The lively sailor Fiete has gone on all kinds of adventures, from participating in the Summer Games to building entire worlds of cars. Now, he's back for more fun and games in his new app, Fiete Hide and Seek.
Fiete Hide and Seek
Fiete Hide and Seek is simple to play. When kids start the game, they will be taken to a randomly generated landscape filled with rocks, trees, animals, and more. Their goal is to find Fiete, who is hiding somewhere within the scene. Using their finger, they tap or drag objects to see what's hiding behind them. Once kids have found Fiete, they can move on to the next level.
If kids can't seem to find Fiete, they can tap the hint button on the bottom right. A puppy will then run into the scene to point out his whereabouts. Tapping the hint button a second time will send a big dog running in to force Fiete out of his hiding place.
Other than Fiete, kids can discover over 40 cute animals including foxes, tigers, elephants, raccoons, birds, and more. Kids can also find various plants depending on the scenery, such as shrubs in the desert or trees in the forests.
Parents Need to Know
Fiete Hide and Seek is suitable for ages five and under. There is no text in the app, so reading is not required to play. The gameplay is also intuitive that most kids will be able to figure out what to do on their own.
The app has no third-party ads and no in-app purchases. There are links to the developer's other apps on the App Store, but these are secured behind a parental gate. You don't need an Internet connection to use the app.
Things I Like
Fiete Hide and Seek is a simple app, but it's surprisingly engaging. Even though the gameplay requires very little skill, there is a lot of fun to be had in exploring the beautiful sceneries and discovering the surprises hidden in each scene. Younger kids will love this app best, but even grown-ups like me can't help but admire the beautiful visuals and charming details.
I love how the sceneries are randomly generated every time. I also found that the difficulty level ramps up after some time, with scenes containing more objects for Fiete to hide behind. Both of these things help make the gameplay more exciting and extends the app's shelf life.
Fiete Hide and Seek is a charming peekaboo game that will delight young kids. As kids play, they can explore beautiful landscapes to discover hidden surprises. Because the levels are randomly generated, kids can always find something new every time they play. The app is also a great way to introduce kids to 40 unique animals.
