Rio 2 (The Official App for the Movie) Review (Cupcake Digital)

Rio 2 (The Official App for the Movie)
What It Is

Rio 2 (The Official App for the Movie) gives Rio 2 fans five ways to play. The digital storybook re-tells the plot of the movie. Kids can choose to have the story narrated or read the story themselves. (Turning off the narration also turns off the music and sound effects.) The second activity is a digital coloring book that lets kids use different digital paint tools and colors to color in and decorate favorite Rio 2 characters or create their own digital drawings. Kids' creations can be saved to your device's photo gallery. Kids can also play three games. In Sky Soccer, players help Blu score goals throughout nine rounds of play. In Whack a Monkey, quickly tap on a monkey if you see one pop up, but don't tap on Luiz the bulldog or you'll lose bananas. And in Fruit Crusher, launch tropical fruits to match three or more fruits and score points.

Is It Fun?

Fans of the movie Rio 2 will like that there are so many different ways to play with this app. From the book and coloring pages to the addictive skill-and-action games, this app engages kids in lots of imaginative and creative play.
