Keep your kids entertained by having them follow Millie the dog on a wild adventure in search of the lost key to endless bacon in Megapops' interactive storybook, Millie & The Lost Key.

Your chicken is constantly hopping on bales of hay, but it's your job to control his direction by tilting your iDevice. You can also tap on the screen while in the air to get a little boost. You'll want to collect feed, vegetables, and power-up eggs to aid you in your journey. The game includes a variety of special items, loads of missions to complete, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Of course, you can't learn how to play piano in a single day, so the app keeps track of your progress and allows you to mark lessons as favorites for quick access later on. You can also download individual lessons to your iDevice in case you find yourself without an internet connection.

You can cause your dolphin to dive by tapping and holding on the screen, and then release at just the right moment to climb the waves and fly through the air to collect treasures. Just watch out when diving deep into the sea, because there are vicious creatures like sharks, jellyfish, and puffer fish just waiting to attack. The game includes five worlds, objectives to complete, 14 skins to collect, and leaderboards and achievements via Game Center.

Lil Flippers is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

Crazy Cubes ($0.99 -> Free, 6.9 MB): A puzzle game that requires you to roll a cube around 96 levels with the goal of removing all of the green platforms.
