Apps for Kids 003: Kingdom Rush

In episode 3, Jane and I review Kingdom Rush, a fun tower defense game that's available for free play on the web, and on the iPad for $2.99.

We're going to start this podcast with some tips from Jane's older sister Sarina, who holds the family record in the game Temple Run, which we reviewed in Apps for Kids episode 1.
