Happi & the Pirates | comprehensive educational and logical kids app
Well, this educational iPad app for kids certainly has a lot to offer, especially as it is full of creative ideas and really captivates children with it’s awesome gameplay, even adults will tend to get stuck on this app and on their iPad.
What to expect of this app, which is suitable for kids ages 7+, is easy to say, if you’re familiar with the Computer game classic “Minesweeper”, which is similar to at least one aspect of this educational game and is still pretty popular too.
Let’s take a look at the screenshot first. The main game is a combination of a crossword puzzle and Minesweeper and this fantastic combination makes the game even more fun to play!
Kids need to find words on the Island landscape that are buried, which start from a letter box which is exposed from the start. Hopefully, they’ll dig each field considerately, because if they come across a wrong field, a pirate bomb will explode. Experimenting and trying out is really not going to work at all, the only thing that counts is the logically correct continuation of the letters to a wanted word.
On the left side of the screen are hints, which will help kids to see which words need to be found. All words have been provided with an audio response.
In comparison to the Minesweeper game, kids will not have a game over when they approach a bomb, but instead, they only loose access to the treasure chest, which are relevant to a completely different logic game which starts after the crossword.
So after all of the words have been found without any mistakes, the view changes to the treasure chests, which still need to unlocked. Kids will also need a lot of deductive skills for this. The keys to the chests will be found by solving some small but diversified logical tasks.
But what’s this? Of course there is lots of gold in the treasure chests but also some useful tools and clues to an even bigger treasure, which kids will discover in other following logical games.
We don’t want to tell you too much, but you’ll need to collect puzzle parts of treasure chests, look for the treasures with the help of the tools and at the end solve a big end-puzzle.
Kids won’t even realize how much they’re actually training their spelling skills and logical skills, whilst playing this captivating learning app. As we’ve said already, even adults or teachers will be captivated in an entertaining way.
Besides the spelling as another main discipline, other skills are challenged and supported, which we would like to quote from the iTunes description:
In order to solve the final puzzle and open the pirates treasure you and your child/students must prove your worth in a wide variety of disciplines such as:
★ Logical Thinking
★ Deductive Reasoning
★ Puzzle Solving
★ Word Building
You will also find that the app has been recommended for the use in lessons at schools, in the iTunes description, which we find extremely interesting.
Happi & The Pirates is a great learning activity for both home and school. Timed activities in the game can be disabled for a more school appropriate learning environment. The app also lend itself to interesting student/teacher discussions with its creative twists on spelling, problem solving and word construction.
