The official LOGO board game app, free on both iPhone and iPad

You may remember that a while ago, we reviewed (and loved) Drumond Park's family-friendly game called Logo Who Am I? Well, if you're a fan of the game (or even if you've yet to discover it), you'll be pleased to know that they have turned the game into a fun app. Even better news, it's totally free.

The LOGO app is broken down into seven convenient, bite-sized question types – Reveal, Blur, Tilt, Grid, Shape, Trivia and Colour – and twelve increasingly challenging levels of play. Each level contains 20 questions which must be completed within a particular time, and once complete the next level is then unlocked. Each level uses a mix of the question types, involving more than 1,100 questions with almost 300 images in total.

As you work your way through each level of the games you can check progress on the levels screen, where successfully completed levels are highlighted in green alongside your best recorded time. Incomplete levels are in red – and you can also go back and try already completed levels again to improve your scores, at any time.

The seven question types offer an exciting array of challenges with each round – and in every case, you type the answer from the letters appearing at the bottom of the screen before the timer runs out. For Reveal, you rub the screen with a finger to gradually expose the image hidden beneath; you watch the screen with Blur as a well-known image slowly comes into focus; and in Tilt it’s a simple tilt of the screen to move the circle around - to reveal an image hidden beneath.

Grid allows you to select a square from the grid to reveal part of an image. Extra squares can be revealed, but there is a 10 second penalty for each. With Shape you try to guess an image from just its outline before the timer runs out; Trivia allows you to select the correct answer from the multiple choices given; and finally, Colour presents you with a black and white image of a well-known logo or packaging, with part of the design flashing grey. Here, you need to correctly identify the colour of the flashing part from the palette below.

 ‘The official LOGO board game app’, for both iPhone and iPad devices, is available to download from 1st October on the iTunes App Store list, completely FREE until 31st December 2013.

Sophie has become addicted to a variety of free apps that ask you to name famous brands, including Hi Guess the Food and Icon Pop Brand. The trouble with those ones is that they are predominantly American brands, many of which are totally unknown in Europe, so the LOGO app will be a great alternative.
