How often do your kids ask to play games on your phone?
At my house it’s almost a daily occurrence. For the most part, I don’t mind letting my kids play on my phone. But there are plenty of games that take up too much space, aren’t kid friendly or just plain don’t work.
When the folks at Ubisoft asked if I’d review Horse Haven World Adventures, I agreed. I wanted to make sure the app was a functional and kid-friendly addition to our games folder.

Horse Haven is a fun game – and really rather addicting. I played up to level 8 (at which point I was out of coins and stuck!) in just a few hours.
This video does a great job of showing how to play the game.
Colin might have a hard time with parts of the game just because some of the words are too big for him.
Once your horses are grown, you can race them in steeplechases to earn coins. But make sure they have energy or you’ll have to make an in-app purchase to be allowed to race them.
The girl on the left side is where you’ll find the quests. When you finish a quest, you can claim your ‘prize’ – in the form of coins and stars. I can’t figure out what the exclamation point is for because there isn’t one when you click on the girl. It’s not enough to deter me from playing, though.
Horse Haven is a large app, but I think it’s worth it. The game works well and it’s very family-friendly!
