What our experts think
This vibrant game provides a great way to introduce children to coding and programming language. The space theme was very popular with our testers and once the instructions had been explained, they needed little adult help to get going.
We found the game encouraged the children to get quite competitive, which is great for helping their understanding of the feelings associated with winning and losing. This also developed perseverance – our testers had to keep going, in order to collect all the stars! We found that the younger children particularly enjoyed moving the rockets along the planets, counting as they went, which was great for reinforcing their numeracy skills.
