No Good = Bad
My nephew doesn't like it.
The user clicks the screen and it goes to the next vehicle. That is it! I do not know what this game's creators think "fully interactive" means, but this is very unengaging.
There are very few vehicles (12 total) and it gets repetetive quickly for the child. Too simple for children 3 and up, and since the user must click the center of the screen, it is too difficult for most children 2 and younger.
Awful, they should not charge money for this. The game could be designed in a day by a student for computer programing class home work.
The pictures in the app store page above are a bit misleading. There is only one picture and one vehicle on screen at a time. The user clicks the center of the screen and it goes to an image of smoke puffs, then the user clicks the center smoke puff and it reveals the next vehicle. My nephew didn't care for the smoke puff screen.
Perhaps if the game were actually intereactive, such as clicking different parts of the car to trigger actions, then it would be interesting for young children. Or if there were varying levels of interaction that could be set, so that as the child gets bored of just clicking, they could progress to a higher level of interaction and stay engaged and learning. Or if there were a bit of a story. But the current version is awful in every way. It is a lousy version of a virtual story book.
You would be better off buying a virtual story book.
Fun for vehicle enthusiasts aged 1-3
My 28 month old son loves all kinds of vehicles AND also loves peekaboo apps, so this is a perfect combo. Everything is controlled with a simple click of the mouse, so he can sit and play while I am nearby. He loves listening to the sounds and guessing what type of vehicle is hiding behind the clouds.
The sounds are well-done and spot-on. There are separate US and UK settings in the options menu, which I mention since a previous review said the sounds are British. The art style is fun and modern.
This app could be improved with additional vehicles--there aren't that many and it gets repetitive quickly. (I know my son would love to see a subway train and a city bus in the game!) Also--someone mentioned in a previous review that one must click the center of the screen, but this has not been my experience--I believe you can click anywhere on the screen.
Overall, a fun app that will entertain the younger set, probably under 3.
20 month old loves it
My 20 month old grandson likes this one. He asks for it by saying "car, car." Although he can't manipulate the mouse, he does all the clicking to change the screen at his own pace. He enjoys hearing and seeing the different types of vehicles.
Because of its limitations, it is over priced. It would be better if the mouse didn't have to be in the middle of the screen all the time. He does stop playing after the limited number of vehicles rotate through the course two or three times.
