Great beginners' physics puzzler, but not really free.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The tutorial instructions work quite well in terms of teaching kids how to use the tools and controls in the game. All 20 free levels are quite easy (you basically need to do what the tutorial lesson just showed you how to do), but if you purchase the additional levels, you'll have to work your brain a lot more.

The free game offers 20 levels, all of which are basically tutorial. In order to play the more challenging levels, you need to buy the "Full Story Edition," which is $.99.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Milk and Coffee is a cute, kid-friendly puzzle game that can teach a few physics lessons along the way. On each level, kids must place tools like balloons, tacks (to pop the balloons), motion arrows, and air-blowing fans in order to guide Coffee the cat to his feline friend, Milk. Be aware, though, that only the first 20 levels are free -- and those are basically all tutorial. Kids who play those free levels will likely be excited by them and eager to take on the tougher levels; the full version is $.99. This app allows players to connect to both Game Center and OpenFeint, two online gaming communities.

QUALITY

MILK AND COFFEE is a great way to introduce kids to physics-based puzzle games. It's relatively simple (compared to other games in the genre), cute, and colorfully cartoony, and it's got a clear and thorough tutorial. The only unfortunate aspect here is that the tutorial is basically all you get for free. Granted, it's 20 levels, which sounds like a lot, but they are very easy and pass by in a flash. Once you've learned the ropes, you'll probably want to put your newly learned skills to the test -- and that requires buying the full version. Realistically, what you get here is a free sample of a $.99 app. And if you think of it that way, you won't be disappointed.
