How to play:
Tilt the screen to collect the orbs.
Green orbs: are worth points - you have to collect them all to get to the next level.
Yellow orbs: give you more time.
Red orbs: deduct points so watch out for them!
Silver orbs: worth bonus points - grab it if you can!
Tilt Every Way... Great Fun To Play...
The app Professor Chomp is one of the first I have seen of its kind to have children use fine and gross motor skills to play a game based around tilting the screen to collect the orbs. The professor needs to recharge his battery so the children are helping him by playing the game over and over again collecting more orbs for him to make magic happen at the end of each round. I think this app is correctly suited for the age population it targets. The game itself is very engaging to young children and is very appropriate way to learn to play. It also challenges the young children because they only have a short time to collect the power they need.
In the game, the children collect orbs that give you points that you need for the battery, silver ones give bonus points, and the yellow grant bonus playing time, we want to stay away from the red orbs though, they take stuff away. With this being the premise for the app, the children were very engaged and had fun avoiding all of the red orbs and trying to collect as many as they could to see what the professor would create next. It is great fun for all children.
Great but lacks long-term challenges
I love how addicting this game is, it is like Tetris in the way that once you start you get pulled in and challenge yourself to go faster! However, there isn't a long-term challenge in the game - it is the same game every time you play and it doesn't get more difficult over time. The lack of challenge doesn't hold my interest for long and I can't see it interesting a younger player longer, but possibly shorter period of time.
Family and young learning fun.
Professor Chomp is a nicely polished children’s app that includes a cute main character with voice audio. You’re in charge of refilling Professor Chomp’s battery by tilting your device to collect or avoid orbs so he can complete his experiments. In short, this is a good app for children aiding in fine motor skill development, counting, and other developmental skills; but with included airplay mirroring it can also be fun for the whole family.
