If you like playing mini games on a tablet, but miss the family interaction you get with bird games, ten the FlashPad Infinite is the perfect in-between platform.
The FlashPad is a small mobile electronic LED touchscreen featuring seventeen different modes - although not all of them are games. Two are designed specifically for two players, while as the others can be played either solitary or with as many people as you like, taking turns.
The first of these modes is called 'Light Show'. It is not a game, but a light display. Although not much appeal to older players, children (particularly those who are autistic) will enjoy the stimulating colours lighting up.
There are two other non-game modes that allow you to make music.'Music Me' and 'Do-Re-Me' are very similar; in the first you have to tap the buttons that light up in order to create a familiar tune, such as Mary Had a Little Lamb. The second is a free play mode, where you can make your own sounds and rhythms.
There are three games you will recognise as variations of popular family games. These include 'Connect Me' (similar to Connect 4), 'Tic-Tac-Toe' (Noughts and Crosses), and Twist Me (Twister).
Other games test your memory, dexterity, hand-eye coordination, speed, and accuracy. For example, in 'Remember Me' you have to remember the given light sequence, whereas in 'Chase Me' you have to tap the correct colour lights within the time limit.
When reading the instructions manual you will find that the grammar is very poor. This game was made in Hong Kong, and clearly written by someone for whom English is a second language. The publishers should really have proof read the manual before distribution. Despite this, the FlashPad Infinite is so easy to learn and get a hang of that the confusing instructions in the manual aren't much of a hinderance.
The FlashPad Infinite is a highly addictive game suitable for all ages, and can bring family and friends together.
