Doodle Jump: Hop The Movie

The new kids' movie "Rio" hitched its tie-in wagon to Angry Birds, with great success. The lesser-known "Hop" went the Doodle Jump route, and the results are no less entertaining. Tilt your iDevice to control E.B. (the Easter Bunny's son) as he hops ever higher, gathering power-ups and, of course, Easter eggs. It's relentlessly fun, just like the original on which it's based.

Egg vs. Chicken

6 of 6 Once Upon An App

The Tale of Peter Rabbit Special Easter Edition

"The Tale of Peter Rabbit" isn't an inherently Easter-themed story, but this app makes the leap by adding an Easter egg to each black-and-white illustration. When dragged to a designated "hidden" object, the full-color version is revealed. Plus, kids can color the illustrations themselves--so it's like a storybook and coloring book in one app. (99 cents)
