Title: Jack and Sara: Educational game
Genre: Adventure, Casual
Release Date: 2 May, 2018
Fun game for toddlers and pre schoolers. Super short for those kids with short attention spans. Pretty graphics. 10\/10.. I know I'm not the target audience for this game, but it took 10 minutes to play through and it didn't seem educational if I were, which I was once at least.
The main gripe is that while it does tell you when the answer is wrong, there isn't any penalty for being wrong, you can just click on all the possibilities until you get the right one (with the exception of the 'match the pairs' mini-game which does reset). You also get told "You completed the task perfectly" and unlock an Achievement regardless of how many wrong answers you give, which seems less useful for an 'education' game as while you may not want a negative failstate, there isn't even a neutral 'room for improvement' state.
The art was fine, the voice acting was as you'd expect in an announcer in a budget priced kids educational game and as far as the gameplay; it functioned properly.
However, 'Tips' in the Settings menu is mispelled as Tipps; for shame, cheap educational game on Steam, for shame & the Achievements description use both color and colour, which isn't really incorrect, it is just odd to see 2 different forms of english in the one screen.
Recommended because it is basically functional, but this is mostly basic flashcard stuff like 'count the objects in this scene' and 'sort these coloured objects into like groups'; most parents probably already have a bunch of this same stuff already but for under $2 it isn't offensively priced, but it is of questionable educational value.
*Played 1 and a half times to see if the solutions randomised to give it a bit of additional length, but they appear to just be single patterns, so for the intended audience you're maybe getting a half hour out of this unless they are super into the art style of Jack and Sara..
