Several kinds of Peablins that require different approaches
Over one hundred hand crafted levels
Enter the Whispering Woods and meet the Peablins! They are curious little creatures who share a common belief: hold hands with your friends and the Bogeyman won't take you. This has worked as long as they can remember so it must be true. Join the Peablins on their quest to find all their siblings and cousins! Basic gameplay: drag and drop the Peablins so that all the hands in the level are joined and all the Peablins are happy. And remember: Leave no hand behind!
Peablins are cute and friendly they want to hold your hand. It makes them feel safe from the bogeymen. Some Peablins have one hand and some have many more. They want all of their hands held. Once you get all of Peablins hands holding another hand you have won a level.
Some of the positions on the screen are blocked with stones and the puzzle is to carefully arrange the Peablins to beat the level. All of them do not have to be in the same group but just arranged properly that all of them have all of their hands held.
There are different kinds of Peablins and you have to learn multiple ways to get them to rotate and to hold hands. Overall this is a very good game. I don't like Flurry Analytics in children's games and the More Games button is to easy to find and use. I ranked this app at 4 stars because of that and if the More Games button had a parental lock on it then it would have been a 5 star game.
The Extras button on the screen does contain a more games button the will take you to multiple ways to get to the web. There you can purchase more games with real money. If you are letting children use your tablet to play this game make sure that you turn on the Airplane Mode to disconnect the WIFI. The app will play well with it turned off.
I got this game back on August 13, 2013 and the price was $1.99 so it has gone up in price. It is a good game and as a FAOTD it is wonderful.

The app does contain Flurry Analytics that does monitor your game play and behavior. It can also be used to monitor the software's performance. One scanning app pointed out that the app contained OpenFeint at one time. OpenFeint is now a discontinued software package.
The app installed 26.63Mb onto my device. It put 3.13Mb into my device memory and 23.50MB onto my SD card memory.
Joining Hands is another new game in a genre similar to Cut The Rope, Pudding Monsters, and other fun level games. The game begins fairly easily, asking the user to move cute little characters around a board in such a say that they all can "hold hands". The thing is, some have one hand, some have two, and others have three, four, even five! And to pass the level, all hands from everyone must be holding someone else's hand.
Sound simple? Then add a few other things into the mix: Characters who are less flexible in how you can configure them; characters who NEVER want to hold hands (and are unhappy if they're even near anyone else); reshape the board to make it more difficult, and on and on. The game gets continually more difficult, and should present a challenge even to the most logical puzzle aficianado.
To add to the game's "fun", the background music is very up-beat; and the characters themselves are animated -- becoming "happy" when they are holding hands, and "sad" when they are not; and even doing a bit of a "dance" when they all are holding hands and the level is solved. It's hard NOT to like this game -- it's a very cheery pastime.
I agree with most reviewers who has diligently gave their honest feedback. This game is indeed cute to look at and game-play is near perfect. It responds to touch nicely and graphics are well presented. The puzzles are nice and challenging. There are some modules that do mobile 'analytics' and 'monetization' seen even in the paid version of this game (Flurry Analytics) which I personally do not like and could be of some privacy concerns to users who play this game with Wi-Fi ON.
I have seen these types of modules in very popular games before and even from trusted developers and no one really cares, But the real reason for losing 1 star is the price. I think it will be fair if developer & Amazon releases this with revised price of 99c.
I am a huge fan of puzzle games and this is by far one of my favorites. You have different little animals and you have to try to make sure they are all holding hands. The different creatures have different qualities that make it more challenging to hook hands together. That way as you level up it is more and more tricky to find the right combinations. yes, it is also point based so you want to try to get all three stars by making the least amount of moves when hooking hands up. It is really cute and fun and TOTALLY addicting. There is a second version of this game, but I really want to finish the first before I move on. I changed phones and it make me start from the beginning, poo.
This is a really, really cute game about darling little Peebles that want to hold hands. Each is contained in a hexagonal cell and they each vary in the number of hands they have...The challenge is to get ALL the hands joined, which requires some tricky maneuvering. The look, story and sound are superior and I can see how kids would LOVE this cute, cute game. Me, at 63, not so much although as the levels advance, the game gets harder as barriers appear in pivotal cells and make the hand-joining more difficult. I can see adults liking the greater challenge. I am too devoted an HO point and click fan! I got this as a FAOD to play with grandkids during holidays and I'm sure they'll love it.
What a fantastic little puzzle game! Don't let the cutesy graphics fool you, the difficulty ramps up from gentle tutorial levels up to fiendishly difficult levels by the last few sets. An adorable cast of characters each with interesting mechanics keep this game interesting for a long time. No IAP or other annoyances, just a well-polished and brilliantly executed game. Absolutely worth the few bucks.
Plus, my 4-year-old daughter loves it which is another plus. It teaches her to think critically and solve problems while masquerading as a cutesy plaything. Definitely recommended.
