It's D.W. to the rescue! Help Arthur's little sister save a lost unicorn using the power of rainbow foods in this educational app from PBS KIDS. This arcade-style game encourages healthy snacking for kids ages 4-6 and Arthur fans of all ages.
JOIN THE ADVENTURE
It's a long way from Elwood City to Unicornia. To help the unicorn get home, you'll need to help DW gallop, jump, and super jump through three fantastical worlds -- Forest, Castle, and Clouds -- with 12 levels of increasing difficulty.
COLLECT YUMMY FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Power up! To fuel your adventure, you'll need to eat a rainbow of energy-packed snacks. Eat all the colors of the rainbow by collecting 12 kinds of fruits and veggies: strawberries and apples; oranges and carrots; bananas and pineapples; bell peppers and broccoli; blueberries and plums; and grapes and eggplant. Yum!
AVOID ENERGY-ZAPPING JUNK FOOD
Watch out! You'll need to avoid the junk food or you'll run out of energy. There are 6 kinds of junk food that will try to slow you down: sodas, chips, cookies, donuts, French fries, and candy bars.

D.W.'s Unicorn Adventure features characters from the popular PBS KIDS TV series ARTHUR, the longest running kids animated series on television. ARTHUR chronicles the adventures of Arthur, an eight-year old aardvark, his family (including his little sister, D.W.) and his friends through engaging, emotional stories that explore issues from a kids' point of view. The TV series and its web site are designed to foster an interest in reading and writing, and to encourage positive social skills. Over the past 15 seasons, Arthur has remained one of the highest-rated weekly series on PBS, and has won numerous awards, including the George Foster Peabody Award, a BAFTA, and six Daytime Emmys®.

A really fun and challenging game and I think I
It has the nice educational/healthy eating theme, but mostly it's just a really fun game to play. It's the right level for me anyway (adult, not a big gamer, but reasonably coordinated). The levels start out fairly easy, but gradually become more challenging and then the last two are quite hard. Graphics are charming- love especially the background environments and the giant UGG-style purple boots (indicating the double jump power) the unicorn gets when you move up to a certain level. Music is perfect: energizing, but in a pleasantly ambient way. Highly recommended!
Not just for kids
This app is super duper! The art and animations are da bomb. The soundtrack is actually really good too. Well worth the $1.99.
Great game for kids
The initial simplicity is deceiving- this game requires good thinking ahead skills. Well done!
