Sounds of the Animal Kingdom is an educational Windows Phone game designed to use sounds and animations to teach children about animals.
Sounds of the Animal Kingdom has a simple interface that is well designed for children to navigate around and plenty of opportunities for parent/child interaction. It may not be a Windows Phone game suited for everyone but I can see it being a fun educational game for childhood development but also an entertaining way for them to pass the time.

We're casting our ID@Xbox spotlight into outer space this week, joining Asteroid Base for a look at their co-op space extravaganza 'Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime', coming soon to Xbox One.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is all about guiding a huge ship through vibrant two-dimensional worlds infested with dangerous space monsters. If the swarms of neon nasties weren't enough for you, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime forces players to choose which ship controls to utilize one at a time. You and your co-op (or AI) partner will have to switch diligently between manning engines, guns, shields, and other upgradable gizmos in order to survive.
I caught up with indie video game outfit Asteroid Base to discuss Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, their inspirations, space battles, boss fights, working with ID@Xbox and much more!
