My boys were absolutely delighted to see a new game arrive for their Leapfrog Ultra.
Adventure Sketchers was great because it encouraged them both to develop an interest in drawing/colouring in as it was incorporated into the adventure. My eldest loves Maths and English but is not overly keen on drawing but for a computer game he is willing to make an exception! This game gives him the confidence to draw things he might not normally.
It is quite exciting rescuing nublins trapped in cages, jumping on bad guys and later shooting them with magic powers and collecting all the gold coins to unlock treasure chests. Along your journey you have a very manly sounding fairy to give you some guidance (encouraging you to stay in the lines or telling you what to do in different sections of the game).
One of my favourite parts was hearing my boys do little voice recordings to be added to the game. When insulting Grumpus the evil wizard youngest was calling him “you old brain” and “you ugly bean”! haha and the superhero’s catchphrase was “widdle waddle, donut waddle” – could you imagine Superman flying in saying that! But it’s great to see what your children will come up with and hear their cute voices.
I think the game is brilliant for young imaginations as they are involved in building the game, the characters, the sound effects and even the ledges to jump across! My 4 year old and my 6 year old give it a big thumbs up.
Available to buy from the leapfrog website but keep an eye on Amazon they had it for a bargain £10 recently (just gone out of stock boo).
I also wanted to draw your attention to a Leapfrog Children and Technology guide as I think its very enlightening and useful with so many children playing on adult phones and tablets, you can learn some techniques to keep them safe (or just order them their own LeapPad Ultra!).
