What parents need to know

Ease of play

Reeling in a fish requires some hand-eye coordination to keep the rod taut. Younger kids will enjoy simply splashing the water, feeding the fish, or playing with the frogs and lily pads.

Violence & scariness

If a player taps a dragonfly, it falls into the water dead.

QUALITY
 

iFISH POND HD turns the iPad into a fishing rod that casts, hooks, and reels in the fish that are swimming in a simulated pond. There are only three kinds of fish to hook and the rod controls are a bit finicky, but the pond is livened up by interactive lily pads, frogs, and dragonflies, plus realistic water movement and ambient nature sounds. Three unlockable bonuses based on the number of fish caught provide an incentive to keep fishing.
