iPhones and iPad are instruments for the entire family, and although you might not believe us, you can find some really cool apps for the youngest members of the household that will allow you to have a good time and learn totally free of charge. That's the case of Talking Ben the Dog, a game about a dog that's really a retired chemistry professor. Yes, just like those grumpy old teachers you had at school.
Since it's a game for children it comes along with a series of controls to implement the child mode so that our kids can play safely. Furthermore, the interface is quite simple, specially designed for little'ns, who will definitely smile when they see it. It's so funny that you can even record it on video to share it on your favorite social networks.
How to play
Playing with Talking Ben the Dog is quite simple: you'll see Ben busy reading the newspaper but as you're a bit mischievous you'll try to annoy him to draw his attention. In fact, that the only way he'll pay you some notice. However, getting him away from his reading has its own trick, and you'll have to develop your own newspaper method for such purpose.
Once you manage to get him looking, you can start long and boring conversations in which he'll repeat what you'll say (remember that he's a dog), call him on the phone, feed him, tickle his belly or ears, because although he's a teacher, he's still a dog.
Just like any retired professor, returning to the chemistry lab to do experiments will excite him. The truth is that the game is plenty of fun: try pouring different liquids into the test tubes and create surprising chemical reactions to cause tornados, create plants...
