Mac Games and More has announced Ladybugs 2 v.1.0, a new release of their kids' game for Mac OS X and iPad. It's available for US$0.99 at the Mac App Store and the Apple App Store.
Here's how the game is described: "Ladybugs 2 engages very small children with colorful images and interactive puzzles. The app, designed for easy game play, facilitates color recognition, hand-eye coordination and more. In this game for iPad and Mac, kids race against other ladybugs, frolic around garden mazes, rescue baby ladybugs and help ladybugs safely find the right color house and avoid cloudy days.
"There are five different activities in the game: 1) Tangled Maze: Guide your ladybug through a maze and find the exit; 2) Color Trouble: Bring the ladybug to its matching color home; 3) Ladybug Race: Race against a blue ladybug; 4) Baby Game: Pick up a baby ladybug and together return home; 5) Cloud Game: Find your way home and avoid the clouds above you.
"Since it is designed for small children, the function to return to the main menu, located at the top right portion of the screen, works differently than most other games. In Ladybugs 2, the button must be pressed for approximately three seconds in order to return to the main menu to choose another game, or to quit the game. This method was incorporated so that a child will not accidentally leave his/her game by unintentionally touching (on the iPad) or clicking (on a Mac) this button."
