Onto the Game
I sat with my son while I played, as we had never played before and not realising that Anya has a microphone that records what you say, we were in hysterics when we pressed play and started chatting about the game and then all of a sudden Anya started repeating everything we had just said, we were in fits of laughter for ages.
Touch Anya's hair and she says "Don't mess up my hair" and looks sad.
Tickle Anya and she says "That tickles".
Touch her shoes and she will dance the Macarena for you.
Touch her nose and she sneezes.
Touch her eyes she pulls a funny face.
You can give Anya a heart and she says "I love you" but if you click to break the heart she cries and tells you "That makes me sad".
So if you want to cheer Anya up, give her a cupcake and she says "Yummy in my tummy" or even a strawberry prompting her to say "Please can I have some more, Strawberries and yummier and healthier than cupcakes".
Haven't played with Anya for a while, you will hear "I'm bored" or "Your not playing with me".
Focusing on the FREE version you get all that I have mentioned above plus
2 hairstyles to try
Lots of different hair colors
2 dresses to change into
1 pair of glasses
Blow bubbles game
Recording with microphone
Ability to play with a friend on another device
Our favourite part and also bringing out our competitive streak was the blowing bubbles game. Anya blows the bubbles and in the time allowed you have to try and burst as many as you can. At the moment I am slightly in the lead having popped 171 bubbles.
For creative types you can even take a picture with Anya and are given four themes to chose from as your border.
Simply by sharing on Facebook you can gain more free content.
We both thought that playing with Anya was loads of fun and I could see that it is a great way to improve hand eye co-ordination. The graphics are extremely eye catching, clear and bright with lots of colour to grab your child's attention. The different sayings and options will keep little ones (and big ones!!) entertained for quite some time, definitely a family friendly game. If I had little ones I would definitely choose to unlock all the items purely down to the fact that you get all the different themed costumes to dress her up in even a fairy or princess and of course the puppies!!
The only other thing my son thought that would have made it an even better experience was to be able to direct Anya around the room/screen. I did wonder if it was possible to unlock certain items by increasing levels or playing more.
Definitely a game that we would recommend testing out, after all it is a free app.
