I just got a new iPad this week, so naturally one of the first apps I loaded onto it was an American Girl app! American Girl apps only work with iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch), so this is the first time
we've been able to play with it.
McKenna's Gymtastic, like all good apps, is based on a pretty simple concept: McKenna is running on a balance beam (a very long, long balance beam!), and you have to keep her from falling down when she encounters a gap between beams. When you tap the screen, McKenna jumps (actually, she jumps and twists and twirls in mid-air). She has to catch purple stars to get points, and if she falls 3 times, the game is over. The Pea says it's a lot like Ice Runner; easy to learn, surprisingly addictive, and a great way to help pass the time.
