. Today they have released Infinite Arcade which allows kids to customize retro-style games to make their own creations. Think level-editor rather than coding, Infinite Arcade is aimed at 6-8 year old's.
Tinybop have managed to capture the feel of 80s video games in an app that will definitely appeal to modern kids. I love the article the developers have written about the retro games that inspired them, I read it with a smile on my face, Day of the Tentacle, Breakout, Bust-a-move, Populus, Myst, Marble Madness.
I know what my 7 year old and I will be doing at the weekend if it rains :-) It's a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK, of course it will rain.
If you haven't checked out Tinybop's Everything Machine then do that too. Awesome. One of our favourite apps ever.
