Poki Review & Fire Tablet Giveaway!

Ever since the monkeys have owned their own iPad Mini's last Christmas, they have frequently asked for new games to play on them. Of course Football ones are the most popular with them. We usually use apps with parental controls on the iPad and have put the settings in place to stop them making in app purchases. However just recently I discovered Poki whilst browsing Safari. Poki is a cross-platform free game website. An online play arena with thousands and thousands of world wide users. 

Poki's mission is to become the ultimate online playground by creating engaging entertainment for their users. The adverts are in place to give free games to users. Both adults and children can play. The adverts on the site need to be screened if Children are playing I would guess.

Poki offers games in many categories including:

New Games
Highest Rating Games
Arcade Games
Educational Games
2 Player Games
Football Games...........

The list goes on and on!
We've been trying the 2 player game Heads Arena: Soccer All Stars Game seeing as the monkeys are such huge football fans and like to play together. They play, watch and talk football ALL the time!

One of Poki's most played games it has fun colourful graphics and is easy to navigate. Even I could play it (and I'm no good at these things at all usually)! 
Firstly you need to select a mode. In tournament mode you can either play solo or 2v2 in a co-op. Then play against the clock and when a goal is scored graphics appear on screen. 
There's a half time and the games run through the full 90 minutes (albeit sped up). Audio (just like with a real match) help to make the game realistic! 
Once the game is over you can move onto the next one in the tournament and play until you wish to stop. 

There's also Party Mode which means there are four types of game play: Solo, 1v1, 2v2 and 2v2 co-op. You choose which one you want to play, the county in 1v1 and then the player before playing as like before, with the game in tournament mode.

I would only allow my two to play on an online website if sat directly with them and actually playing the game with them but can see how the games on Poki are so popular. There are so many I personally would find it hard to choose which to ones play. I'm sure the monkeys wouldn't have any trouble picking though! 

We limit how much time the monkeys play games on their iPads and are grateful that they are very active and play football for real! With a good balance of indoor play, outdoor play (and exercise) they do enjoy their games/video watching and some learning online or via apps. Poki will no doubt be used more and more as they get older and the good thing about it, is that it's multi platform. 

We've teamed up with Poki to offer one reader a Fire Tablet, 7" Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB (Black) meaning someone will have another platform to play games with Poki (or whoever they chose). Click the link to read a detailed description of what a Fire Tablet offers.
