Zap A Minion

Zap A Minion is a FREE app...and yes, it is based on Despicable Me!  This app is similar to Whac-a-Mole games.  You can select levels: easy, medium, or hard.  You select a screen background (nice if visual contrast is something you want to modify).  You can also select a tools to zap minions with: freeze ray, laser, etc.  Goals for this game would include speed/timing, visual scanning, fine motor, etc.  It's also a great app for taking a speedy break during a rigorous session.  It is also on my list of available game apps that can be earned for hard work, completing a lengthy project, remembering homework, appropriate behavior, etc.  Over the summer, I made a chart of app icons for such achievements.  Students will be able to see the chart in my office and work towards earning opportunities to try various apps following completion of specific goals.
