Alphie the Squid Educational App

Many of you may not know this about me, but I am half Japanese raised by my Japanese mom and Grandmother. I have always had a fascination with creatures of the sea and a lot of it was due to the foods I was introduced to at an early age. Our Japanese family enjoyed lots of seafood and my mom and Grandmother would always teach me about the food we ate from the sea. One of my favorite sea creatures has always been the squid. So when I had the chance to review educational app Alphie the Squid on my iPad, I jumped at the chance!


What We Thought About Alphie the Squid

Each of our three children played the app over the course of 4 days. And each one enjoyed it for different reasons.

Our youngest child (4-year-old boy) really enjoyed the challenge of navigating the game. He enjoyed asking me questions about the squids and seeing the habitat they live in. His favorite part was “hypnotizing” the fish while hunting.


Our middle child (6-year-old boy) enjoyed reading the tidbits of information shared throughout the game. He was intrigued by the squid and the app prompted him to do more study on this amazing sea creature. And the beautiful thing about homeschooling is the flexibility we have to add things to our homeschool anytime we see fit. Needless to say, we’ll be creating our own unit study on squids next week!

Our oldest child (12-year-old daughter) enjoyed every aspect of the game. From the storyline (Alphie becomes an orphan and has to learn how to survive) to the graphics and tidbits of knowledge she read when playing the app. She also enjoyed learning about how the squids are able to camouflage themselves and enjoyed playing it out in the app.


All in all this app was a great success in our homeschool.

Taken from the website: Alphie the Squid is a unique ocean exploration game that follows the journey of wide-eyed and cute baby squid as he ventures into the depths of the ocean. Using the natural talents of the legendary giant squids, Alphie hunts, camouflages, and hypnotizes in order to fight sea creatures on a quest to become king of the ocean. Apple featured our game as “New & Noteworthy” in 36 countries.
