In a Nutshell
Cover Orange HD is a puzzle game where players drop shapes to manipulate the scenery in order to protect oranges from getting bombarded by hail from a storm cloud.
Players have to slide and release boxes, wheels or barrels to drop them in such a way as to manipulate the scenery to protect oranges from getting bombarded by hail from an oncoming cloud. Points are lost or gained based on the amount of time it takes for players to move the objects in place. The oranges smile when saved, but also quiver with fear as the storm cloud passes over. If touched, they shrivel up with a groan and turn black.
This App is really good for Kids to practice decision making, prediction, and strategy while moving the objects into the right position to protect the oranges, which requires careful planning and occasionally good timing. Cover Orange squeezes some learning about physics and decision making into the fun while kids save cute oranges.

Kids will learn by using their basic understanding of gravity and motion to build the concept of how objects are affected by them. They will also learn by simple trial-and-error, repeating levels again and again until the oranges are safe from the hail. Cover Orange provides no hints, other than a dotted line indicating where the object will drop (or an "x" if it cannot be dropped in a certain spot). The puzzle can be reset to experiment with different approaches, and you can move between puzzles easily.
