Peppa Pig: The Game (DS)
Advantages: The games are easy and perfect for the younger children!
Disadvantages: For a child none, for me a kid at heart, loads as the games are not challenging enough for me lol
I havn't bought my twin boys many DS games for Christmas as the ones I have been buying I have been trying out myself first to see if they are any good.
As my twin sons are only young I was concentrating on the age reccomendation of the DS games and characters that they like.
One of the games I have bought them is Peppa Pig 'The Game'.
This for me is perfect for any young child, who is just beginning with the gaming world and learning about the actual world to. Note Dooyoo'ers this is NOT one for adults lol.
I'm terrible for loving children's games, and I love storymode games where you play throughout the story, such as Toy Story, so I was a little disapointed when I learnt that this is not a story mode game and is actually aimed at young children, like it's supposed to be! *Sulks* lol
There are different games to play, but your child doesn't have to do them in any particular order, they can just pick and choose, until they probably find their favourites and stick to them. Some of the games offer two options, the timed option which is a little more difficult as your child has to complete the tasks in the allotted time, or the untimed version.
To play the games your child either has to use the buttons or the stylus, mainly the stylus in fact. Although for a very young child such as my 3 year olds this may sound difficult, the tasks they have to do are extremely straightforward and there is literally no difficulty in using the stylus to play these games.
The game has a narrator, the same as in the Peppa Pig programme itself who sometimes talks throughout the games telling us what Peppa and George are doing. Any music or sounds throughout the games are the same as what are heard on the programme also making this very exciting and much more appealing for a young child too.
Muddy Puddles has to be the main game to mention as this is Peppa Pig's favourite thing to do in the programme so was bound to feature in 'The Game' somehow. Muddy puddles appear on the screen, and your child has to tap the stylus on the muddy puddles to make Peppa 'jump in muddy puddles', they have to try and jump in as many Puddles as they can simply by tapping the muddy puddle space. The puddles don't appear too quickly nor disapear too quickly either so the game is not rushed nor frustrating for a child it's just a way for them too enjoy one of their favourite characters, favourite games.
This is basically how all the games work, your child has to tap the screen to find george in hiding places in the game of Hide and Seek, or to colour in pictures they will have to tap on their chosen colour and then their chosen space on a picture shown, this is actually a good way for a child to learn colours or even items of clothing, all this can be done in the Colouring In activity. Your children can wash Daddy Pig's car, again just by tapping the screen on the car that's shown, to either spray water on it or wash it with a sponge, another easy and straightforward game, this one called, yes you've guessed it Carwash. The other games are all easy, straightforward and so simple to play and learn, and for a young child, enjoy to. Every game is basic and simple, but they are perfect for a younger child to play so I am really glad I bought it.
These games can help encourage hand eye co-ordination skills, concentration and most importantly independance I've noticed. The entertainment aspect of this DS game is the fact it is based around the Peppa Pig programme and it's characters, this for a child is brilliant, they have control of some of their favourite characters, get to hear the familiar Peppa music, and listen to the voice of the likes of Peppa and George too. The actual games however are definitely for children learning and developing their skills.
Summary: A lovely game for children to play!
