The Coding Monkeys dance the ChaChaCha

TheCodingMonkeys — the independent game studio behind Lost Cities and Carcassonne for iOS — released a new iOS game based on the award-winning kids board game "Chicken Cha Cha Cha".

Kids aged 4 and up race animated chickens around a meadow. It's great fun and also a good training for their visual memory and concentration. Parents can customize the difficulty and limit the number of games allowed in a play session -- or just join in.

Chicken Cha Cha Cha has won several awards for Best Children's Game in Germany, France and Finland, including the prestigious "Game of Year" (Spiel des Jahres) award.

Chicken Cha Cha Cha launched in the App Store a short time ago and is available for iPad at a price of $4.99 (USD).
