Greetings from the Gloop family and the Fred Rogers Center! Alien Assignment is a fun game that encourages problem solving and discovery. The Gloop family’s spaceship has crashed and they need your help to repair their spaceship! Take pictures of your world to help the spaceship computer remember how to fix the ship and fly this lovable family of aliens back to their home planet.
Follow a simple Scavenger Hunt and snap photos of everyday items using the camera on your mobile device. Listen closely as Gleep and Glop give you fun clues that will have you up on your feet and searching for that perfect item to photograph.
Then, review your photos with a grown-up to fix broken parts of the spaceship with each picture! Have fun!
Parents and caregivers: Alien Assignment provides a lot of chances for adults and children to play together. When children show-off their photos or hand the phone to their grown-ups, adults can use that moment as a chance to talk about what their children took photographs of, and why. You may be surprised by some of the creative answers!
Ratings and Reviews
Great app for kids!
This app encourages children to use their reasoning and creativity. I love that players need to check in with an adult every so often so parents can see what they are up to. I also appreciate that the photos are not added to my album like with some other apps. Plus no ads or in app purchases. A big hit with my two 5-year old girls and with me, too!
Excellent for 4+!
My nearly 4 year old loves this game, and it gets her thinking creatively and solving problems. I also like the parental involvement, and how there are no clickable ads or purchases in the game.
