I have run into this situation quite a few times and I am not even a parent. One of my cousins will find my cool looking BlackBerry sitting on a coffee table and want to play with it. I can see why not everybody would try to encourage such behavior but I believe BlackBerry education can start at a young age…
I tend to usually fire up BrickBreaker or Chuzzle for them since that is about the easiest game available for the BlackBerry. Usually even those are a bit over their head. ToySoft let me know that they have just released the classic GoFish game for the BlackBerry Storm which seems to fit this category perfectly especially when it is currently on sale for 99 cents. Not to mention the nostalgia of playing GoFish after years of deprivation. The game is pretty fun even though the graphics look circa 1990s. They do have a trial available if you want to give it a shot OTA at this link or you can pick it up in the store for $2.99 (on sale now for $0.99 until May 31st).
From the description:
GoFish is a memory game yet challenging and rewarding. The goal is to match 2 cards that are the same from the deck of 32 cards. Each time you match a pair a portion of the picture is revealed. The goal is to remove all the cards in as few moves and quickest time as possible. GoFish is the perfect game to teach your kids and keep them entertained for hours. Note: Sound will work on Storm OS v220.127.116.11 and v4.7.076
