I remember when we first got DSTV (not just Mnet). I switched between MTV and Cartoon Network. I fell in love with Cow & Chicken and Johnny Bravo. No more only watching cartoons when KTV came on (15.00-17.00), you could watch cartoons all the time.
Every now and then I go back and wonder WTF kind of cartoons kids these days watch (kind of like my parents probably did when I watched Cow & Chicken), but I love Regular Show with Mordecai and Rigby and know that Ben 10 is so popular in Africa that the rebooted series was released here before America and Ben 10 refers to an older woman’s younger lover.
Keeping up with the times, Cartoon Network has released the Cartoon Network Anything app where anything goes. Think mini games, puzzles and videos and hours of entertainment. I opened up the app wondering what to expect, and was still playing an hour later. It’s addictive but in a good way, kind of like Dumb Ways To Die.
What’s to love
Short games, puzzles, videos and quizzes
Games like spot the difference, erasing (reverse colouring in), fighting all set against a timer
Awesome characters – even if you don’t know who they are what’s not to love about a panda, polar and brown bear?
Who is this game for?
It really is fun for everyone – play with your gran, parents, siblings, young kids or teens. All ages will find it fun. The simplicity makes it appealing and the timed games will ensure that there is no fighting. Like Oprah, everyone will get one.
What’s not so awesome
Depending on your interweb connection, it could take a while to load
WATCH: Check out my first Twitch-like app video to see how truly terrible I am at games but how much I thoroughly enjoy playing them. You can also find out what to expect from the app.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
