I love educational apps for my kids. They make wonderful educational tools for homeschooling too and when you can make learning fun, to me that is a win win for everyone. We were asked to try the game Give a Dam free for iPhone or ipad by Chupa Chups.
In this dam building game, save the Chupa Chups flavors in Give A Dam by guiding them down an extremely dangerous river! One wrong step in this great touch physics game and the flavors will submerge in the deep end of a waterfall. Only you have the power to help the campers sink or swim! When I first started this, all my guys were falling off into the waterfall very qickly but after a few tries and getting the hang of it I was keeping it steady. My oldest son (13) was a natural, of course! Kids are such naturals at this game. I love games like this where they think they are ONLY playing a game but they are really learning. This one has some great physic lessons.
Chupa Chups, it is a lollipop company that was founded in Spain in 1958 that live by this “Life Less Serious” philosophy.
The Give A Dam game has 120 different levels that you can unlock. Some added features are:
Honestly, I’m not much for the name of the game. I totally get the wording and why the creators did it but I could do without it, there is no reason to have the kids saying the name that really could mean something else I wouldn’t want them saying. That is the only thing I didn’t care for, it really is a fun, educational game that your family would enjoy and for free, who can beat that?
