What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Scoop Shoppe is a simple game in which kids assemble ice-cream cones to match a given target. Apart from a small optional link to enter an email address, the game is safe for any age.
Is it any good?
SCOOP SHOPPE is a fun little game that's suitable for almost any age. Cartoon animals come to the ice-cream counter and ask for a particular ice-cream cone, shown as a picture. The player taps on the cone, ice cream, and toppings to build up the cone. As cones are made correctly, new ingredients are added to the tray to make things more challenging, but a mistake resets the game back to the original six ingredients. The game keeps count of how many correct cones you make in a row, but doesn't have a high score tracker. The illustrations are cute and the game is simple enough for very young children to figure out. However, there are some combinations that are particularly hard to see. For example, on a chocolate ice cream with fudge sauce and sprinkles it's easy to miss the fudge sauce, resetting your score back to zero. Overall, the game is cute and pretty entertaining.
