The Madhouse Mini-testers always get excited when we receive a review code for an app featuring one of their favourite TV heroes so I knew they - and 3-year-old Pierre in particular - would be over the moon to try out the new Mike the Knight app called The Great Gallop. Sure enough, when he recognised Mike and his trusty steed Galahad, Pierre couldn't wait to play.
I'd seen the three little pictures on the main game page with the names Training, Jam Tart Trouble and Mr Cuddles Muddle, so I thought there were three different games to play but they are actually all very similar. In all three, you ride Galahad along and make him avoid obstacles and jump in the air to catch things - helmets, jam tarts or frogs, depending on which game you've selected.
It's a very simple game that even the youngest player can master quite successfully but it is very repetitive so it won't maintain interest levels for as long as the apps that come with lots of different mini games to play. It is only 69p though, so you can't go far wrong !
