Great Concept But would like to see
I listened to Angel on the Breakfast Club. I was excited about her vision and immediately thought I need to play the game. The concept is great but I think it’s not connected enough for me. I was hoping to see more of the game connected to learning. For instance, if I wanted to use the app for my kids (8 and 4) I would like to start them with a game that shows them concepts and not just allow them to hear concepts. I played the game a good hour and heard the same facts on the Fico Score. Would have been great to put the concept to work within the game other than matching like Candy crush. But again I think it’s a great concept (teaching financial literacy in an educational game app) but just thinking the game and info should tie together. Keep pushing sis because I think you moving in the right direction.
I enjoy it and although there aren’t a lot of facts, I learned the facts there are.
The only improvements I’d say to add are, the levels take FOREVER. Like 20 minutes to do one level. So the same facts repeat a good five times sometimes. And the combo that clears most of the board doesn’t decrease your debt at all. I’ll be hitting large combos but the larger the combo, the less it does for decreasing the debt, the longer the level is. So I feel there needs a fix there because what gets people about these games is how you can play a level in five minutes or less.
I haven’t been able to get past level 5. And although this isn’t a big deal, there is a spelling error on level five in the word interest (spelled “interst”). But again that’s not a big deal.
Great potential, but work to be done
In the first few minutes playing this game, I learned information about the components of my FICO score that I never knew. So, there's great educational potential, even if - for now, that comes in the form of a slightly robotic sounding voice.
However, I stopped playing after a few days for several reasons. I would prefer shorter rounds/levels, which were made even longer because the game would freeze up. The voice and music would continue playing, but the game board gets stuck. Sometimes, closing and then reopening the app worked. On more than one occasion, though, I had to delete and then reinstall the app.
I plan to check back next month to see if at least the freezing has been resolved before recommending this to anyone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
