Animal Hide and Seek is a game designed for children available on the iPhone. The player is presented with various scenes in which animals are hiding divided into three “chapters” including distinct scenes for circus, jungle, and underwater. The player must tap on each one until all five are found in each scene. The game contains a total of twelve scenes, fifteen animals, and numerous sound effects, movies, and other assets. This game uses the Cocos2D for iPhone framework extensively.
