And so starts the story of Go Kids: Save Paris!. I’m always excited to hear about new travel apps for kids. There aren’t a lot of apps geared toward travel specifically for kids who travel often with their parents. When I heard about the app, Go Kids: Save Paris!, I was instantly intrigued. First of all, its names captures all the elements of an adventure game – saving people and going places! Love it. Aliens taking over one of the most beautiful cities in the world? We will be in Paris this summer and you had better believe, my kids will be all over this app, learning about Paris while saving it from being invaded by Aliens. When we are sitting in a cafe’ drinking cafe’ au lait and munching on croissants, my son will be on a secret mission.
Save Paris! includes 10 different secret agent missions, a mini travel guide featuring pictures and information about Paris and a multi-player setting for up to 4 players. Each level includes a “dossier” of facts that must be memorized before players can defeat the Gloopy alien army and save Paris through a series of challenging memory matching games and arcade-style games. Missions include: Paris sightseeing and famous landmarks, eating and dining vocabulary, French customs and traditions, colors, numbers and basic sayings and well known French individuals.
What better way for a kid to tour Paris? This is the first city to launch; I can only imagine that they have others in store. The game is totally original and innovative, and really fun for kids. It’s certainly unique and one that all kids are sure to love. If you are like us, and go on long journeys, you’ll want to be armed with original games such as Save Paris! that the kids won’t tire of. Plus, it will make learning about a new city electrifying.
The game was made for kids ages 7 and up and is available for $3.99 in the iTunes App store.
