Peppa Pig: The Game (DS)
Advantages: Great for the pre-school age bracket as simple, educational yet fun.
Disadvantages: Can't unlock additional features unless playing against the clock.
This is a really straightforward game which is very much suited to the pre-school bracket.
What is important to realise here is that basically this 'game' is actually being marketed in part as an educational and developmental programme as well as for its entertainment value.
In the instruction booklet under how each game is played is an explanation of the skills the game will help develop in your child as they play. For example, under the game 'Parrot' it states that: 'Words and phrases put together to make the Parrot speak is a good way to encourage children's own communciation skills. Lots of fun can be had developing vocabulary amd making up sensibe and silly things for the Parrot to say.' (see below)
Rather than a story based game this one is made up of short, simple games as well as having a colouring activity where children can choose and colour in pictures, saving up to eight of them at a time to create a picture gallery. You need the DS stylus to play this and all other games.
The games range from flipping pancakes to getting polly parrot to speak by choosing items and then listening whilst peppa constructs a sentence out of it to teach polly, whereby fairly amusing combinations (for a 3+ year old) can be produced (e.g. Suzy Sheep is a funny banana)!
The games can be played against a time limit or without a time limit in free play which is good as some young children do not like the pressure of having a time limit. The only downside being, if they choose not to play against the clock they cannot obtain stars in the Achievement screen and thereby unlock additional items or features.
In two of the games (Muddy Puddles and Kite Flying) you can choose to play as either Peppa or George otherwise they both feature together in most of the other games.
Summary: A fun, simple developmental based game.
